There’s no question the staffing and recruitment industry is growing considerably, with millions of Americans employed on any given business day. If you’re an active job seeker or simply looking to expand your career prospects, connect with a staffing coordinator who can speed up and simplify your job search. Here are five reasons to consider working with a staffing agency:
1. Recent grads need real-world work experience. While working with a staffing agency you are gaining valuable real-world experience that you can add to your resume.
2. Companies rely on staffing agencies. As the business community embraces an “on-demand” workforce, more and more employers are turning to staffing firms who use emerging job search technologies alongside their human instincts to deliver the best-fit talent they are looking for.
3. Recruiters can be your career agent. We all know wading through the online world of job listings, LinkedIn and social media can be complicated, time-consuming and frustrating. You don’t have to go it alone. We have posted a couple examples of people who have “found a job every time they walked through the door” here at All Star Labor & Staffing. Both Terry and Ed worked consistently over a decade with us and now have found themselves in a full-time, forever job that they are extremely happy with.
4. Not just for temps! Many people assume staffing agencies only offer temporary positions. Our staffing coordinators are often asked to search for full-time, permanent and temporary-to-hire positions across a wide range of industries. Even workers who begin working as a temporary employee are often hired permanently after proving their value. In fact, we have found that roughly 40 percent of companies we place temps at say many of the top talent in their company began as an All Star temporary worker.
5. It’s free. There aren’t many things you get for free these days, but working with a staffing company is one of them. With the many benefits a job seeker can access through a staffing firm, why wouldn’t you work with one?
