Companies are looking to increase their use of staffing agencies for those hard-to-fill positions. According to an article in LinkedIn Talent Blog, 73% of candidates are willing to hear from in-house recruiters as much as they are willing to hear from headhunters. Unfortunately, the problem comes from a lack of experience with headhunters. According to the Talent Trends Survey, 35% of respondents said they’ve never used a staffing firm to find a job. Luckily, this becomes an opportunity for you. Although it’s important to build on employment trends, it’s also important to protect your client with Staffing Agency Liability.
With this rise in staffing agencies, there is room to build your personal and/or company brand by finding the right candidates. Here are some staffing agency strategies to engage in catching the elusive job searchers.
