There are a number of benefits in working with employment agencies:
- They can help you match your knowledge and skill set to numerous openings in a range of industries.
- They typically work with employers in locations where you would like to work.
- They are always seeking qualified candidates.
- Most agencies fill both full-time and part-time jobs.
- About one in three part-time jobs lead to full-time jobs with the same employer.
Most employment agencies are reputable and helpful. However, be aware of certain practices that you should try to avoid:
- Make sure there will be no out-of-pocket expense for you in dealing with the agency. The hiring employer should be paying the agency, not you. In your correspondence or meeting with the agency, ask about this so there are no surprises.
- If the employer or the agency mistreats you or disrespects you in any way, don’t hesitate to end the relationship. You are not obligated to stay.
- Be aware that agency representatives are not career counselors. Their goal is to place you in a job quickly. Use the agency for your benefit.
- For your current job search and/or long-term career planning, the Center for Career Development counselors are eager to assist you, whether you are a Drew student or graduate.
