Misconceptions can hurt your efforts to find a job quickly.

For instance, many job seekers avoid partnering with a staffing firm because they mistakenly believe that these agencies are strictly for those who want temporary work. They also don’t work with them because they think they must pay to work with a recruiter.

These two perceptions are not true for all staffing agencies, so those people who hold on to these ideas could be missing out on an opportunity to enhance their chances of landing a dream job.

Finding the right job can be an overwhelming process, so it makes sense to take advantage of every available resource. And if you aren’t even considering partnering with a staffing agency, you’re missing out on a valuable resource. Here’s why:

Your Job Search Will be More Efficient

Searching for a job can be unnerving. Trying to find the right open jobs, researching potential employers, and setting up interviews can take up large chunks of your time. When you partner with a staffing agency, you’ll streamline the process and give focus and direction to your search.

You’ll Be Working With an Experienced Recruiter

Skilled recruiters ask the right questions:

  • What are your career goals?
  • What type of work environment are you seeking?
  • Would you prefer the flexibility of contract work?
  • What would you like to see in a future job that you don’t have now?

Armed with the answers, your recruiter can narrow the search and home in on the jobs that fit your criteria. They cut through all those job titles, confusing job descriptions, and postings and provide you with only those that make sense for you.

You Immediately Have Access to Numerous Employers and Jobs

Staffing agencies have hundreds, even thousands, of clients who are looking for workers just like you. The recruiters are continuously communicating with those who have the authority to hire you, and they take on the role of liaison between you and the hiring company. Because of the agency’s relationships, you will see job openings that are not available through the usual job sites. And your partnership with a staffing firm will allow you to have many more options than if you were searching on your own.

You Will Have Help Scheduling Interviews and Update Your Resume

Your recruiter will coordinate your interviews and assist you in preparing for them. Also, they will recommend ways to edit your resume so that it is tailored for the company to which you are applying. After you have been hired, your recruiter will follow up and stay in touch with you to make sure things are going well in your new position.
