And also a good way...
of getting candidates and advertisers to contact YOUR recruitment firm as you are getting such great results...
I hope it's all true by the way. Would be good news for us all.
Recruitment agency CV Screen is seeing a big improvement in job prospects for IT staff. It reckons there's been a 25 per cent increase in demand in a month for staff and a 27 per cent drop in the number of applicants for each post. CV Screen interprets this as evidence that IT professionals are getting new jobs more quickly. …
Or maybe they just need free advertising to pull some more CVs to the site. It's not like it never happened with similar sites.
It's a common practice to send 50 not matching CVs to employers. Just so it looks like there's a big demand. Also often contracts say that agency needs to send specific number of CVs. I've seen it over and over again, although I stopped looking for a job a while ago. Agents calling and asking for skills that are not even mentioned on CV. Then when asked about it, saying "Don't worry mate, it will be fine, we know what they want!". BS. Truth is that less people are actually looking to change the jobs (nobody wants to risk) so CV pool shrunk quite considerably. There are mostly same people all over the place as their skills don't guarantee employment.
Didn't the internet replace the need for these middlemen? They are about as much use as estate agents and equally skilled as bullshit artists.
I prefer to deal direct with companies that want to hire me. That way the company also gets to keep the finders fee which they are normally more than happy to remember when it comes to haggling salaries. Only HR departments full of lazy fat slags use recruitment agencies anyway.
Wow aren't you the lucky one, you only have to deal direct to find that great job. Some of us were tettering on the edge of redundancy and the jobs market is not so comfortable.
My girlfriend works in recruitment and acutally they find the agency model works pretty well (she is not fat and neither is she a slag but thanks for the generalisation). They get to recruit with their name and somebody else does all the paperwork, and legal mumbo jumbo.
And anyway when I got my current role I got this one offered and another through an agency so both ways work, so lets not say that whatever you say is right eh?
With over ten years in the business I've not been able to find anything permanent since redundancy in December last year. Fortunately, I do have a temporary (casual) position at the moment. There's usually one or two possible jobs that pop up online every day, but from talking to the recruitment people it seems they're deluged with applications and unless you phone and hassle them your application ends up in the recycling bin with no response.
agents and agencies required is also on the rise, it is the top job to be in the UK.
Tends to be in the field of health care, dentistry, estate agents, road sweepers, forestry, teaching, traditional entertainment, finance and manufacturing.
Haven't seen anything happen on the IT scene apart from a nose dive right down though.
Well, my friend Andy... yes companies are recruiting in India. Fire IT persons with higher salary... Recruit persons with lower salary.
I am one of the Victim. I am highly skilled. I have been asked to train a cheap resource so that he can maintain BAU (Business As Usual). He is supposed to be my back up. But I know, in 1 month I am going to have a meeting with my manager and he is going to declare me my job loss.
The reason - Recession.....
Its same everywhere.... Business men does not recognize nation and border .... they only recognize MONEY.
