Insights and advice about jobs and hiring in the Lehigh Valley.

Is It Hard to Find a Job in Lehigh Valley?

You’re searching for warehouse jobs hiring in Easton, PA, and the surrounding area, but you haven’t found much that really interests you. Even when you do apply for a job, you’ve been hearing crickets lately.

This isn’t surprising, considering the unemployment rate in the Lehigh Valley was 13.9%, as of July 2020. Many companies are currently in the midst of a hiring freeze, and those that are still hiring are understandably overwhelmed with applications for every open position.

Consequently, it’s never been more helpful to have a recruiter on your side. Here’s a few benefits you’ll enjoy by working with a staffing firm to find your next warehouse job.

4 Ways a Staffing Agency Can Boost Your Warehouse Job Search

Find Out About Unadvertised Positions

Every company doesn’t post job openings publicly. Many hire exclusively through a recruiter, so without this connection, you won’t even know they’re available. This could cause you to miss out on a career-changing warehouse opportunity.

Enjoy Flexible Opportunities

You need a warehouse job that fits your life. A recruiter can help you find an opportunity that works for you — i.e., a temporary job that allows you to earn money for the holidays or part-time shift work that complements your kids’ school schedule — so you can achieve the balanced lifestyle you deserve.

Get Help Preparing for Interviews

Job interviews are your opportunity to really sell yourself to the hiring manager, but they can also be incredibly nerve-wracking. Your recruiter will work with you to prepare responses to common interview questions, give you background information on the company, provide guides to dress to impress, and more, so you can feel confident and shine on the big day.

Learn From Valuable Post-Interview Feedback

In most cases, post-interview feedback consists of finding out you got the job or didn’t. This is different when you work with a recruiter because they frequently have relationships with hiring managers.

Consequently, if you’re not hired, they’re often willing to provide your recruiter with examples of what you did well and where there’s room to improve. This will help you learn and grow, so you can improve for your next interview.
