For Job Candidates

You learn so much more about people by actually speaking to people rather than shooting emails back and forth. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I really like seeing a candidate who has grown within a company. I also work in a technical field am very impressed with candidates who can break down what they do to people without technical backgrounds. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: I expect candidates to include update resumes and references with their applications. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Applications to my clients through another agency/recruiter. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes.
