To find a job, it is important to use all available resources and tools, of which there are a lot in the modern world, and all of them can be useful even in a foreign country. To begin with, you need to decide which type of employment is really needed: temporary part-time work, remote work, unskilled labor or a position of a specialist with permanent employment – depending on the goal, you can use different job search tools.
Of course, it is best to leave a resume with those organizations that the employer pays for the selection of good personnel. But there are a huge number of recruiting companies, whose services are paid by the client-applicant. When contacting such agencies, it is worth choosing those in which payment for services occurs only upon receipt of work with their help. In addition, the recruiting agency must be licensed to provide employment services.
Before concluding an agreement with an agency, you should definitely find out all the conditions in advance: what services the agency is ready to provide, for what fee and in what time frame, as well as a refund if the agency does not fulfill its obligations. All this information must necessarily be spelled out in the contract.
If the company turns out to be dishonest and the fact of fraud is obvious in its work, you can contact the State Consumer Protection Office.
