Employment agency helped me make a career come back!!
August 16, 2017 - 2:53 pm

People definitely under-estimate the benefit of employment agencies. After being out of work for over a year, I was really worried that I would remain unemployed because as I've always heard "gaps are bad". My assumption was I would have to greatly diminish my expectations. I was referred to an agency by a friend so I submitted my name and got a long term assignment which allowed me to take home more than I was making at my last full-time position. In NY most agencies now have some form of benefit package so things are not as bad as they used to be. The benefit of an agency is that they are incentivized to get you hired either fulltime or as a "temp/consultant", so they become your advocate and all your insecurities and shortcomings are rebranded and sold to get firms looking to hire talented people. After having an assignment which lasted over a year at a top firm, I was able to utilize that experience for an awesome fulltime position elsewhere and the gap isn't even an issue!

This is really good. I always thought that they were scams but i'll start taking them seriously. This is great information!
