Job Placement Agencies Take the Headache Out of Finding The Right Help
Finding quality candidates can be tricky. There are a number of people looking for jobs, but who has time to go through all those resumes and interviews? Who knows how good the candidates really are or can be? This is where job placement agencies and temp agencies can help take the headache out of finding help.
Job Placement Agencies Add Efficiency
Temporary and job placement agencies have resources committed to finding the right employee for your business. They take the guesswork out of gauging a potential candidate by having a pool of qualified applicants from which to choose. These applicants have vetted resumes, have been trained or continue to train themselves on the latest software applications to better serve an employer, and have a desire to be the right fit for a company. Having an agency do this work cuts down significantly in time and resources, leaving companies free to focus on their goods and services with the best candidate filling the position.
Getting the Right Fit
Sometimes it can be difficult to find the best individual for the job. This is where job placement and temp agencies can help. They offer several ways to “try out” a potential employee or have the option of direct hire, which means the company hires the candidate directly from the company without a short-term or temporary commitment. Other venues include temporary staffing, which gives the candidate and the company a short term opportunity to determine if the job is right for the candidate and if the candidate suits the company culture. Additionally, temporary staffing can be good for seasonal or short term projects. A slightly longer term staffing type is temp-to-hire. Utilizing this scenario, a temporary employee is considered for a permanent position, giving both parties an opportunity to test the waters. Both temp and temp-to-hire are also good opportunities for students or those considering a career transition to get their foot in the door.
What to Expect
Acting along the lines of matchmaker, temp agencies screen both the candidate and the employer in order to help fill a company’s need for staffing. If you’ve never worked with one before, it’s important to be honest about your company and its needs. Also, mention anything the agency or temporary workers may need to know such as difficult managers, overtime, or anything else unusual.
