Job searching can be rough; you spend time updating your resume or work history, applying for jobs, and going to interviews; what if there was a way to make getting hired easier? Good news, there is when you consider the benefits of finding a job through a staffing agency. With over 60 years in business, we’re sharing our top four benefits you should consider about getting hired with a staffing agency.
Personal Career Coach
Instead of job searching on your own, get yourself an ally in a recruiter. A recruiter will act as a personal career coach in your job search by providing you tips to improve your resume, act as a feedback channel, will get your resume in front of the right hiring managers, and will be your advocate in getting you the job that’s the best fit for you.
Your recruiter will work with you one-on-one to go over what type of position you’re looking for, get to know your likes and dislikes about previous jobs you’ve had, and will help you make sure your resume or work history is error-free before sending it on to the hiring managers.
When you’re open and honest with your recruiter and treat the time with them as a real job interview, you’ll get the most out of your experience with a staffing agency. Recruiters are here to help you succeed and want to make sure they get you hired in a position that leads to your happiness and long-term success.
Access to More Employers
Using a staffing agency to find a job will also help get your resume in front of more employers – some you might not have even known were hiring! Recruiters work closely with the companies they send people to so they always have the latest insight on available positions at companies you’d be interested in working for.
Recruiters can send your resume to multiple employers at once. This saves you a lot of time in your job search since you won’t have to take the time to apply to each position separately.
Have Greater Opportunities for Job Flexibility
Starting a new job is exciting and a little scary at the same time, you might be apprehensive if the position is right for you or not. Luckily, when you’re working with a staffing agency, recruiters understand that your new job might not be the best fit after you’ve given it a chance and will help you transition into a different position without you having to face an uncertain amount of time unemployed.
It is important to remember that if you do get hired through a staffing agency and you don’t feel like the position is right, to communicate that to your recruiter. Instead of leaving the position without notice, share your concerns with your recruiter so they can properly get you out of the job and quickly hired into a new position.
Staffing Agencies are Free
Another benefit you should consider for finding a job through a staffing agency is that you get all the above benefits at no cost to you! Working with a staffing agency and recruiter is completely free to all applicants. You’ll gain a recruiter as your job search ally, your resume in front of more hiring eyes and in front of more companies, and job change flexibility at no cost.
If you’re ready to find a job through a staffing agency, make sure you do your research beforehand. Make sure the agency you’re going to work with has a good reputation with past candidates and has a reputable online standing – i.e., you can view their open positions on their website, the website has the agency’s core values listed, and the agency has a strong social media presence.
