Despite huge growth over the last quarter century, there’s still a lot of misinformation floating around the public sphere about recruiting and staffing companies. What do they do? How do they work? Do I have to pay them if they find me a job? (Absolutely not!)
Today’s job market is a far cry from the old stale image of the never-ending line at the unemployment office. When you’re looking for the next step in your career, you may be surprised to find you have a lot more options on how to conduct your job hunt. People who partner with a recruiting and staffing company are often surprised to find they instantly have more resources at their fingertips and more control over their future.
For job seekers, working with a recruiting and staffing professional offers no-cost support and guidance at each step of the job search. From reviewing your resume to matching you with the perfect position, coaching you for the big interview, negotiating your benefits package, and beyond, you work one-on-one with a dedicated career consultant.
For organizations, choosing a recruiting and staffing partner offers an opportunity to take advantage of resources (and cost savings) you might not otherwise be able to access. “Many companies lack the resources to dedicate specifically to scouting and acquiring new talent, or they don’t want to tie up their HR Department with the minutiae of hiring, “ explains Larry Hoelscher, trustaff’s Vice President of Executive Search. “A balanced recruiting strategy, which includes partnering with a professional agency, has proven to be beneficial for most companies.”
In the end, the goal of a recruiting and staffing company is to provide solutions that make it easier for both clients and job seekers reach their greatest potential. When our clients succeed and fine a great match, everyone involved benefits.
