Founded in 1988 by Gerhard Benneck Contacts & Management is recruiting agency inDüsseldorfGermany, which handles national and international manpower. It initially focused on advertising based searches and gradually moved onto direct executive search popularly termed as ‘headhunting’ by using unique recruitment strategies and techniques.
Recruiting firms may contact applicants during work hours. This is often only a short phone call in which the searcher gives a brief description of the position to be filled. If the candidate seems interested then the consultant will now contact you in the evening. He will tell you a bit more about the position and will expect you to describe your experience to date.
Recruitment agencies are free of charge for candidates. Recruitment Agencies are working on request and are paid for by their clients. Therefore, there are no costs for you as a candidate. You are getting help at no cost!
Recruitment agencies have up to date knowledge about the labor market. They know which sectors and companies are offering exciting opportunities for people with your knowledge and expertise, and which expectations are realistic.
They have a great network. They can often quickly get you in contact with interesting clients and projects.They save your valuable time and effort, they get things done really fast because of their market reach and existing connections.
Good recruitment agencies will work with both the client and the candidate and will try to help the candidate to make a good impression on the potential employers. They help to bring out the positives of the candidate and project why he would be a perfect fit to the client. They are also aware of the style and format of the interview and prepare you well.
The agency will know what the company can and cannot afford, they also know what other applicants with similar experience and skill sets are looking for and they will know what workers in other companies are getting paid to do the exact same job. They have information about current recruiting trends and inside company knowledge.
Recruitment agencies have access to jobs that you as a job seeker often cannot reach. Through many years of partnership with clients, agencies are often the first to hear about profiles that are needed. They also keep you updated on the process, while it may take ages to get the human resource department to respond when applying directly.
Having said this, the clients of recruiting companies are the companies themselves. Recruiting companies will usually not start looking for a job for an individual candidate. Therefore it is a good idea to register with the recruitment company and get your CV into their database but don’t expect them to do your job search for you!
