Your Questions About Job Finding Agency

Daniel asks…

What’s the difference between going to a company’s website and find a job yourself and using a staffing agency

I feel like staffing agencies jobs are more temp and informal. So if you can find a job on your own, don’t use a staffing agency, is that right?

Robin West answers:

The positive thing about staffing agencies is that employers contact them. But really it depends on what type of job you’re looking for. If you can find the kind of job you want without using one, then don’t use one.

Your Questions About Job Finding Agency

Thomas asks…

Which serious crew finding agency can help me board a job on a yacht?

Many thanks for your help and links!

Robin West answers:

With all due respect to the previous poster; writing to a captain of a boat? Where do you send the letter? Just kidding, but not really…

In reality almost all crew positions on larger yachts are filled by agencies specializing in training and placement of crews. Moran Yacht and Ship, Crewfinders, and Yacht Crew Register are three respectable names in the industry. Having an “in” doesn’t hurt….
Be aware that working one of these boats is usually fairly lucrative financially, considering you often times are traveling around the world, BUT starting positions such as stewards usually are found on smaller, older boats in less desireable locales. (You may find yourself working a 90′ Burger on the Chesapeake for a few seasons before you land that sweet job aboard “Limitless” in St. Maarten or St. Barths.)

Mandy asks…

I want to get out of the Philippines and work in Canada. Where can I find an job agency for Canada?

I need sponsorship. What is the first thing for me to do?

Robin West answers:

Contact www.caregivers.ca
they have tons of experience immigration from Philippines to Canada. They have a department focusing on caregivers, but the whole company is involved with other careers, other types of immigration too.

You can get official immigration information from Canada’s govt. Website www.gc.ca

Robert asks…

A temp agency job where I type letters all day?

A friend of mine mentioned I should work for a “temp agency and find a job where I type letters all day?”

Is this a real job a college student could do part time? How does it work? Are you paid hourly? For how many letters you type? And also, how would I go about getting one of these?

Robin West answers:

I don’t think there is a job where you strictly type letters all day. But you can get a job as an office clerk filing, answering phones, typing, etc…You would be paid hourly. Contact your local temp agency for more details and to find out what is in the area. You could also look in your local paper and on monster.com

Susan asks…

where can i find a job labor agency for a spanish speaker?

I’m trying to find my mom an agency where they might help her find a job in Phoenix, Arizona or the surrounding cities. She’s ok at english but not yet fluent. Thanks

Robin West answers:

Try searching via Siftin.com jobs vertical/aggregator. They look at all the top job sites/aggregators, providing access to both big and small employers. Some of the sites searched are: craigslist, dice.com, backpage.com, olx.com, monster.com, careerbuilder.com, jobster, simplyhired, indeed.com, yahoo hotjobs, …
Try their preview feature. Their spanish language translation takes long time, so you are better looking at results in English

Good luck!

Your Questions About Job Finding Agency

Lizzie asks…

Need advise on using job agency I found current job with for new role?

I have been in my current role for a while, found through a job agency. Now I am looking to further my career and would like to use the same agency. They have a strong relationship with my current company, so would they honor my custom or would they be unable to represent me while I look for another role?

Robin West answers:

Only they can definitely answer your question but think about what would happen if they told your current employer that you had approached them to look for another job. You would not only be well pd off you would make sure that many other people knew you were and why. That would mean a loss of goodwill and reputation for the agency.

If you were happy with the way they treated you before I would use them again safe in the knowledge that it is very unlikely that they would break the confidence of your application

Your Questions About Job Finding Agency

Joseph asks…

I would like to work evenings and weekends as my second job. Which agency can guide me best in finding job?

this will be my second job. I am already working full time. I just need to get in touch with agents that can provide me with a list of jobs (weekend or after hours job) listing. Jobs should be located in Melbourne CBD or Outer Eastern Suburbs (melbourne).

Robin West answers:

I don’t know of any jobs that would work around your schedule but I do know of a work from home business opportunity that would. It could even replace your current income. I have been working with this company since around December. I have five children and a husband that I work around my business. They have been awarded the BBB and Inc. 500′s hall of fame award. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Blue Chip award among many other awards. I don’t have to host parties, sell, stock or deliver products. I don’t even have to worry about collecting money.

Your Questions About Job Finding Agency

Mary asks…

What are the pros and cons of finding a job through an employment agency?

I’m having a hard time finding a good job and I’m considering using an agency to help me find work. I’ve never done this before. Can anyone give me the pros and cons? They told me that we can work out direct hire or temp to hire options so I’m not bouncing from one assignment to the next.

Robin West answers:

Pros:
They have access to more employers. Many of those employers won’t advertise anywhere else.
Also, they will allow you to seek jobs on your own still. It doesn’t take anything AWAY from your search, just adds more places to look.

Cons:
They take part of your pay if it’s temporary. Typically they don’t do that for permanent jobs though.
Also, getting a temp job through them might make it harder to find a permanent job depending on your commitment.
Temp jobs aren’t great on the resume either.

Overall I think they add without harming your search, so go for it, but don’t rely JUST on them.
