How to get the most out of your Employment Agency: Part 1

Finding a job can be tough—especially these days. For job seekers, the help of an employment agency can make all the difference. A staffing company offers tons of advantages for those looking for a job—they can offer you positions in your area of interest, they have access to job postings that aren’t available to the public, and the temporary jobs they fill often turn into full-time positions.

If you’ve never used an employment agency to find a job before, don’t be intimidated. The staffing experts at ABL Employment have put together an extensive “how to” list to help you get the most out of your employment agency. Keep reading for Part 1 of our “How to” list…

Find the Right Agency: Generally, employment agencies tend to focus on specific sectors—media, IT, administrative work, and so on. Before settling on an employment agency, do some research and find out what employment agencies provide positions in your field of interest. ABL Employment offers tons of industrial labour jobs, assembly jobs, and automotive jobs in various areas across Southern Ontario and the Vancouver/Lower Mainland areas.

Make a Phone Call: Don’t send in your resume and cover letter right away after you’ve found an employment agency that offers jobs in the right industry. Instead, make yourself stand out by giving the agency a phone call and personally introducing yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask questions during this call, either—you don’t want to waste your time applying for a position as a temp employee at a staffing company you don’t feel comfortable working for.

Ace the Interview: Much like any other interview, your goal is to get a job. Play up your strengths and put a positive spin on your weaknesses. Dress appropriately to create a great impression. Come prepared with your availability and a list of questions. It’s also a good idea to do some research about the company you’re applying for a job with before arriving at the interview.

Create a Professional-looking CV: Take some extra time to edit your cover letter and resume. Be sure to tailor your resume to the position that you are applying for—no matter how general or specific it may be. Ask a friend to check for spelling and grammar errors—it’s often easier for someone else to find mistakes in your work. In addition, come prepared with a list of references and copies of any relevant certifications you may have.

ABL Employment offers plenty of temp jobs throughout Toronto, Burlington, Hamilton and the GTA. We also have locations in London, Woodstock and Brampton, and now Vancouver, too!
