You, along with thousands of others, may have found yourself laid off due to the coronavirus. If you are reading this, wondering if you should start up your job search or wait for that unemployment check to come in, we want to share just a few reasons why getting back to work is better for your paycheck and your well-being.
We pay weekly! Undoubtedly we can get you a paycheck before the employment department can pay out benefits. If you need money now, come to work.
The process for filing for Unemployment Claims, and regularly reporting to the employment department is cumbersome and time consuming. You can avoid that and collect a paycheck each week, and feel good about your contributions to an employer and society.
We are seeing unprecedented amounts of people filing for unemployment. This will inevitably cause delays, and possibly even shortages, and lapses in benefits. We are offering financial stability that is consistent, and reliable without all the paperwork, and difficulty of filing and maintaining an unemployment claim.
The most that someone can claim for unemployment is 26 weeks per year. Once that is exhausted they will no longer receive benefits that year. The economy and job market may be worse at that time. It would make sense to take jobs as they come to save unemployment as a safety net when they need it, and not use it when they don’t.
Start a job today to work toward a future of financial growth, opportunity, and self-sustained stability. Temporary work is a foot in the door with an employer. Prove yourself and the opportunities will come. When you work with a staffing agency, you have the opportunity to work towards a career. Unemployment, on the other hand, offers no opportunity to build upon.
As the economy goes into a recession, and employees are being laid off in mass, it will create a job market with a high level of competition amongst applicants. We will soon return to a time when there will be more applicants than jobs. In that environment an employee that has kept busy, taking temporary assignments, maintaining their skills and learning new ones, will be a far more competitive candidate when looking for work as the economy begins to rebound. Not only that, but working with a staffing agency increases your network as you look for a new job.
This can be an opportunity for you to try out new jobs, new industries, new employers, and explore their opportunities while waiting to hear back on their prior employment. You might find an opportunity that was better than the job that you had! If you haven’t had time to explore different job options while you were working, look at this time as an opportunity to try out different industries and positions. You may not get this chance again.
The level of uncertainty in the job market and economy is high right now. Regular employment is offering stability and security in a time where that is hard to come by. Unemployment claims have a maximum benefit, and limited duration. With determination and patience, a career can offer limitless opportunity and growth!
