We’ve discovered a lot of people outside of the staffing industry know very little about staffing. This is surprising considering U.S. staffing revenue will hit $160 billion in 2018, up from $126.8 billion in 2012, according to Staffing Industry Analysts. Here’s a question I’ve been asked more than a few times: “Do staffing companies only staff unskilled, temporary work?” Some do yes, but it’s an enormous industry.

Employment and placement services staff all kinds of positions (full-time, permanent, contract-to-hire, etc.), it doesn’t matter what your expertise is—there’s probably a position— and staffing company for you.
