Conducting interviews can be stressful considering the number of people you have to screen, shortlist and, eventually, interview. Carrying out these processes by yourself take time and money – recruitment agencies conduct them for a lot less. Recruitment agencies usually have effective methods on how they screen applicants for job roles. Sometimes, they can go as far as carrying out brief phone interviews to further narrow down numbers of applicants before they eventually carry out the proper interview. Also, a recruitment consultant often knows the right questions to ask and the signs to watch out for during interviews, better than you do.
