How to deal with recruitment agencies – CareerCamLive is back

Written by Kimberley Startup | May 1, 2013 | 3 Comments

CareerCamLive, Careercake.com, Job seekers, emnployment adviceAs a job seeker, putting your professional life in the hands of a recruiter can be a risky game.

Will they be able to provide you with genuine, relevant employment opportunities or will you just be another number on their database?

Will you ever receive that feedback you so desperately need?

And why can’t someone just pick up the phone to talk to you rather than a relentless chain of automated emails?

These are just a few of the frustrations many of you feel when using a recruitment agency to find a job.

But don’t panic, CareerCamLive is here to help.

On Tuesday May 7th, 6.30pm (GMT), Aimee Bateman of CareerCake.com, will be providing you with top tips and expert advice to help you get the most out of dealing with recruitment agencies.

Perhaps you want to know what types of agencies are best to use or why your CV always seems to end up in a black hole? Maybe you want to know how to ensure you get feedback or why you’re put forward for positions your skills quite clearly don’t match.

Whatever your question, Aimee will be on hand to offer you genuine advice and insight into the mind of a recruiter to help you understand how, exactly, you can get the most out of your job search.

To pose your recruitment agency-related question to Aimee, simply tweet her using #askcareercam, drop an email to askcareercam@webrecruit.co.uk or post your question to Webrecruit’s Facebook page.  Aimee will then select the best questions to answer on the live show, Tuesday May 7th.

Brought to you by Webrecruit and CareerCake.com, CareerCamLive is a free interactive webinar aimed at helping job seekers to shine in their chosen career.

If you want to know the secrets of how recruitment agencies really operate and how to best use them to advance your professional life, don’t miss CareerCamLive, 7th May at 6.30pm.
