Cupcake15 -I agree that if you are interested in a human resources assistant or a position as a coordinator working in an agency will definitely help you chances.
Many employers know that staffing agency work is hard and if you are successful in that type of environment they know that working for them in a human resource department should be a piece of cake.
Most staffing agencies require candidates with a bachelor’s degree but you don’t have to have previous experience to get hired.
Working with a staffing firm is great to add to a human resources coordinator resume. There is a difference in salary from working for a staffing agency to working directly for one company.
Usually staffing agencies offer a salary and commission, while the human resources coordinator salary is set at around $35,000 to $40,000 a year. This position is much slower paced and many people like the predictable nature of the job.
