How-a-Staffing-Firm-Can-Help-You-Find-Office-Jobs.jpgEven experienced and skilled job seekers have trouble finding employment. The job search can be lengthy and frustrating. You must spend hours each day scouring the internet for office jobs, networking, re-writing your resume and cover letter, and attending interviews. And oftentimes, all of this work leads to nothing.

Instead of continuing on your job search for office jobs blindly, consider applying to a staffing firm instead. Employing a middle man can make your job search easier, simpler, and more successful. Here’s how.

It’s Free

There are a lot of myths surrounding staffing firms, so we’ll start by dispelling the most common one that might be making you hesitant to contact an agency: the commission fee. It’s important to note that all of the services that a reputable staffing firm will offer you are completely free to you. You do not have to pay a fee or give the agency a piece of your paycheque. The recruiters get paid by the companies seeking talented office workers.

At no cost to you, you’ll get the assistance you need to find office jobs that suit your needs, abilities, and experience.

You’ll Gain Access to More Jobs

No doubt, if you’ve been looking for work for a while now, you’re tired of seeing the same old job ads on every job board—ads that you’ve already applied for or aren’t interested in.

When you work with a staffing firm, you’ll gain access to more jobs—and the hidden job market. The majority of employment opportunities, especially the good ones, aren’t advertised online, so you’ll never know about them on your own.

Many companies go straight to their staffing partner when looking for talent. Working with a recruiter can give you access to the hidden job market—all of those opportunities that aren’t advertised anywhere.

Your Recruiter Will Do All of the Legwork for You

Instead of spending every day searching for jobs, emailing resumes, and researching companies, why don’t you let your own personal recruiter handle this tedious work for you?

When you work with a staffing agency to find office jobs, you won’t have to do any of this legwork anymore. Your recruiter will seek out opportunities that you’d be interested in. Your recruiter will send out your resume and schedule your interviews. All you’ll have to do is express your interest and show up to the interview. It’s that easy.

Your Recruiter Wants You to Succeed

Perhaps you’re not really sure which type of office jobs you’d love. Maybe your resume could use a little fixing up. Maybe your interview skills aren’t as great as they could be. Your recruiter has a stake in your success. If you’re great at your job and the placement is a success, this gives the staffing firm a good reputation. Your recruiter will work with you to ensure that the job is a perfect match for you and that you’re ready and able to perform, both in the hiring process and on the job. You’ll get the help you need.

Your Recruiter Will Go to Bat for You

A referral can go a long way to getting the attention of a hiring manager. Instead of being stuck at the bottom of a pile of resumes on a desk, you can go right to the top when you have a recruiter going to bat for you. Hiring managers and recruiters have long-term, trusting relationships. If your recruiter tells the manager that you would be great for the office job and that you should be given a chance, the manager will more than likely listen.
