Finding the Perfect Career (With the Help of an Employment Firm)

Posted

Entering the job market and trying to find the perfect career to match your personality can be a daunting task.  From filling out questionnaires about your strengths and weaknesses to spending hours researching a wide variety of professions, you spend countless hours discovering the career that’s right for you.  Looking for work can feel very isolating, but you don’t have to do it alone.  By working with an employment firm, you can speed up your approach to landing your perfect career while having someone at your side through the entire process.  Here are just a few of the ways an employment firm can help you.

Career Consulting

If you are new to the job market and are not sure what type of career you want, speaking with an employment firm is a great place to start.  Recruiters can serve as career coaches, asking questions to help identify what kind of work is right for your talents and interests. What did you want to be when you were younger and where do you see yourself in 5 years? What life events have made you who you are today?  Knowing all of these questions will help a recruiter hone in on an ideal career. Staffing agencies may also help rework your resume to fit the jobs you are applying for, making it easier to apply to multiple positions.

Interview Prep

One of the greatest advantages of working with employment firms is that they often spend time teaching you how to market your qualities and skills.  In many cases, they will pose common interview questions and help prepare answers. Recruiters want you to feel more confident when you walk into the interview.  They have a stake in your success and want you to do well. Your performance in an interview is a reflection of how well they are doing their job.

Interview Debrief

Not only do employment firms help prepare for interviews, most request that you report back immediately after the interview to do an effective debrief.  Recruiters want to know your thoughts about the interview and any agreed upon next steps before they touch base with the client.  If anything questionable comes up during the interview, you can bring those concerns to the attention of the recruiter and they will discuss them with the client.

Access to the Hidden Job Market

Many jobs advertised through employment firms or staffing agencies are not available anywhere else.  Organizations hire agencies to recruit top talent rather than making their opening available to the general public.   Contact local employment firms to reach top employers that might otherwise be hidden in your job search.

Trusted Professionals to Rely On

Employees of staffing firms are trained to find jobs that are the best fit for both the candidate and employer.  They want a perfect match. You can trust that your recruiter has your best interests in mind and will search for a placement that best suits your skill set, personality, and career goals.
