Recruitment Firms Best For Jobs

Staffing firms are the most effective mechanism for job seekers to find jobs – but only 3% of candidates seek them out as their first source for job hunting, according to the results of a new CareerBuilder/Inavero survey.

Speaking at the International Confederation of Private Employment Agencies’ (Ciett) World Employment Conference in London, CareerBuilder’s Eric Gilpin said: “You’re not where they start [their job search] – but you are the most effective,”

Candidates who engage with agencies get 45% more interviews than those who do not, he added.

So what is stopping you?
