For most youngsters landing in the search for a job, the right one might be the one with the highest income but one must also consider other factors like stability of the company, company’s potential for growth, ability for moving up the hierarchy (if there’s one), additional facilities among others.
While most companies directly advertise their vacancies on newspapers or on the internet, others outsource this task of attracting, screening and selecting the appropriate candidates to recruitment agencies. Reasons for this choice might be to take advantage of their long experience in the field or even, access to the large database of curriculum vitae. There are many other reasons why recruitment agencies might be more appropriate for this process.
And recruitment agencies can also work the other way round where someone proposes his CV to the agency, who will try to match the skills of the person to the range of jobs currently advertised/handled by the agency itself.
A few days ago, my first virtual friend asked me to write something to know what and how do Mauritians feel about recruitment agencies in Mauritius.
Will you prefer to apply for a job directly advertised from a company or through a job recruitment agency? Why?
For those who have gone through this process with those agencies, how was the experience and what can be improved in the system. It might be even more interesting to share your experience with international recruitment agency, if any?
All suggestions about the Mauritian job market will be welcomed.
Thanks for helping out
