    Pros

    So helpful. They would call helping me get whatever job they thought was right for me. They helped give me some interview questions they would think the employer would ask. I didn't accept an offer they helped me get, but they've been so helpful finding other opportunities for me.

    Cons

    Really push you to take the job offer, even if you aren't sure you want to.
