Whether it’s due to a long stretch of unemployment or a lack of advancement opportunities at your current job, career stagnation is something you want to put an end to as soon as possible. Working with a staffing agency is one effective approach to move forward.
According to a survey by the American Staffing Association, 90 percent of people who have worked with a staffing agency say that doing so made them a more valuable professional.
With the assistance of a staffing company, you aren’t just randomly applying to jobs and hoping for the best. Instead, you’re getting help with your search. Your abilities, experience and qualifications are all considered to help locate businesses and job openings which will be suitable for you. A staffing company also accounts for your personality, priorities, location, desire to relocate and career objectives.
Opportunities in many jobs and industries
Staffing agencies try to find applicants to fill a wide variety of jobs – from executives to front-line employees – across a range of industries. This means a staffing company can likely connect you with a job that suits your distinctive background.
Employment agencies try to line you up with the jobs that are best suited to your experience, skills and goals. Consequently, you can frequently decide when, where, and how you would like to work: part-time, full-time; first-, second- or third-shift; permanent, temporary, seasonal, in an office, in a factory or out in the field.
And, if you work multiple temporary assignments, you can gain a much wider range of experiences than if you had a single, full-time job over the same time span.
Get a foot in the door
A job search is a full-time job in itself, and you’ll probably be facing tough competition from other people looking for work. Staffing agencies work full-time to find the best talent for their clients. If you are a good match for a client’s open position, the company can help get rid of barriers and move your application to the top of the pile.
A good staffing agency provides you with the career development and support you need to get ahead, from showing you how to best present yourself, to showing you how you can make yourself more valuable to potential employers. Staffing agencies also help with resume writing, interviewing advice and training suggestions, as well as job support after you’ve been placed into a new role.
Staffing companies are paid by businesses who want to locate quality applicants. If a staffing agency ever tells you that you need a pay a fee, walk away and find one of the many that don’t.
