If you’re searching for a new job you may think of your local staffing agency, but you may be wondering what’s the best way to get your foot in the door. At CRG we work with job seekers in a wide range of fields to help them find their next job opportunity, and we want to ensure that it’s as easy as possible to contact us and connect with one of our recruiters. If you’re looking for a way in, one of these approaches could work best.



Walk In

At some staffing agencies you can simply walk in. Dress formally, as you would for any other professional meeting, and bring along copies of your resume. You might be able to meet with a recruiter that day if one is available. If it doesn’t work out or there’s a long wait, there might be a better and more effective way to get that local staffing agency’s attention.


Submit Resume Online

Submitting your resume online is an easy way to show that you’re interested in the positions that a local temp agency has to offer. This shows the recruiter what you’ve done and gives them an idea of what kinds of positions you may be qualified for. Unlike a meeting where you just walk in to see the recruiter for the first time, now the agency knows a bit about you and is better positioned to help you find that next job.


Call or Email

Once you’ve submitted that resume you may be contacted by a recruiter, but if you’re not contacted right away don’t despair! A staffing agency is likely dealing with many potential job seekers and might not be able to get to you right away. You can take a proactive approach and call or email them to get in touch with a recruiter sooner. Taking this step, and not just sitting back and waiting to be contacted, can potentially show a recruiter that you’re serious about your job hunt.

Follow Up

Once you do get in contact with a recruiter, you’ll probably have an interview where you discuss your goals and what kinds of jobs you’re looking for. After that they’ll usually contact you when they find something that you might be a good fit for, but it’s also a good idea to follow up and reach out on your own. Of course you should send a “thank you” email after the initial email, highlighting some of your goals and bringing up anything you may have neglected to mention about your job search, but after that you should also be in contact with your recruiter whenever possible to remind them that you’re around and looking for work. It might even be a good idea to ask how often you should reach out about job opportunities after your initial interviews.
