Staffing Agencies: Two Job-Hunters are Better than One
Of all the ways to find a job—job boards, networking, company websites—we don’t hear much about staffing agencies. Simply put, the agency serves as a “middleman” between you and potential employers. Upon submitting your resume to an agency, you’ll then be considered when the agency is tasked with filling a vacant role within a client employer.
While staffing agencies may bring to mind temporary clerical gigs or confidential executive postings, recent grads and those early in their career can take advantage, too.
There are a number of staffing giants, but here are a few targeted agencies to check out:

Specializes in placing creative types.
Specializes in placing candidates in luxury brand careers.
