What is a staffing agency?

Staffing agencies are companies that match employers with potential employees. Some agencies focus on specific industries or job types while others have relationships with many companies and help to fill various roles ranging from warehouse work to executive leaders.

An agency will typically source candidates and then place them with a hiring company. If you work with a staffing agency, often you will be an employee of the staffing agency and "placed" with a hiring company (the staffing agency's client.) There are several employment options with a staffing agency:

  • Temporary work: job placement for a specific period of time

  • Temp-to-perm: a temporary job placement that may lead to a permanent placement

  • Direct hire: where the agency connects you a hiring company and if selected, you become a direct employee of the hiring company

What can staffing agencies do for you?

Staffing agencies help you get great jobs quickly by leveraging their connections with potential employers. By working with a staffing agent, you can very quickly expand your job-seeking reach to include all of the jobs they support. In return, you become a part of their talent network, and a contact they can come back to with opportunities when they have available vacancies. Agencies can also help you identify potential job search mistakes you might be making.

Not all agencies have the same hiring models, clients (hiring companies), or levels of services. So what does "excellent service" from a staffing agent look like?

A good staffing agent will do these things

  1. Meet with you directly to determine what your hiring needs may be
  2. Help you prepare for success when you meet with their clients
  3. Connect you to opportunities in your area
  4. Remain a trusted contact as you work through their firm, checking in during your placements

Thanks for the staff & agencies' jobs. I've already applied with Aerotek, but the other jobs were either out of state or just didn't have anything for me. But thanks again.
