Job placements consultant enables the candidate to work according to the goals of the company. Job placements or manpower search helps in matching the expectations of what the candidate visualizes, verses what is the actual real life work conditions.

Once a candidate fine-tunes his expectations from the job and continuous to deliver ‘vis-à-vis’ what was expected out of him by the company, one can safely conclude that the job placements was matching. However, if the candidate has issues in blending himself/herself to the occupation and he/she continues to perform below potentials expected from him/her, one can conclude that the candidate was surely misplaced and discussed with the Recruitment agency.

Whether an employee works independently or as a team member it totally depends on the type of jobs role assigned. In recruitment industry Jobs are generally broken in to three different categories-(1) Individualistic, (2) accumulated and (3) liberal. In certain cases, jobs are independent, for example, postal service or field sales. In Progressive jobs, activities of one employee are dependent on the activities of a fellow employee. Where jobs are assembled in nature, there is high interdependence among events. The final output is the result of contribution of all the employees. Project teams and assembly teams represent assembled jobs. Independent jobs do not pose great difficulties in placements, for each employee needs only to be appraised relative to the match between his or her competences and interests, and those required on the job.
