  • Choosing a staffing agency

This leads to this: Top Ten Questions to Ask a Staffing Agency

According to the American Staffing Association, every day, 2.9 million people are on assignment with staffing companies. Whether you want a temporary job or a full-time position, working with a staffing agency is a great career move.

Working with a Staffing Agency
To explore whether working with a staffing agency is the right choice for you, here are 7 questions to help you choose a prospective staffing agency:

Does the staffing agency specialize in my field?

Skilled Tradesmen, Administrative Professionals, Health Care Professionals, Engineering Professionals, etc. need to work with a staffing firm that specializes in the particular field they have experience in.

What is the recruiter's typical process for placing candidates?

An experienced recruiter knows the nuances and challenges involved with locating qualified candidates and matching them with the employer who best meets their needs and lifestyle. A good recruiter makes the job seeker the number one priority.

How are you treated during the initial contact?

Were you greeted politely on the phone? What was the atmosphere in the office when you visited? Make sure the staffing agency and its workers are pleasant to deal with and knowledgeable.

Does the staffing agency fully understand your needs?

Are you a parent who wants to work a flexible schedule? Maybe you are a recent college grad who wants to “try out” companies before committing to one, or an experienced office manager seeking your next full-time position. Make sure the staffing agency has the types of jobs that will meet your lifestyle.

How many openings does the staffing agency currently have for the position you seek?

Will you have choices? Does the staffing agency have ten jobs that match your skills, or just one?

Does the staffing agency have jobs where you want to be?

A local presence is critical. Local businesses know other business owners in the area. There’s a higher likelihood that the staffing agency will have a variety of jobs at both large corporations and smaller businesses, which means more options for you.

What are your responsibilities for a potential position?

If the staffing agency has positions for you, review the basic job duties and objectives with your staffing manager.

Interviewing Tips
Most interviewees follow the same format when interviewing. There are the occasional curve balls but below are five of the most popular interview questions you should be prepared for. Get ready!

Tell me about yourself?

This question often opens the interview. It is intended to allow the recruiter to assess how articulate you are, and also learn about where you want to go with your career. The most important thing to remember is to answer the question in a way that is of interest to the interviewer in terms of the position they are trying to fill. Highlighting your strengths and being able to answer with competence and confidence is the key.

How long have you been with your current or former employers?

Interviewers are especially interested in this question if your resume reflects short stints in jobs. Regardless of whether you were down sized or a company closed some still perceive stays shorter than 2-3 years as job hopping. Being positive, upbeat and acknowledging the perception is the best option in this case. Working to find a great company to stay with is the best resolution to this problem, and can only be resolved by implementing course corrections, bringing in new resources and in general, learning how to survive and becoming valued by prospective employers.

What is your greatest weakness?

Be honest, be confident, make the interviewer see that you have analyzed and taken responsibility for past weakness and mistakes. Be short and sweet with your answer and when possible use a weakness that is actually a positive, such as “I am a perfectionist!”. Expressing the positive from what you have learned from your weakness will earn the interviewers confidence.

Why did you leave your last position?

In any position the ability to play/work well with others is imperative. This question is used to tell the interviewer how well you interact with others and how well you will fit in with their company. The interviewer is also trying to extract signs that indicate personality problems and conflicts. Be honest, but do not dwell on any conflict that may have occurred. Focus on the positive developments that resulted from your departure, such as accepting a more challenging position or a healthy lesson that will help you be a better employee at your next job.

Why do you want to work in this industry?

The last thing you need to say in any job interview is “I just need a job!” Point out similarities between the job you are interviewing for and your current or prior job. Think about why and when you became interested in the type of position you are interviewing for and tell a short story of why it’s become a passion for you, and allude to it continually through the interview.
