Don’t Knock It Before You Try It: 7 Reasons You Should Work With a Recruiting Firm

September 28th, 2016

Are you a candidate looking for a job in the Kalispell, Montana area? After spending days on end searching through the local newspapers and career boards you may have come up against some obstacles. Or it could be that you have not found too many jobs in your area of expertise. This could be a good time for you to reach out to LC Staffing in Montana to apply for work. But you are not sure what to expect or if it is worth the effort to work through a staffing company.

Here are seven compelling reasons why a staffing agency can work in your favor as a job seeker.

#1 – You have immediate access to a large share of jobs that will not be found elsewhere. It’s been estimated that only about 10 to 20 percent of the actual jobs available in Montana are ever advertised. The rest generally get filled through staffing agencies and word of mouth. Give yourself an advantage by tapping into the staffing agency resources that can put you in touch with a hiring company much faster.

# 2 – Access to career-building resources. Many staffing agencies, like LC Staffing, are committed to helping job seekers enhance their skills through training and workshops on a variety of career topics. While you are searching for a job, you can be improving your resume or becoming more proficient with interviewing skills.

# 3 – Staffing agencies will negotiate for the highest rate of pay for you. Montana is like a lot of states where there are jobs, but some of them don’t pay very well. However, a staffing agency will arrange for temporary-to-permanent positions that pay more by the hour. Once you work through your contract terms, the company then has the option to hire you as a regular employee and you will start at that higher rate of pay.

# 4 – The staffing agency acts as an advocate for you. During the first few days and weeks on a new job, you may encounter a few challenges. When you work through a staffing agency, you have the privilege of working with a Staffing Agent who can help smooth over any problems that may occur. Your staffing agency may even visit your place of employment to check on things from time to time.

# 5 – You’ll have access to benefits. Depending on where you end up working, you may not have benefits available (if it is a small firm). Or the benefits may not be what you need. The staffing agency has access to affordable healthcare and other group benefits for associates generally within the first 30 days of employment.

# 6 – If a job ends, there will be other opportunities. When working through a staffing agency, once in a while an assignment will end unexpectedly. But instead of facing the unemployment line, you will have the benefit of a relationship with the staffing agency to help you find another job quickly.

# 7 – Flexibility is available. Temporary staffing agencies understand that sometimes people have other responsibilities, such as college or a second job, or even being a caretaker. Luckily, there are a lot of jobs available with very flexible scheduling. You may even choose to work part time or in a seasonal role with LC Staffing.
