HONESTY | INTEGRITY | ACCOUNTABILITY
Finding a job is a full-time job can be challenging in any economy, but with the right attitude, job qualifications, and our help, we can match quality candidates with great opportunities. Below are some answers to common questions by our job seekers.
Ensure you have completed our application and sent your resume to your recruiter prior to your interview. We recommend testing your camera and microphone prior to joining the interview to ensure no technical issues or delays. Lastly, please dress in appropriate interviewing attire.
Length of time interviewing will depend on the level of your experience and skills, however you should plan to set aside roughly 30 minutes give or take depending on the above.
This will depend on what type of job you are seeking. Your recruiter will inform you if any testing is required after your interview.
The benefits are limitless! You know much more about a company/position by going through our agency, as we will typically know details such as why the position is available, an approximate salary range, office culture, growth possibilities, etc. The longer we have worked with our client companies the more information we will have to aid you in your decision making.
Yes, all recruiters have experience with resumes and will help you pair it down, or arrange in such a way that we get the best results possible.
There is never any cost to a job seeker working with our agency.
Please list managers and supervisors that you directly reported to, who can speak to your work habits. The more recent these managers are, the better. Coworkers references are quite often not accepted by clients.
We can’t possibly promise a deadline, but we can promise we will do everything humanly possible to secure a position for you. We certainly have had times that someone comes to interview with us, we send them right over to our client and have them hired in the same day. We’d like to guarantee that will always happen, but all interview processes are different, and dependent on our client companies’ timelines.
We certainly have a great track record of putting a temporary in a position that was only going to be “temp” and then the company sees what a good employee they are and they make room for them permanently. It is a story we tell daily and encourage anyone that is unemployed to look at temporary opportunities as a possible pipeline to your next permanent position.
There are various reasons a company will choose to work with a staffing firm/agency, most often they work with us to weed out those that are not qualified. Surprisingly, 80% or greater of ad responders are not qualified for the job they answer; this is an enormous task for any hiring manager to take on.
Agencies also are in the market 365 days of the year networking with excellent candidates, some of which are not on the job boards and use us exclusively. Thus, the companies that call us can see the talent that isn’t answering the ads. They may be a more passive job seeker, not desperate to find a job, but trusting we will call them when the right opportunity comes along.
Employers want the truth with enough detail to make them understand, but not enough to where the conversation turns entirely negative.
Say, for instance, you want to leave your current job because your boss yells and bullies you and other employees. You probably think “I certainly can’t say that,” when in fact, most employers would understand that reason. You may want to explain a little, give an example of this and how it affects you.
Lying or trying to come up with an “untruth” is never acceptable. Be honest but make sure you filter your responses. A new employer doesn’t need an enormous amount of detail, just get them in the ballpark.
