THE BEST WAY TO WORK WITH US
Career development is a serious process. If you use an opportunity that we present to you simply to “shop” or to try to establish your market value, you are doing yourself a disservice and wasting everyone’s time. There are less risky and more cost-efficient ways to establish your worth. In exploring a career opportunity with a Talent Connectors advisor, keep some important points in mind:
- Be honest and share not only your career aspirations and values, but also any obstacles to consideration of an opportunity.
- If you have concerns, tell us in a timely manner so that we can deal with them.
- Provide a complete description of your work experience.
- Promptly provide requested materials.
- We know the client’s needs and culture, listen and respond to our advice and recommendations.
- Provide us with solid professional references that know you and your work well; and
- Be proactive; a call to us immediately following an interview, for instance, is an important part of success in the process.
Lastly, ask at least one other person proofread your resume and cover letters/emails. While they may seem insignificant, spelling and grammar mistakes reflect poorly on your attention to detail.
In today’s world, one member of the hiring team will almost always look to the internet to gather information about potential hires. Below are some tips to make sure your online image is positive and professional:
- Google: It is important to “Google yourself” to see what may have been written about you. While you may not be able to change what appears, you should be aware that potential employers will likely see this information so that you can be prepared to address those concerns in an interview.
- LinkedIn: Update and double check that all your information is accurate, detailed and well presented. Whenever possible, ask for professional recommendations that can attest to your accomplishments at several points in your career. Join relevant groups in your niche. It’s good for networking and provides you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of what is taking place in your particular industry therefore facilitating better discussions during your interviews.
