Job Agencies

I've just had an email through from a job agency telling me they can find the 'one job meant for you'. They then say here are your personalised job matches:

Dealt with a few agencies. All of them and their recruitment consultants were shite. All they do is trawl the Internet, which you can do yourself. My experience has led me to believe that they are interested in their percentage and that is all they are interested in. Some will Bragg they have 'good working relationships' with possible big employers but it's 100% bullshit. A recruitment agency finding you a great jod is the exception rather than the norm.
Late Doors

Relatively recent arrival on the employment market aren't they?, or at least the prolificacy and scope are. Time was that only actors and top level sports stars had them. Top executives and high level professionals then got absorbed  but now they have seeped into mainstream employment circles for everybody. They have become industry's sub contract HR department. At the deepest end we have minimum wage labour wholesaler agencies. So called Professional agencies marketing themselves as some kind of elite appealing to the aspirational and specialist agencies catering for particular trades or sectors.

Proper industries HR Departments have shrunk down to a couple of high earners dealing with these agencies and corporate management leaving the actual work to a lacky or two. HR have become mere farmers as humans become mere resources. Always makes me smile when HR go to a recruitment agency to find them a HR Person as well. Wonder if Recruitment agencies sub contract another agency to find an employee for them? wouldn't surprise me.  

Its another growth fake industry, jeez the lengths we go to find any kind of work rather than proper work in order to make the economy go round. The tragedy is that all these pretend jobs do not add value to the nation they merely shuffle spending money around and in my experience offer nothing to  the companies they supply employees to that the company couldn't do better themselves.
