Staffing businesses provide millions of Americans with full-time, temporary and contract work each year, according to data from the American Staffing Association.

For people looking for a new job, teaming up with a staffing company, or recruiter, is a smart option for many reasons.

Some people mistakenly think that staffing agencies only offer short-term, temporary work. Although some agencies offer only temporary employment, most agencies’ offer part-time, full-time, contract and temp-to-hire opportunities.

Recruiters act as a bridge between people looking for work and employers with open positions. From the point of view of the employer, staffing agencies save time and energy. For job seekers, these companies are a knowledgeable partner in a job search.

When you work with a recruiter, they will strive to comprehend your abilities, experience and character to connect you with potential jobs. Furthermore, they offer application and career support to position you for success in both the short and long term.

When you apply to a job through a staffing company, you’re not just an application, you’re a qualified applicant from a trusted source. Agencies provide high-quality candidates to employers by reviewing candidates’ abilities and experiences, and then matching candidates to best-fit job openings.

Every now and then, there may not be a position that fits a particular candidate, or perhaps the company chooses to go with an applicant not provided by the recruiter. When this happens, the recruiter continues to search for jobs that fit the candidate, keeping in touch and making contact when new opportunities come up.

Working With a Specialized Supply Chain Recruiter

If you are thinking about using a staffing company in your search for a new supply chain job, there are two kinds of companies: standard recruiters and specialized firms. While there are numerous advantages to collaborating with generalist staffing companies, collaborating with a supply chain staffing company includes its own benefits.

One of the best aspects of collaborating with a niche company is you don’t have to spend a great deal of time outlining what you do and need. The supply chain staffing company is already firmly in this niche and knows what you need. They deal exclusively in the supply chain industry every day and are suited to deal with industry-specific challenges.

Rather than going with a firm that has a partial understanding of the supply chain industry, it’s often simpler to go with a niche company that already has a solid a grasp of the concepts and patterns of an industry.

Also, working with a supply chain recruiter is more of a long-term strategy than working with a generalist agency. A specialized firm is better positioned to provide opportunity after opportunity within the industry.
