Frequently Asked Questions by Job Seekers
1. I have no clue what staffing is. What is a staffing firm?
Good question! Well, a staffing firm functions as the bridge that brings together candidates and companies together. Basically, we match you with the best job for you. Agile Workplace Staffing is a staffing firm that acts as your career partner in helping you find the right opportunity in the market. Unlike other companies, we take the time to listen intently to what you want and need because we know that job and culture fit is essential to your satisfaction. That’s why we’re different from other staffing firms. We’re not concerned about making placements, our priority is finding you a work environment that makes you happy and is conducive for your career growth.
2. What does it mean to work through a staffing firm?
Working through a staffing firm simply means that instead of looking for a job yourself, a staffing firm will do all the work for you. Traditionally, candidates would have to manually search for job openings online or on foot, and then submit their applications to the HR department. By partnering with a staffing firm, you can skip all that process. You’ll simply send over your application and cover letter, give a description of the salary range, benefits, and company culture you want, and then wait for your recruiter’s call about your interview schedule.
3. Is it better to look for a job through a staffing firm?
Because staffing firms have a database of clients and job openings, you’re most likely going to find a job faster and easier versus having to manually search the job market yourself. The main benefit of using a staffing agency to find a job is that you don’t need to start from scratch, instead you’re simply matched with the opportunity that fits your skills and requirements best. Plus, some staffing agencies, like Agile Workplace Staffing, even provide hands-on guidance on how you can best navigate your application process to increase your chances of securing the job.

10. Who is the best staffing firm? Why should I choose Agile Workplace Staffing over other staffing firms?
We are unapologetic about transparency. So, while we’re at the subject, we can’t say that anyone is the best in the field unless we know what standard you’re using to measure “best”. What we can say is this: We’re different because we don’t hide anything from our candidates. When we say we champion transparency, we mean it. Overglamorized or watered-down job descriptions are things our candidates don’t have to worry about. When you give us the privilege of being your career partner, we make sure that you know exactly what’s going on in your application, what the actual job is and its scope, the benefits you can expect, plus any other question you may throw our way. With us, there are no blindside and definitely no unpleasant surprises. We believe that’s the best way our candidates can truly be matched with the right job opportunity.
