Temporary Staffing Services offers tips about temporary staffing

December 4, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The hiring process can be daunting — and not just for job seekers. It can be a real challenge for departments and hiring supervisors, too. U-M Temporary Staffing Services has a few tips to help make things easier for everyone.

  • For seekers: Get your foot in the door fast

One of the best ways into a new regular, full-time position is starting as a temp. And the application and hiring process can be very quick, especially for high-demand positions. And, if you impress in your temp role, you may receive an offer to stay. In fact, 30 percent of regular hires come from temp positions.

  • For supervisors: Know your job applicants

Did you know, Temporary Staffing Services can help you learn how well applicants for your regular positions can perform specific skills — from general office aptitude tests, to custom challenges that meet your needs? The office can find the right person, with the right skill set, for you.

  • For departments: Save more money

Compare the costs between Temporary Staffing Services and an outside vendor and you will very often see thousands of dollars in savings — and this is true, even with a $20 rate change this year.

“This is our first rate increase in six years,” said Jennifer Symanns, manager of U-M Temporary Staffing. “We needed to bump our monthly rate up to cover our operating expenses as a self-funded unit. Even still, we can save you a lot of money, time and headaches.”
