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.
