Why Applying Through an Agency Increases Your Chances of Finding Work

Landing that ideal job can be challenging.

To begin with, finding a suitable job in a competitive market is difficult enough. Then you have to write a good resume and cover letter. Then, if you’re lucky, you land an interview and have to impress your interview panel, go through reference and police checks, maybe a follow-up interview… all before you even land the job!

It’s a big ask.

The good news is: you don’t have to do it alone.

Registering through a good recruitment agency means you’re guided through the entire process of finding and securing a job. We support you through the entire process so that you don’t have to face the challenge alone.

Here’s what a good recruitment agency can offer you:

  • Resume Screening
    We’ll look over your resume before you apply to make sure you get your best resume out there and increase your employment chances.
  • Professional advice
    Industry experts help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and how best to present your application.
  • Extensive networks
    We know the industry. If you don’t land the job you applied for, we’ll have a pool of others to choose from and many more coming in regularly. We can also put in a good word to employers on your behalf.
  • Training Opportunities
    Regular discounted and free training opportunities for members through DNA Training.
  • Casual Opportunities
    Begin earning money straight away while waiting for an application to be processed, or while studying.
  • Clarity and Protection
    We know the industry standards, policies and regulations in place to support you in your workplace.
  • Career Prospects
    Members get first choice at the many career opportunities that come our way across different industries.

When considering whether it’s better to apply for a job directly through a company or through a recruitment agency, it’s important to keep in mind the advice from DNA Recruitment specialist, Veronica Carnevale: “Going into a job application alone might land you a job at some point, but it won’t give you the confidence and support that comes with joining a team of professionals with decades of experience. Why take your chances alone when you can join a strong team? It’s a no-brainer really.”
