Job Seeker FAQs

You've Got Questions.

We've Got Answers.

Maybe! We’re driven by the needs of our clients (your employers), and we’re best equipped to help job seekers with experience in one of our specialty areas: 

  • Accounting 
  • Administration & Operations
  • Financial Services 
  • Footwear & Apparel 
  • Human Resources 
  • Legal (support roles and attorneys)
  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Executive Leadership

If your skills and experience are outside these areas, we probably won’t be much help (think of it like a tax attorney trying to assist with your divorce).

Whether you’re seeking roles in office, fully remote, or hybrid, your experience and credentials will be the primary factor in whether we’ll be a good resource in your job search. That being said, our clients are typically focused on job seekers who are local to their geographic area (enabling them to work a hybrid schedule or be in-office, as well as tapped into the unique local market). If your primary goal is to find any type of remote work, we may not be the best resource for you.  

Our Contract Work roles generally require the same degree of experience as our other roles; the biggest difference is duration rather than skill level.  

We’re probably not the best resource for you at this moment in your career. Our clients (your employers) want to hire people who want their specific job (rather than just any job).  

We’re a lot like matchmakers: we want to help make the best match possible for both the employer and employee. That process can take a while, even for well-qualified job seekers.  

Please do check out the resources we’ve created to make your search easier!  

You can decide where you have the most experience, but we’ll let you in on our inner workings: we have a real live human reviewing each incoming resume. This person will route your information to the specialty recruiter best suited to support your job search.  

We’re a highly collaborative team, so if your experience spans multiple specialties, our recruiters will work together to determine where you fit best.  

Only one submission is needed! 

Regardless of which job you apply for, once you’re in, you’re in. We’ll review your resume generally to determine if we’ll be a good resource in your job search.  

If a recruiter reaches out to chat further, you can discuss your interest in particular jobs. Once you’re in our system, you’ll be considered for all the roles your recruiter is working on.  

Career transitions aren’t really our strongpoint, however, especially if you’re coming from a field that we don’t work in at all.  

If you see a particular job on our website that aligns with your background, please do apply! If you don’t hear from anybody, feel free to follow up with us at [email protected].  

Even if we’re not able to help with your career transition, our Career Advisor can offer some suggestions for how to optimize your search.  

We’re best equipped to help job seekers who already live in the Portland area. If your move date is coming up soon, please do reach out to get the process started (and let us know that you’ll be relocating).  

If you don’t yet have definite plans to move, feel free to reach out on our website chat to discuss what it’s like to relocate to Portland.  

If it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to help you in your job search, a recruiter probably won’t reach out.  

However, we know that you came to us looking for help and we hate to leave people with nothing! If you’ve submitted your resume and haven’t heard back after 2-3 business days, feel free to chat with us on our website or via email at [email protected]. Our Career Advisor can help you assess your job search and offer direction for resources that might be more helpful.
