Sometimes searching for a new job can feel like a full time job in itself. Devoting time and energy into finding a great job is exhausting and incredibly time consuming. From search engines to job boards to employer websites, it’s challenging to know where to look and how or when to get started.
Luckily there’s an entire industry devoted to making the job searching process easier. Staffing agencies exist to take the burden off employees. When you have a team of professionals doing the heavy lifting for you, you’re in a much better position to land your dream job.
Still not convinced? Let’s take a look at a few reasons why working with a staffing agency can help you land your dream job.
They’re professional job hunters.
Staffing agencies know the business inside and out. They’re well versed in human resources practices and know how to seamlessly place employees in the workforce. What may be a stressful or overwhelming experience for an individual job hunter is business-as-usual for a staffing agency. In other words, they take care of the difficult elements of job searching so you can focus on what matters most: Shining in that job interview and securing an employment offer.
They have the inside scoop.
Over 50 percent of jobs are never posted? Staffing agencies have industry connections and contacts that inform them about job openings immediately – before those jobs ever show up on a general employment website. Working with a staffing agency means you have access to their inside network and get your pick of the best new jobs available in your industry.
They understand your industry.
Many staffing agencies have a particular area of focus. HCR Personnel Solutions, for example, focuses on jobs in the automotive and manufacturing sector. This means that they have a firm understanding of the skillset you bring and the types of positions you would a good fit for. They can steer you in the right direction.
