For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Initial applications should be sent via email with a follow-up two days later via telephone if you have not already heard from me. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Transparency is key. I will absolutely be transparent with you and I would appreciate the same. It is impressive when someone wants to find their best job, not just their next job. A new position is not something to be taken lightly and I am impressed by the go-getters who take their job search seriously. If you agree to an interview, do not cancel it. Things do come up from time to time but be prepared from the beginning to take whatever steps are necessary to be available. An interview is your first impression with the client, make it a good one. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: A candidate should always include their resume to be considered for a job. It may sound obvious, but often times, I will just get a simple email stating they are interested in a specific position and not attach a resume. There is no way for me to review a candidates specific qualifications as they relate to the position without reviewing a candidate's resume. Your resume should be simple yet descriptive. For each position, make sure to include, the company name, your job title, length of employment with month/year from and month/year to, and a description of responsibilities. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: There is no one specific thing that would disqualify a candidate from being consider besides the mere fact that they do not meet the minimum skills and experience (qualifications) my client is looking for. My role as a recruiter is to be a match maker for both sides so that both parties are prepped for success. If the candidate does not meet the minimum qualifications, they are already set up for potential failure. I do not want to see my candidates fail. What I am here for, is to make sure both the candidate and the client are a great fit so that both can be successful in their endeavors. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody" What do you like to do in your free time? Spend time with my family which includes my husband and my Great Dane. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? We work hard and play hard. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? We find the time to laugh with and at each other! In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Sincere, honest and hard working.

All work and no play can create a tense and unwelcoming environment. Studies have shown that employers that offer additional perks have employees that are happier and more loyal to their place of employment. If you are looking for an employer that acknowledges how important it is to give its employees a place to de-stress and bond with their co-workers, check out these companies!
