About Adecco Employment Agency
Adecco is based in Switzerland but has over 6,600 offices in countries all around the globe. Adecco works to help find job seekers find full-time temporary and permanent employment. There are two ways to begin the branch of your job search that Adecco will help you with. You can contact your local Adecco branch directly and go in to meet with a specialist and fill out the information, or you can start the process by filling out the forms online at your own convenience.
Job categories include:
- Accounting & Finance
- Administrative & Clerical
- Call Center & Customer Service
- Creative & Marketing
- Industrial & Manufacturing
- Information Technology
- Medical & Science
- Transportation & Warehousing
With such a wide range of job categories Adecco can help place you within, there's bound to be something for almost anyone willing to put in the time and effort to first fill out the forms and take the tests, then go on potentially multiple interviews to get a job.
Once you decide to work with Adecco and if you live in the United States, you'll either need to start the process online or visit one of more than 900 offices in North America. You can search online at the top of the Adecco website. Once you find a job title that interests you, you can click on that and find a job summary which includes information about whether the job is temporary or permanent, the category it falls into, and the date it was posted.
You'll also get a job description that includes job duties, length of time the company needs someone to fill the position, hours you'll be expected to work, educational and experience requirements, and the type of environment you can expect. You will also get a contact name within Adecco.
What you will not find is the name of the employer. You will have to contact Adecco for that information, then be interviewed by them in order to determine whether you would be a good fit for the company whose ad you viewed. If you apply online, you can upload your resume and answer a few questions. You may then be contacted by an Adecco representative.
You may not be aware of it, but sometimes employment agencies offer benefits in order to get you by until you make it to permanent employee status within a company. You can get:
- Medical coverage
- 401(k) plan
- Direct deposit
- Service bonus
- Paid holidays
Finding work through an employment agency may lead to a better job than you can find on your own. Remember, not all jobs are listed in the classified ads, and not all employers will give your unsolicited resume the attention it deserves. Working with an organization like the Adecco employment agency is a way to open yourself up to more job openings without giving in and taking a job with no benefits at all.
Adecco, of course, aims to assist employers, too. Their services include staffing, workforce solutions, and career transition and outplacement services.
- Staffing: This service means employers get the most qualified candidates for the job without ever having to take the time to interview the ones who wouldn't fit in as well.
- Workforce solutions: This includes reducing costs, boosting productivity, cutting risks, and more.
- Career transition and outplacement services: Within this category, employers get help transitioning individuals while keeping their levels of productivity up. They also get help identifying leaders and retain their best employees.
