We all know that using multiple job search tactics significantly increases your chances of finding a job. One purpose of a staffing company is to be an awesome resource in addition to the traditional job search.
Using a staffing company can be a new and exciting experience. But there are some inaccurate misconceptions out there in regards to staffing companies! We want to set the record straight and set realistic expectations for working with one! Here are three common misconceptions job seekers have about using a staffing company:
Not true: Most staffing companies hire for a variety of jobs – not just temporary positions.
In addition to temporary jobs, we also offer “Contract-to-hire” assignments, meaning that you have the opportunity to be hired by your worksite employer after going through a trial period. If your worksite employer feels like you are a great fit for the organization, they can opt to hire you directly!
We also offer “Direct Placement” assignments, which is when we assist employers with recruiting and screening for candidates to be directly placed in their organization (no trial period needed). Direct Placement is generally used when employers need help finding candidates for leadership or high-level positions.
Not True: Although hiring managers do care about experience, finding an employee who is a great cultural fit is also a huge factor. Some examples of requirements on a job description that would be considered less flexible would be certain certifications (think RN or other healthcare qualifications), or if a company is looking for an experienced leader (they may want a background that shows proven leadership skills).Don’t let what you think is a lack of experience discourage you from going after the position. If the position sounds like something you would be good at, and you meet 75% of the requirements, let us help you go for it! As we said before, the hiring manager may care more about the cultural fit, and be willing to train you on the other 25% of the experience that you are missing.
Not True: A staffing agency is not the same as a “head-hunting” service. We keep a database of candidates with a broad range of experience and skill levels in order to fill a variety of jobs. The goal is to make a perfect match for both the client and the candidate. However, we cannot guarantee employment. We do not schedule an appointment until we feel confident your skill set is a great fit, so we are not wasting their time or yours. We are not in the business of giving false hope!
We will give nothing but our best effort, but nothing is ever guaranteed. You have nothing to lose but tons to gain by letting us help in the job search!

Looking for a job can be very stressful and time consuming. Going to a job interview can be a nerve-racking process, even to the most confident person.
Meeting with job seekers on a daily basis, we are incredibly surprised to see how many people have not considered specific aspects of their daily life that would be beneficial in their job search. When looking for employment or looking to change your career path, there are specific steps that can be taken to assist with landing your dream job.
Start with a self-assessment. The outcome of this assessment will help you better understand and nail down your interests, strengths, skill set and what specific needs you are trying to meet.
Take time to understand what you are genuinely interested in or passionate about. For example, if you are passionate about helping senior citizens or giving back to the community, it would be a great idea to look into non-profit organizations. Start to research companies in your area that are active in their local communities and giving back. If you enjoy being active and working with your hands, research warehouse and assembly positions in your community, which will allow you to be hands-on.
Don’t Forget! It is also important to understand what your weaknesses and dislikes are. Every person has areas in life that need improvement and we all have things we do not like or enjoy. Understanding and being aware of these areas can help you in your career.
Before stepping foot in an interview, research the company you are applying to work. Read and fully understand all aspects of the job description. Make sure that after the interview is scheduled, you have taken the research the company and its reputation. This can be done on company website and social media pages. Read company reviews. (There are numerous websites out there to assist with this research, such as Glassdoor.com) This is especially important when you are applying to a company you are not familiar with.
As with any research, be sure you use more than one source or website. The company’s social media pages will help you learn more about the work culture and work environment. Most companies post fun company pictures and community events to their social media sites. It is also a good idea to do a little research on the job title or industry if you are new to the field.
Practice, practice, and practice! Do not skip this step!! This will build confidence and work out any kinks you might have or be feeling. I have found it is more beneficial to do a real practice interview with a family member or a trusted friend. Limit the practice to just you and the other person so you are more relaxed and focused. Make sure you ask them to have some questions prepared for the practice interview. Once the two of you are finished, ask for feedback on your performance. This will give you a good idea of how the interview went and what kind of questions you need to work on. Also ask for constructive feedback about your facial expressions, body language and anything else they noticed that a professional interviewer or hiring manager could view as negative. Practice, Practice, Practice!
Recent articles mention skilled worker shortages and call attention to the continuing pressures on employers. Established workforce management methods don’t seem to keep up with rising demand and competition for truly valued skills.
Our U.S. economy has created new jobs annually since 2009. Even so, there are increasing worker shortages. The need for cost control and efficiency will be part of effective recruitment and contingent staffing strategies. Factors including quality of candidates and workforce retention may combine to make firms increase future wages more quickly.
Flexicrew continuously studies market trends. So, we have broad familiarity with worker shortages. We see that firms who overcome talent and worker shortages deliberately use four successful staffing strategies.
At the same time, employers need a thorough grasp of the forces driving future workforce changes. That will help guide operations and HR managers stay aware of dynamics shaping talent management and staffing strategies where worker shortages exist.
At Flexicrew we understand your continuing pressure to produce results even with severe worker shortages.
Also, we understand the requirement for strategic, flexible workforce management approaches. That lets us help employers quickly and effectively obtain contingent and permanent workers.
Call us if you sometimes have trouble finding enough skilled employees.
Hiring organizations have no legal obligation to develop, maintain or periodically revise job descriptions. By the same token, there are multiple advantages and legal upsides that make that practice useful.
They are especially useful if they are carefully written, maintained and used.
They describe the key elements, specifications and functions of every job for employers. Formal job descriptions are the basis for setting expectations for positions. They reflect the skills and experience job candidates must have. They are also useful as a basis for performance appraisals.
Likewise, they provide benefits to other teams or individuals who interface with a certain position to know what to expect from that function.
Then, let’s define some important parts. For instance:
In other words, job descriptions are key details of every job, for every firm. We described how good ones perform many central functions. We also outlined how to write clear, concise and accurate job descriptions that define defined roles.
Also, have new-hires sign employment contracts. They should state that they have received their job specs, reviewed them, and agree what’s assumed in their role. This can better protect and inform both employer and employee.
