If a company has a job to fill and someone has the necessary experience, the role of the staffing agency can be unclear. However, the reality of the job market is much more chaotic: hiring is just one of many projects a company is undertaking, and the talented people applying for those jobs must be evaluated in a complicated rubric of skill, experience, culture and more.
Luckily, staffing agencies, and Horizontal Integration in particular, are here to help.
For the company
Here are a few reasons to add staffing agencies to your hiring process as someone looking to hire.
- Hiring is their focus
Most companies distribute the hiring process between HR, department heads and more. It takes time to get these departments together, which takes away from other ongoing projects.
At a staffing firm, finding, screening and selecting talent is their specialty. Since it’s all they do, they speed up the process. They also have an understanding of the field as a whole, both within and outside of your company.
- They have extended networks
Whatever a hiring organization’s reach, chances are, a staffing agency’s reach is larger. Why? Because they maintain a pool of passive candidates—candidates who aren’t actively looking for jobs but might be wooed to a new position. Additionally, candidates are Prescreened, which means the placement process is easier and shorter.
For the job seeker
Horizontal Integration recruiters work closely with companies for years, so they know who to talk to and what questions to ask. And they probably have good jobs in adjacent fields that you might not know to look for.
Additionally, they can do more for you than get you in an interview. They can help with cover letters and resumes and offer advice on next steps for career advancement.
Working with a recruiter is perfect if you’re curious about a field or company but aren’t ready or able to commit. With contract and contract-to-hire jobs, H Horizontal Integration can allow you to dip your toes into a field. And if you love it, permanent jobs are also available.
