The Job Market Could Heat up This Summer

The weather is already heating up. Could the job market be next?

Reasons You Should Find a Job NOW

Under the CARES Act, the federal government has been offering an additional $600 in weekly compensation to everyone receiving state unemployment benefits. Although businesses have begun reopening, many workers have chosen to stay home and continue collecting their boosted benefits.

That boost is set to expire at the end of July.

Once additional federal benefits dry up, experts predict a flood of job seekers in the market. As massive numbers of job seekers begin vying for the same openings, competition for the best jobs will heat up.

Our advice?

Find a job now, before your additional benefits run out.

Here are just a few of the ways a national staffing and employment agency like PrideStaff can help you:

  • Beat the rush.
    As businesses continue reopening, many come directly to PrideStaff for their temporary and direct hiring needs. We can put you to work quickly, making your job search shorter and much less stressful.
  • Earn money as a temporary associate while you search for a direct job.
    Unlike a traditional 40-hour job, temping affords you greater control over your calendar. You can build enough flexibility into your schedule to conduct your job search, network and more. At the same time, you can earn a steady paycheck, giving yourself a little “breathing room” to take your time during your search.
  • Find an opportunity in a safe work environment.
    PrideStaff works with employers to ensure they provide safe, compliant environments for our temporary associates. If you accept an assignment through us, rest assured it will be with an employer who follows established protocols.
  • Minimize your employment gap – while showcasing your work ethic.
    The sooner you return to work, the shorter your gap will be. What’s more, getting back to work before the end of July demonstrates that you’re self-motivated, proactive and responsible (qualities all employers look for in their staff).
  • Get your foot in the door with your dream employer.
    Have you always wanted to work for a certain employer or change the direction of your career? Now is a great time to explore your options. Working as a temporary associate is a great way to enter a new field or go to work for your dream company. If an employer is impressed by your performance on assignment, they can work with us to transition you to a full-time, direct role with their company.
