The Benefits of Using a Staffing Agency in Your Job Search…
Written by: Stacy Leone on April 28, 2016
Searching for a Job is one of the most stressful things you will go through in life. So why should you do it alone? Utilizing a staffing agency can help alleviate some of that stress and provide an opportunity that might not otherwise be available. As the owner of a Staffing and Recruiting firm here on the Eastern Shore, my team of professional staffers and I have had the opportunity to forge partnerships with a multitude employers who are searching for pre-qualified individuals to interview and hire.
I know that a lot of people associate staffing firms with “Temporary” work. Although it is true that we do provide temporary employment solutions to a variety of our clients, a lot of what we are seeing today is employers opting to utilize our services to “try someone on” before they commit to hiring. They want to make sure an employee is a good fit for the position they are trying to fill before they go through the process of making the commitment to hire someone permanently. If you are a qualified employee and an excellent match for the position, this could be your ticket into a permanent position!
On the flip side, for you, the Job Seeker, this is an occasion to get a first-hand look at certain characteristics of a company that you might not have observed during an interview. Is this somewhere you really want to work? Is it going to be a good fit for you? You have a chance to take the temporary period to evaluate a company just as the company is evaluating you!
There are so many more benefits to using a staffing firm to help gain employment…I could go on and on! However, if you’re interested in getting a little more insight to some of the benefits of working with a recruiter, check out this article I found on CareerBuilder.com. Of everything I’ve read, I think this article touches on the overall advantages using a staffing agency will give you in your job search.
