Why is it important to be forthcoming with a talent agency?

Communicating with Your Career Agency

If you've teamed up with a career agency, it doesn't matter if it's in a small town or if it's one of the biggest talent agencies San Francisco has to offer, communication will be important. These organizations try to match companies with talent and they aim to make sure everyone is happy with the arrangement. Because of this, it's crucial that you're forthcoming when you talk about the expectations you have for a position.

If you're hoping to work part-time from home, be sure and tell the representative that you prefer off-site work. If you're trying to find a permanent position, you'll want to make that clear as well. The more your talent rep knows about you, the better they can match you up with potential clients.

It can backfire if you try to be too flexible when you're really looking for something in particular. If an agency finds a slot for you and it doesn't work out, it creates a difficult situation for all involved. Luckily, this is much less likely to happen if you're honest about what you're looking for in the first place.
