selecting recruitment companies, what do you think ?
I have a question for you guys (or maybe a few!). When you go about selecting recruitment companies to deal with, how do you go about it and do you use differnet companies for differing levels of position? I suppose also another relevent question is why do you use them! I tend to find that in this game its generally good talkers on the phone who can make a fairly accurate match to a spec with a cv, but the funny thing how do they know whether the person is right when they dont know the market place, or specifically work in one sector, the funny thing is even they dont know how they do it and cant explain any specific methodology, please stop me if you think I am talking rubbish. Does anyone know how they actually do this? is it just searching a database with a word search. I am fairly sure that whatever you may think 90% of agencies generally get a CV by hook or by crook, not even meet the person, somethimes not even speak to them, change the CV etc (you know what I mean) and send them over and hope one sticks. Do you actually have any idea what you are actually paying for? Dont worry this is leading somewhere I am just interested to hear your thoughts.
