5 things to know about staffing agencies


What exactly is a staffing agency? How does a staffing agency work? At Acloché, our main goal is to connect local job seekers to open positions that fit their wants, needs, and skills— but if you’re still a little in the dark, here are 5 helpful things that you may not know about staffing agencies:

1.  It’s always free for the Job Seeker.

While this may not be true for all placement services, Acloché is 100% free for those looking for employment. Not all employment agencies operate like this, but our primary focus is placing candidates in positions where they will find success. We are here to connect you!

2.  Our positions can fit whatever term you are looking for.

Many staffing agencies get the reputation that the positions we offer are only short-term—that’s just not true! We have a large selection of positions available that fit a wide range of needs. While it’s true that a portion of our jobs are short-term, many of them are permanent placement or temp-to-hire, which is great if you would like to test the waters of a certain job before settling in permanently.

3.  We can provide a huge variety of work.

Some agencies just specialize in one industry and hope to find candidates that they can all place in the same types of jobs. At Acloché, nothing could be further from the truth. We offer positions in a ton of different industries: light industrial, warehouse, accounting, call center, clerical, medical, financial, and even high-level positions through our Direct Hire branch.

Acloché can provide work in dozens of occupations. Nationally, staffing agencies follow the same trend:

  • 37% Industrial
  • 28% Office–Clerical and Administrative
  • 13% Professional–Managerial
  • 13% Engineering, Information Technology, and Scientific
  • 9% Health Care

Job Seekers can work with our Staffing team to figure out what suits their skill sets and interests best!

4.  We provide easily accessible real-world experience.

For those who are just coming out of education, whether it be high school or college, you’re going to need real-world work experience as you further your career. We can help with that! Through the positions that are available through Acloché and staffing agencies all across the country, you can learn valuable skills needed in the future, and have new positions to help build out your resume. No matter what the reason, staffing agencies like Acloché are a tremendous resource to those entering the workforce.
