Job Seeker FAQ’s
Let us address any questions that you might have about how we work with our candidates.
What fees do I pay for you to represent me?
Our clients (the employers) hire us to conduct searches for their roles on their behalf. This means, they pay us a fee, not you. So – it costs you nothing.
What is involved with signing up as a candidate with Boost Agents?
