Recruitment Agencies are firms that work for both employees and employers. Such firms work differently for different parties and act as a mediator to provide necessary professional support. These agencies source talent and look for the person who fits the assigned role.
They have a team of highly trained professionals where each recruiter is assigned a different task for recruitment.
For example, some recruiters will find new job openings, while others will be in constant communication with employers; some of them become part of the hiring process or take feedbacks.
