For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Please contact me via phone for any questions regarding job opportunities, or email me your resume! Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I'm impressed with candidates that are not only highly skilled, but who also exhibit kindness during the initial phone conversation, and passion for the opportunity they're applying for. Kindness is HUGE, and first impressions matter so much - whether it be personal or professional. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Candidates must include a resume that's easy to read, and shows they've taken the time to review and proofread, prior to sending. It can be confusing when a resume or cover letter is sent to me, but is specifically tailored for another company. Please remember why you're applying to this position, and what makes YOU the best candidate to join our team! Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Candidates typically are disqualified if they don't meet the minimum requirements listed on the job posting and/or if they speak or act unprofessionally during the interview process. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Business people discuss risk management during a work meeting

I spoke to a senior business leader who talked about how the thoughts of navigating the risks associated with some of the business processes he currently manages keep him awake.
