If you are new to working with an agency please know that agencies do not charge you a fee if you are referred to or placed at a company. The employer engages an agency to find the type of employee they are seeking and they pay a fee for doing so. Our role as a recruitment agency is to make a good fit to meet the employer’s objectives and the job seekers career goals.
Follow the steps below to get the most out of your recruitment agency from the very start!
The first step in engaging an agency is to find those that recruit for the type of position you are interested in. This should be evident from their website. Next, apply online at their site and/or e-mail your resume and a brief summary in the body of the e-mail with:
- What you are looking for (be as specific as possible)
- Key assets you have to offer
- Geographic area you are willing to commute or move to
- Pay range expectations
- When you are available to work (start date, hours)
- Are you open to short-term or contract work
- Examples of the companies you would like to work for, plus any you do not want to work for
When you send this information to Premierehire, we will assess if you are a potential fit for any open positions, and our Executive Recruiters will contact you to request an interview.
Our clients hire mostly on a permanent or contract to permanent basis. Occasionally our clients will have a short term need for a key project, peak workload, or employee leave coverage. These opportunities range from entry level to executive.
In addition to our e-guide (see the right bar to download), we have additional resources for job seekers on our website. Please go to our resource center HERE.
