So, I didn't get the job I was on about lately. Apparently it came down to me and another bloke, out of 16 applications, and after careful consideration and whatnot he chose the other bloke, naturally. I'm not here to dwell on that, I'm here to moan and maybe learn something new about recruitment agencies.
I've applied for around two dozen jobs over the past two months in web development, all of which I'm capable/qualified to do. All but one have been posted by recruitment agencies, and funnily enough, it was the one and only one posted by the actual company that gave me an interview and short-listed me. So this leads me to believe, am I somehow doing something wrong when applying for jobs posted by agencies?
Here's one of my searches: http://www.reed.co.u...tby=DisplayDate - I've narrowed it down to "front end" jobs just so you don't have to scan through loads. Like I said, I've applied for loads of jobs exactly like these, posted by agencies, and heard nothing; I apply for one job posted by the company themselves and almost get the job after an interview. Coincidence?
I'd like to contact the companies advertising directly, but no details are given. This is also the case with Monster, TotalJobs etc. Any tips?
Oh, just to coincide with the topic theme, grrrrr, mumble grumble, humbug, stupid agencies, stupid employers, grrr.
