Planning and Executing Construction and Contracting Projects: Tips for Consumers

Welcome to my blog. My name is Deborah. About 15 years ago, I bought an old home. We worked with several contractors to rehabilitate it, but ultimately, the foundation simply wasn't stable enough, and we had to tear it down. After that, we worked with a construction crew to build a home from the ground up. The experience was exciting and challenging, and I learned a lot through that process. I want to share construction and contracting facts and information with others so I decided to start this blog. I hope that you like the results, and I thank you for reading. Enjoy!

4 Reasons to Use an Employment Agency When Finding a Job

by Samantha Russell

If you have been having trouble finding a job or even landing an interview, it might be time to change the method you use to look for a job. An excellent resource is an employment agency, sometimes called a temporary agency. You will work for the employment agency, but be sent to different companies for various work assignments. These assignments will vary widely in their length of time and the type of work you will do. Here are some reasons to use an employment agency.

Minimal Experience is Required

When you don't have a lot of experience in a particular field, even if you have proper education and training, it can be hard for a company to trust your abilities. An excellent option when you don't have a lot of experience is to complete some assignments through an employment agency. They will place you with assignments you are qualified for and will be happy to provide references when it comes time to look for a job elsewhere. Companies hiring temporary employees are often willing to give you a chance even without a lot of experience.

You Can Give Specifics About the Job You Want

A great thing about employment agencies is that you can be as specific as you want about the job you are looking for. In fact, it is important that you give them details about the type of job title you would like, what size company you prefer, how far you can travel, what your ideal work schedule is, and even the industries you want to work in. If your degree is in accounting and you know you want to work for a medium-level firm, definitely let them know. The agency will try to find something as close to the job you want as possible.

The Job Placement is Done For You

It can be overwhelming when you are trying to look through multiple job boards, submit dozens of applications, and go to what seem like countless interviews. Luckily, the job search process is a lot easier when you go through an employment agency. For the most part, you only need to fill out one application and go on one interview. Some companies may request another interview with you, but many don't require it as long as you had an interview and screening process through the employment agency.

Some Companies Will Hire You

While you may be going on temporary assignments, some companies will give you the opportunity to leave the temp agency and work for their company for good. This is often done when you are a temp-to-hire where the company wants to try you out first, and if you are a good fit, they will hire you permanently.
