The Whys and Wherefores of Temp Staffing Agencies

by Sally Wright on Nov 12, 2010

Even before the recession, there were enough people seeking jobs that the proportion of employers to potential employees became highly skewed and necessitated a middleman. Irving temporary staffing agencies are such intermediaries who help organizations – corporate or otherwise shortlist a few ideal candidates to fill any vacant positions. The adjective ‘temporary’ is usually used to connote the time duration of employment. Candidates are asked to apply to the staffing agency for a position that may only be open through the summer or for half a year, for example. The usual process is for companies to provide the description of the position to be filled, along with a list of qualifications that are absolutely mandatory, as also other skills and abilities that ideal candidates may possess. Sometimes a representative from the company may act as a courier in the preliminary hiring process. At this stage, the staffing agency has some decisions to make. Usually, Irving temporary staffing agencies already have a collection of resumés that jobseekers have submitted to them. Such a “catalog” may have been sent to the hiring firm, among others, in the past. If the company feels that these candidates do not fit the bill, the temp staffing agency might advertise for the position through internet job search portals, as also college and university career service offices. They may even generally advertise and have a fresh set of resumés to choose a candidate from. Depending on the firm’s instructions, the temp staffing agency may conduct a first round of interviews for a few candidates before sending their credentials on to the company. Such interviews may have one or more company representatives present. The shortlisted interviewees then undergo further interviews with the company. In some cases, the temp staffing agency may also handle the entire interview process with personnel from the company’s human resources department and/or other higher level staff sitting on and leading later interviews. Some companies and their preferred Irving temporary staffing agencies maintain copies of the same résumé book, so that in the event the company finds a particular candidate’s profile suitable, they can initiate the interview process faster. In fact, this time factor is another reason for the existence of staffing agencies. The nature of temporary positions requires companies to find and put employees to work very quickly, and having candidates selected and interviewed directly would consume far more time than it would take a staffing agency who already have much ground covered. Some highly rated staffing agencies routinely conduct candidate interviews to keep their own shortlist which further shortens the turnaround time between a company requesting for candidates and the temp staffing agency supplying the list. Candidates are also aware that registering their résumés with staffing agencies increases their chances of finding short-term employment. Again, in the interest of students, the career services centers mentioned also lend résumé books to staffing agencies. Irving temporary staffing agencies thus act as a fulcrum or crossroads for the hiring process which can be accessed by those hiring as well as those seeking to be hired.
