Setting Yourself Up for Success – How a Staffing Firm Can Help You Reach Your Career Goals

 In Career Advancement, Job Search Tips and Tricks

When you’re looking for a new job opportunity, taking advantage of every resource is wise. By expanding your search, you increase your access to openings, including some you may not be able to find otherwise.

If you’re trying to take the next step in your career, working with a staffing firm can be an ideal move. If you’re wondering how a recruitment agency can help you reach your career goals, here are just a few of the ways a staffing firm can make a difference.

Assistance from Job Search Experts

Partnering with a staffing agency means getting access to a skilled recruiter who understands the ins and outs of landing a new position. They’ll be able to assist you in key areas – including resume updates and interview preparation – to ensure you come across as a standout candidate.

Plus, they’ll be able to help you adjust your approach as required, targeting your resume and updating your interview answers based on a hiring manager’s unique needs. That way, you’ll be more likely to impress, increasing the odds that you’ll advance through the hiring process.

Streamlining Your Job Search

When you partner with a recruitment agency, you streamline your job search. Your recruiter will handle a lot of the legwork, exploring open positions to find one that meets your needs and matches your capabilities. Then, instead of you having to send in a fresh application, your recruiter will present your resume to the client on your behalf and, if appropriate or necessary, arrange for the interview.

Access to Multiple Opportunities

Working with a staffing firm isn’t the same as putting an application in at one company. Instead of a limited number of opportunities with a single employer, recruitment agencies have access to a wide range of positions as a broad selection of local companies.

Additionally, partnering with a staffing agency isn’t the same as placing your resume on a career site. Instead of your application sitting passively in a database, your recruiter will actively market you to area employers, having direct conversations with hiring managers that could benefit from your expertise.

Access to Exclusive Opportunities

Along with publicly announced vacancies, many staffing agencies are the sole candidate source for specific area companies. Additionally, they may fill positions that aren’t advertised publicly. By partnering with a recruitment agency, you get access to these exclusive opportunities.

Multiple Job Types Available

Staffing firms don’t just fill temporary positions. While temp jobs are certainly part of what’s available, recruitment agencies also need candidates for temp-to-hire and direct placement opportunities. As a result, it’s possible to secure both short- and long-term positions by working with a staffing agency, giving you the ability to find options that align with your goals best.
