If you are looking for a job and have never used the services of a staffing agency before, you may have some questions. As with all industries, details vary from company to company. The main goal remains the same, however, and that is to match candidates to the right jobs. Below we have taken some of the most frequently asked questions we hear in our Orlando office and listed them to help you in your decision to seek employment through an Orlando staffing agency.
What should I bring with me to the interview?
Although you will have most likely already sent it through to your recuiter, it is a good idea to have a hard copy of your resume on hand, as well as a list of references and any licenses or certificates you may have. Coming equipped with a professional, positive attitude can't hurt either.
How should I dress?
As with any other interview, you want to look your best. We have a couple of thoughts on this subject, which you can find here. Put your best foot forward. Dress up, never down.
How does the process work?
There are a couple of different ways. Some candidates may apply directly to a specific job. After the interview with the staffing agency, if you match the job description's qualifications, your recruiter will submit your resume and a description of your experience to the hiring manager for that job. If the hiring manager is interested, a phone or in-person interview with that hiring manager will be arranged.
Other candidates may submit their resumes without interest in one specific job. In this case, the recruiter will match your qualifications with any jobs that the staffing agency might have on hand.
What identification do I need?
You will need no specific identification for the initial interview. Upon placement, you will be requried to show a few forms of identification, which your recruiter will walk you through.
How much is the job paying and what is the comapny's name?
Both very important questions which will be answered in the in-person interview with your recruiter. Pay scale can depend upon qualifications and experience.
