  • How do employment agencies work?

  • It's a simple process really.

  • A jobseeker is looking for work.

  • An employer is looking for workers.

  • The employment agency acts as the bridge between the two parties.

  • How does the agency bridge the gap?

  • Well, it all starts when a jobseeker applies for work through the agency.

  • The agency might have attracted the jobs seeker via a variety of means

  • Help wanted ads, online job boards, word-of-mouth, or even an YouTube video - like the one you're watching right now.

  • What does the employment agency do for the jobseeker?

  • Basically, the agency does everything it can to match the jobseeker to the right job and put them to work.

  • The jobseeker is taken through the application process, and if all goes well, becomes the agency's employee.

  • The employee is then sent out on loan to an employer for which the agency charges a fee to that company.

  • This is a free service for the employee.

  • If you cross paths with an employment agency that wants to charge you to find you a job, be wary.

  • What does the employment agency do for the employer?

  • The employers are , in reality, the agency's clients.

  • The agency serves their client's interests by finding them the right people for their jobs.

  • The client is charged a fee when the right employee is found, which is how an employment agency makes money.

  • The employment agency provides many services to their clients including interviews, screening, human resource services, worker's comp, and more.

  • Sometimes the agency will send an employee to a client to start work right away.

  • Other times, they will first need to submit the jobseeker's resume for an interview.

  • Now, depending on the situation, the employment agency will provide the jobseeker with guidance.

  • They might help with a resume, provide interview tips, or other advice, as it's in the employment agency's interest that the jobseeker gets the job.

  • But, that is only true if they've found the right person.

  • Sending an unqualified person out to a job will compromise the agency's relationship with their client.

  • Also, it's just not good situation for the jobseeker.

  • At Your Employment Solutions, our mission is to send the right person to the right job, the first time, and every time.

  • We want to make sure our employees are hired for a job that fits their best interests.

  • If a jobseeker is sent for an interview, and gets the job, they're generally put to work as soon as possible.

  • Now, the length of time a jobseeker remains an employee of the agency will vary.

  • Some jobs are temporary

  • Others are long-term, but indefinite.

  • Some clients work the employee on a trial basis, say 90 days before extending a permanent offer of employment with their company.

  • Some employers will execute a direct hire right away.

  • Alternatively, if a jobseeker interviews and doesn't get the job, or decides in a professional manner that the job isn't a good fit, an employment agency can sometimes provide other job options, which is another advantage of working with a staffing company

  • A jobseeker can apply to many different jobs via one application.

  • And that's it.

  • That's how employment agencies work.

  • Like I said, simple!

  • If you have any questions, or want to work with the best employment agency in Utah, give Your Employment Solutions a call, or visit any one of our locations in Salt Lake, Ogden, or Logan.
