For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Phone Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: I am really open to any form of application, whether it be a LinkedIn message, an E-mail or a phone call. The important thing is that we get in contact! Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Of course, a solid consistent background is something I find impressive. I have a lot of respect and admiration for people who know what they want to, set goals, and take the time within each company to achieve these goals. A resume can be very telling about a person. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Just include the basics (contact information, professional summary, professional experience, and education)! Another thing that hiring managers hate, is when there is a lot of "fluff" within a resume. I hear this feedback a lot from my managers. Keep it simple :). Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Including information that is false, will result in a disqualification. Remember that agencies (like mine) and our clients do reference checks and background checks. Honesty is the best policy. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like there's nobody listening, And live like it's heaven on earth.” -William W. Purkey What do you like to do in your free time? I live in Marin County, CA which has some of the best views of the SF Bay Area! So hiking, and anything outdoors is my go-to. I am also a bit of a "gym rat!" I have to keep my sanity somehow! In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? Since we are privately held, we are nimble and I have a bigger opportunity to make an impact. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? We laugh a LOT! In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Smart!

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.

We complied a simple list of what we find to be the most common questions our coaches get about resumes. We hope you find this helpful.

Let's start with the basics...
