Need resume and cover letter tips, interview advice, and more? We’ve got your back!
Maybe! Our work is driven by the needs of our employer-clients, and we’re best equipped to help job seekers with experience in one of our specialty areas: Accounting, Financial Services, Footwear & Apparel, Human Resources, Legal, and Office Administration. If your skills and experience are outside these areas, we probably won’t be much help — it’s a bit like a tax attorney trying to assist with your divorce.
Our Contract Temporary roles generally require the same degree of experience as our Direct-Hire roles; the primary difference is duration, rather than skill level. In addition, these roles are usually full-time during normal office hours.
We are probably not the best resource for you at this point. Our employer-clients want to hire people who want their specific job, rather than just any job. You can think of us as 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.
You can decide where you have the most experience, but not to worry. We have a real live person reviewing each incoming resume who will route your information to the specialty recruiter best suited to support your job search. And we work very collaboratively internally, so if your experience spans multiple specialties, you’ll be introduced to the appropriate recruiters during your initial meeting in our office.
No, only one submission is needed. We’ll review your resume generally to determine if we might be a good resource in your job search. If a recruiter reaches out to chat further or schedule an in-person meeting, you can discuss your interest in particular jobs at that point. Once you’ve interviewed with a recruiter, you’ll be considered for all the roles they are working on, so there is no need to submit your resume a second time.
Maybe! But probably not. Career transitions aren’t generally our strongpoint, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Unfortunately, we’re not able to help out with everyone’s search, and if that’s the case, it’s likely that a recruiter won’t be reaching out. But 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 or 3 business days, feel free to chat with us on our website or via email at email@example.com. Our Career Advisor can discuss your job search and offer some direction for resources that might be more helpful.
If you’re working as a Contract Temporary employee, we know you’ll have questions. Learn more here.
Our recruiters are quite busy meeting with jobseekers who have scheduled appointments, so unfortunately they aren’t able to take walk-ins. We encourage you to submit your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org for review by our recruiters, one of whom will reach out to schedule a meeting if they determine that we’d be a good resource in your job search. If you have questions regarding your eligibility either before or after submitting your resume, feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.
