Three Tips for Successfully Working With a Temporary Staffing Company

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 158

Temporary Staffing is a great way to find a new job, transition a career, or be able to work a flexible schedule. Many people find that their experience with a temporary staffing company is not what they were expecting, but there are ways to improve your chances of getting an assignment. These three tips for working with a temporary staffing company will help make your experience more pleasant.

1) Make sure you maintain a positive and professional attitude. Make sure your resume is clean and concise showcasing your best experience. Make sure you are using a professional sounding email address. When the recruiter asks why you left your last position, leave any negative feelings out of your answer. Also, the more flexible you are in regards to length of assignments or the hourly pay rate, the more possible opportunities you will be offered.

2) Even if you are unemployed, make sure you are continuing to keep busy. When your recruiter asks you what you have been doing most recently do not answer with "Looking for a job." The recruiter at the staffing company is your representative and advocate, but they can't lie about your experience. The first question a client is going to ask about a candidate is what have they been doing most recently. If you haven't been working spend some of your time volunteering or doing freelance work or any number of other engaging things that will give you and your recruiter something to talk about. And put this information on your resume.

3) Don't expect a job immediately. Temporary staffing companies don't create the jobs, they receive jobs from their clients and each individual position requires different skills based on the client's requirements. A temporary staffing company is unable to guarantee a position for each applicant. The company will likely instruct you to contact them once or twice a week to let them know you are still available, so make sure you are maintaining positive contact even if they don't have anything available when you call. Once a position becomes available that matches your background and skill set, the temporary staffing company will be sure to contact you.

If you make sure you keep a professional attitude, continuously improve your experience by keeping busy, even if unemployed, and understand that the staffing company can't promise employment for every applicant then your partnership with a temporary staffing company can prove to be a great relationship.
