Many jobseekers are hesitant to work with staffing agencies or take temporary positions. This is understandable; often, jobseekers are taught to look for stability. However, working with a staffing agency can provide numerous advantages. Here are some reasons you may want to consider working with an established staffing agency:
Gain Experience in Your Field
If you are in the early stages of your career, you may be looking for a permanent position, but contrary to popular belief, working a temporary job can help you advance your career. Companies want to hire candidates with experience, and getting hired without direct experience in your field can be difficult. By working a temporary job and gaining useful skills, you can make your future job search much easier.
Make Finding a Job Easier
Let’s be honest – very few people enjoy looking for work. Writing resumes, attending interviews, turning down jobs with low salaries; jobseekers are simply expected to do a lot. By working with a staffing agency, you can reduce your workload and focus on doing your best at your new temporary job. Staffing agencies will work closely with you to determine your particular skill set and match you with a company that will appreciate them.
Obtain a Permanent Position
Although your position might start off temporary, it is always possible it will turn into a permanent position. This is especially true if you are dedicated to doing your best and forging strong connections at your job. Temporary positions are great for hard working individuals with a drive to succeed, and more than likely, if you perform well, the company you are working for will notice this drive immediately.
Other Reasons to Work With a Staffing Agency
There are also other, less prominent, benefits of taking a temporary position. Working with a staffing agency can provide you with access to:
- A wealth of unlisted jobs
- Professional and personal references
- Unique learning opportunities
Simply put, staffing agencies can help you find jobs you normally wouldn’t be able to find.
