For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Phone Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: If I have a posting, please apply and then call me to ensure that I did receive it. If you are just interested in speaking to me about future positions, call me as well; we can talk about what the market is like and how I can help! Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I am impressed by candidates that find ways to demonstrate their skills in addition to speaking about them. This can come in many ways, such as a portfolio, references, assessments, etc. I am always impressed by candidates that pursue me, and follow up with me. While I expect to find candidates and initiate any follow up, it shows me a candidate's dedication & passion when they contact me. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? What's life if you don't live it? What do you like to do in your free time? I enjoy golf, watching sports such as football & wrestling In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? The culture and the people are such quality that I could never leave. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? We celebrate every individual that gets placed at a client, have happy hours and celebrate every milestone a recruiter/account manager hits. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Our employees are passionate, fun-loving and dedicated to the lives & careers of our candidates.

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!
