Why Should I Use a Staffing Agency to Find a Job?

01.21.20 | Job Search

Many people are asking: why should I use a staffing agency to find a job?” And we don’t blame them. Using a staffing agency can seem like a roundabout way to find a job, especially when there are so many “easy” and “automatic” ways to apply for jobs online. However, most services that promise “instant” results are missing important elements crucial to any job hunt: hard work and a personal touch. That’s why Workbox Staffing offers a local and personalized approach to your job search. 

Workbox Staffing is Local 

The first reason to use Workbox Staffing to find a job is because we’re local. We know where to look for the best jobs and who is hiring in your area. We’ve built connections within many local industries and our recruiters are ready to find you a job that matches your skills and experience. Each one of our locations is a physical office where you can come in, say hello, and talk with us about what kind of job you’re interested in. Our recruiters take time to get to know you and your goals before setting out to find you the perfect position. 

It’s Free For Job Seekers 

We don’t charge you for submitting an application or surprise you with hidden fees. Workbox Staffing is free for job seekers and always will be. Employers looking to hire come to us for qualified employees and we connect them with you! We match those searching for a job with those looking to hire. The more matches we can make, the happier everyone is.

We Get Things Done 

Not only do we build connections within our local area, we believe there’s a job for everyone. Even with the U.S. unemployment rate at an all-time low, there are still plenty of jobs for those looking to work. As a staffing agency, it’s our job to find you work, and this is a responsibility we take seriously. Our recruiters and other supporting staff are a group of highly motivated people who love to get things done. If you’re looking for a job, we’ll get you where you need to go.  

We’ve Got Your Back 

Another reason to choose Workbox Staffing is that we know how stressful finding a job can be. We’ve all been there. Our recruiters understand your frustrations and can speak to many of the challenges you face. Don’t worry, we know that job hunting can be overwhelming and even downright terrifying. That’s why we’re always ready to answer your questions and give advice. We’re an honest and down-to-earth group of people who don’t waste time talking about what we should do—we actually roll up our sleeves and get to work. 

We Keep Your Resume Out of the Black Hole  

Have you ever heard of the resume “black hole”? It’s something that often happens to job seekers when using the big online job boards. At first glance, these sites may seem like a great option for finding a job, but in reality, there are so many job seekers using the platform it’s unlikely you’ll ever hear back on an application. Here’s just how big some of these sites actually are:

  • Monster boasts that there are 29 new resumes uploaded per minute. That equals 7.6 new resumes per year!
  • Indeed says they have 150 million resumes on file, and 250 million monthly visitors.  
  • ZipRecuiter has 7 million active job seekers per month, and 40 million job alert email subscribers.
