Interview with a recruiting agency: The job seeker perspective

 Have you seen job adverts where the recruiting company in not mentioned? They will always start with the phrase, ‘our client……..’ or any other of their choice. What should you do and at www.careerstom.com we advise you to research about the employer? Many companies run job adverts and omit their identity, sectors they operate in or their addresses in preference of newspaper publishers’ contacts. Some of the adverts in newspapers or websites carry scanty information and request interested candidates to forward their details to a postal address. Others use proxy recruitment agencies that don’t indicate their client’s profile.

While it’s true that an employers are at liberty to do what pleases them — after all they are paying for the advert — they have to consider that there are qualified employees who are not willing to send off their details to the unknown organization.

Booking an advert with scanty job information and no company profile, will put off qualified job seekers, moreover, this makes the company look unprofessional and makes the assumption that since the job market is saturated with many desperate job seekers, the advertiser will automatically receive many applicants.

Getting a job the hard way when you can’t get one.

There is very little in life more discouraging than spending thousands and thousands of shillings (even if it’s your parents’) on an education only to find no one willing to give you a job and a chance. At a time in your life when the bills start pouring in, your home is in limbo, your relationships and friendships are askew, and your excitement to get your life “started” is at its peak, there really is nothing more crushing. It takes patience, faith, and hard work to press on, maintain your confidence, and relax.

As a graduate who has gone through it all, I can relate to the suffocating, depressing, never-ending job searches that make you question every choice you’ve ever made – especially choosing to go to college in the first place. I know what it’s like to have bills outnumbering and outweighing your meager income. To have to accept an unrelated job where you are treated like shit and you’re not so schooled co-workers are paid the same as you. Or to work in an environment where everyone is miserable and work sucks out your will to go on.

Elements that your CV should never miss.

Have you ever looked at two companies offering the same product always come up with new marketing strategies, advertisements and promotions all with the aim of getting new clients and getting more market share. Well your CV, just like a product needs to compete with the thousands of other people sending in their documents. The job market is tough and it's getting tougher. Your CV is your No. 1 marketing tool and it may not be doing its job and that is getting you an interview.

One reason may be a lack of time. With the increased competition for jobs and more applicants, employers don't spend a lot of time reading any one CV. I must admit, a CV gets about 20 to 30 seconds of time for someone to read through and as I explain to most people. If a CV doesn’t appeal, then am definitely not going further. Right? If I have to scramble to get information, then am not going to bother. That's not much time to score.
