Why Use a Private Employment Agency? No HR department: firm lacks recruiting and screening capabilities to attract a pool of qualified applicants. To fill a particular opening quickly. To attract more minority or female applicants. To reach currently employed individuals who are more comfortable dealing with agencies than competing companies. To reduce internal time devoted to recruiting.

Avoiding Problems with Employment Agencies Give agency an accurate and complete job description. Make sure tests, application blanks, and interviews are part of the agency s selection process. Review candidates accepted or rejected by your firm or the agency for effectiveness and fairness of agency s screening process. Screen agency for effectiveness in filling positions. Supplement the agency s reference checking by checking the final candidate s references yourself.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
