Staffing Services - Are They Worth It?

I’ve got resumes on file at all the staffing services (aka Freelance Houses) I could find after I parted company with my last company. Overall, they didn’t do me a lick of good. Has anyone else had good experience with them?

I got a lot of talk, some smoke and a few mirrors. I took some tests and proved my mettle but nothing ever came of it. The same thing happened the last time I was between jobs (or about to be between jobs), which leads me to believe that they’re just not for me.

BTW, I'm not in the market. This is an older post that I hoped would spark some commentary but it seems like the blogosphere is dead lately. Almost makes me miss 'eprizer'.

I used to work for a staffing company. You can have the greatest resume out there but if they don't need that skill set then you are out of luck. As soon as one of their clients are interested in you, then you'll become the most important candidate ever.

I've had some success with a company in Livonia called Otterbase. They seem to have a good connection with the Digital community. You should give them a call and see what they say. They are both professional and treat you with respect which is something that most staffers don't do. Good luck.
