If you succeed, we succeed!  Let us assist you in putting your “best foot forward” so you stand out from the competition!

Making a First Impression
The first impression you make will determine the course of your interview. The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one.  That’s why it’s always important to remember to:

  • Dress appropriately
  • Learn as much as you can about the company
  • Extend a firm handshake
  • Smile
  • Have a pleasant demeanor
  • Have upbeat energy and good eye contact

Whether you are dropping off a resume, or heading into an interview, make sure you’re presenting yourself well to everyone involved in the process.  

Your Resume
Not all of our positions require a resume, but if you do have one and you are seeking tips on how to update or improve your resume, these tips can help! 

On average, employers spend less than 30 seconds scanning each resume.  It is important how you present yourself on your resume, as your resume may be used to:

  • Evaluate your education, skills and experience in relation to the position
  • Compare you against your competition
  • Confirm your salary requirements
  • Decide if you come back for a second interview
  • Refer you to another department for other open positions

Make sure that your resume content catches attention and conveys why you are a candidate worth interviewing! Here are five great resume tips:

  • Your resume is about your future, not your past.
  • It’s not a confessional, you don’t have to “tell all”. Stick to what’s relevant and marketable.
  • Don’t write a list of job descriptions. Write achievements!
  • Promote only skills you enjoy using.
  • Be honest. You can be creative, but don’t lie.

The Interview
In a job interview, there are plenty of ways to prove to a hiring manager that you’re a great fit for the role.

After we review your resume and decide if you have the education, skills and experiences that are most relevant to our client’s position, we will invite you to come to one of our offices and meet with a company representative. 

It is important to be on time for an interview.  It is best if you arrive about 15 minutes early.  This will give you time to relax and fill out any paperwork required, if necessary.

Interview Tips:

  • Do some research on the business before the interview
  • Practice interviewing
  • Go alone. Do not take children, family or friends
  • Dress appropriately
  • Greet the employer with a firm handshake
  • Make frequent eye contact
  • Be upbeat and make positive statements
  • Answer questions as directly and honestly as possible.
  • Ask questions, if you have any
  • Smile, be polite, and try to relax
  • Request a business card so you can follow up after your interview.

Remember the following up after the interview may very well set you apart from your competition!
