Recruiting for a position that needs exceptional skills can take months. Advertising in different channels, searching through thousands of resumes, interacting with prospects, screening them, setting up interviews and finally facilitating the negotiation for an executed offer letter may sound like a lot of work for the hiring manager or an HR department of a company.
A recruiting decision is a make or break decision. If you don’t match the right job with the right person, the company will soon have a draining hole in its money bag. Staffing agencies have the expertise and specialized knowledge needed to get this crucial decision right. In contrast to an in-house recruitment team, recruiting agencies tend to come in contact with more number of people from a wide range of industries and easily pick up on the trends and changes in the job market.
Staffing agencies are always recruiting so they must have a ready database of candidates they have screened and assessed. So when a new requirement is given to them, they can tap into this wide network they have already built to find a suitable candidate more easily.
The staffing company has a wide circle of clients and more number of jobs that they are working to fill. They also recruit for different industries and different kinds of jobs ranging from very short-term to permanent positions. So the candidate has a wider choice of positions he or she can apply for.
The candidate can apply for several jobs in a single application with the agency. This saves time and effort in filling multiple forms and attending multiple screening tests. What is more appealing is that this valuable assistance that the candidate gets mostly comes free of cost.
