So, you’ve been on the hunt for a new job for quite some time and you’ve finally decided to seek the help of a staffing agency, such as AtWork. The expert recruiters at AtWork’s nearly 100 locations nationwide are certainly a good partner to have in your search, but what exactly do they do, and how does that translate into placing you into the new job you’re looking for?

A recruiter works to enlist or enroll people as employees in another organization, either on a temporary or permanent basis. Essentially, they act as a liaison between job seekers and hiring managers, working to match the right talent with the right positions. It’s important to note that, though their services benefit both job seekers and employers, recruiters are not direct employees of either, and they are seldom in charge of the final hiring decisions.  

That said, recruiters share the same goals as both job seekers and employers: To place qualified candidates into jobs that are a good match for their skillsets, easing the hiring process for the employer. They do this by:

  • Offering access to valuable job search resources such as skills testing and interview and resume tips in order to ensure that you are both qualified for the type of work you’re seeking, and that you are as ready as possible for the interview process.
  • Marketing your talents to a number of local employers on your behalf, reducing the effort and stress of searching and applying for jobs independently.
  • Finding and connecting you to job prospects, helping schedule the interview, and following up with both yourself and the potential employer afterwards, to ensure that all went well and to keep the hiring process moving forward. Additionally, recruiters are well connected within their communities and are often aware of positions that have not yet been advertised or are being filled exclusively through their agency.

It’s easy to see that enlisting the help of a professional recruiter via a leading staffing agency, such as AtWork, can ease the job search process. If you’re ready to get started click HERE to find the AtWork location nearest to you today!
