When you’re looking to break into a particular industry, you may find that you’re continuously being contacted by recruitment agencies. It may sound great at first, like you’re being headhunted, but be warned they only have their own interests at heart.
Recruitment agencies are under pressure to fill job positions and it’s in their interest to speak to as many relevant people as possible. They can often sound as though they’re your friends; looking out for you and helping you get that dream job.
However, when a position has been filled you, may not hear from them again, and you should never pin your hopes up on getting a job through a recruitment agency. Some of course will help you and do what they can to get you a job, but make sure you don’t rely upon a particular agency, unless of course you’re paying for their services.
