Recruitment Agencies are now demanding that you "register" and fill in their extensive form before they will pass on your CV for vacancies they have advertised on job boards.

Among information they are after is:
1) Which companies have you applied for in the last six months?
2) Which companies have interviewed you in the last three months?
3) What are your committed holiday dates?  (Probably so they get get their brother in law to break into your home while you are away!
4) What were the reasons for leaving (last six employers)
5) What was the salary on leaving (last six employers)
6) What other agencies are you registered with?
7) What is your religion, date of birth, marital status etc?

You waste two hours filling all this in and then never hear from them again.

That stuff (annoying as it is) is just standard agency procedure.

No it isnt!  There have been only two that have asked and insisted on it out of 100's that have my CV.

But it could be the start of a new trend.
Hopefully people will rely on one or two and they iin turn will finally give a service to those looking for work.

AS IF!!!

They used to be useful if you wanted someone for a specific task or a few hours work.
