Re-Launching the Employment Service to Provide Candidate Referrals to Members!
After an eight-year hiatus, we are excited to re-introduce our printing and graphic arts industry Employment Service. Through this service, we proactively seek job candidates and match them with members’ current job openings. Available only to PIASC members, the Employment Service is one of the many valuable benefits included as part of the their membership dues.
“Our no-cost staffing services save our members significant time and money,” states Kristy Villanueva, Director of Member Services. “All it takes is one phone call to one of our experienced recruiters for members to avoid the time and expense of advertising job openings, the hassle of wading through resumes of unqualified candidates, and the exorbitant fees charged by traditional staffing agencies.”
employment service is industry-specific and takes advantage of our Association’s extensive knowledge of the needs of printers and other graphic arts industry firms. For employers, the staffing services begin with a brief telephone interview to give the recruiter a clear understanding of what the company is looking for. If the employer does not have a written job description for the position, we can provide sample industry-specific job descriptions to be modified or used as is.
We advertise the job opening on social media channels and actively work to fill the position for the member firm. Because we are actively working to get the word out that these jobs and opportunities are available, members who wish to recruit students and new graduates can also use our recruiters as their “face” at the campus events that we attend. Our recruiters screen eligible candidates through an internal process to determine if they have the knowledge and skills for a given position, are ready to start working, and are looking for compensation that is within the range of what the employer is offering. Once a match is made, we make the connection and let the employer take it from there.
“We want our members to look at us as their first option when they need staffing assistance,” shares Brett Chase, Senior Associate of Recruiting. “Our Employment Service is very similar to a regular recruiting agency. The difference is that we have a clear understanding of the printing industry’s typical positions and shifts…and, of course, our services are provided to members at no additional cost.”
