Looking For Full Time Or Part Time and Temporary Work?

The information we present here should help you find a reputable employment agency for your job search needs. We'll give you signs to watch out for and more information. Read on!

If You Are Looking For Permanent Full Time Work

You may choose to use the services of an employment agency to help you find a job. These days, there are so many jobs listed online as well as the traditional newspaper help wanted columns, that most people turn to an employment agency when they don't seem to be having any luck finding a job on their own. One of the disadvantages of using an employment agency is that you will probably have to pay for your job, at least all of the fee or part of the fee. Some employers will either pay the fee or split the fee with their newly hired employee. For this reason, many people steer clear of employment agencies. But they do have their place. Employment agencies can be industry-specific, such as in retail, banking or the medical field. A good employment agency should sit down with you and your resume and assist you in making sure it is up to date and presents you and your talents in the best way. They should be contacting you with job leads often, and following up with you when you have had an interview.

If You Are Looking For A Temporary Job

The temporary (or "Temp") agency may be a good place to look if you only want to work a few days a week, or a few weeks a month. Even if you are really looking for a full time job, you may find that listing yourself with a temporary agency is a good way to lead into full time employment. One advantage to working through a temporary agency is that there are no fees to you. Employment fees are paid by the employer. The employer pays the temporary agent, and your paychecks will also come from the agency. Many agencies pay weekly. Another advantage is that you can choose to work only a few weeks a month, or only on specific days. Temp agencies are used by employers who are looking to fill temporary positions or for temporary jobs that can't be handled their regular employers. And still another plus to listing with a temporary agency is that if an employer likes your work and is in need of a full time worker, you may be offered a permanent position with the firm. Usually in this case, the employment fee is paid by the employer. And if you like a change of scenery and jobs, you will probably like working for a temporary agency.

If You Are Looking For An Employee

If you're the employer looking for help, either permanent or temporary, you may choose to list your jobs with an employment agency. A good employment agency will have tested their candidates and will be able to match up someone who should fulfill the requirements you have established for your job opening. The advantage to you in going through an employment agency is that the candidates for your openings should be fully qualified to become an integral part of your team. And the same thing applies if you are looking for temporary help, either to help out during vacations or illness of one of your employees, or if there is a special project that you want to hire outside help to handle. Again, candidates for your openings should have been tested and their skills noted so that they can be matched to the temporary job you have open.

Things To Watch Out For When Selecting An Employment Agency

The Federal Trade Commission has put out an online bulletin describing the various types of employment agencies and some things to be aware of. The following points are taken from their web site: Be suspicious of a firm which promises to get you a job.
Be suspicious of a firm which charges fees upfront, even if they promise a refund if you don't get a job through them. Fees should not be charged until you have been hired.
Don't give out your credit card or bank account information over the phone, unless you are very familiar with the firm you are dealing with.
Take your time reviewing the contract, don't be rushed into signing something without being fully satisfied that you can live with the terms.
Be sure you retain a copy of the contract and that you understand the terms.
Be cautious about listing with an agency that is reluctant to answer your questions fully or is evasive with their answers.
Be wary of firms which advertise "undisclosed government jobs." All federal jobs are announced to the public. Check with your local Better Business Bureau to be sure no complaints have been filed against the agency.
