How Employment Agencies Work for Both Companies and Job Seekers
Although the Massachusetts economy has shown signs of improvement over the past several months, unemployment rates still remain higher than normal. Recently, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a slight decline in these high unemployment rates as did the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Yet, even with this improvement and predictions of a more stable economy, employers have continued to remain exceptionally cautious with their hiring plans. For this reason and others, many engineering job seekers are turning to employment agencies to help them find meaningful work. Additionally, many of the companies that are hiring are now starting to utilize the services of an employment agency to assist them with their recruiting activities.
Employment agencies provide significant value in two ways; they help companies identify qualified applicants to fill engineering positions, and they match a job seeker’s specific talents and experience with the companies who are hiring to fill positions with those skills. Depending on the company’s needs, these positions may be contract, contract-to-direct or direct hire.
