There are many reasons to use an employment agency as an employer and job seeker. Partnering with an employment agency is the best way to go, said Kiley Clausen, operations manager with Celebrity Staff, and affiliate of C&A Industries. “There is no cost to you as a candidate band by completing one application, you have the opportunity to be considered for multiple positions,” she said. Working with an employment agency allows people access to positions they may not find on their own, Clausen said. An agency will help a person get his or her resume in front of the right people and will serve as a voice when applying for jobs. When deciding to work with an agency, look for one that specializes in the career field of their choice, Clausen said. “You want to make sure you’re working with an organization that can get you in front of as many clients as possible and increase your chances of finding your dream job,” she said. After applying with an agency, reach out to that agency, Clausen said. Take it upon yourself to reach out to the agency and request an interview. This will speed up the process and show the recruiter you are serious about your job search. “If you have questions, want an update on a position, or see another opportunity you may be interested in, call us. We love it when the communication goes both ways and it keeps you top of mind as new positions become available,” Clausen said.
