Mergers, buyouts, downsizing, reorgs…Maybe you have a bad boss or are simply unhappy where you are. Companies and agencies often do not reply to your application or seem interested and then suddenly go dark. The process is overwhelming, demoralizing and frustrating. There is another option. Have you ever worked with a staffing agency that specializes in your profession? Why not?!?

Consider some of the reasons you should be using a specialty staffing agency in your job search:

  1. They know and understand your profession. Specialty agencies concentrate their efforts on a few select occupational areas. The best ones are well informed about your profession/skillset. They understand YOU! Here at TimelyText, we specialize in working with Technical Writers and Editors, Instructional Designers, Marketing Content Writers/Copywriters, Corporate Communicators, and Project Managers. That’s ALL we do. So, if those few fields describe your experience, we have placed hundreds of people just like you.

  2. They know where the jobs are. Specialty agencies have established relationships with hiring managers who need the personnel they represent. It is their business and practice to be aware   of most of the opportunities relevant to your skill set, both publicized and unpublicized.

  3. They are building a long-term relationship with you. They’re building a real, long-term relationship with you that may continue for your entire career. It is much more important for them to be responsive to you, so they are! In addition, they consider your skills AND your personal and professional goals. Their goal is to become the go to agency for those occupations. Building an excellent reputation is achieved best for specialty staffing agencies when placement situations result in a true win-win-win.
