3 Common Misconceptions About Staffing Firms
There’s a good chance you’ve heard a lot about staffing firms ─ much of which is probably both unappealing and untrue. If you’ve been hesitant to work with a recruiter, your uncertainty was likely caused by many popular misconceptions. Some of the top mistaken beliefs about staffing firms include:
- You can only get temporary jobs. This is very false. Most staffing firms offer a variety of job types, including temporary, temp-to-hire and direct hire. Tell your recruiter what type of position you’re looking for and they’ll help you find it.
- All jobs are for entry-level and administrative candidates. This couldn’t be farther from the case! Staffing firms can find positions for everyone from entry-level to executive candidates, in a wide-variety of industries. Some staffing firms offer general placements, while others are specific to certain types of candidates and industries.
- You’ll be pressured into taking a position you don’t want. If you choose to work with a reputable staffing firm, this will never be the case. Your recruiter will present you with a variety of job opportunities that may fit your needs and it’s up to you to decide if you’d like to apply for them. No one but you should ever choose the direction of your career.
