Should I Use a Staffing Agency to Find a Job?

Temp agencies are not what they used to be. In fact, we don't consider ourselves a temp agency at all.

Let’s face it: There’s an elephant in the room we need to address.

It’s big, it’s loud, and it’s in-your-face.

No, not that one.

There is a stigma about “temp agencies” that we need to talk about right now. Because, if we’re being 100% honest, these stigmas are hurting you more than they’re hurting us.

“Temp Agency” doesn’t cover it.

In fact, we don’t like that phrase at all. We actually choose to refer to ourselves as a staffing firm, because we do not fit into the standard of what is often perceived as being a temp agency.

Temporary isn’t always the case.

Just because a position may be labeled temporary does not always mean that it is. Most companies will hire on a temp-to-perm basis. This means businesses want to make sure someone is a good fit for their company before they make them a full-time employee. This benefits candidates as well because they get to see the work environment and decide at the end of the process if this is a job or field they want to continue to pursue, or if they want to try something different.

Our jobs cover a variety of fields.

People tend to shy away from an agency because they don’t believe they’ll end up in a position that will help them gain experience in their desired career field. However, we work with a large variety of fields: Customer service, law firms, medical, marketing, finance, and several more. You can view our job listings here.
