The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses throughout the world to decrease their staff, or even close their does, resulting in the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. economy lost 20.5 million jobs in April, pushing the unemployment rate to 14.7%.
Though these unprecedented times can be stressful, unpredictable, and exhausting, your search for your next job opportunity doesn’t have to be when using a staffing agency, like The Global Edge Consultants.
A job seeker can use a recruitment firm to find a variety of jobs, in several industries, with different experience level positions available.
How a Staffing Agency Works
The goal of a staffing agency is to help candidates find suitable opportunities that they are passionate about. Companies in a variety of industries ask staffing firms to find suitable candidates for their available positions, whether they are direct-hire positions (permanent positions through the employer) or contracted positions (positions hired for a predetermined amount of time, can be extended to a direct-hire position in some cases).
The recruitment agency will then find candidates that they believe best suit the position. The recruiter will then aid the candidate with their resume, give them interview advice, and best prepare them for the company interview.
At The Global Edge, each of our dedicated recruiters are specialized in a specific industry, making sure that they are knowledgeable in their field and are able to help their candidate best with their resume and interview advice. We make sure that we maintain a consistent and transparent relationship with all our candidates and use our experience in the recruitment industry to provide effective and helpful advice for all candidates.
They Make Sure You Look Your Best
Staffing firms always want you to look your best for any employer. With years in the recruitment industry, The Global Edge team has first-hand knowledge of what employers are looking for in their candidates. Your recruiter will be with you every step of the way, making sure you’re best prepared with your resume and interview.
At The Global Edge, we pride ourselves on having recruiters who develop personal relationships with each candidate, which is a key differentiating factor of our company. This allows candidates to feel comfortable and confident that they are receiving the most up-to date information and aid in finding a position that is best suited for them.
A Variety of Opportunities
When giving your resume to a recruitment agency, you’re opening your future to a variety of opportunities. Since staffing firms have numerous available positions in a variety of industries, you can, with the help of your recruiter, customize what you want to do with your career, and what types of positions you want to apply for.
At The Global Edge, we care about the details. Each of our recruiters take note of their candidates’ history, goals, and aspirations and load it into our database. Then, at any time in the future, if a position becomes available that matches any of their candidates specifications, the recruiter is notified and he or she will reach out their candidate about the opportunity. We believe that finding a job doesn’t have to be a one-time transaction but can be a long-time relationship ensuring the candidate always feels valued and heard.
Trust Your Source
At The Global Edge, one of our core values is integrity. Each one of our employees stands by this core value and believes in doing the right thing no matter the cost.
Unfortunately, like in most industries, not all companies stand by the value of integrity and candidates may find themselves in situations that do more harm than good. At The Global Edge, we will never ask candidates for payment, as the services to candidates are always free of charge. Additionally, we will not require sensitive personal information before any employment position is offered and will not pressure candidates to “close the deal” as fake recruiter scams may do.
Our goal at The Global Edge is to be the agency of choice for clients and candidates alike, and to make that possible we strongly value integrity and promise to people our people first.
