If you are in the market for a new job, there are several benefits to working with a staffing agency like A.C. Coy. Individuals looking for a new job while still employed may need to balance their current work demands while searching for something new. Those who are unemployed may have more of a sense of urgency behind their search. Trying to be engaged in job boards and networking events can be overwhelming. However, working with a staffing agency can help you balance all of this and find the right job for you.
Recruiters Do The Searching For You
When you are searching for a new job, you have a lot to think about. You are working on creating a resume that showcases your skills in a meaningful way, practicing mock interviews, researching companies, and on top of that, you have to find a job to actually apply to. A lot of the stress behind a job search is the search itself. Working with an agency gets rid of that aspect of finding a new job. Instead, the recruiters do the searching for you.
Get Access to More Than One Job Opening
Another downfall of searching for a job on your own is that you are typically limited to listing on job sites. This means you are usually applying to one at a time and waiting to hear back. Not to mention, looking through job post after job post is extremely time-consuming. When you work with a staffing agency, like A.C. Coy, you can gain access to more than one opening at a time. They can consider one applicant for a wide variety of open positions at once.
Be Sure You Match the Job and the Company
Have you ever gotten a new job and realized almost immediately you don’t completely enjoy the company culture or the work itself? When you work with an agency, you can be sure you are a good match for the job and company before getting started. They put a lot of work into understanding what makes someone a good fit for a position. Recruiters will have insider knowledge about the company and the job itself. This will help them, and you know if you’ll be a good fit.
Temporary Staffing is a Perk
Staffing agencies also tend to have several temporary positions available. Taking a temp or temp-to-hire job can help you get a feel for whether or not you want to work for the company in question. It can also give you an idea of what kind of position you’d prefer to be placed in. Typically, temp jobs are only available by working with a staffing agency.
Receive Feedback That is Valuable
Along with the benefits listed above, working with a staffing agency can also provide you with valuable feedback on your resume, skills, and interviews. They can give you an idea of what you need to do to land the job you are looking for. All of this can help increase your chances of getting an offer.
By working with A.C. Coy, you’ll have access to multiple job openings at once, be better matched to jobs and companies, along with several other perks. Visit our jobs page to see how we can help you with your job search.
