Should You Work with a Recruiting Firm? Here are Five Benefits to Consider

Role of the Client in the Recruiting ProcessWhether you’ve been unsuccessfully searching for a new job for awhile now or are just getting started on the job hunt, you’re probably wondering the best way to go about it. The job market is a competitive place, but working with a staffing firm can offer you the competitive advantage you need to get ahead.

Whether you’re looking for temporary or contract work, temp-to-hire jobs, or a direct hire position, a staffing agency can help to get you there.

Five Benefits of Working with a Staffing Firm

Instead of settling for a job you’re not crazy about, let a staffing agency help you find the position of your dreams.

1) Inside Access.
Many companies only recruit candidates through staffing firms. Open positions at these organizations are never advertised on job sites, so unless you’re working with a staffing agency, you’ll never even know they’re hiring.

2) Pathway to Permanent Position.
Companies frequently hire temporary workers for permanent jobs when their contract expires or when a fitting position opens up. Often times companies prefer to try workers out on a temporary basis to see if they’re a good fit before making a permanent hiring decision. This strategy works both ways ─ it also allows you to see if you like working at the company before making a permanent decision.

3) Fast Track to Employment.
Staffing firms have a seemingly endless amount of job opportunities at all times. If you need a job yesterday, this can be a great way to get hired ─ and fast. Your staffing specialist will work with you to find available positions that you’re both qualified for and that you find interesting, to help you get back into the workforce as soon as possible.

4) Endless Flexibility.
It can be difficult to hold down a permanent, full-time job when you have limited availability. Whether you’re a mom who can only work three days per week, a graduate student available for full-time work during only the summer months, or any other unique situation, a staffing firm will work with you to find a position that fits your schedule.

5) Career Counseling.
A staffing firm does more than simply help you find a job ─ they teach you how to get the right one. A staffing specialist serves as a consultant, helping you polish your resume, offering interview tips, and providing assistance in choosing a position that allows you to work towards your future career goals.
