It doesn’t always have to be so tough and that’s where staffing agencies come in. A staffing agency works with you to find temporary or full-time help in positions the company needs filled immediately. Those staffing agencies are responsible for posting jobs, vetting candidates, and eventually hiring full-time employees.
It’s not secret that a good staffing agency can take the stress out of a job search that might otherwise drag on and on. Here’s why according to an article on Glassdoor:
1. You can work temporarily while still job searching.
Even if you don’t see the position you hold during a temporary job as your life’s calling, it can provide a valuable source of income while you continue the search for your dream job.
2. Your temporary job may actually lead to employment.
Not all companies hire staffing agencies only for temporary jobs. For some companies, hiring employees who are temporary at first is a way of vetting them before taking them on as a permanent fixture at the company.
3. Skill-building opportunities are aplenty.
Temporary jobs can be a valuable opportunity to quickly build resume-boosting skills. The skills you learn after a few months on the job can leverage you into your next, permanent job.
4. Staffing agencies often have faster turnaround times than regular jobs.
When companies hire a staffing agency, they’re usually looking for the position to be filled as soon as possible. Since the staffing agency is also in a contract with the company to fill the position, the staffing agency’s goal is to fill the position in a timely manner. While it may take weeks to even hear back about an interview after sending in an application to a company itself, temping agencies speedily and efficiently get positions filled.
5. The contacts you make, you can keep.
Working temporarily can help you make contacts in a company or an industry. Even if you’re stationed somewhere for a short time, make it your mission to reach out to fellow employees at the company and network. And even if the company you’re stationed at doesn’t have any open positions, your colleagues may have insider knowledge about open jobs in similar companies. You never know where a strong network will lead you.
6. You can flexibly explore different work environments
Perhaps part of the reason it’s been difficult to find a job is that you’re not quite sure what’s the right job for you. Working with a staffing agency can help you get exposure to many jobs and industries in a short time. This can help clarify and focus your job application process. And when you do apply to jobs, you can speak from experience about what you really love about working in that industry.
