Obtaining your first job after high school or college is a significant achievement. With the unemployment rate the lowest it has been in 50 years, graduates have a lot of options. Before you limit yourself to the usual searches, consider working with a staffing specialist like Crown Services.

By working with a staffing business you broaden your job prospective to a larger range of companies – some you may have never heard of or considered. A recent survey found that most recent college grads prefer to work for a company with fewer than 1,000 people but have trouble finding these positions. A staffing specialist can help you get noticed by the right people and companies.

A staffing company also saves you time. Instead of having to fill out dozens of applications at individual companies, you complete one form to facilitate the process.

After studying for four plus years, it’s still common to have a few questions about your chosen field. Often the reality of working in “the real world” is vastly different than it is in the classroom. By working with a staffing company, it’s easy to see how your college studies translate into the corporate world.

While some healthcare students may think they want to work in a clinical setting, they may find that they don’t like working with people. Instead, they may find a lab setting a better fit.

With the temporary nature of work that a staffing company offers, recent college grads can try out a variety of workplaces before finding the right environment/company where they can thrive.

For new grads that do not have internship experience, working with a staffing company is a great way to strengthen your resume. By working with a variety of businesses, you can show that you have the portfolio of skills and projects needed to succeed in a full-time position.

Some graduates may not want to consider taking a temporary position, but it can actually be an even better way to secure that full-time job. Many companies that work with staffing companies use temporary jobs to see if a candidate is the right fit for them. Often, they’ll hire those employees for a full-time job. Not only does this approach benefit the company, it also gives employees a great way to see if they like the company and want to start their career there.

Ensure you’re giving yourself the best career opportunities by working with a staffing specialist. Broadening your job prospects is easier and you’ll be more confident that you’re in the best position for your skills and goals.
