Working With The Right Staffing Firm Can Help Your Job Search
September 20, 2013
Since the last recession there has been a shift in how many businesses find people to hire. Recessions cause everyone to examine every dollar they spend and cut any costs they can. By “outsourcing” non-essential functions that don’t happen every day, fixed costs can be lowered. Easy examples would be hiring a CPA firm to prepare taxes or a snow plow service to plow the parking lot.
Many businesses have outsourced finding their people. This doesn’t mean that they don’t care about the people they hire. They are still just as important as they ever were! They just recognize that they don’t need the fixed overhead of people on their staff who are qualified to find good people. In addition, using professionals who do it every day can result in a better fit for the business and the applicant.
So, what’s in it for you – the applicant?
First of all, understand that the business pays the fees of the staffing firm. You should never be charged for those services. Some of the additional benefits are:
Fettig has as many as 40 to 50 open orders where we are looking for good people to fill those jobs right now. When you interview with us, it is just like interviewing with 40 different companies in one interview! Think of the time saved! We really want to serve our customers and fill those positions as fast as we can with the best person possible. When you interview with us, we are thinking about all of our open orders to see where you fit the best.
We will coach you on your resume, your appearance, your interviewing skills, etc. That doesn’t happen when you interview directly with a company. There are a lot of things involved in preparing a good resume, how you present yourself in person, what questions you should ask in an interview, etc. All of this is at no cost to you!
Our Staffing Partners really care about you. Without you, we have no business. They understand that. Unfortunately, the industry can become hardened to people and not treat them very well. If you see any of the testimonials on our website you will see that we make it a practice to provide a nice atmosphere for our applicants. We make it as comfortable as possible and treat you with respect and a smile!
So, if you have had a bad experience with a “temp firm” in the past or heard about a friend who did, check us out! It will be a positive experience!
