New to Arrse - long time reader first time poster etc. Been out since last year and found the market a tad... difficult to say the least. Various resettlement agencies were not particularly useful, in that they weren't that aware of industries etc and arenas for potentially moving into. It all boiled down to "why not try The City or a management job"? So, why the post? I've used a few recruiters out there with a great many a bit confused by an Army CV (LOTS of misconceptions. Leadership and Army not being in the same sentence for example [...countdown for incoming Rupert comments] and assuming all we do is "dig holes and shoot [civvies]" - I wish that was not an actual quote, but sadly... Anyway, the Forces recruiters seem focused in various areas. The one I've had most dealings with is Force Select and I wondered if anyone else had used them or had any experience with other agencies or Force Select themselves and what feedback you might have. I've whacked this comment into the sticky post at top o' page, but wanted to see what everyone else's recent experience was like (Sticky posts don't get read that often I've found). Currently I am between jobs and want to see what options are out there. Dabbled in Finance recruiting since leaving and it's a tough industry and certainly tricky for ex-forces (Finance AND recruiting!) Any thoughts?
