12 Jul 5 Things to Know About Working with a Recruitment Firm
There is no question that the recruitment industry is growing substantially, with The Job Shoppe included in this movement from Southwest Canada to Midwest of USA. Being on the job market can be stressful at times, but connecting with a recruiter can speed up and help simplify your job search. Here are five reasons to consider working with a staffing agency:
- It’s Free!
Working with a staffing firm, such as The Job Shoppe to find a job is entirely free for you (as the candidate). Fees are covered by the companies looking to hire potential employees, which means you can take your time looking for your next career path without breaking the bank.
- Access to ‘Hidden Jobs’
Recruiters are often given positions from companies to hire that are not externally advertised on separate job boards. This can benefit your job search as its a fast track to positions others are unaware exist.
- Personalized Career Agent
Finding a job can be a full-time job – between searching the multitude of job boards, company website ads, and most recently social media. The search can be endless, but you can have a recruiter do all the steps with you – helping you find the job that’s right for you!
- Not Just for Temporary Work
One of the most common misconceptions is that recruitment agencies only provide temporary work – which is not true! Not only do most have different divisions – corporate, professional, general labour or flex shifts, but a lot of the positions offered are temporary to permanent – which means you can end up being permanent somewhere you love!
- No Pressure.
It’s your career, so you should not feel compelled when a recruiter explains a job opportunity that you may not be entirely convinced is right for you. You are aways free to pass on any opportunity a recruiter may present. This takes the stress off when interviewing, job searching and the overall process.
