How job seekers find work with a staffing agency

By March 7, 2015Tips for Job Seekers

Have you found yourself overwhelmed with the job search process? If you’re finding that you’re applying to dozens of jobs without success, maybe you should consider expanding your search. While many companies post job listings online or in the local newspaper, many others do not post their open positions. Instead, these companies choose to have a staffing agency fill the positions it’s often quicker and prevents the company from having to go through the pre-screening and hiring process.

Specialized staffing agencies like Forge Industrial Staffing get to know the personality and skillset of each job seeker they work with. By understanding who you are and matching you with the agencies’ vast database of companies and listings, staffing agencies can often place a new hire in far less time than traditional methods.

Staffing agencies can assist job seekers in a number of different situations.

Temporary or contract work

Often when a company chooses to use a staffing agency for hiring, they opt to bring in the employee on a temporary basis. This allows the employee and employer to determine if it’s a good match. The company may then decide to offer the employee a permanent position if they feel the employee is a good fit.

With contracted work, a company will bring in employees for a set amount of time, or month-to-month. These types of positions typically do not evolve into permanent positions.

Direct placement

In many cases, companies will build a relationship with staffing agencies to recruit top talent when it becomes available. Often referred to as “headhunters,” these agencies seek out well-qualified talent that they believe will help a company grow.
