Candidates: Helpful Hints

We recommend the following to assist you in building a productive relationship with your staffing recruiter:

  • Answer all the recruiter's questions honestly. Level with your recruiter. We are trained to sort out your sales features and will present you in the best possible light.
  • Be realistic about salary expectations. We know the market. We want to assist you in obtaining a salary commensurate with your skills and experience.
  • Don't mistake quantity of interviews for quality. One of the reasons you use a staffing service is to save time. We won't let you interview for jobs for which you're not qualified or interested.
  • Listen to your recruiter's advice. We know our client companies. When we coach you on client culture, personalities, dress codes and idiosyncrasies, believe us.
  • Call your recruiter immediately after every interview. Many misunderstandings have been clarified by timely feedback.
  • Remember, "flexibility" is the key. Tunnel-vision can block you from alternative career opportunities suggested by your recruiter.
  • Be patient. Recruiters cannot create positions. The "right" position for you may not exist today, or even tomorrow. But you're not forgotten because you don't hear from us every day. When the "right" opportunity emerges, be assured we will call you. Though all fees are assumed by the hiring companies, we don't earn a dime unless we place you. Therefore, be assured this is our goal.
  • Keep your recruiter informed where you've interviewed or sent your resume. We don't want to pursue companies that you have already contacted.
  • Communicate with your recruiter. Our goal is to find you the right opportunity, quickly and as conveniently as possible.
