How A Recruitment Agency can help students

thteh

A big concern for many university students is how you are going to put all your hard work to good use and get your foot on the career ladder. What many of you won’t realise is just how much a recruitment agency could help in that process, both during your time at university and after graduation.

How can registering with a recruitment agency help me while I’m at university?

The long university holidays are a perfect time to get some work experience and temporary work is a great way for you to gain transferable skills, boost your CV and earn some extra money. Using an agency to get temporary work while you’re studying removes a lot of the stress, because you’ll be allocated a Recruitment Consultant who will know your availability and what it is you’re looking for. They’ll let you know of opportunities that fit your skills, which will save you a lot of time.

Temping can give you a good idea of what kind of role you want to do long term, as you can see which aspects of each role you did and didn’t enjoy and get a realistic idea of what will work for you career-wise. Evidence of work experience on your CV will prove to employers that you’re willing to work hard, make you stand out from other candidates, and give you the essential skills that graduate jobs require. A lot of graduate roles will be office-based and so registering with an agency like (https://www.lawrencedeanrecruitment.co.uk/) Lawrence Dean Recruitment, which specialises in these sectors, will give you relevant experience.

How can an agency help me after graduation?

 Graduate schemes are extremely competitive, and if you aren’t accepted into your chosen scheme straight away, talking about your options will help you to figure out what to do next. If you have your heart set on a specific scheme, temporary work could be a great way to gain experience in the sector you want to work in. At Lawrence Dean Recruitment we also have a wide range of permanent roles available and in these you may find the perfect role that you hadn’t even considered before!

Why is a recruitment agency better than applying for jobs on my own?

 You will have your own Recruitment Consultant, who will give you a realistic idea of what kind of work you can apply for, based on your skills and experience.  They will also advise you if they think that you have unrealistic expectations. This will not only save you a lot of time applying for jobs that you have no chance of getting but will also mean that you’re more likely to be successful in your applications. At Lawrence Dean Recruitment we like to give candidates feedback even when they’re unsuccessful, so that they know for next time what they can work on and improve to give a higher chance of success in the future!

 Your Lawrence Dean Recruitment Consultant will be able to offer you tailored CV advice based on your career expectations and they will know exactly what employers are looking for and what the role entails. You will get support throughout the whole process, as well as having access to a wide range of jobs and advice on which positions will suit you. This removes a lot of pressure from your job search and means that a lot of the hard work is done for you.
