Here’s Why You Should Start a Relationship with a Staffing Agency to Successfully Re-Enter the Workforce

Federal benefits are coming to an end for all states, and it’s time to re-enter the workforce. What if you had a free resource that could help improve your resume, practice interviewing, and, if you’re the right fit, introduce you to top employers. A recruiting firm can do all of these things. If you’re getting ready to reenter the workforce, here’s how a staffing agency can help you transition back to a better job.

Benefits of Working with a Staffing Agency

It’s a stressful time for a lot of people faced with finding work right now. Staffing agencies, also called recruiting firms or temp or employment agencies work with companies to find qualified job candidates to fill open positions. Despite what you may think, firms like Lingo Staffing have good full-time permanent roles in addition to temp-to-hire or contract positions. Since the companies pay the recruiting firms fees, this is a free service to job seekers.

You Have the Opportunity to Work With Top Companies

Today’s staffing firms work with some of the top companies in the U.S. to help them staff up. This is particularly true during a labor shortage such as the one we have right now. Job seekers upload their resumes to the staffing firm’s database by applying to specific jobs. The agency interviews the job seeker and then presents their candidacy to the company seeking to hire. This representation is a huge benefit for candidates seeking to get their foot in the door of a good company. The staffing agency basically does the job searching for you, and it’s all free to the candidate.

You Can Get a Taste for the Job Before You Commit Full-Time

If the job is a temp-to-hire position, the recruiting firm carries the temp worker’s salary and benefits. The benefit for the temp employee is that they can try out the opportunity before accepting a permanent position.

Staffing Agencies Know Their Markets, No Matter How Niche

There’s a lot of variety in staffing agencies, and this also benefits candidates. Most recruiting firms specialize in one or more job areas. Some agencies staff warehouse and industrial jobs while others work in high-level skilled areas like technology or healthcare. The trick for you is to find the agency that matches your skills, send them your resume, and then wait for them to set you up with opportunities—that is, if you’re a good match.

Recruiters Can Give You Interview Tips

A key benefit of working with a staffing agency like Lingo Staffing is that we can provide you with feedback on your interview style, resume, and even give you job advice that will help match your skills to the right role. We work one-on-one with our job candidates, so they improve their ability to market themselves to employers. This kind of free advice is always very valuable to a job seeker.
