If you’re graduating from college this spring and looking to find work in the “real world,” there are a few options out there you might have not thought about to launch your post-grad career. For instance, reach out to an executive recruiter in South Florida. Staffing agencies will help you land a job at no cost to you. Be sure to update your resume and reach out to a staffing agency, such as Sloane Staffing, to let them know you are about to graduate and are in the job market. Recruiters have close relationships with hiring managers, and will often get your resume to the top of the pile, beating out hundreds of other candidates. Staffing agencies will also help place you at a company that you are culturally fit for. In addition, consider taking on a contract role, even though this may not be your first choice. More often then none, contract roles turn into full time positions. They are a great way to meet people internally at the company you work at, form connections, mingle with other hiring managers, and put you in a position in front of upper-level leadership. If you do your job well, your contract will usually be extended, or even better, you will be brought on full time. Think of it as a “try before you hire” process. This also gives you the opportunity to test out the company, and if you don’t like it, you are not obligated to stay. These types of positions can be ideal for jump starting your career. If you are about to graduate from college and are seeking employment, use these tips to your advantage. Reach out to the recruitment team here at Sloane Staffing with any questions!
