Frequently Asked Questions
I have a diverse career background and need help narrowing my search. Which Recruiting angecy would you use?
Should I use a Recruiting Agency? I have left a resume at Kelly Girl services, but was asked what I wanted to do and quite frankly I was under the impression that if I was at their agency, I obviously came there to apply for any job. I need some guidance. Please help. I raised 3 boys and been divorced for almost 3 years. Besides the college I graduated from are there other places where you can go to get this kind of guidance?
You may have your best resume handy, sign up or update them on mainstream prominent websites that post jobs. Then, browse and apply for the job package that appeals to you. Why? Most sites like that already post job offers that are from local agencies besides individual employers' offers. Apply/submit online. (fastest correspondence) When you get a reply, you are called for an interview with the direct employer or the agency which posted the job. Kelly is all right but dont blame them if you dont get a callback in a very short time. Other than that, stuffs on top of my mind are,
(3) Yahoo Hotjobs
You can even sign up for the type of jobs you want that are posted daily, sent to your inbox such as,
Besides Kelly, also try
(6) Appleone.com (agency pretty good in Beverly Hills, should be elsewhere)
(7) Also check Craigslist.com as a last resort or other local agencies. (not significant in my mind).
Directly checking with employer websites are also a preferred option in profiled cases. (i-e: banking, teaching, C-Level...etc)
In the end, you get to pick your best from the "broadest avenues"(all options) and seal the deal. Yep, it should sound like "it's what you want-!!".
What staffing services are best to use in trying to relocate to another state?
It depends on where you're moving and the type of work experience that you have. Kelly Services is a good temp. agency to work for and they are national as well as international. I have worked with them previously and they are pretty good. The pay is pretty decent and you get paid on a weekly basis. Of course it's not good to make a career out of it but it's certainly a good way to make some cash to pay your bills until you find a permanent position. They're also good because you get steady work and they usually call you with an assignment a few days after your background check comes back.
Is there any work at home jobs that you dont have to pay for?
I was recently taken out of work, i am 5months pregnant. I am trying to keep my income flowing, so is there any real work at home jobs that you DONOT have to pay for?
