How_Staffing_Firms_Can_Help_Job_Seekers.jpgLooking for work is tough in the uncertain and competitive job market. Spending hours upon hours scouring the internet for job opportunities, networking, and writing and re-writing your resume and cover letter can take its toll, especially when you try your hardest to find a job and don’t hear anything back from hiring managers.

But regardless of the type of job you’re looking for or the industry you want to be in, you can count on a staffing agency to offer help.

Staffing agencies help match job seekers with great job opportunities that suit their personal and professional interests, experience, and skill level.

Here are just some of the reasons why job seekers should partner with staffing firms to find employment.

Opportunities Abound

Staffing agencies can place great job opportunities at your fingertips. They can give you access to the hidden job market so you can apply to jobs that you didn’t even know existed. If you’ve been seeing the same old job postings online and no new opportunities that you’re interested in, then being able to take advantage of the hidden job market is ideal. Staffing firms have exclusive contracts with some of the biggest employers, so they know about jobs that you don’t. Plus, since these job openings aren’t advertised anywhere, the competition is cut significantly, giving you a better shot. From temporary and part-time work to full-time, permanent jobs, the opportunities are endless.

Free Services

Maybe your resume is holding you back. Maybe your interview preparedness isn’t what it should be. Staffing firms offer job seekers more than just placement opportunities. They also offer other free services as well. You could benefit from resume fixes that will help you land the job, acquiring additional training to improve your skills, and getting interview tips to give you an edge. Staffing firms can also give you salary insight and advice and negotiation help to get the best compensation.

Legwork No More

Job seekers have to put in a lot of legwork in order to just get a shot at an interview. And this legwork can be time consuming, tedious, and frustrating to deal with. But when job seekers partner with staffing firms, they no longer have to do any of it. The recruiters will seek out appropriate job opportunities. They’ll apply to jobs for you. They’ll talk to the hiring managers and they’ll secure the interviews. All you’ll have to do is say whether or not you’re interested in any given position and show up for the interview. Your job search will be easier and simpler than ever before.

Adding Credence to Your Application

When hiring managers are bombarded with dozens, or even hundreds, of job applications for their open positions, it can be hard to stand out from the pack. Your application doesn’t have any more weight than your competitors’.

Staffing firms, though, can add credence to your application. Employers that work with recruiters trust them and will listen to them when they’re told to seriously consider you for the job. Your recruiter will go to bat for you and push for an interview. Your application will go to the top of the list, giving you a better chance at getting the job.
