Whether you have gone through a staffing agency to find employment or not, you may harbor some misconceptions about it.
You may think, for example, that a stint at a staffing agency makes you look less employable later on in your career. This and other misconceptions lead a lot of people to not pursue temporary work, because they do not know about all of the benefits. Let’s take a look at some misconceptions people have about working for a staffing agency.
Misconception #1 – Working for a staffing agency makes you look less employable.
Working for a staffing agency, like Forge Industrial staffing, does not make you less employable later on. It is true that you may not have as much to put on a resume if the jobs you accept from us are short-term, but if they last for 3 months or more, you can still list them. No matter how short the job was, you can still list the skills you used.
Misconception #2 – Temporary jobs mean less pay and menial labor.
Jobs through a staffing agency does not always mean less pay, and there are all kinds of jobs that we have to offer. You can have your choice of temporary jobs and tell us your minimum rate of pay so we only offer opportunities within the range you’re looking for.
Misconception #3 – Temporary jobs do not have flexible schedules.
Many temporary jobs do have flexible schedules. Like permanent jobs, some have flexible schedules while others do not. Temporary work is no different.
Misconception #4 – Temporary work never leads to a permanent job.
The misconception that temporary jobs do not lead to permanent jobs is enough to turn a lot of people off from seeking temporary employment. However, a lot of people do get permanent jobs as a result of their temporary employment. If you are seeking a permanent job, you can tell us upon applying. That way, the majority of the jobs we will send your way will be ones with a possibility of turning into permanent employment.
