Name: Lindsey Kepley Title: HR Recruiter Company: NES Rentals

Tell us about your specialties, experience, or the industry you recruit for:

I recruit in the construction industry, specifically for outside and inside salespeople, CDL Drivers, mechanics, and coordinators. I have a strong recruiting background in many skill sets, including military pilots, software designers, and project managers. I make it a point to learn as much as I can about the job and industry I am recruiting in, so that when I talk with interested candidates, I understand everything they’re saying about their experience and how they qualify for the position.

What makes you a unique recruiter? (i.e., why will a candidate want to work with you?)

I am not a typical recruiter. Many recruiters just want you to answer the phone so that they can tell you why you need to come work for their company. I specialize in listening to what is important to you, understanding where you want to go with your career, and why you’re wanting to change jobs. Also, I spend a lot of my time making sure you really understand our jobs and our culture. If you email me with a question, I will likely call you back so that I can answer that question, as well as any others you might have.

Why do you like recruiting?

I love interacting with new people everyday. I also enjoy being a key in helping my branch managers find candidates who they are excited about interviewing and eventually hiring. I consider myself a matchmaker… helping interested job seekers and hiring managers meet.

What do you enjoy doing outside of recruiting? (i.e., hobbies, passions, projects, etc.)

I love being outside. If I could take my desk and put it outside in the sun, I absolutely would. I also love to travel to new places in the United States and try out new restaurants and parks. Lastly, I love to learn new things of many different genres. I like learning how to fix things on my car, network with people just to learn about their jobs and their companies, and taking new classes in my field.

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...
