Job Search Tip
As well as making sure the Irish recruitment agencies know about you, and have the fresh copy of your CV, there is also a number of the Irish Employers who do not use the recruitment agencies but hire directly. The majority of the employers in Ireland use the combination of all sources of applications for their positions. The internal referral is the method the most employers prefer, then the direct applications, and at then the recruitment agencies.
Therefore by targeting just recruitment agencies you are limiting yourself to only those recruiters who do utilise their services. Check your industry and see if the employers in your industry actually use recruitment agencies at all, or are they recruiting directly. If they are hiring themselves, sending your CV to the recruitment agencies will not get you a job you want. What you will need to do is to apply directly to those employers. Sending them your CV in the email format is the most convenient and effective for both you as a job hunter and for the employer.
