Benefits of Using a Staffing Agency for Job Seekers


7 July 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses worldwide to decrease their staff or even close theirs, resulting in the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. economy lost 20.5 million jobs in April, pushing the unemployment rate to 14.7%.

Though these unprecedented times can be stressful, unpredictable, and exhausting, your search for your next job opportunity doesn’t have to be when using a staffing agency like The Global Edge Consultants.

A job seeker can use a recruitment firm to find various jobs in several industries with different experience level positions available.

How a Staffing Agency Works

The goal of a staffing agency is to help candidates find suitable opportunities they are passionate about. Companies in various industries ask staffing firms to find qualified candidates for their available positions, whether direct-hire positions (permanent jobs through the employer) or contracted positions (positions hired for a predetermined amount of time can be extended to a direct-hire place in some cases).

The recruitment agency will then find candidates that they believe best suit the position. The recruiter will then aid the candidate with their resume, give them interview advice, and best prepare them for the company interview.

At The Global Edge, each of our dedicated recruiters specializes in a specific industry, ensuring they are knowledgeable in their field and can help their candidates best with their resume and interview advice. We make sure that we maintain a consistent and transparent relationship with all our candidates and use our experience in the recruitment industry to provide practical and helpful advice for all candidates.

They Make Sure You Look Your Best

Staffing firms always want you to look your best for any employer. With years in the recruitment industry, The Global Edge team has first-hand knowledge of what employers seek in their candidates. Your recruiter will be with you every step of the way, ensuring you’re best prepared with your resume and interview.

At The Global Edge, we pride ourselves on having recruiters who develop personal relationships with each candidate, which is a key differentiating factor of our company. This allows candidates to feel comfortable and confident that they are receiving the most up-to-date information and aids in finding a position that is best suited for them.

A Variety of Opportunities

When giving your resume to a recruitment agency, you’re opening your future to various opportunities. Since staffing firms have numerous available positions in a variety of industries, you can, with the help of your recruiter, customize what you want to do with your career and what types of positions you want to apply for.

At The Global Edge, we care about the details. Each of our recruiters takes note of their candidates’ history, goals, and aspirations and loads it into our database. Then, at any time in the future, if a position becomes available that matches any of their candidate’s specifications, the recruiter is notified, and they will reach out to the candidate about the opportunity. We believe finding a job doesn’t have to be a one-time transaction but can be a long-term relationship ensuring the candidate always feels valued and heard.

Trust Your Source

At The Global Edge, one of our core values is integrity. Each of our employees stands by this core value and believes in doing the right thing no matter the cost.

Unfortunately, like in most industries, not all companies stand by the value of integrity, and candidates may find themselves in situations that do more harm than good. At The Global Edge, we will never ask candidates for payment, as the services to candidates are always free. Additionally, we will not require sensitive personal information before any employment position is offered and will not pressure candidates to “close the deal,” as fake recruiter scams may do.

Our goal at The Global Edge is to be the agency of choice for clients and candidates alike, and to make that possible, we strongly value integrity and promise to people our people first.

At The Global Edge, our people are our passion. With a focus on integrity, communication, and excellent service, we are confident that we can help you find your next employment opportunity.
