What to Expect When Working with a Staffing Firm

There are few things in life that are as demanding and time-consuming as landing a new job. Utilizing the expertise of a staffing firm to aid in the process can help alleviate some of the challenges during the transition to your next job or career phase. Staffing firm recruiters provide information about new job opportunities to candidates and coach them through the hiring process, offering guidance and feedback along the way.

The ultimate goal for a staffing firm recruiter is to help worthy candidates find the most suitable job to advance his or her career and help employers find top talent to work at their company. When working with a staffing firm remember:

Be transparent and candid when discussing your career objectives with recruiters in order to build an honest, working relationship and help the recruiter identify the right types of opportunities.

Before submitting your resume online to a prospective employer, be sure to reach out to your recruiter. They are well-informed on a lot of companies in the market and can make a proactive call to gather specific information about the job. A recruiter’s connections may help you get the foot in the door you need or may offer insider information that’s useful in the application process.

Check in with your recruiter on a regular basis. Recruiters juggle multiple candidates and work on a number of different projects at a time so if you haven’t heard from a recruiter in some time, don’t assume they have forgotten about you.
