For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Please feel free to email me with your questions and concerns. I get busy and I have a lot of candidates that I am working with. I don't mind getting an email follow up, just don't call me and email me every day. Once a week is enough. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Honesty. Integrity. Being themselves. Being responsive. It's not just about what is on paper. How a candidate presents themselves is very important. I'm a pretty laid back person and I don't want to have to chase a candidate. If you're not interested, then say so. If you are and we need to work on your resume then do so. I partner with my candidates to help them put their best foot forward to be the one that gets hired. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Complete up to date resume. Compensation that is desired. How far will they travel? Relo? If they want to add a cover letter , that is fine. But it needs to be geared towards the position desired. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Being unresponsive. Not carefully reviewing the job description to see if they're a match for the position. Poorly constructed resume. Resumes need to be achievement based and be relevant to the position applying for. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes
