 Employment Agencies 

 

SPOTLIGHT

What is an employment agency/staffing firm? 

  • Companies paid to recruit and screen candidates for positions that are not advertised.
  • Companies filling temporary positions that may become permanent employment.

Why should I use one? 

  • Approximately 75% of jobs are not advertised; this is an excellent way to gain access to a hidden job market.
  • Many large companies use these positions to screen employees for permanent full time work.
  • Saves time since agencies know what positions are available with multiple employers.

What should I ask when contacting an employment agency/staffing firm? 

  • Does your firm handle opportunities for someone with my skills and interest?
  • Who pays the fees involved if a job is offered or accepted?
  • Note:Candidates seeking entry level positions should NEVER pay fees. Make certain that the employer will be responsible for paying any fees associated with the search.
