Andrea Sugden lives in the Tampa Bay area and works as the senior vice president of U.S. Sales for Adecco, a global staffing firm. In this position, she manages all national accounts.

Adecco staffs positions in many fields and at many levels.
Many college graduates and those who are unemployed are hesitant to take their resume to a staffing agency due to a few widespread yet incorrect fears, including the idea that staffing agencies work almost exclusively with low-paying employers who are only looking to hire on a temporary basis. On the contrary, many large corporations establish permanent ties with staffing companies as a form of strategic outsourcing. Global businesses such as Microsoft, Visa, Continental Airlines, and Starbucks make use of staffing agencies.
Fair, entry-level wages can be found with the help of a staffing professional, as can positions that offer benefits packages and paid time off. Experienced executives can also contact staffing agencies to gauge opportunities in their field of work. Businesses do not simply seek out staffing agencies to fill basic positions, but all available job openings, including high-level positions.
