How to Choose the Right Contract Staffing Company

From Zachary Ahlgrim 8/29/2018

You’ve sat down to review your career options and you’ve decided to consider taking a contract position. You do a quick Google search and realize that there are hundreds of staffing companies you could work with. If you’re just starting to think about accepting a contract position, this may seem daunting. Consider these factors as you choose the company you want to work through.

Experience

When it comes to finding the right contract opportunities to suit your needs, the amount of experience the company has in your industry matters. How large is the company? Does the company have specific experience in your niche? What can it bring to the table?

Whether it’s your first contract or your fiftieth, it’s important to choose a staffing firm with the experience needed to find you the contract positions that meet your requirements. Even if you’re a seasoned contractor, your chosen staffing partner should have the industry expertise to give you the confidence to trust that they’ll find you the best opportunities that match your level of experience.

Resources

Another indication of a solid staffing partner are its resources. How large is the company? What industry connections does it have? How good is its reputation in the industry? Will the company have positions for you after you finish your first contract?

Talking to a recruiter can help give you a better idea of the resources the company can provide you with on your contract job search. The best staffing companies will have the resources and knowledge required to match you with the right opportunities. Additionally, its staff should be able to provide you with help getting started, offer career advice, and guide you through your contract job search.

An Established Network

When you’re choosing a contract staffing firm, it’s crucial to get a better understanding of the scope of its business. Does it have well-established relationships with a wide variety of companies looking for technical staffing services?

A top-shelf contract staffing organization will have well-established relationships with a diverse pool of clients across the country in a wide variety of industries. These relationships allow the firm to find you a position you’ll be happy with to ensure success while you’re on the job.

Support

Another consideration when choosing a staffing firm is the support it offers to its contractors. This is especially important if this is your first time working a contract position. Is your recruiter available should you have questions or concerns? Does the company stay in contact with the client to ensure mutual success? Is there a contractor services team you can reach out to for travel and lodging assistance?

A responsive support team can make all the difference when you’re new to working contract positions.
