Is there a benefit of applying to a school directly than going through a recruiter?
Yes. It takes out the middle man. If a recruiter tells you or promises you something, it is only useful if the school also agrees with the same. It is difficult to determine whether the school is in agreement with the promises of the recruiter. The best way is getting on without a recruiter which is easy. One of the best ways is being recommended by a friend; you can get a better position. There are many job sites where you can post and receive many job opportunities.
A recruiter is a just a middle man. You can have a better control of job, if you directly visit the school or education offices. Once you go there you will receive a list of schools available and you can choose which ever you want. While the recruiting process is very confusing, but it’s a gamble either way.
You can visit GEPIK’s website and get a job without a recruiter. You can email GEPIK and they will request to see your documents; then you just need to pick a city and sign a contract, that’s it!
