Graduating in December? Register with a Staffing Agency!
The month leading up to graduation can be a very stressful time. The papers, the projects and the general anxiety of what comes after can become overwhelming. And these days, having a college degree doesn’t guarantee you a job right away. In fact, only about 15% of graduates have a steady/career-related position lined up in the months leading to graduation. If you’re part of the 85% of soon-to-be graduates without a job lined up, you should consider registering with a staffing agency. Let’s break down how a company like Signature Staffing can help a soon-to-be graduate like yourself:
Gain Experience & Referrals
Adding new work experience to your resume is never a bad thing. With every job comes an opportunity to fine-tune skills and to broaden your horizons. You never know when a skill learned in one position may come in handy at the next. In addition to that, you never know who you may meet while on the job. Building your references is a great way to increase your odds of getting into your dream position!
Avoid Employment Gaps
The great thing about registering with Signature Staffing is that we can help you avoid any growing employment gaps. Many companies understand that being a full-time student doesn’t always leave time for a job. Therefore, they are likely to consider your time spent in school as part of your employment history. However, once you’ve graduated, they may become more critical of any gaps in that history. By registering with us, we can get you into a position to avoid that.
An unfortunate draw-back of obtaining a degree is the cost behind it. The longer you are out of work, the longer that bill goes unpaid. It’s good to get a head start and start chipping away at any debts accrued as soon as possible. By registering with us we can help find you a position to ease your financial woes.
Another hidden benefit of registering with Signature Staffing is that we are in close contact with our sister company, Signature Executives. Signature Executives offers recruitment services to companies who are looking to fill executive-level positions. Registrants that hold a bachelor’s degree or higher are also placed in the Signature Executives’ recruitment system. Therefore, unlike most staffing agencies, we also have the ability to place you in your next career!
Congratulations graduates! Good luck!
