Staffing firms have long been a way for job seekers to get an edge on their competition. Now that the COVID-19 pandemic has completely upended the world of employment as we knew it, sending the unemployment rate soaring, a staffing agency can be your ticket back to work…and it’s completely free for those seeking employment! Here are a few reasons you should consider partnering with a staffing firm.
Sending off a pile of resumes can feel like throwing spaghetti at the wall in hopes that something sticks. When you work with a staffing firm, you’ll have access to your Recruiter’s entire network of clients, all of whom are eager to hire. If you’re on unemployment, working with a staffing firm also makes it easier to document the fact that you are actively job hunting.
Your Recruiter is like a coach who really wants you to be successful. They can help you figure out what you want your career path to look like by identifying what tasks make you happy and fulfilled. Working together, you and your Recruiter can lay out your future path and divide it into concrete, achievable goals. Your Recruiter is also there for you throughout the application process, from polishing your resume to preparing for interviews, and you can call them with questions whenever you’d like.
Long Term Support
Even when you land a position, your Recruiter will be there for support. They can assist you with the onboarding process and follow up with you throughout your time on the job. If the first job is temporary, or simply isn’t the right fit, your Recruiter can help you find your next position. This frees you up to take work that sounds interesting, even if it’s outside your comfort zone – because you can be confident that you have someone in your corner.
COVID-19 disrupted the world of work as we know it, and you may be uncertain and worried about your future. Working with a staffing firm can help you simplify the process of finding your next job while providing the advice and support you need to get your career back on track.
