1st resource not last resort
“Have you got an vacancies?” Don’t you just hate it when recruitment agencies call and ask that question? Moreover, it’s an invitation for the agency to fall flat on their face, because if you have – they may not have the particular expertise to fill it.
So why do we do it? Well it’s a poor excuse for engaging with Employers. We all know when we get on the dreaded phone (we all have to do it at some point) that you need a reason for calling.
