The summer months are the time of year when the employment offices, employment agencies and web portals literally overflowing with interested job seekers. The current candidates has just at this time added a number of high school and college graduates who have, in addition to the brigade are opting for permanent load. They can help find the aforementioned staffing agency.

If you are the ones who had the good fortune to find a job while you study, you begin to speak „from scratch“. Messing with the Ad Council, to ask in your area, bypassing the company and your field of interest, send CVs. Sometimes just a few days searching and never sign a contract, but other times it may take a little longer. And while it may be a mere lack of preparation.

Excessive self-confidence and lack of professionalism

The most a breach of the candidates in their efforts to find a job are suffering, is that sometimes ** unable to estimate his skill and ability **. Some may suffer from excessive sebepodceňováním, others again some believe more than is healthy. Other pitfalls also often lack ** ** information about where to look for work anywhere. Although most applicants have a certain range of locations that are in search of work still turn around, but often does not know that options can be much more.

Further advice may fall on a presentation for potential employers – for example in manners, dress code etc, or on what questions to prepare and how to correct their wage demands, upwards or downwards, "* calculates the general content of consultations with clients Peldová Erik from Prague affiliates Start People, which currently has about 13 000 job seekers.

Plenty of information on both sides

As service firms using recruitment agencies receive detailed information on ** all ** candidates, the candidates receive from the Agency ** data on individual employers **. Not only that, the agency often advise candidates on what to prepare everything before it to a specific employer set out for an interview. All this can be an advantage over job search "on your own, because the candidates themselves often have limited opportunities to seek more detailed information about the company where they would like to work. Let alone how it is in the interview. Recruitment agency and plays only an intermediary, but an advisory role.

Carefully select === === Because of this, you decide to use the services of the agency, you will be asked to disclose many details about you, read first balance sheet, with which agency you want to cooperate.

What kind of interest in the fields
