Are you unsure if you should apply with a staffing company? Some people see staffing as a necessary evil where others see staffing as a bridge to employment connecting you with employers. Working with staffing companies can be very rewarding. When you apply, be honest with your staffing provider about what you are looking for. A good staffing company, will take that information in, compare it to its current openings and place you in a position that suits your needs/wants. If Â there are no current openings that meet your requirements, theÂ staffing companyÂ will be able to tell you that so you can continue seeking employment elsewhere.
It’s important to dress for success when interviewing even with your staffing company. We always recommend dressing for the job for which you are applying. If you want an office job, dress in business attire. If you are seeking light industrial work, khakis or blue jeans are likely acceptable. If you are unsure what to wear, ask the person scheduling your interview what they wouldÂ recommend.
The American Staffing Association conducted a study that showed 49% of applicants applied with a staffing company because they saw it as a way to get a permanent job while only 20% applied because they were in between permanent jobs.
