What are some reasons to work with a staffing firm?

Oh, the joys of job hunting. It’s something we’ve all experienced. The long hours, the never-ending questions, the feelings of hopelessness. Sound about right? Well, good thing there are staffing agencies (like LGC!) that want to help. Here are four reasons to work with a staffing firm.

4 Great Reasons to Work with a Staffing Firm

Narrows your search  

The number of job sites out there can be overwhelming. It takes a lot of time to scout out the job you’re looking for. You may also run into jobs that are fake or a scam, especially post-pandemic. Staffing agencies will likely have several jobs lined up for you already. All you need to do is send in one application and let them do the rest. No more searching or filling out 20 applications.  

It’s free  

Did you know that it’s free to work with a staffing firm? Yes, the service (connecting you with work opportunities) is free of charge. So why not take advantage of this great resource? If you’re wondering how it works, staffing agencies will charge their client a percentage of the workers’ pay rate. Staffing agencies typically charge 25%-100% of the employees’ wages. There’s no risk in signing up with a staffing agency especially because you can work as much or as little as you want (through LGC, that is).  

Offers resume and interview tips  

When you work with a staffing firm, the recruiters main goal is to find you a job. They are experts in creating resumes and the entire interview process. Staffing agencies will take the time to learn about your career goals and how to set you up for success. They’ll review your resume and give you advice on what to add or items to take away. Most staffing agencies, like LGC, conduct the interview. Because you’ve already interacted with the team of recruiters, it will make the interview process more comfortable for you.  

Provides schedule flexibility  

One of the best things about working with a staffing firm is the flexibility you have. You can find temporary jobs, permanent jobs, and part-time or full-time opportunities. For example, LGC has an app called LGC Now that secures a job for you based on your schedule. You’re able to sign up for a job that lasts a day to a job that lasts a month. (Download the LGC Now app in the app store.)
