Depending on your specialized training and your industry or trade, the job market can be a cut-throat place. If you have polished your cover letter and credentials, have been applying online and in person for jobs in your field and are hearing crickets, you may want to enlist the help of a staffing company to help you land your next job.

Many people think that a staffing agency works to place people in temporary projects, short-term gigs or contract-based jobs in the local area. While many of the jobs that are available for placement at a staffing agency are short-term or contract-based work, the vast majority of jobs listed with a staffing company are looking for long-term or temp-to-hire workers. A recruitment agency is trained to give assessments and interviews to place potential employees with a company that matches their qualifications and job requirements.

It is a win-win for all parties involved. If you are looking for a good job, a placement agency takes the guesswork and hassle out of trying to find, and get hired by, a good company. The hiring company entrusts the experienced agents of the placement agency to find qualified candidates to fill their empty positions. The temp agency acts as the middleman by placing and paying the employee for a short time. The staffing agency then receives a large placement fee by the hiring companies once a potential employee is successfully placed.

After a short probationary period, typically 90 days, a temporary employee can often transition into being hired on by the company as a part-time or full-time employee. There are an abundance of qualified staffing companies in Boston MA that you can turn to to help you on your quest to find the perfect job that matches your qualifications and skills. An interview with a placement agency is very similar to one you would have at a physical company. The temp agency will want to review your credentials, ask you what type of hours and pay range you are expecting and have you perform a typing and skills-based test to determine the company that will be the best match for your unique qualifications, work ethic, availability, desired pay and personality.
