Examining Employment Agency Myths
Have you considered using an employment agency to find your next job? Temporary work is a great way to take that next step in your career, so don’t be led astray by some common myths about using a temp agency.
Myth No. 1: You have to PAY to play.
Reality: No Cost to You
Reputable employment agencies are paid solely by client companies, leaving candidates with no out-of-pocket expenses.
Myth No. 2: Agencies only offer low-level work.
Reality: Challenging Assignments
Companies have hired temporary workers to oversee accounts receivable, process payroll, conduct audits and investigate fraud.
Myth No. 3: Temporary jobs pay less.
Reality: Competitive Pay
Temporary workers are paid on par with the hourly earnings of salaried staff — and potentially even more if their specialized skills can help fill a critical need.
Myth No. 4: You’ll have no chance to develop new skills.
Reality: Training Provided
The best employment agencies offer free skills training even prior to placement, helping you polish your profile with additional expertise.
Myth No. 5: Temporary assignments interfere with your search for full-time jobs.
Reality: Opens New Doors
Many companies use temporary assignments to evaluate candidates for full-time positions, enabling you to develop and apply relevant skills right before their eyes.
