Being in a candidate-driven market, where unemployment is some of the lowest we’ve seen in a long time, hiring managers are struggling to keep up. Instead of being able to focus on that stack of resumes they need to look through, they are being spread way too thin doing other’s jobs because they don’t have enough people. It’s this endless cycle unless you’re working with a recruiter.

Recruiters are hired by companies to help them fill their critical needs. Which means if they’re reaching out to you, you can almost bet that your resume will be reviewed before it ever would have been if you applied online. Loving a recruiter may seem impossible, but in today’s job market, they could be your one in into a great company you’ve been eyeing!

Recruiters Have the Connections

“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” pertains to recruiters more than probably any field out there. They know the people and companies and what they’re looking for. Again, they are that match-maker everyone can fall in love with and appreciate. Because they do not just help you find a job, they help their clients find a great employee. So, it’s important that they have these connections and trusting in them is easy when you know they are the connection person.

They Are Passionate About Helping You

When it comes down to it recruiters love helping people. They enjoy the fact that they get to place qualified people with companies who care and it’s a process that pays them in more ways than one.

4 Reasons You’ll Love Partnering with a Recruiter

partnering with a recruiter

Many hiring managers and HR professionals have misconceptions about working with a recruiter. A common misunderstanding is that recruiters only care about filling jobs for our clients. That’s simply not true. It’s just as important to us to find qualified candidates that will add value to your organization!

Working with a recruiter takes stress off of your plate and allows you to focus on what’s truly important: your job. And since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, here are four reasons why you’ll love partnering with a recruiter.

Recruiters are (professional) match-makes

Recruiters don’t just find any candidate for your open position. We work diligently to find candidates that are a perfect match for both the position and your organization. We take the time to truly understand your needs and find you candidates that will make a significant impact within your organization. And we don’t just find candidates that look good on paper. JSG takes pride in ensuring that it will be a perfect match for both you and the candidate.

We do the heavy lifting for you

We get it, you’re busy. Let us take some of that stress off your plate. We know how stressful it is to find a talented candidate for your open positions AND continue all of YOUR day-to-day duties. And with 304,000 jobs created in the month of January, you are probably one of the numerous organizations that are dealing with staffing shortages. Allow us to help you find the candidates you need so you can focus on your job.

We can help find a diamond in the rough

Did you know the best candidates are the ones that aren’t even looking? That’s right. Passive candidates are the ones your company wants to hire. They are good at their jobs and happily employed elsewhere. And since they are not actively looking, you probably won’t find their resumes hitting your desk. However, recruiters have strong relationships with candidates that are casually open to new opportunities. We can help find you the “best of the best.” Let us work our magic and help you find those hidden gems that your team would likely never be able to locate.

Recruiters are experienced in your industry

And finally, recruiters have experience in your industry. Yes, you heard that right. We know the Staffing & Recruiting industry well, but we know the ins and outs of your industry, too. We understand that needs, challenges, and hurdles you face. That’s why working with a recruiter is great! We won’t just send you bodies to fill jobs; we care about your needs and want to help match candidates that can fill those needs. By truly understanding your struggles and your industry, we can help find you candidates that are qualified and competent. It’s a match made in heaven.

4 Reasons to Love Contract Work

4 Reasons To LOVE Contract Work

4 Reasons to Love Contract Work

According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, 40.4% of the U.S. workforce is now made of contingent workers. In an era that many experts are deeming “the gig economy,” people are taking control of their careers. If you’ve ever considered jumping on the contracting bandwagon, here are 4 reasons to convince yourself that you’ll love contract work:

Exercise Your Freedom

Working on a contract term allows you flexibility and freedom. If you’re the type of person that doesn’t like to be tied down to one company or location, contract work is the perfect option. You can find contract opportunities of all kinds, from short-term to long-term or local to traveling.

Experience Varied Opportunities

Contract work allows you to “try on” different positions and specialties. You may think you know what industry and/or position you ultimately want out of a career; however, this is a great opportunity to try different options. For example, you may be surprised to find that you have a passion for IT in small mining communities, even though you previously dreamed of doing IT for a big software company.

Get Your Foot In The Door

In addition, contract work is a great way to “try before you buy.” It’s the perfect opportunity to get a feel for a company or a role that you are unsure of, while making contacts and connections within the industry. Sometimes contract jobs evolve into full-time offers, making it a great way to get your foot in the door.

Hone Your Expertise

Contract jobs give you the opportunity to really hone in on your expertise. Rather than working a full-time job that juggles multiple responsibilities, contract work often concentrates on a narrow specialty. And the more contracts you take, the more skilled you become at your craft. This makes your expertise in specific areas extremely valuable – and can be great leverage for future contract opportunities or even full-time positions.

Contract work is on the rise and companies are scrambling to adapt their recruiting strategy. According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, 40.4% of the U.S. workforce is now made of contingent workers. Hiring contractors, whether W2 or 1099, offers a variety of benefits to your team and company. Here are just 4 of the reasons we LOVE hiring contractors!

Flexibility

The biggest benefit to hiring contractors is that it allows flexibility for your team. Whether you are working on a short-term project, have a fluctuating budget, or want to “try before you buy,” contractors are the way to go. You can set the contract length for as long or short as you need to get the work done. It’s also a great time to test the waters with a candidate that you are unsure of. By going the contract route, you can hire someone for a specific amount of time, with the option of offering them a permanent position.

Specialization

Contractors are typically highly specialized in their roles. Because they’ve worked for multiple companies on similar projects, their expertise is deeply ingrained in specific areas. This makes contractors a great fit for projects that require micro-specialization or have aspects that are outside of your typical scope of work.

Speed

When you choose to hire contractors, you’ll save time in multiple ways. The time to hire can be significantly decreased, especially if the contractor is already looking for their next project. Additionally, because contractors are so specialized and have so much experience, they can jump into a project quickly without a ton of training or direction.

Cost Savings

Although many contractors charge a higher hourly rate, it will save your company money in the long-run. Because the contract can be temporary, you only need to have a contractor on board as long as you need them. Their specialization also allows them to complete projects more efficiently, creating cost savings across the board.
