We’ve all seen those job adverts, you know the ones, where it seems too good to be true, so we send a rather hesitant application. Or, we avoid it altogether, thinking, there’s no way they’d be interested in me, there must be thousands of applications.
So, at a time like this, where skepticism is at an all time high, and, with prices rising all around us, taking that leap of faith is riskier than ever.
So you see an advert for a design agency, with an impressive list of directors and a vision that looks better than your wildest fantasies, you take the plunge, and suddenly you find yourself offered an interview at Madbird.
That’s exactly what the recent Netflix scandal documentary is detailing, as 52 people were taken in by the promises of a global agency, ran from Kensington, and they jumped ship, chasing a dream they previously thought out of reach.
Only to find, that after working on a commission only basis, the money wasn’t coming in, in fact, the company didn’t even exist.
Wrapped up in debt, facing a brutal economy these talented jobseekers have found themselves in a brutal vacuum of despair.
This is exactly why, using the proper avenues protects you from the worst, now, it’s not like we are saying these fake companies are a common thing, but it does make you think, what if there was a 3rd party who’s sole responsibility was to ensure that not only were the right candidates applying, but that the companies were the real McCoy.
That’s where recruitment companies absolutely provide the service needed to navigate this jungle, because they do the due diligence to ensure that only real employment opportunities from proven employers are offered, and conversely only candidates who have been thoroughly prescreened can arrive at the interview stages.
So when you start your next career search, seek out the specialists who are there to help you.
