If you’ve ever been unemployed and had to search for a new job, you know that the search for a new job is a job in itself. To maximize your time and resources and find a new job as quickly as possible, you could really use some help. After admitting you need help finding a job, you need to know where to get that help and how to apply it in the most useful way. The best way to do this is to get help is from employment agencies. Employment agencies possess many different tittles, but they all have the same goal – to get you a job. Some people are afraid to use employment agencies because they think they are getting scammed somehow. The truth is you don’t have to worry about getting “ripped off” by these companies because they don’t make money until you do. Once the agency finds you a job they get a percentage of what your income will be so they will be working their hardest to find you a job with the highest paying income possible.
Employment agencies can also go by Staffing Agencies, Staffing Companies, Personnel Agencies, Temporary Employment Agencies, Recruiters, Recruiter Agencies, Employment Placement Agencies, etc. Remember: although some employment agencies title themselves as “Temporary Employment” they also have full time jobs that they need to fill, so don’t rule out agencies that use this term. Some companies are going to start you off in a temporary job and move you forward as they see how reliable you are (this is also known as TEMP – TO – PERM), so don’t blow off a job just because they offer you a job that starts out as “temporary”
Just one agency typically has 4-5 people assisting you in finding work. Every day, this group of people calls their clients telling them what an astounding employee you will be and tells them about all the skills you have to offer for their company. If the company is interested, then your agency sets up a face-to-face interview for you. At this point, it’s your turn to make sure you impress the employer and don’t make a liar out of the agency. You can see how much one agency can assist you in finding a job, so, you need as many agencies as possible helping you. The more people there are assisting you, the faster you can find the job you want.
Now the ball is in your court. Every day, you need to send out a 100 resumes a day to 100 employment agencies. Can’t find that many employment agencies? Start with the local yellow pages and find every employment agency you can. This includes agencies from any place offering any type of work. Even if it’s in a different industry or out of your preferred area, the agency may like what they see and recommend you to other agencies or companies.
By the end of the week, you can have 2,000+ people working just to find you work. If you don’t have a job by then, it is just like washing your hair – you have to repeat. Send out 100 resumes to 100 employment agencies a day until you have a job. Keep sending your resume out until an agency or company says there interested or simply says “STOP SENDING US YOUR RESUME”. No matter what, keep sending out your resume until you get a response. Persistence and perseverance is the key.
