Job Seekers

Seeking employment is no easy task no matter how qualified you are or how much experience you may have. Our goal is to work closely with candidates in order to determine their specific needs and to match their needs, as well as their skills and experience, with an employer.

We care about the people that we represent. It’s important to us that the match fits the needs of both the job seeker and the employer.

One of the reasons job seekers come to us is because we communicate clearly and provide realistic expectations. WE ARE NOT A RESUME SERVICE NOR DO WE SIMPLY PUSH YOUR RESUME AROUND. We market your skills, strengths and accomplishments to companies and spend time coaching and preparing you for the that first interview so there are no surprises. We will also get the answers you need to make a sound decision.

The following are a few basic tips that we provide to all job seekers:

Job Interviewing Tips        

  • Always research the background of the company and the person(s) you will be meeting. You should be familiar with their web site and the leadership team.

  • Come to the interview with a pen, spare resumes, and a reference sheet.

  • Dress appropriately. Dress for the interview, not for the job. Wear something that’s not too casual or too extravagant.

  • Leave the cell phone in the car or be sure it’s silenced.

  • Prepare a two-three-minute personal history that includes information about your academia, business, personal and social background before the interview.

  • Be enthusiastic and maintain proper demeanor. Offer a firm handshake, lean slightly forward during the interview, and maintain direct eye contact.

  • Always use facts to sell your background and never embellish – if you are hired off the basis of something that’s not true, it will come back to bite you.

  • Have reasons for why you want the job and why you see yourself as a good fit.

  • Avoid speaking negatively about past employers or discussing past personality conflicts.

  • Do not interrogate the interviewer or ramble.
