Job searching is hard enough. It can be tiresome, stressful, lonely work that often feels like screaming into the void.
But you don’t have to go it alone! Have you considered working with a staffing agency?
What do staffing agencies do?
Staffing agencies have many perks that you might not realize. For example, they can help you refine your resume right off the bat, drawing more attention to your most marketable skills and bringing to the forefront the experience you have that will be most interesting to a potential employer.
Here’s something else you might not realize: Because staffing firms work with companies who are looking for talented new employees, they have access to and information about jobs that aren’t even posted publicly yet.
Insider information of the best kind
If you live in a small city and want to stay there, your options for new employment might seem limited. But ask a staffing agency, and you might be surprised to find out how many jobs are there for the applying! Staffing firms are in constant contact with their clients and will be aware of jobs that haven’t been posted yet or might be brand new to the company.
Staffing firms also have the expertise of knowing what their partner companies are really looking for, and they can tell whether you’d be a good fit. This could give you an inside track when it comes time to apply for a position — your staffing firm can provide you with insight into how a company thinks and operates so you can better prepare for your interview.
Temporary or full-time work options
If you’re only looking for something temporary, staffing firms have access to those types of jobs too! There might be a company looking to fill a vacancy short-term when someone’s out due to family leave or illness. Your skills might be just what that company’s looking for, but if the job isn’t publicly posted, you’d never know about it.
If you were participating in a scavenger hunt, your ideal partner would be the one with the best map and insider information on where to find all the treasures, right? A staffing agency is just like that: They know where all the good jobs are and how to find them.
