Finding your dream job can be difficult. You can spend lots of time and energy trawling through vacancy listings in papers and online yet still fail to find that dream job. If you find yourself stuck in this kind of rut, then it might be time to seek help from one of the many marketing recruitment agencies in the West Midlands. What you might find is that the ideal job is there, and you may even have read the job description, but you won’t know it because you don’t know what a good fit you might be with the organisation. Fitting in with a company can count a lot towards your job satisfaction and potential for further career opportunities. Sometimes you just need to get in to get on. How do you go about choosing which agency to sign up with or is it worth registering with a few marketing recruitment agencies in the West Midlands? It is worth visiting a few agencies to see what reception you get and how interested you think they are in getting to know you. It is also worth looking at what companies each agency works with if there is an employer you are keen to work for. Register with the ones you feel are committed to helping you find your fit and who are not just going to push you forward for opportunities to make up the candidate numbers. It is important that the agency you choose spends time getting to know you in order to be able to match you to your ideal job. Agencies should have good knowledge of various companies’ cultures and working practices and be able to advise on where your personality type, work ethic and skills might be best suited. Agencies who work closely with employers will also be aware of the internal development programmes available. Before you start meeting agencies, it is a good idea to think back through your employment history and make a list of all the elements of different jobs that you liked and all those bits that you didn’t. You may be surprised to find that many of the likes and dislikes are not related to the job details itself but possibly are more related to the company culture, internal processes, standards and expectations and the development support to enable you to meet expectations. These are not things you’ll find in vacancy listings and wouldn’t find out until you start in a job. You can get a little more insight by working with recruitment agencies that are tasked to find the right fit.
