How a Staffing Agency Can Help Your Entry-Level Job Search

entry-level job searchThere are different reasons why you or someone you know might be in the market for an entry-level job. Perhaps you just graduated from trade school, technical school, community college, or a four-year college and are ready to land your first ‘real’ job. Or maybe you’ve switched careers and are looking to get in on the ground floor of a brand-new industry. Whatever the reason, working with a staffing agency for an entry-level job search (or really any job search for that matter!) has its advantages. Here are a few ways staffing agencies can give you a leg up on landing the perfect entry-level job.

A staffing agency can open the door to more job opportunities
There are many employers that don’t advertise their job openings. They work directly with a staffing agency, like A.R. Mazzotta, that takes care of the entire hiring process for them. So that means when you work with a staffing agency, you could be considered for job opportunities that you wouldn’t even know about if you were flying solo for your job search.

Recruiter expertise can help accelerate your job search
Oftentimes, job seekers (especially those who are new to the working world and seeking entry-level employment) don’t have the knowledge and experience to carry out a successful job search. Working with a recruiting professional – someone who has deep knowledge of the staffing industry and the current employment landscape – helps keep your job search on the fast track. A good recruiter will take time to get to know you, your skills and your employment goals, and will focus your job search on opportunities that are best suited for you.

A staffing agency can provide growth opportunities
Some staffing agencies offer skill assessments and online training services that evaluate an employee’s skill level and provide recommendations for growing and improving their job performance. At A.R. Mazzotta, training like this is free for qualified employees and other tools and support services are available for growth opportunities.

Diverse employment is available through staffing agencies
A variety of job types are often plentiful when working with a staffing agency. While some may only specialize in permanent, full-time employment or employment for senior-level executives, many offer diverse job opportunities including temporary/contract work, temp-to-hire jobs, or direct placement. If you’re not quite sure what type of job you’re looking for, a staffing agency can help you explore different options.
