Employers may find a very hard time to filter through applications and scheduling for interviews in order to make a perfect selection of candidates to fill new vacancies.

They are best in doing this job as compared to the individual human resources departments as they have more experience and good daily contact with the market needs of employment needs. This is because they deal with different organizations daily and numerous candidates.

These agencies place millions of people to work everyday and help organizations to hire workers. Most job seekers ignore employment agencies but research has shown that a good percentage of the people with jobs to day must have involved an employment agency in one way or another.
