Using an Auckland Employment Agency Powered By Docstoc
					If you're looking for a job in New Zealand's largest city, using the services of an
Auckland employment agency can help you find a good job that's well-suited to your
skills.

Also called personnel agencies, these are companies who have a double-allegiance;
both to you as a job-seeker and to a large array of prospective employers who pay
them to screen applicants and send the best candidates for personal interviews.

Auckland employment agencies will do everything possible to help you find a great
job, including assisting you with writing your resume and giving you necessary
information about making a positive impression with a potential employer at your
interview.

Remember, no employment agency guarantees that you will be hired; their only task
is to arrange suitable interviews for you that match your skills and the needs of the
prospective employers who are their clients.

Auckland employment agencies, since they are private businesses for profit, charge
their employer clients a fee for using their services.

To maintain their professional reputation and profit from your interaction with them,
they will aggressively advocate for you with a prospective employer.

To do this successfully, the agency will have a thorough understanding of an
employer's needs, the skills and experience of job seekers required, salary and other
benefits provided by the employer, and opportunities for career advancement.

The agency will discuss all this information with you; this way, you need not go to a
job interview "cold," without knowing everything that the job entails.

When you contact an Auckland employment agency and arrange a meeting with an
employment manager, you will need to bring several things with you:

documents of your identity (a drivers' license and/or passport will be fine),

a transcript from a college,

university or technical/vocational school

previous job evaluation reports

any awards or certificates that you achieved at your previous job,

documentation of your military service, if any, including your manner of discharge,
and any other documents that reflect well upon your character and ability to do the job
for which you are searching.

A commonly asked question is whether you can use both an Auckland employment
agency as well as a similar agency in another location.

The answer is that yes, you certainly can. For example, using an Auckland agency
will help you discover jobs available to you in that area. If you are not adverse to
re-locating or are currently not residing in Auckland, it is in your best interests to
contact another agency as well.
