Switching jobs can be a stressful experience, but help is available! If you are ready to make a job change right now, you may want to consider getting the support of a staffing service. A job with a staffing agency will allow you to earn a paycheck while giving you the opportunity to:

Friday Services Offers Help to Job Seekers in Western North Carolina

At Friday Services our mission is to bring the right worker to the right job every time. We take your job skills, experience, and interests into account when thinking about what kind of placement might be right for you. We may be able to suggest a job to you that you haven’t thought about before, and then give you an opportunity to try that job out. For example, manufacturing is a growing sector of our economy and industrial employers are offering a lot of good jobs with tremendous growth potential. If you have been interested in beginning a career in manufacturing but haven’t known where to begin, we can help you get an entry-level factory job that will give you the experience you need to advance.

If you know you need to go back to school to achieve greater success in the future, we can help by placing you in a job that will allow you to support your family while you take the time to complete your education or earn certifications. For instance, if you are interested in becoming a CNC Machinist but have not had the necessary training yet, we may be able to place you in another type of Machine Operator position with a local manufacturer. In this case you would gain valuable manufacturing work experience while going to school to earn your CNC Programming Certificate.

A Staffing Job Can Be a Bridge to a Permanent Placement

A job placement through a staffing agency may turn into a permanent position. We can’t guarantee that will happen, but it is a possibility. As the economy has grown stronger and more employers have added jobs, we have seen a rise in the numbers of our workers who are getting offered permanent positions. In fact, the percentage of workers who have gotten permanent employment through our staffing agency increased 135% between 2008 and 2014.
