Staffing Agency vs. Career Site: 3 Myths Debunked

April 1st, 2014

As a staffing agency, we understand what it’s like to be frustrated when it comes to applying for jobs. The continuous cycle of selling yourself on different career sites and hardly ever hearing back is not an encouraging process. Unfortunately, many people give in to the popular myths about working with a staffing agency and shy away from help, leading them to a career site that doesn’t quite deliver. Here are three of the most popular myths about staffing solutions, followed by the proper debunking of such tales.

Are you using the right resources to find a job?

Are you using the right resources to find a job?

Myth #1: A staffing agency does not provide “real” jobs. 

Here at Josephine’s Professional Staffing, we provide opportunities in many different fields including administrative, accounting/finance, engineering and more.

These are not all temporary jobs either. Our clients have developed budgets which allow for a certain number of full-time employees per year, and we get you into their field of vision. If you begin working for them on a temporary basis and a new job opens up, you are in prime position to snag it.

Myth #2: A staffing agency only provides low-paying jobs. 

Actually, it’s the complete opposite! If you have experience, are educated and have the attitude and personality that a client is looking for, you will be offered a job that compliments your caliber of work. It is more common in a career site to find only entry-level jobs or positions that are way outside of your experience, leaving you frustrated and discouraged.

Myth #3: A staffing agency is only looking for entry-level candidates. 

So many companies are now looking to staffing agencies to bring them high-level candidates who are experienced and specialized in a field. If you are looking to get your foot in the door at a high-end company, using a staffing agency (and not a career site) will put you in prime position to be hired.

It is possible to obtain the dream job you’ve been looking for, and it’s a much faster (and straighter) path with the help of a staffing agency instead of a career site. We would love to help you get started on your journey!
