Staffing Resources to Consider

Career Exploration

There are many resources out there that can be really helpful to a job search that you may have not considered before. Having worked for a world-renowned staffing agency previously in my career, I can tell you that there are really good agencies out there that can get you placed in the position of your dreams more quickly than you can on your own. And they are FREE to you, as the job seeker. Agencies like this offer project staffing jobs and full-time placement covering a wide range of industries, including tech, finance, creative and legal.

Companies have used agencies like this to get their vacancies filled quickly by the experts in recruitment. Agency Business Development Managers have established relationships with leadership at these companies, and are often told when there are open positions that need help filling quickly. The company pays a hiring fee when the right candidate is found. You as the candidate should never be asked for payment. Next, the expert Agency recruiters search the Agency database for the skills, education and experience desired. After, they begin contacting with the ideal candidates to set up an initial interview.

If you get as far as getting interviewed by the Agency, make sure your resume is up-to-date, and dress expertly for the position you're interested in acquiring. How well you present yourself to the recruiters will be critical to whether or not they decide to present you to the hiring managers.

The beauty of using an agency like this, and building a relationship with the recruiter is that if you convince them of your excellence and expertise, they will aggressively market you. I have seen many successful hires out of this type of resource, and think it maybe a great way for you to get the job of your dreams. I hope information is helpful. Happy hunting, and may you find the career of your dreams!!
