What Are Some Things To Consider If You Enlist A Staffing Service?

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

What Are Some Things To Consider If You Enlist A Staffing Service?With news of the economy slowly rebounding, many economists are wondering where people are being hired to get a better understanding of where the economy may be going. Surprisingly, what some are finding out is that many of the jobs that are out are in the temporary market. In fact, temporary staffing has gone up more than fifty percent in the four years since the Great Recession, with seventeen million people total employed as temporary workers, contract workers, freelancers or consultants. And it appears that this trend isn’t going away any time soon.

Many companies are not as well off as they were pre-recession. They need the manpower, but the ability to hire a full-time worker just isn’t there yet. They may not be able to afford the benefits that come with full-time employment; nor may they be so trusting of the economy given the potential of other bubbles bursting and political gridlock in Washington. For these reasons, companies have embraced temporary and contract work.

However, you might not think it but some workers might prefer this system as well. If you are in school, for example, you might only need a job in the short-term. Temporary staffing agencies can help find these students work on their respites. In addition, many people, especially Millennial and other younger workers, may not want the commitment that comes with full-time employment. They may be looking to move on whenever they feel necessary, and temporary/contract work can provide the freedom they need in their endeavors.

Whatever the reasons for your desire to hire temporary workers, you’re going to need the help of a temporary staffing agency to ensure that you get the right people for the job. Unfortunately, a job search for the right candidate could take several months, costing you time and money that could be best spend elsewhere.

A temporary staffing service can help you find the right candidate, but how do you find the right agency? Here are some things to keep in mind: (more…)

How To Ace A Charity Job Interview

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Whether you’re applying for a job or inquiring about volunteering, there are some key principles to bear in mind when looking for a charity job. While you’ll need to have the right attitude and skills, naturally, but you’ll also need to show off some personal qualities unique to third sector employment.

How To Ace A Charity Job Interview

Proving Your Interest

Charity jobs can be very well paid at the top end of the spectrum. But often, entry level positions are not well paid at all. In fact, many charity workers had to cut their teeth doing volunteer work without a salary, and even charity interns may only be reimbursed for their costs.
Whatever the job, and whatever the salary, the charity will be looking for genuine interest and enthusiasm in the work they do. Naturally, all job applications require a certain amount of interest in the role, but with a charity job, it pays to believe in the work the organization is doing. After all, without pay, you really need job satisfaction to stay interested.

Why It’s So Important To Get A Background Check On Potential Candidates

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Why It's So Important To Get A Background Check On Potential CandidatesThere are many factors to consider when choosing a potential candidate for a job role and a great many ways that we will generally filter candidates down to find the one that best fits the bill. Generally when we do this though, we will focus on the things that they tell us and on the information presented to us in personal statements and CVs. In other words, we will make our decision based on factors like their personality and their employment history and we will take these matters at face value when given the information.

Unfortunately though, this isn’t always enough and sometimes judging candidates at face value alone can get a company into trouble.

Sometimes employees have things to hide and whether they’re being purposefully dishonest or they just neglect to provide the full details, this can end up causing all manner of problems for the employers. (more…)
