The best reason to find work through a staffing agency is the reliable connection to the jobs you need and want. However, that is far from the only reason.
Searching for employment can be tiresome and challenging even for the most qualified of candidates. Whether you’re looking for a temporary position or an all-out career change, staffing agencies can help! Administrative assistants, CEOs, production laborers, and lawyers…all have found jobs with the help of the staffing industry. Today’s staffing agencies hire for a wide range of positions, including obscure occupations you may have never thought of; which is yet another reason it makes good business sense to allow them to help you find your next position.
Staffing companies offer potential candidates the opportunity for either temporary or temporary-to-hire employment. These positions can last anywhere from 1 week to 6 months (possibly longer); either part-time or full-time. The American Staffing Association says that 94% of companies within the USA use staffing agencies to aide in the process of hiring employees and that 40% of individuals entering the job market for the first time have done so by working with a staffing agency.
Businesses of every imaginable industry turn to staffing agencies for access to talent. They understand that staffing companies are experts in recruiting and matching employees to their ideal positions. So when they have job openings, they turn to the staffing industry to help meet their workforce needs.
Recruiters at a staffing agency spend all day, every day matching candidates to the perfect job. This level of expertise can only come from repetition, focus and hard work. When it comes to job placement, this means being able to ask just the right questions of the candidate, while knowing the full background of the company and the nuanced requirements of the available position. A staffing agency’s reputation depends on matching the right candidate to the right position, so they are just as invested as you are.
While working with a staffing company, you will have the opportunity to work many different jobs, follow multiple opportunities and work for many different companies. Assignments can be long or short, full or part time, and be flexible enough to work around your pre-existing schedule. You will be able to experience a variety of industries and companies without permanent commitment. After many assignments, you’ll have a better idea of what works best for you and what type of projects you enjoy most.
Those are just a few reasons why working with a professional staffing agency like Pettit Staffing Service makes great sense for most anyone looking for a job!
