Singapore presents a unique job market in Southeast Asia, to both native residents and foreign workers. The island nation-city of Singapore has no natural resources of its own other than the native residents who call Singapore home. This makes the job market in Singapore fairly competitive, among native residents and foreign workers alike. The job placement, recruiting, and human resources consultancy business has come to serve the interests of organizations and individuals alike, with the goal of seeking qualified candidates for employers and presenting the same to those employers who are looking to fill open employment positions.
The Role of Recruitment Agencies
Connecting local and foreign job seekers with Singapore’s various employers has become an important role in recruitment agencies in the city of Singapore. While Singapore presents a thriving job market that welcomes foreign workers, those workers still must compete with the native workforce for the best jobs, and they must stand out from the native candidates in order to gain the most rewarding employment positions. The services of a recruitment agency can be a tremendous benefit to those who wish to take measures to market themselves and their skills to prospective employers, and such services are also a benefit to employers who wish to find and retain the best talent. In order to accomplish these goals, the process requires employers to work with recruitment agencies to assess their needs and the most desirable talents and attributes required to adequately fill open positions.
Where to Look for a Recruitment Agency
Aon Singapore is a recruitment and employment placing agency that accomplishes the placement of suitable candidates with organizations that stand to benefit from a given candidate by gaining an understanding of the organization’s needs and compiling a list of suitable candidates from a pool of resumes that job seekers have provided. The recruitment agency then evaluates the candidate’s’ skills and attributes in the context of the employer’s needs in order to compile a shortlist of viable candidates. Upon the employer’s selection of those candidates which are most desirable, the recruitment agency works with both the hiring organization and the candidates to arrange interviews. Because the majority of the job placement process is accomplished remotely rather than in person, it is imperative that candidates present a professional CV or resume, and relevant covering letter.
Advantages for Employers and Candidates
The advantages of engaging a recruitment agency to find and evaluate candidates, and to present prospective candidates to employers include giving employers the opportunity to spend valuable time on defining roles and desired attributes without having to sort through a multitude of applications to find the best candidates. Prospective job seekers can benefit from the recruitment agency’s assistance with marketing their skills and preparing candidates for interviews. Recruitment agencies offer advice based on an intimate knowledge of the target employers, including the history and culture of the organization and what the organization is looking for in a prospective employee.
Some agencies have exclusive access to jobs that would not otherwise be found through an ordinary search. Connecting with these recruiters will give you an edge over other candidates.
