    Default FREE PLACEMENT, NO SERVICE CHARGE

    There is a recruitment agency posting an online advert for hiring local people to work abroad. At the bottom of the advert, it stated,

    "FREE PLACEMENT, NO SERVICE CHARGE"
    __________________________________________________ __

    1. What does FREE PLACEMENT mean?
    2. Does NO SERVICE CHARGE mean :

    • the agent would not charge the successful candidate for commission?
    • the agent would not charge for referral of attending the interview?

    It means if you get a job by dealing with this recruitment agency, they won't charge you a fee - you won't have to pay for it. The service charge would be money you pay for getting a job through the recruitment agency. They will charge the company that hires you money. I would be careful about advertisements like this because I think it's strange to have to "pay to get a job" in the first place.
