Looking for a recruitment agency in Chicago, USA that suits your requirements is not always simple. Using search engines to find agencies can often mean a series of false starts, wasting time and resources. AgencyComparison’s free and intelligent comparison tool has been developed to counter this issue, matching your business with the recruitment agency in Chicago, USA that suits it best. To go through our step-by-step guide below, begin by registering with AgencyComparison for free.
What are the Benefits of Comparing Agencies?
Comparison tools have long existed for a variety of services providing a host of benefits for supplier and client alike. At AgencyComparison, we realised that the wants of a client and the capabilities of an agency do not always match one another, with one or both parties often becoming unsatisfied over time without growth.
It is because of this that we developed our smart comparison platform. Unlike comparison tools for energy or insurance providers that look solely for the cheapest deal available, our comparison tool works to match clients and agencies that are best suited to one another. This is achieved by a variety of factors:
- Our use of AI, machine learning and data science.
- A thorough maintenance of accounts on our platform.
- Our years of experience working with agencies from a range of sectors.
- The intuitively simple design of our platform allowing buyers to search effectively.
Through our competitive and fair platform, you may unearth an exciting recruitment agency in Chicago, USA that is not as visible when searching with typical agency sourcing methods. Here are a range of areas that are benefited when using agency comparison:
Will There Be More Agencies Available to Me?
Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of our comparison tool is the range of agencies it makes available to you. By simply having a variety of agencies to choose from, the likelihood of finding one that best meets your needs increases significantly.
With more established agencies often having the most noticeable presence online, it is easy to assume that they will have the biggest impact on a project. This, however, is not always the case. Every client has different needs and expectations. So, while the most well-known recruitment agency in Chicago, USA may have a proven history of as an effective supplier for a considerable amount of people, that may not be the case for your business. With a wide range of agencies to choose from on AgencyComparison.com, your business can effectively compare and contrast them with your business’s unique demands in mind. Whether this is an agency’s history, or its unique selling points, using our comparison tool provides a more balanced overview of your options. By placing a range of agencies side-by-side, those that don’t fit with your project can be quickly ruled out in favour of those better suited. By having agencies pitch to you how they work with your project, time can be saved that might otherwise have been wasted researching them yourself or talking with each of them.
How does AgencyComparison Guarantee Effective Matching?
Another benefit that results from using AgencyComparison’s unique tool is that you have a significant amount of control over your relationship with your selected recruitment agency in Chicago, USA. From the tailored selection process that allows you to choose the agencies that you believe will have the best effect on your project, to relationship maintenance, we guarantee that clients will be satisfied with their supplier.
Once you have chosen an agency for your project, both you and your supplier will receive a mutual NDA template. This ensures that your relationship is protected from the beginning. By guaranteeing that both parties are comfortable sharing their thoughts and unique approaches with one another, the relationship can get off to as strong as start as is possible. Once completed, we strongly recommend that the NDA is uploaded to our platform for each party’s peace of mind.
If, for whatever reason, you are unsatisfied with the progress an agency has made on your project, this is not an issue either. Should this occur, we promise to mediate the relationship or, if required, find a replacement supplier. By having us mediate or switch over the contract, you do not need to worry about it being a drawn out process.
Will I have More Control by Comparing Agencies?
When searching for a recruitment agency in Chicago, USA through more typical routes, such as search engines or word of mouth, it is common to commit to an agency without their approach to your project being properly demonstrated. When using AgencyComparison.com, you have considerably more insight into how each agency will approach your project and, resultantly, more control over the direction of the relationship.
By being able to analyse the individual approaches of agencies side-by-side before signing a contract with any, you can be more confident in your choice from the beginning. Similarly, an agency’s work history and feedback is user-defined. So, unlike the hand-picked testimonials that will often be found on an agency’s website, all ratings are sourced from other projects they have taken on within AgencyComparison.com.
With the complex terminology and marketing jargon that it is easy to encounter when researching a recruitment agency in Chicago, USA, it can be a challenge to determine which is best suited to your project. When using AgencyComparison, your project comes first. By clearly outlining your project, you can quickly receive project-specific pitches from your favourite shortlisted agencies. This makes the selection process significantly easier. When an agency pitch makes clear how it will address the individual stages of your project, their merits are much more clear.
Project-specificity in the selection process also gives agencies that may be effective but less easily discovered a chance to pitch for your project. It may be, for example, that your project will will grow much more quickly from the specialist approach of a smaller recruitment agency in Chicago, USA. This is especially true if your business works within an industry niche. Or, conversely, it may be better handled by the more straightforward full service approach of a larger agency. In any case, when pitches are analysed next to each other, it is easier to understand their individual merits for your project.
Can I Manage More than One Agency?
With the tracking capabilities of AgencyComparison.com, it is also possible to manage all your projects in one place. This means that progress can be effectively tracked and compared across ongoing projects, highlighting their individual strengths and weaknesses. Simply visit the ‘Projects’ area of your account and analyse the progress reports of your projects side-by-side.
The ability to manage all projects within a single platform also means that time can be saved that is usually lost communicating the developments of various projects within a team. By being able to have the same team member monitor projects across IT, Digital or Tech-related agencies, for example, the business’s overall progress from a range of projects can be more easily determined whilst time is saved that might usually be spent relaying information over email or in meetings. This means that, not only can the management process become more coherent across projects, but there can also be a sizeable reduction in labour costs.
How are Agencies Sourced?
By allowing agencies and clients to register with AgencyComparison.com for free, we ensure that everyone has an equal platform to tender services on. This means that, when searching for a recruitment agency in Chicago, USA, you will encounter a more varied range of suppliers beyond those that are more established. This accessibility also means that, just like comparison tools for other services, there is more competitiveness found in the quotes and pitches of suppliers. With less-experienced agencies being able to directly compete with more popular suppliers, you may discover a much better deal than anticipated.
While there are a broad range of options when searching through AgencyComparison.com, our comparison tool will only display those that are most likely to fit your requirements. This is because each recruitment agency in Chicago, USA that comes up in your search is selected intelligently. Utilising AI, machine learning and data science, we will only highlight those that are likely to fit with your project.
How do I Begin Comparing Each recruitment agency in Chicago, USA?
Before comparing agencies, it is worth considering your budget and the service that you require. Your budget is of particular importance as this will have an influence over which agencies pitch for your project. With this in mind, having an in-depth understanding of your project’s requirements will make the selection process much simpler. This can be achieved by being as concise as possible in your project’s objectives. So, if you have a tender for your project already, this is worth uploading to your account.

Simply sort results alphabetically if you can remember the name of the supplier or search by keyword.
Explore and Shortlist your Favourite Agencies
To begin the next stage of your comparison, go through the profiles that interest you most. An agency’s rating, work history, feedback, and certificates are all worth consideration at this stage. Should you like the profile of a recruitment agency in Chicago, USA after looking over it, return to your search results and click ‘Add to Shortlist’ at the right of the profile. Once a profile has been shortlisted, they will be included in your comparison, meaning that you receive quotes and pitches from them should you project interest them.
Create a project
To receive quotes from your shortlisted suppliers you must create a project. To do this, click ‘Projects’ at the top right of the home screen whilst signed in. From this, you will arrive on a page like the one above. From this page, click ‘Submit New Project’ from the menu bar along the left side of the screen.

Select from pitches

Invite existing contacts
If you happen to have a shortlist within AgencyComparison.com but would like to compare an agency that does not have an account with us, you can sent them an invite to sign up. This is especially helpful for the pitch selection process where being able to compare pitches within the same area can make things a bit easier to keep on top of.

Whilst there are a number of lead gen platforms and directories that serve as platforms for agencies, AgencyComparison.com is the first and only website that comprehensively compares suppliers for clients. As a platform that can be signed up to for free by clients and suppliers alike, there are some agencies that consider AgencyComparison.com as a lead source. This does not mean, however, that it is a lead gen platform. This is because, whilst lead gen platforms exist to sell as many leads as possible to suppliers without considering their quality, our platform exists to supplement the sourcing and managing of agency contracts.
Our platform has been made to ensure that client-agency relationships are protected and strengthened at every stage. It is by ensuring that all of the crucial elements of a project are found within our platform that any developments, good or bad, can be identified. With everything located in the same place, the risk of miscommunication or confusion can be reduced dramatically.
Other than the comparison and progress-tracking capabilities of our platform, it has also been designed with user interface in consideration. One clear way this has been implemented is by the clear division between the sourcing of agencies in the ‘Shortlists’ area of the platform and those that have been shortlisted already in the ‘Projects’ area. This means that your search for a recruitment agency in Chicago, USA, for example, can be carried out in a separate portion of the platform away from any ongoing projects you may already be involved with.
