I’m a College Student—What Can Staffing Companies Do for Me?

Staffing companies have something for everyone.

College students have a lot to worry about—classes, homework, quizzes, tests, extracurricular activities, and of course, trying to maintain some semblance of a social life.

Combine all of that with looking for your first post-university job, and life can get hectic.

Luckily, Express Employment Professionals is here to help. We’re a staffing company, which means it’s our mission to put people to work. If you haven’t considered a staffing company before, here are a few reasons why you should start now.

Part-Time/Summer Jobs

Need a summer job to help keep up with expenses but not sure how your skillset fits in? Or maybe you’re looking for a part-time job to help with expenses during the semester?

Staffing companies can help. When you work with a recruiter, they help you find a job so you don’t have to spend time searching online. These jobs can range from industrial to an office setting and everything in between, so you’re sure to find something you’re qualified for.


Signing with a staffing company frequently involves an interview process. There’s often a phone interview, and then an actual in-office interview after that.

When you interview with a staffing company, you’re interviewing for a real job. You don’t want the first time you interview to be after you graduate. Start now and you’ll know what to do in the future.


Competition is fierce, and an HR recruiter is much more likely to go with a candidate who demonstrates more experience on their resume.

Working with Express prior to graduation can get you experience in a variety of industries. We offer both professional and industrial staffing, so you’re sure to find something that interests you.

Many of our clients also hire associates full-time, so that’s an option as well.

Double the Job Search

Staffing companies can also help after you graduate. Think of it this way—if you had a magical genie that could let you have two times the job search power without paying anything, would you do it? You bet you would! That’s what staffing companies can do. Just let your recruiter know what types of jobs you’re interested in, give them your resume, and keep job searching like you normally do. If they find something, they’ll let you know!

If any of this interests you, find your nearest Express office location using our online locator, or register online. Download the ExpressJobs app on the App Store or GooglePlay to quickly find jobs near you.
