When used effectively and to their fullest extent, staffing agencies can be an invaluable tool when comes it to locating work, ensuring you are prepared for the job market and making your presence known within an industry. You need to open up all lines of communication between you and the agency.
Make sure to be specific regarding your desired employment. Don’t be afraid to state your expectations, requirements and even your future intentions. Make sure your recruiter is clear on your chosen industry, the type of roles you are targeting and your desired compensation. Not only will this help to ensure that you are placed in a job that meets your needs, but it can save a lot of time and hassle on behalf of you and the staffing agency.
Apart from discussing what you do want, some candidates find it helpful to discuss what they absolutely do not want, as well. While this is not required by any means, it can be an incredibly useful strategy when trying to land a specific job within your chosen area of expertise.
Show Up On Time
The importance of communicating with your staffing agency cannot be stressed enough. With that in mind, it’s critical that you show up on time for any appointments, meetings or interviews. Apart from showing common professional courtesy, it also serves to emphasize your own sense of discipline, motivation and dependability.
Discuss Your Availability
It’s also important to discuss your day-to-day availability with the staffing agency. While this isn’t such a big issue for those who maintain open schedules, those candidates who have prior responsibilities might need to make special arrangements with their recruiter. The most typical and common arrangements can almost always be accommodated, and we’ll do our best to work with you in every scenario.
Furthermore, it’s important to notify your recruiter of any sudden changes in your career status. Applicants who land employment, whether through the staffing agency or otherwise, should notify their recruiter immediately.
