Get selected value of a dropdown

Hello, I want to get the value of the selected item. With the code below I’m just getting the value that’s already there instead of the one I choose, when I click again I get the value I chose before and not the current one I clicked. I also want to send the correct value chosen as a hidden field is this possible?

$(‘.staffing’).click(function() {

let value = $(‘select#staffing-services option:selected’).val();
