For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email or call me to check in with the corresponding Client Account Manager. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: The ability not only to speak about what you do but the ability to explain what you do to laypeople. In today's market, we are not only our skills but our ability to impart that knowledge upon other professionals. Confidence is not only about how you carry yourself but in how you speak to your knowledge base. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Comprehensive Work Experience with a detailed description of duties, skills obtained, technologies used (if applicable), etc. Education (Where you obtained the certification or diploma, When you obtained it, and What kind of certificate you obtained.) Highlights of where the applicant has previously used the skillset requested (Java Developer, Project Manager, Executive Assistant) within the resume or within a Cover Letter overview. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered:
  • Poor grammar/mechanics
  • Poorly parsed resumes (Indeed/Craigslist)
  • Certifications/Education NOT listed on resume
  • Resumes without detail. The age of the one-page resume is over. With all of our data beginning and ending in digital form these days, there's no rule to resume length anymore. On the contrary, companies, especially in the technology sector want to know what you've been doing since day one of your career. Give them all the details relevant to your position and amend the portions of your resume that directly correlate to the requested skillset to reflect ALL of your experience with that technology or methodology.
Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "Well-behaved women seldom make history." -Laurel Thatcher Ulrich What do you like to do in your free time? I'm a movie-buff, foodie, lover of all things liberal, and cats! In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? My co-workers make coming to work feel like I'm coming to my second home. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? If we're not laughing over our penchant for hiring "cat ladies" (we're up to 4 in house) or overeating on "Free Food Fridays" we're always up for a bad joke or quick improv sketch about life between co-workers. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? CyberSearch is a laid-back company who takes staffing seriously.

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?

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!
