apply via an Agency or direct to the company

Have seen an interesting job advertised on an agency website and subsequently found out who the company is. Do you think I would stand a better chance of getting an interview going with the agency or applying direct?

Re: apply via an Agency or direct to the company

I'm no expert but in such cases I always apply directly. It shows that I'm interested in that particular company and have taken the time and effort to browse through their website. On the other hand, good agencies carry a certain weight and they might actually aid you in getting the job. So I really don't know but I guess I'd apply directly. But maybe that's just me...
