Why Recruitment Agencies Are Better Than Job Board Sites

Why Recruitment Agencies Are Better Than Job Board Sites

In this current climate, finding a job isn’t easy. While job boards are plentiful, there is no better way of finding a job than through recruitment agencies like AA Euro.

Allow us to explain seven reasons why recruitment agencies are better than job board sites:


Direct Access to Decision-makers

When you apply for a job on a job board, your CV may be one of hundreds, making it hard to stand out.

When you apply through a recruitment agency, we first confirm your suitability for the role and then get your CV in front of the people responsible for hiring.

We will chat with you about the role as well as the decision-makers and sell you as the right person for the job. This is something you can’t do when you apply directly yourself.


CV Help and Support

At AA Euro, we invest our time into you and your CV. Your CV is your first impression with a company, therefore it is important to go over it in fine detail to ensure that your skills and experience are a match to the specific job requirements.

More Detail Than Online Channels Can

An online job posting can be vague and go into very much detail.

By having a call with one of our experienced recruiters at AA Euro. We can expand on the role, offering you in detail more about the role, the company and what they are looking for.


Interview Preparation

Your CV has been submitted and you’ve been offered an interview…. what are the next steps?

At AA Euro, we will provide interview preparation over the phone or via video conference, go through the type of questions that will be asked, insights into the company and offer guidance on the best way to answer their questions.

We want you to be fully confident walking into the interview, knowing the job is yours.

Negotiation On Your Behalf

Let’s talk salary – towards the final stages of the recruitment process, salary negotiations take place.

We know that negotiating your salary and benefits can be unnerving. You don’t know how the company is willing to go.

We’ll have the difficult conversation for you. We know what to ask, how to ask and what is attainable.


Constructive Feedback

If you have ever applied for a role directly or through a job board, you know that more often than not, you don’t hear anything back. Have you moved on to the next round? Was your CV up to par? Was someone more experienced chosen?

Your AA Euro recruiter can find this all out for you, as well as keeping you updated on how your application is doing.

We can also provide you with other information such as how many other candidates are through to final stages or if there have been any changes.


Free – No Cost

As the hiring company pays us for finding excellently talented people like you, your salary is 100% yours and us finding you your dream role has no effect on your finances.
