From the desk of the American Staffing Association (ASA):
“America’s staffing companies match millions of people to millions of jobs, every day. There’s one that’s right for you – go get it!”
Sounds like a simple thing for a job seeker to do, right? Absolutely! But only if you pick a staffing company with top industry credentials and a long-standing reputation for successfully matching job candidates with employers.
If you’re a job seeker looking for work opportunities in CT, there are lots of staffing agencies to consider. In fact, if you do a search online for ASA Member Staffing Firms in CT, you’ll find over 100 offices.
The first step to choosing the best CT staffing agency for your employment needs is easy; after that, it can get a little more challenging.
Start by narrowing down your choice of firms based on the type of work you’re looking for. For example, if you’re only interested in permanent, direct hire positions, then don’t choose a staffing firm that specializes in temporary work placement.
You should also narrow down your options based on the industry you want to work in. Many staffing agencies place candidates in a variety of positions – from accounting and manufacturing to technology and health care. Make sure the firms you’re considering are a good match for your target industry.
Below are 5 other key factors that should come into play when choosing a CT staffing agency. And yes – we may be a little biased – but we’re confident when we say A.R. Mazzotta delivers when it comes to these important characteristics:
If you’re seeking employment in CT, choose a staffing agency that has extensive local experience and long-standing relationships with employers throughout the state. As a locally-owned and operated CT staffing agency, A.R. Mazzotta has been in business for nearly 50 years and has strong relationships with many of the best employers in the state.
Full CT Coverage
While it’s important for a staffing agency to offer local expertise, make sure their network isn’t too limited. Through our four offices located in Middletown, Wallingford, Watertown and Westbrook, we work as one team – connecting and sharing information across all our offices, to deliver great results for our candidates and employers throughout CT.
In this digital age, personal attention is becoming scarcity everywhere – yes, even in the staffing world. But choosing a staffing agency that offers one-on-one, personalized service to job candidates and employers is an incredibly smart move. A.R. Mazzotta team realizes that a highly-personalized approach to staffing is what allows us to successfully meet the needs of the candidates and employers we work with. And it helps us stand out from other staffing agencies.
