Working with recruitment agencies or Temp Agencies in NYC, LA or ATL can benefit businesses and job seekers in so many ways. When candidates and firms are searching for great and quality recruitment agencies or temp agencies they should look for some things that are important to a successful relationship. They are:
My ‘Two Cents’ for the Candidates
Probable Job Placement
Even though different groups of people, like students, stay at home moms, etc. from different cities like NYC, LA or ATL enjoy moving from job to job, a lot of them actually desire to be employed on a permanent basis. Fortunately, recruitment or temp agencies are also able to place temporary employees in big firms doing entry level. It is highly probable that a temp will be given the option to move on as a full time employee. Make certain that the recruitment or temp agency you work for takes on offers or requests for temp to hire contracts especially when aiming for it. This is mainly because some recruitment or temp agencies just limit their exposure to freelance contracting.
Remuneration or Salary
It is not advisable to settle for something less than what you are worth simply because you are dealing with a temp agency or recruitment agency. A temp or recruitment agency must make certain that you get paid commensurate to your experience. Significant exceptions apply to this rule however. Take the case of a potential temp to perm position wherein you will end up with more money the moment you are hired on a full time basis could be worth your time. This is something to take seriously especially when you work for a highly esteemed and leading organization.
Give importance to your career goals and needs
A temp agency ends up making more when a temp is bumped up to a permanent position by a company. This becomes a significant incentive to the temp agency to “sell you” to whoever is most interested. You will know who is really motivated by the offer that is put on the table. On the other hand, a lot of people choose to deal with temp or recruiting agencies for the very reason that they want to find a job they will enjoy. Agencies, whether temp, recruiting, staffing, etc. should also take this into consideration and not just limit their focus on their bottom line. In short, their job is not only to get the candidate hired but to also listen more intently to the type of job that he or she wishes to find and place him or her accordingly.
My ‘Two Cents’ for the Clients
Experience and Reputable
Majority of business managers as well as owners are fully aware that experience and reputation is paramount for an organization to succeed. When searching for a human resource, recruitment, staffing or temp agency, a business manager or human resource staff should consider the reputation of the firm or entity. Have they submitted any references for verification? How long has the company, firm or entity been in operation? What is the size of the company, firm or entity and what is their success rate in placing a candidate? Posing these indispensible queries will separate the newbie from the seasoned, the inexperienced from the competent recruitment, staffing or temp agency.
The distinguishing mark of any service is the quality of the rendered service. In the field of human resource recruitment, this refers to the ‘caliber’ of the candidates that the firm or entity has to offer. Should you have specific preferences, the people that will be sent your way must be qualified, have the skill set and have the ability to fulfill the assigned tasks or function with little or no supervision at all. This is one of the primary reasons for engaging a recruitment or temp agency – that is to eliminate the trial and error process which can be expensive to the client.
It does not matter if you are a mom and pop operation or a conglomerate, all businesses give much consideration to the cost of a rendered service. The return on the services that you get should be more than what you invest in the first place. In short, you should be able to make a profit from your business operation otherwise you will end up in the hole.
A temp agency flourishes because they are able provide reliable employees to clients that were pressed for excellent services. If a temp agency can keep this up, they can look forward to a lasting and profitable existence in NYC for all intents and purposes.
