Key Terms Relating to Job Searching and Employment Agencies

If you are searching for a job opportunity, there are several ways to get started. An employment agency can help you find a vacancy that matches your skills and expertise. The first step is deciding what types of work you are interested in pursuing and tailoring a resume for that type of position. The search for a new opportunity can be difficult. These are five key terms to help you when looking for job opportunities.

  • Clerical - A type of position that routine office tasks. This type of position can also be referred to as administrative. It includes positions such as secretaries, receptionists and assistants. The work may entail computer data entry.
  • Contractor - A person who is hired to provide a service outlined in a contract. A contractor does work for a company without being considered an employee of that company.
  • Recruiter - A person who works for an employment agency or business. A recruiter looks for candidates to fill a specific job role. Recruiters are sometimes referred to as headhunters.
  • Temporary - A position that has a specified end date. Temp positions are often used during periods of heightened workloads or for seasonal businesses.
  • Temp-to-hire - This is a type of temporary position in which you would have an opportunity to be hired into the company at the end of the temporary period. Once hired as a regular employee of the company, extra benefits are usually included. Employees will generally have a higher salary as well as access to health insurance benefits and 401k.

    Employment agencies perform a broker service, matching job seekers with employers. They may work in any number of specialist areas, but the largest number focus on temporary staffing and office jobs. In many cases, an agency will fill and offer mostly entry level jobs. Routine work such as data entry and retail are common. The agency may also use its own database to find employees internally. The Federal Government has its own employment agency that helps fill government positions. An employment agency or headhunter may, however, hire for positions all the way up to the highest levels of management. Some companies may also use one to outsource human resources. Others may only seek to fill a specific vacancy. Temporary workers are either considered contractors or employees of the agency itself. They may not, thus, be given benefits. Most agencies work locally. They may also offer career development to employees, such as training in computer skills. Some may help a worker refine his or her resume. They may also search job and resume posting sites to recruit candidates for a specific opportunity. In many cases, though, the workers come to them, signing up for inclusion in a database. Another specialist form of agency is a supported employment agency. These firms focus on finding employment for persons with disabilities. They may or may not be subsidized by the government. Some agencies provide virtual services, existing only as job boards on the internet. These online agencies may provide only the board or they may provide a range of support services for both employees and clients. Most of these boards are searchable databases. Employment agencies provide a very important service, especially for individuals new to a city or region. They also help companies with difficulty recruiting for a specific opportunity or position.
