There are three types of job seekers who should be using a staffing company right now. Those job seekers are the career changers, recent grads, and people who have been laid off.


Here's why using a staffing agency is especially beneficial for them, more than the typical job seeker...

A Staffing Agency Can Get You A Job WITHOUT The Extra Steps

@j.t.odonnell 3 Types Of Job Seekers Should Be Using A Staffing Company RIGHT NOW! #sponsoredad#adsponsor#Edutok#jobtok#jobsearch#jobs#jobsite#jobtips#jobsearchtips#jobseeker#jobsearchhelp#expressjobs#expresspros#expressjobsapp#expressprosapp♬ original sound - J.T. O'Donnell

As a 20-year career coaching veteran and former staffing industry executive, I can tell you that the secret sauce of working with a staffing agency is that they can get you placed without having to do the extra steps of convincing a company to hire you. They simply put you on assignment.

So, why does that matter?

Well, if you're a career changer, it can be hard to explain why you're making the pivot. Or if you're a recent grad, it can be hard to explain why you don't have any experience. Or if you've been laid off, it can be really hard to explain why you were let go.

For career changers, recent grads, and laid-off professionals, working with a staffing agency can help you get redeployed. And it's always easier to get a job when you have a job.

Working With A Staffing Agency (Like ExpressJobs!) Is Easy

Another great benefit of working with a staffing agency is that it's really easy. All you have to do is download an app like the ExpressJobs app to get started.

After you download the ExpressJobs app, the first thing it'll do is show you all the jobs in your area within a 50-mile radius. Then it lets you refine the search by distance, job title, relevance, etc., allowing you to filter the jobs so you're only seeing the ones you would want to take. Once you filter the jobs, you're then able to select specific jobs and take a closer look—and even send a message to get more information.

Everything you need to work with a staffing agency is in one FREE app!

Honestly, anybody who is struggling to get hired and feels like something is holding them back can really benefit from working with a staffing agency. But in particular, I've found career changers, recent grads, and lay-off victims benefit the most from using staffing agencies, so go check out the ExpressJobs app. It's super easy to use and could really help you land your next job.

Woman talks to her boss about resetting work expectations

In my last article, I talked about an example of someone who was working 60 hours a week and then went through a big life event (like having a baby) and now only wants to work 40 hours a week. If you're in the same boat, how can you reset work expectations with your boss and still get a good performance review?

How do you know if you understand something?

I am a non-technical person working in an IT company. My colleagues will often tell me something technical. Sometimes I understand what they are saying. Sometimes I have no idea what they are talking about. Sometimes I think I understand what they are telling me when they are telling me, but then later I realize that I don’t understand it at all.
