Do not think that, only job seekers have the usefulness of these placement consultancies; nevertheless, the companies who hire these services are too benefited by them in many ways. Among which, most imperative of all is reduction of the work load from the companies. Let me explain you this by an example.
For example, there is a company, who has opening in it for multiple profiles and looking for multitudes of suitable candidates. Then, what will they do. Either, they will perform on- campus and off- campus recruitment at various locations around the country or they will hire someone to do this work for them. Well, in first case, the company will have to take lots of efforts in maintaining the records of the candidates who are taking the hiring process and need to engage its many professional for this work, thus resulting in consumption of lots of time. But, if we go in second case, then all they need to do is hire a professional and seasoned recruitment agency to help them in hiring appropriate candidates and they just have to wait for the results.
Moreover, in first process, company will not only engage its valuable time and employee; but also have to spend lumps of money in travelling across the various locations and managing other tasks. However, if they hire someone for it, then they do not need to spend that much amount and satisfactory work can be done in minimal cost.
Also, they need not to worry about the qualification, salary expectation and background of the candidate as everything will be performed by the recruitment agency itself.
So, now you can easily understand that, why such firms are beneficial for companies too as they help them in completing such complicated task successfully.
