Want a New Job in 2018? Here Are the Reasons a Staffing Agency Helps

Posted March 20, 2018

If you happen to be on the lookout for a new job or planning on switching careers, the end of the year is a good time to make a move.

With the freedom to try out multiple industries, jobs and employers without making long-term commitments, a staffing company can allow you to figure out the next step on your career path. Furthermore, when you work with a team of staffing specialists, you gain even more insight on your career path.

Transitioning jobs can be a stressful experience, and you may want to think about getting the assistance of a staffing service. Consider the following in-depth reasons on why you should look to a staffing firm to kick off your New Year’s job search.

It's so easy

It doesn't cost anything to use a staffing company on your job hunt. Companies pay staffing firms to seek out the best-fit candidates for their open positions, so job seekers simply hunt for jobs on the company's site or register to have the company start connecting their qualifications with jobs that are out there.

A staffing firm makes it simpler to find a part-time job, temporary work or the full-time job of your dreams.

Get a foot in the door

A staffing company could also help by connecting you to jobs in a specific industry or business where you want to work. In addition to checking out the staffing agency's job boards, the company may also provide access to jobs in particular businesses that are not available to the public yet. If you register with an agency, you can get a foot in the door, before your competitors. Staffing agency personnel will often call a business you are curious about to find out if they have any opportunities.

A bridge to permanent work

While you might be looking for a permanent position, part-time or temporary work gained through a staffing agency can become a full-time position.

As the economy has picked up steam and more employers have added jobs, there has been a major rise in the numbers of temporary employees getting offered full-time jobs. With that being said, there's never been a better time to try parlaying a temporary position into a full-time one.

Work and network

When you get a new job, it's more than just a paycheck and a chance to gain experience; it's also a networking opportunity. You meet all kinds of people when you start a new job and some of them will likely become a permanent part of your professional network. Even if a temp job doesn't turn into a permanent position, you could be walking out of the situation with permanent connections that could benefit your career in the long term.
