Name That Staffing Company

You know that company you really want to work for, but it doesn’t have any current openings or isn’t sold on your background being a fit for its needs? A simple question may help you gain entry when the odds don’t seem to be in your favor.

The next time a company gives you the cold shoulder, try asking the hiring manager what recruiting agencies the company is likely to turn to for projects or interim staffing solutions. Reiterate your interest in the company and express your willingness to demonstrate your abilities in a temporary capacity. If the company gives you the names of the agencies it partners with, contact those agencies, let them know you are aware of their relationship with ABC Company and ask them what you need to do to qualify to be an option for assignments with them. Let them know you are also willing to consider opportunities in similar settings.

Many companies are relying on temporary agencies right now. If your situation is such you are able to consider project work, don’t miss out on the chance to make a good impression with the companies you’re targeting through temporary assignments.
