I was having a hard time find a job and I was talking to a friend of mine about it. She suggested I try a local placement agent to help me find a job. I had never tried one of these places before but I thought I would give it a try.
I called them to find out what I would need to do. They told me I would need to come in and bring my resume with me. They said I would be there about an hour to get set up and do skills testing.
I went in, took the testing and got all the paperwork filled out. They told me which jobs were available based on my resume and skill testing I did. They told me what they paid and what kind of job it was. I told them which one I was interested in and they applied for the job for me.
The next day they called me to say they wanted to set up an interview with me. The placement agent told me how that would work and how they would be with me for the interview and help me with it.
I was really nervous to have the interview, but knowing the placement agent would be with me made it easier. The interview was fine and the placement agent called me later to let me know the company offered me the job. I accepted it and now I am working for them through the agency.
Using a placement agent to help me find a job was something I never considered before, but I’m glad my friend told me about this option. I was able to find a job within days using this agency. It was easy to do and I would recommend it to anyone searching for a job.
