We often discuss areas important to people who are looking for a new job or career. We just posted a blog on what to do about your resume if you have no experience.
For this post, we would like to talk directly to those looking to fill a position in their organization and why it is a smart move to use an agency like The Essex Companies.
We Save You Time
When you first post an open position, you could be inundated with people looking to apply. Going through all those resumes can be a daunting task. Besides looking through all of the resumes in search of the people who match your requirements, you have to know which candidates are serious and which might not be right based on a one or two-page resume and cover letter. If you do not read resumes regularly, you can spend an inordinate amount of time reading and be no closer to narrowing the field down to a reasonable number of people who you will be able to interview.
We see hundreds of resumes a week, and we have an excellent feel for who would be a good fit for a position and who might not be quite right.
We can pull from a more extensive network of job seekers.
Posting a job online with one of the many services can be a costly proposition. You may be limited to the avenues available to you to get your job opening out to the general public. We have access to a larger pool of people giving us a better chance of finding the right person for your position.
We help you through the process
While we will handle the first interviews to ensure that the candidate is a good fit, when you work with The Essex Companies, we work with you through the entire process from initial job listing to onboarding your new hire. This is of particular benefit to small companies that might not have a fully dedicated human resources department.
The original Temp-to-Perm Program
Essex pioneered the No-Risk Temp-to-Perm program. The significant advantage of our No Fee Temp-to-Perm Program is that it is an entirely No-Risk program. When companies hire a new person, there is usually a probationary period for some time at the beginning of the employment. This is generally the time of the most significant risk for the hiring company.
When you utilize our No Fee Temp-to-Perm Program through Essex Temporary Services, your new employee remains on our payroll throughout the new employee’s probationary period. After the probationary period is over, the chances of the employee remaining with your company are significantly increased. At that point, we transition the employee to your company payroll at no additional cost to you.
We are in a great time in the New York Region job market. People are ready to get back to work, and companies are once again hiring. The Essex Companies has been through all of the highs and lows of the New York job market since 1966, and now that people are ready to get back to work, we are ready to get the right people into the right positions.
