Greetings to everyone in our #JobAdviceSA Community!
Last week, in anticipation of this week’s chat, I started reaching out to South African Recruitment Agencies to invite them to STAR, or feature, in our weekly #JobAdviceChat. I must have asked close to 20 agencies. I knew I was taking a risk as we only had 4, maybe 5, slots available for the chat.
I was very underwhelmed by the response that we received! I could ‘name and shame’ the agencies that never got back to me but that would give them the ‘air time or visibility’ that they do not deserve.
Thank you to the agencies that got back to me, namely:
- @Cassel_Co – www.cassel.co.za
- @PC_Staffing – www.pcstaffing.co.za
- @SciStaff_SA – www.scistaff.co.za
- I didn’t hear back from any other agencies so I pose this question for Question 4:
What is your greatest frustration when dealing with Recruitment Agencies? How can they improve their service to YOU?
I think a big contributor to this situation is that there are a lot of ‘unmonitored’ Twitter accounts that Agencies open and never check again. This puts your brand in more of a negative light than by not having a social media presence at all. I don’t think that agencies realise the damage that this can do to their brand.
Hopefully next time we try and connect South African Recruitment Agencies with qualified candidates we will get a better response as this response was dismal.
