For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: When I tell people I’m a recruiter, most of the time they have no idea what my positions entails. I think the biggest misconception people have about my job and my employer is that we get paid to help individuals find jobs. In reality, we work for businesses and get paid to find the companies qualified, potential hires. Consider me another resource in your job search. Send me your resume and if I see a position that might be a fit for your experience and salary range, I will contact you. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Resumes – your resume needs to catch my attention and the attention of other hiring officials – so make sure it’s in tip top shape: Well formatted. Be careful if your objective doesn’t match the job you are currently applying for. Don’t just apply to every job you see – make sure your experience is relevant to the job qualifications. Most of us prefer Chronological resumes that show the length of time you were employed, and even more helpful the reason for departure (i.e. laid off; left for advancement) – you don’t have to list dismissed or fired but if the reason is not negative list it. Be Transparent. Make sure your resume and if you have another online business presence (i.e. LinkedIn that it is up to date). Don’t be afraid to accept a LinkedIn initiation from a Recruiter; even if you are not looking today – you don’t know when you might want to reach out to them; and sometimes even though you didn’t think you were in the market, they sometimes bring to your attention amazing opportunities that are just too good to pass us. It’s all about networking. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Contact information, geographic preference and desired salary range Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Lying on a resume. Saying you have a degree when you do not. Saying you held a position that you did not. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes
