GETTING INTERVIEWS IS ALL ABOUT HAVING CONTACTS AND A PLACEMENT FIRM CAN BE YOUR CONTACT AT POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS WHERE YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE ONE. THEY ESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEIR CLIENT COMPANIES. THEY GET TO KNOW YOU, YOUR SEARCH CRITERIA, AND YOUR MOTIVATORS. THEY HELP YOU GET YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR.
