Staffing agencies have a stigma, we get it. A lot of people think staffing agencies are just for temporary work. That is not entirely true. Did you know how a staffing agency can help you find a job that’s long term or permanent? Yes, they do hire for temporary positions but most staffing agencies hire for long-term positions as well. There are many benefits to going through a staffing agency when looking for a job or looking to change careers.
Now you’ve got the pick of the litter! When you interview with a staffing agency you aren’t just interviewing for one job. You are being interviewed for your set of skills, your personality and the perfect job fit for you. Since they have different clients across different industries they can match you with the right job so you don’t have to settle.
You may be placed on an assignment that isn’t the right fit for you or doesn’t work out. While your assignment may end, your employment with the staffing agency continues and you will be eligible for other placements. They can help you find another job that is a better fit.
It’s always hard to brag about ourselves. When you go through a staffing agency you have a person who is advocating for you to get the job that would best suit your skills. They are speaking to the employer for you, helping them see how great you are. So don’t worry, they can brag about you!
Whether you’re looking for your first job or changing careers, a staffing agency can help you figure out what you need in order to get the job you want. They can educate you on skills you need to obtain or ways to get ahead in that industry or job market. Plus, once they match you with a potential job, they’ll do number 3 above, and advocate for you.
Looking for jobs can be frustrating and time consuming. When you go through a staffing agency, you interview with them and they match you with an employer that fits what you are looking for. They do the hard part for you. All you have to do is show up for the interview with the actual business and impress them. You don’t have to go door to door begging for a job.
Next time you need a job or are thinking about changing careers, consider going with a staffing agency. You’ll be glad you did!
