Many people choose to go at it alone when looking for a job. They spend hours upon hours crafting the perfect resume, sending out application after application, and crossing their fingers that they will hear back from potential employers. While this may work for some people, it is not the best strategy for everyone. There are several benefits of working with an employment agency that most people may not know.
Staffing agencies have a wide network of potential candidates.
Hiring an employment agency can help in finding the best talent for businesses. Staffing agencies have access to a large pool of talented individuals looking for jobs. This can save both time and money while finding the best candidate. Staffing agencies can help find the best talent by screening candidates, conducting interviews, and checking references. This gives businesses a better chance of finding the right person for the job.
Staffing agencies can save money.
While staffing agencies can charge a fee to place employees, the fees are generally lower than those charged by most private-sector employers. Employers also pay for the cost of recruiting and training new hires, so when someone hires through an agency, they don’t have to worry about those expenses. They still have to pay the employee’s salary and benefits, but this is usually less expensive than recruiting and training a new employee themselves.
More Effective Recruitment Process
An employment agency will dedicate all its resources to finding the best candidates for a company. They will use their expertise and experience to understand what a company is looking for and ensure that they source candidates who are a good fit. In addition, they will also make sure that they do not send them any unsuitable applicants. Companies don’t have to spend time sifting through applications that aren’t suitable for their job roles or company culture.
They Will Handle All Paperwork
Hiring an employment agency means that they will take care of all the paperwork and hiring new employees. The paperwork can be quite intensive, especially if a company hires someone overseas. It also takes a lot of time, so having an agency handle it will save many valuable hours that could be used to do other tasks instead.
Improved Quality of Hire
An employee hired directly from the internet, in the newspaper, or through an online job ad is not guaranteed to be a good fit for the company. Interviewing potential candidates can be difficult if there is no one on staff to do so. Using an employment agency, on the other hand, the candidates are screened by professionals who are only sending over those who meet the criteria. Thus, working with an agency increases the chances of finding someone who is a good fit for the business over recruiting on their own.
Hiring an employment agency is a great way to reduce costs while finding the best talent for a business. Staffing agencies have a wide network of potential candidates, and they are experts in the hiring process. Using them offers a risk-free way to find temporary or permanent employees.

Amid the AI hype, don’t forget about no-code
No-code startup Softr, which allows its customers to build apps from their existing data, announced Tuesday that it has added Google Sheets to its integration list.
Previously, Softr focused on Airtable databases. Its move to support data from Google’s spreadsheet product likely expands its potential customer pool. Even before that expansion, CEO Mariam Hakobyan told TechCrunch+ that her company grew its annual recurring revenue 3x from December 2021 to December 2022.
Softr’s quick revenue expansion is a good reminder that while the tech world seems completely consumed by all things AI, there’s quite a lot of work going on in other areas that are worth keeping an eye on.
That said, there is an interesting connection between AI and no-code worth writing down: Both are potentially great expanders of human capability. AI tooling could operate as a second brain of sorts for the digitally busy, and no-code services may allow nondevelopers to build the tools they need to complete their work. In both cases, the genres of new tech development have a shot at helping regular folks do a lot more, more quickly and often at a low cost.
Something else that modern AI tooling and no-code share is accessibility. Softr, for example, grew its base of signed-up users from 35,000 to 150,000 in 2022. That’s really quite a lot for a service that was, until recently, Airtable-specific. On the AI side, I don’t need to reiterate just how much market demand there is for modern LLM tooling.
Let’s dig into Softr’s progress since we last covered the company and chat about what we can learn about no-code progress as a method of building more accessible software.
Softr, no-code and empowering the regulars
Ask anyone who works at a company that builds software and isn’t part of the engineering or product orgs how long it will take them to get something built for their own needs. Without even making Jira ticket jokes, we all know what the answer will be. And to a degree, the standard situation makes sense: What nondeveloper employees need is often pretty basic software, and expensive engineers need to focus on the company’s core offering not internal tooling.
Twitter’s legacy blue checkmark era is officially over
Twitter appears to have officially killed off its legacy blue checkmarks, one of the last remaining vestiges of the pre-Elon Musk owner era.
The legacy blue checks, which Twitter doled out to journalists, celebrities and other public officials for free to help curb impersonations and spam, were supposed to end April 1.
Musk took to Twitter on April 11 — days after the legacy checkmarks should have disappeared — to shift the end date to April 20 or 4/20. Yes, that’s the day when folks honor weed because Twitter is now owned by a middle schooler.
With the legacy checkmarks gone, Twitter will have verification marks only for paid users and businesses as well as government entities and officials. Now, if a user sees a blue checkmark and clicks on it, the label reads: “This account is verified because they are subscribed to Twitter Blue and verified their phone number.”
Autotech Ventures’ new $230M mobility fund adds fintech, circular economy to its investment strategy
Autotech Ventures will use its newly closed $230 million fund to expand beyond its foundation of early-stage ground transportation startups and invest in what the firm believes are the next big opportunities in automotive and mobility.
Fintech, logistics, supply chain and the circular economy are at the top of the list.
The $230 million fund, its third since launching in 2017, will be used to invest in seed through Series C mobility-related startups, according to the company. A mixture of financial and corporate LPs, including Allison Transmission, American Axle, Iochpe-Maxion and Shell participated in the fund.
“We’re still a ground transportation-focused firm and we have a very similar strategy [with this fund],” Alexei Andreev, Autotech Ventures managing director told TechCrunch. “On a high-level, it’s same as Fund 1 and Fund 2. However, one of the fastest areas of growth is SaaS-enabled fintech. Auto commerce is inefficient and there are large pockets of profit to capture.”
The firm is particularly interested in transportation-related fintech ventures that are poised to grow during a recession.
“We made a prediction that sooner or later there will be a recession and we identified areas that benefit when the economy softens, Andreev said, noting that this latest fund invested in Yendo, a Dallas-based startup (formerly known as Otto) that lets customers borrow against their vehicles at the same interest rate as standard credit cards.
Autotech Ventures’ previous fintech investments include U.K.-based buy now, pay later startup Bumper and Carpay, a buy here, pay here loan servicing SaaS platform for car dealers.
Andreev said the firm is also investigating investment opportunities in the circular economy, a nascent industry focused on finding ways to reuse materials and products. Circular economy startups have garnered an increasing amount of attention and investment as automakers transition away from gas-powered vehicles and towards EVs.
Autotech Ventures is also cautiously wading into generative AI, although Andreev was quick to note that the company has not made any investments in that area.
Autotech has more than $500 million under management and has invested in more than 40 companies.
Some of the firm’s investments include computer vision startup DeepScale (which was acquired by Tesla), Lyft, used vehicle marketplace operator Frontier Car Group, Drover, Outdoorsy, Swvl, parking app SpotHero and Xnor.ai, which Apple acquired in January 2020. Five of those startups have gone public, including indie Semiconductor and Volta Charging.
