					  Role of Recruitment Consultancies for
               Job Search
Getting the right start in a career is not as easy as it seems while you are in the
college. You have to look for the interest area, what suits your expertise, which
company to choose and which profile will add to your experience. Any new employee
can be successful in their new job only if they join the organization with correct
expectation of their responsibilities, role and future prospects. There are many ways
to search the best job at the start of the career, such as one can go through newspaper
and magazines to search the employment options. This method of job search, no
doubt, offers different options to the job seekers, but there is no one to guide them
where to go, how to apply, how to prepare for the interview etc. For the complete job
search solution, recruitment agencies are the best, as they stay with the job seekers at
each step of their job searching.

Recruitment Consultants play a very important role in bridging the gap about
expectations from both the ends that is candidate’s expectation from company and
vice versa. They prepare the job seekers for confidently facing the interview. They
make the candidates aware of the frequently asked questions and rehearse them in
answering these questions frequently and confidently.

The existence of a placement consultant in the recruitment industry has given a new
hope to both recruiters as well as job seekers. Consultant is a term that has coined for
the middleman who matches a job vacancy with the right candidate as per the
requirements of the company. The services offered by the recruitment consultants are
designed to meet the expectations and requirements of the company by providing
them an eligible candidate. They keep a tab on new opening in different fields and
accordingly offer the best possible opportunities to the job seekers.

A Recruitment Consultant is the intermediary between companies seeking to recruit
professional staff (The client) and professional staff (The candidate) seeking a career
move or contract assignment. However this process has endless variations and
complications depending on such factors as the skills and experience required, the
environment and career development offered. It is the executive recruitment
consultant’s job to facilitate this exercise for both the employer and the job seeker and
to satisfy both.
Candidates depend on recruitment consultants to get advice on salary packages,
prospective employer, the role offered etc. Organizations also take advice from
consultants because sometimes they are unsure about people they have interviewed,
want opinion from another person. A neutral opinion from a trusted person matters a
lot in such cases for job seekers as well as the companies.

Saving time for both parties, the Recruitment Consultants do the initial work for
employers by conducting interviews to determine whether or not the job seekers will
be eligible for the vacancies. During this process, the agencies also extend a helping
hand to job seekers and inform them about what kind of job might best correspond to
their skills and professional experience. Going one step ahead, now quite a large
number of online recruitment companies have been offering their services to make
job hunting process easier. For different reasons employers utilize the services of
recruitment consultancies instead of undertaking the hiring procedure on their own.

It is always in interest of job seekers to speak with the recruitment consultant before
applying for a job. Job seekers can get to know the prospective employer even before
applying for it. Consultants can answer questions about things that are usually not
mentioned on the company’s website. Job seeking IT professionals, especially who
have some experience sometimes apply for similar jobs in multiple companies to
compare the fitment in terms of role/work culture/salary and their growth path. They
can get all information through consultants without applying anywhere.

Companies depend on the consultants to share their post interview feedback to the
candidates, such as negative feedback, hiring plans getting delayed, salary negotiation
with selected candidates and reference checks. Companies also depend to recruiters to
source information on industry trends in hiring, expected salaries by different roles
etc. It is very important for recruitment consultants to be effective in this role of a
trusted advisor. This is the only way you can build to term relationships with your
customers which in this case are both job seekers as well as the organizations.
