If you are looking for work in the digital marketing industry, it is likely that you have considered using a recruitment company. After all, there are more job vacancies than ever before, so it can be very difficult to find the roles that are suited to your skills. But is it beneficial to use more than one recruitment company?

The answer seems to be no. Here are four reasons to use one recruitment company, rather than several.


1. Reasons To Use One Recruitment Company: You Can Find The Right Niche

Choosing only one recruitment company gives you time to research each company thoroughly (rather than spending your time signing up to every agency that you find). This means that you are more likely to find a recruitment company that actually suits your niche. For instance, you may find a company that specialises in social media digital marketing, rather than content marketing. This will make it easier for you to be matched with roles that suit your skillset, instead of more generic roles that appeal less to you.


2. You Can Focus On Quality, Rather Than Quantity

Another advantage to choosing only one recruitment agency is that you can focus on quality, rather than quantity. There are lots of recruitment companies out there, but they are not all made equally; some work with multiple companies who are hiring in lots of areas, while others have fewer clients and therefore fewer roles. Looking for just one company means you are more likely to find a high-quality recruitment company with in-depth knowledge.


3. You Will Look More Professional

You may be tempted to work with lots of different recruitment agencies in an attempt to find work quicker, but this can backfire. For instance, multiple recruitment companies could put you forward for different roles within the same company, which could make you seem unsure about your skillset. For this reason we suggest finding one company and being transparent with them about your skillset.


4. It Will Remove Some Pressure

Finally working with just one recruitment agency will reduce the pressure of your job search. After all, if you work with multiple agencies you may end up with multiple interviews on the same day! This can cause serious issues; for instance, you may confuse one company with another and seem unprofessional. You also may not have enough time to prepare for lots of different interviews. So choose one recruitment company that suits your needs and your skills, and put 100% of your effort into each interview that comes your way.
