Are You Sitting on A Pot of Gold? How to Create an Additional Revenue Stream with Online Staffing

Everyone who works in staffing, from the president of the company down to the recruiters, understands that it is a lot of work to screen, interview, and enter every possible candidate into the database. Even after all the time invested in the process, not everyone you meet will be a fit for an open job. Staffing is often a game of being in the right place at the right time. The candidate might be in your office at the right moment for a hot open position while others are looking for something different like telecommuting or part time work. 

How do you keep track of stellar candidates who aren't a good match for your current available jobs? 

On the flip side, staffing services are often called upon by clients for short term projects or immediate needs. This begins the process of "smiling and dialing" everyone in the database to see if just a few will be available or open for the opportunity. This can be particularly time consuming and other important work will go undone as recruiters scramble to fill these jobs.

What if you could create a self-service database of those candidates?

These candidates are often available and eager to do work on a short term project or on a moment's notice. Not only would you be able to reach out to candidates who may otherwise languish in your employee pool but you can offer an added value to your clients by giving them an opportunity to connect  with these employees at their time of greatest need. This can also help engage your pool of candidates as you continue to search for their perfect permanent career opportunity. 

Imagine giving someone the possibility to do additional work to make some extra income as they wait for their right permanent job opportunity to become available. Each of your candidate's has skills that can help your clients on a temporary or as needed basis. They could have experience in anything from graphic design to data entry and everything in between. 

Online staffing revenue is projected to reach $3 billion in 2014.
