5 Benefits to Starting Your Job Search with a Staffing Agency

01.01.20 | Job Search

Jumping back into the job search can be a little intimidating. It doesn’t matter if it’s been months or years since you last jumped in – the waters of opportunity are murky. There are thousands of jobs swirling around, meaning you need to navigate to the right one and then do your best to get noticed in a sea of other candidates.

Don’t worry, we have good news. There’s a way to make everything easier for you that can deliver even better results. Here are five benefits to working with a staffing agency during your job search.

1. You’re not in it alone.

The job search doesn’t have to be you in front of a computer every day hoping for the best. Instead of going at your search alone, your recruiter will work with you day by day to search for and present opportunities that fit your skills, interests, and experiences. They guide you through the process to give you the best chance of getting hired and never leave you feeling neglected.

2. Specific to your career.

You’re not a ‘one size fits all’ employee that can step into any void, and the right employment agency isn’t either. Recruiters fall in specialties, just like you, meaning you can find an agency that knows your industry. With knowledge of what you do and the field you work in, a recruiter can find the right openings for you.

3. Insider knowledge.

More than just partnering with you, your staffing agency will have insider knowledge to positions that aren’t publicly promoted. They spend years and years building relationships with clients so that when a position opens up, they’re the first to know and trusted to find the perfect person for the role.

4. Leverage connections.

Considering the fact that your recruiter has insider knowledge also means they may have some pull. Rather than firing off a resume into the void, a staffing agency may have a relationship with a company where they can speak directly to the hiring managers on your behalf.

5. Work toward your goals.

Most importantly, as your partner in the job search, a recruiter will get to know you and what you want out of your career. They won’t simply look at your resume and find jobs based on what’s listed. They’ll talk to you about it, as well as what you want to do and what you want to achieve. In building this relationship, they’re learning everything they can to make sure you’re getting the most out of your career.
