Looking for a new job is tiring, frustrating, and time-consuming work. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone who understands you, and the kind of work you do, to help make it a little easier?
You can! Teaming up with a specialized staffing firm can help you make faster work of the job searching process.
Here’s why a specialized staffing agency can be your best ally when job searching.
They know your industry.
When you work with a staffing firm that focuses on a particular industry or line of work, they’re going to know what’s going on in that world. They’ll know what hiring managers are looking for, what kind of skills are in demand, who’s not hiring today but will be soon, and perhaps most importantly, the going rate of pay for the work you do. They can help you understand the state of the industry and where your skills would be most in-demand and likely to attract the most interest. This can help you direct your job search thanks to their insider info.
They know who’s hiring.
It’s worth mentioning again: Staffing agencies know which companies are hiring. They know who will have job openings soon, which companies are looking to expand in the next six months, and even which companies are looking for temporary help to complete a project.
They have relationships with their clients.
Staffing agencies, especially those who specialize in a particular kind of work or industry, build strong relationships with the companies they partner with, meaning they know well what kinds of backgrounds, training, and skill sets hiring managers are looking for. Their recommendations on candidate applications are given extra weight because hiring managers know their recruiters are well-informed and have their demands in mind — a good word from a staffing firm could be the extra “in” you need to get the job!
They can help you build your resume.
Given their insider knowledge and relationships, these staffing agencies can help you understand how to format your resume to highlight the skills of most interest to a hiring manager. They’ll speak the same language and can help you do the same, especially if you’re looking to change jobs or industries. They can help you tell your story in a powerful and effective way that will put your application above the others.
