Unsure whether to find a job through a recruitment agency? With many bad rumours on recruitment companies, it is perfectly normal for job seekers to question the credibility and effectiveness of their services.
Certainly, a small number of employment agencies may not harbour the best interest of their clients (eg. quickly match job seekers with employers without ensuring their suitability). However, 99% of the job agencies in Singapore aims to develop into Multinational Corporations (MNC) and earn huge profits in the long run.
As such, WorkClass.co will evaluate the pro(s) and con(s) of using recruitment agencies for job search. Let’s find out now!
Recruitment Agencies are external HR firms that find suitable candidates for employers.
There is some confusion between Recruitment and Employment Agencies. Here are some points to clarify the difference between the 2:
Both types of agencies provide Human Resource Solutions to both job seekers and employers. However, their priorities differ.
Regardless of recruitment or employment agencies, both types of HR firms aim to provide employment services to both job seekers and employers.
However, for inexperienced part-time job seekers, it is easier to get a job from employment agencies as they specialise in the Singapore gig economy.
With sufficient knowledge on this topic, let us move on to the benefits of using HR solutions services in Singapore.
Especially for inexperienced job seekers, the job hunt can be rather disappointing when you do not possess the necessary skills for some part-time jobs. Employment agencies will serve as the guarantor that promotes you to the employers. You just have to ensure the quality of your work performance to secure the job after the contract ends. You will find it a lot easier to get a job through agencies.
Most, if not, all recruitment agencies will help you to craft an ideal resume. You can sit back and relax as they send out your resume to a large number of companies.
Big recruitment agencies have a large client base (employers). Using their connections, they can promote your resume to more companies which greatly improves your chances of employment.
Since the recruitment agency gets you the job, they need to be repaid back financially. As such, most agencies will take a portion of your monthly salary as their commission. Some agencies will receive a lump sum from the employer. Although you may receive slightly lower pay from the employer, the overall benefits still outweigh the disadvantage as you get hired quickly and easily.
Since most agency jobs are on a contract basis, it is not unconfirmed whether you will be working for long. Don’t be too pessimistic because most employers will tend to keep experienced workers so they do not waste time retraining others.
Finding a job through a reliable agency is the key to job stability. Big job agencies normally have many MNC(s) and reputable SME(s) on their platform. These employers, being of a certain size, can provide you with better pay and work condition. Here are some big recruitment agencies to look out for:
