Is HigherMe an employment agency?
HigherMe is not an employment agency. HigherMe gives employers a set of tools which allow them to manage their hiring, keeping them in charge of the process. When you apply to a job on HigherMe, your application is being shown directly to the employer.
In comparison, employment agencies will often post jobs, conduct interviews, and, in some cases, hire candidates without the employer being directly involved in the process.
