Help Finding a Good Job Even During A Pandemic

2020 has been a challenging year in many regards. COVID-19 was unexpected and has caused a lot of financial issues for both individuals and families.  

The pandemic and shutdowns have caused many people to lose their jobs. For some other individuals, the health crisis put a halt to their once-promising job search.

Assistance With Your Resume And Interview Skills

Creating a professional resume, cover letter, preparing for interviews, posting your information on job sites, calling companies and all of the other details that go into the job search can feel like a full-time job itself. 

When you work with a staffing agency a lot of that work is alleviated. The professionals at the staffing agency will coach you through the job search process and give you invaluable feedback that helps you find a job fit quickly. 

If your resume needs some help and you have trouble with interviews, don’t worry! Your coach at the staffing agency will help you through it!

A Large Network

Employment agencies have incredibly large networks that you as a job searcher may not have alone. This means that there will be a lot more job options available to you when you work with a staffing agency. 

Sparks Group says,

Looking position by position for the new role is a taxing and time-consuming process; staffing firms already have an eye on the full breadth of available positions that a candidate may fit into.  

While a job seeker may focus on a single position, company, or interview at a time, a recruitment agency has a large number of open positions to fill at a time. A staffing agency can consider a job applicant for a wide number of open positions at once, using their expertise to match the candidate to their ideal position and company.

When you work with employment agencies that have large networks, it is much more likely you will quickly find a company to work for that fits your skills and qualifications.

Finding A Company Where You Can Have A Great Career

If you have been desiring to have a prosperous and long term career, you can work with a staffing agency to get interviews with companies in your field that are hiring for long term positions. 

According to The Balance Careers,

Some staffing agencies hire candidates for permanent positions at companies. In these situations, the agency works more like a traditional recruiter, finding, interviewing, and selecting candidates for the company. In this case, the company pays the agency a fee. If the company hires an employee, they pay for the employee

You can start a beautiful and long-lasting career with the help of a staffing agency.

The Ability To Try Different Types Of Jobs Through Temping

On the other hand, if you are not sure yet exactly what area you want to land in for a career, temping may be a great idea for you!

You can temp at a variety of different companies within a multitude of fields. This time of temp work may help you decide what area you desire to work full time. 

Once you find a field you love you can talk to the staffing agency about doing temp-to-hire, or you can ask to begin looking for more permanent placements within that field.

Regardless of the path you choose, working as a temp can help you come to see the type of work you enjoy and that you are good at.
