The staffing industry came about during WWII when there was increased need for workers due to men and boys being drafted into the war. With an influx of open jobs appearing overnight, the staffing industry was born to help mitigate and expedite the hiring process. Since then, the industry has grown exponentially and the potential of working with staffing agencies has expanded from solely finding candidates to fill roles to helping with administrative duties such as payroll.

The economy is constantly changing unexpectedly. One day, businesses are tripling their workforce and the next they are cutting it in half. With uncertainties about where the economy will take us next, you may become responsible for making decisions to drastically change the business. Upon completing a structural analysis of the business, it could make more sense to have fewer permanent employees or fewer employees in general. A common and effective solution to the ever-changing economy and workforce is rightsizing your business.

In a way, they feel a bit like a blind date where you and the hiring manager are trying to determine if there is a “fit.” Of course, there is plenty of information available online about how to provide an answer to common questions, but you must also be prepared to be faced with strange questions—proverbial curveballs—and be able to think quickly, providing a response that is appreciated by the interviewer.
