What workers might not know about the recruiting industry might surprise them, according to Randstad North America, an international provider of human resources services consciously focused on human interaction at the vanguard of technology.
Five factors that can positively impact the job searcher’s experience, as identified by Randstad, include the advantages of gaining access to “hidden” jobs not advertised on the public market; and working with a system to which a majority of employers are now using. Additionally, developing a relationship with a recruiter can be a personally beneficial resource as job seekers can let staffing agents streamline one’s search and provide advice.
Quelling a common misperception, Randstad pointed out staffing agencies do not cater exclusively to “temp” jobs; rather, they are entrusted with both permanent and temporary-to-hire positions across diverse industries. In fact, entering a firm via a temporary position provides an opportunity to prove one’s worth. Finally, professional recruiting help is free.
The company added that staffing and recruiting professionals now combine state-of-the-art technology with traditional techniques to enhance job hunters’ experience and provide the best match between workers and companies.
“We know how important a job is in a candidate's life, and are passionate about helping people reach their true potential," Jim Link, Randstad's chief HR officer, said. "As a trusted human partner in today's technology-driven world, we provide guidance and expertise to candidates and ensure they are recognized as individuals, not just another resume."
