Top 6 Reasons Companies Should Use Staffing Agencies, Temp Agencies and Executive Search Firms

Continue Reading

staffingagenciestempagenciesexecutivesearchfirmsHere are the top 6 reasons companies should use staffing agencies, temp agencies and executive search firms:

1. They recruit from both the active and passive talent marketplace. This helps increase the quality of new hires. Passive candidates represent the 85% of people who are currently employed and successful in their jobs and are not actively seeking new jobs. The advantage of using staffing agencies is they can call into a client’s competitors to find talent and bring forth the best candidates. This is one of the main reasons many companies choose to pay recruiting fees.

2. Recruiting agencies have large databases of candidates to find top talent fast. Since they’re interacting with candidates all the time, their database of resumes becomes their go-to recruiting tool. The benefit of this database is they can find the proper candidates in a shorter time period than posting on job boards and waiting for the right people to apply.

3. Staffing agencies offer guarantees. If the candidate leaves the job within 90 days, then staffing agencies will replace the candidate with another suitable one. Staffing agencies also know how to find candidates that are the right fit, both in terms of skills and culture, so their chances of having a candidate leave a new position is typically very low.

4. Staffing agencies are compensated based on their performance and placements, not activity. Internal HR employees are usually paid a base salary with small bonuses paid on performance. Many recruiters are paid strictly on commission, so recruiters have the incentive to go the extra mile to find the top people and are also incentivized to ensure these candidates stay with client.

5. Improved productivity. HR employees have their hands filled with finding candidates, setting up interviews, payroll, benefits and many administrative duties. Recruiting agencies can free-up their time by taking on the workload of qualifying and vetting candidates. This is especially true when targeting passive candidates, because these candidates are working full-time and finding a way to get in contact with them is a highly-refined skill that recruiters can do more efficiently than a company’s internal HR team. Even with the additional cost of contingency fees, the time saved by using a recruiting agency may be worth more than the company having done it themselves.

6. Increased flexibility. If a company is opening new divisions and growing rapidly, it can add more staff quickly by using a staffing agency. If they relied on an internal HR team, they would have to hire additional HR professionals first and then wait for them to find the new employees. This entire process could take up to several months. By using a recruiting agency, if a company needs to scale up or down they can do so easily without having the overhead of an entire HR team.

American Recruiting & Consulting Group, a national staffing agency, temp agency and executive search firm, was established in 1982 and has been consistently ranked in multiple issues of The Business Journals’ “Top 25 Executive Search and Consulting Firms” for the last 14 years. Here are tips on how to be an ideal employee from a staffing agency perspective.

1. Positive Attitude. The positive energy of an employee can affect the entire team. Everybody likes working with positive people. Nobody wants to be around somebody talks negative about everything and brings down other people’s ideas. Staffing agencies and companies are always looking for signs of this when they’re interviewing.

2. Ambitious. Ambitious employees go the extra mile to help the company achieve its goals. This is triggered by their goals to move up the corporate ladder. Some people wait to be told what to do while ambitious employees are constantly find new things to keep them busy and perform. An ambitious employee may even recommend new projects and is always looking for opportunities to do more, not less.

3. Eager-Learner. Eager learners will always try to improve themselves. They will ask questions and try to learn as much about the company as possible so they can find places where they can add value. This includes learning about other aspects of the company besides their direct job so they can find other ways to help the company.

4. Reliable. The ideal employee is punctual and honest. Without honesty and trust there is no teamwork. Co-workers have to be able to depend on each other to do their pieces of the project. The best employees can get the job completed without hand-holding or having to be told what to do.

5. Action-Oriented. These employees will take chances to bring the company forward. They focus on ideas that can actually be accomplished and although some chances may lead to failure, their constant push towards action will help drive the company.

6. Presentable to Clients. The ideal employees are well put-together and the employer can feel comfortable introducing them to their clients. Even if the job isn’t client-facing, being presentable is always important. Sometimes a client may visit the office or the employer might bring the entire team to a convention. It’s important that the employer feels comfortable introducing you to other people. When you’re on the job search, this includes temp agencies and employment agencies when they’re deciding to introduce you to a client.

7. Self-Managed. Someone who can get tasks accomplished according to schedule and doesn’t require their employer checking in on their work is always valuable. Self-managed and self-motivated employees develop a schedule for themselves and don’t procrastinate in their work. The employer has enough tasks on his hands and doesn’t have the extra time to make sure each employee is accomplishing their tasks according to schedule.

8. Attentive Listener. Not everybody has the best memory, but an employee can make up for this by taking diligent notes. The mistakes of not listening attentively can cause deadlines to be missed and slow up the entire team.

9. Team Player. Most company successes include the contributions of multiple people. Employees who can work with a team and can adapt to the company culture are always important to an organization. Recruitment firms and companies are always looking for signs of being a team player when they’re considering hiring you.

6 Ways to Have a More Successful Career

Follow these 6 tips if you want to enjoy more success in your career and get ahead.

1. Constantly improve yourself. You can take classes outside of work to hone your skills. Look for opportunities where you can get additional education and training. Work on outside projects. Attend conferences and seminars. Join online groups and forums. If there are licenses and certifications in your industry, you can get those. The more skills you have, the more valuable you’ll be to any company you work for.
 
2. Focus on your strengths. Use them as a natural advantage to experience success more easily. Many people play to their weaknesses and try to improve on those. That’s important, but improving on your strengths will boost your career faster and provide more value to your employer.
 
3. Team up with other people when you’re working on projects. Typically, more is achieved as a team than alone. Other people with complementary skillsets can add tremendous value and create a synergistic effect.
 
4. Pursue work that’s interesting to you. You’ll devote more energy to projects you genuinely enjoy doing which in turn will usually make it more successful. You’ll go the extra mile when you’re engaged in a project. The additional benefit is you’ll feel happier and more satisfied during the day, making your all-around quality of life better.
 
5. Surround yourself with people who have similar goals. Seeing other people’s progress will motivate you to continue to accomplish great things. If you hang around people who are complacent, you might end up the same way. People get comfortable where they are and stop trying to advance in their career. If you want to have a more successful career, hang around people with similar goals as well as people who’ve already accomplished what you want to accomplish.
 
6. Focus on solutions. Bring ideas and new ways of doing things to the company. Go above and beyond in your job. If you want to get ahead, you need to find ways to contribute to the company. Sometimes that means doing work that is outside your official role but will benefit the company. The result is you’ll be given more projects and possibly promoted. Accept challenges that go beyond your comfort zone and try new things. If you always stick with the status quo, you’ll have a hard time getting ahead in your career.

Follow these tips to maximize your career potential. If you improve on these everyday, you’ll be on your way to accomplishing great things.

The Digital Job Search

Continue Reading

Applying for jobs in the digital age involves more than just updating your resume. Your entire digital footprint: your social media profiles, LinkedIn account and public displays of work are all becoming part of your digital portfolio. When deciding to call you in for an interview, employers and recruitment firms are doing more than just reading your resume. Searching the web and Googling your name are all part of the process as they attempt to piece together a complete profile of you. This procedure begins when first applying for any job. Even if you’re talking to recruitment firms, they will evaluate your digital footprint when deciding whether to present you to their client. That’s why it’s important you look your best in the digital age using our tips for preparing your digital resume.

Typically, the first thing employers or recruiting agencies do when receiving your resume is perform a Google search of your name. Before setting time aside to meet you in person, they want to make sure you’re a good fit, both skill-wise and culturally. Any social media profiles you have will usually appear in the top of your Google results. That’s why we recommend you look over your social media accounts and filter your public profile.

The next thing employers and recruiting agencies will do is look you up on LinkedIn. We recommend having a professional photo to emphasize you’re serious about the job. Your LinkedIn profile is essentially a shorter version of your resume. An additional advantage of using LinkedIn is many employers and recruiting agencies are searching for passive candidates, meaning people who are currently employed but are open to new job opportunities. Having a LinkedIn profile puts you in a position to be found by recruitment firms who are searching LinkedIn for people with skill sets just like yours.

Let your future employer see your previous work. The internet is the perfect place to display your accomplishments, successes and other examples of your work. This can give you a leg-up on the competition before you even come in to the interview. We recommend you post these examples on your social media and LinkedIn accounts to make it easy for your employer to find them. Hoping your future employer will search the 5th page of your Google results for this information is a longshot, so make it as easy as possible for them to see these. If you’ve built apps or websites, you can publish links to them. Employers value all types of publicly displayed work because it’s concrete proof of your skills.

Internet searches are fast becoming the new background checks. The difference is now they’re starting before the interview instead of after. Prepare yourself for your job search by organizing your digital portfolio and using it as an advantage over your competition.
