NORCROSS, GA, April 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Birmingham Staffing Agency is seeing a rise in temp jobs for older candidates.
TRC Staffing Services, Inc, a well known Birmingham staffing agency, is discussing the increased number of older workers seen in their offices. In a nation that is haunted by historically high unemployment rates, any opportunity for work can be considered a blessing. This is particularly true for the country's older generation. Job loss and a saturated market of young professionals have made the lives of these people all the more difficult. The number of older workers performing temp labor positions has been steadily increasing for a few years, since the economy took a turn for the worst.
What fields are being affected?
Industries that once prospered are now struggling to keep their doors open, which has led to significant downsizing efforts. Manufacturing fields and other secondary industry companies tend to let go of their older employees first, as they can typically get away with paying younger talent lower wages. According to Tom Bodeep, Senior Vice President for the Birmingham staffing agency, "It is an unfortunate reality, but one that more workers need to be aware of. Our company is dedicated to helping those in need of employment, whatever the circumstances." Staffing agencies like TRC Staffing Services, Inc give workers a way to test the water of new employment. Given that many older people are reluctant to take full time positions, these companies serve to ease the transition back into the workforce.
The main benefit for both parties is that staffing agencies have a larger pool of qualified and experienced candidates. This gives older applicants an edge over younger professionals that may just be starting out; there many good paying positions out there, although most of them do require a bit of new training for older workers. Individuals not well versed in technology or with computers need to brush up on these skills to better their chances. TRC Staffing Services, Inc is a leading Birmingham staffing agency; they have operations in 13 states and have successfully helped thousands of people find employment.
