No Easier Time to Find a Job
There is no better time to find a job than now. With labor shortages at an all-time high, even trainable unskilled people are at a premium. Companies need people.
Now, more than ever, companies are eager to train entry-level people. If you have a passion to learn with an employment history suggesting job stability, jobs waiting for you.
This is good news for job seekers! Your ability to out-shine your competition for the job just became easier!
Why? In today’s ranks of the unemployed, many job seekers lack even the most basic work ethics.
When completing your application, consider how the person comparing your app might interpret the information you entered or the lack thereof. Imagine you are the recruiter comparing a dozen different applications against yours. Realistically, what skills or attributes would you be looking for in a person if you were spending your own money?
- Did you take this opening serious enough to complete all areas on the application?
- Do you include anything in your job history demonstrating desirable attributes such as a strong work ethic or job stability?
- Does your listed employment history reflect job duties and skills required for the job?
- After comparing applications, why would someone choose you over the other eleven other people?
This is an easy competition to win if you take the time to do it correctly. Company hiring managers do analyze and compare applications against one another. They either get them directly from a job seeker or they get them through a staffing firm. Either way, it is your application that earns you an audience. The advantage of using a staffing agency is only one application is needed. One great application will get you introduced to a multitude of companies, many of which only go through agencies to hire.
No job yet? Ask your agency for a consultation. Revisit the condition of your application and update it where necessary to achieve “Killer App” status. Do this, and people will quickly be congratulating you on your new job!
