It may surprise you to know that most job openings never make it to the want ad section. Luckily, there are other sources you can turn to for leads. One of those is through an employment agency. These agencies may be known by many different names, including personnel agencies, personnel recruiters, executive search firms, and placement services. But basically, they all perform the same function: locating job openings at companies, and seeking candidates to interview for those positions. Some handle both temporary jobs and permanent positions. Getting registered with a placement firm is much like a regular job interview: you'll need to fill out forms, present a resume, and impress them with your qualifications. If possible, try to find an agency that specializes in your field. Beyond that, make sure the agency is reputable and experienced. Look for a stable company, without high employee turnover of their own. They should treat you with courtesy and respect, but watch out for anyone who is complimentary to the extreme, or guarantees to find you a job. Finally, look carefully before signing any agreement regarding fees; make sure you understand who pays for your placement.
