Sometimes, a job seeker will find him/herself in an uncomfortable situation wondering about the intent of the question. When that happens there are three choices, especially if it is a job you want.
Best of Staffing winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based completely on the ratings given to them by their clients and the direct hire (permanent) and temporary employees they’ve helped find jobs.
For most of my generation, graduation is terrifying, it means becoming an actual adult, with real responsibilities. I’ve just completed five weeks of a corporate internship, observing the daily ins and outs of a staffing firm, I’ve been able to hear about candidates and talent that have made really good impressions as well as some not-so-nice impressions. I also have been doing research for marketing and social recruiting projects. I am now able to come away with some advice to my fellow Millennials who are entering the job market or will soon be entering it this spring.
My fear is that the soft art of building relationships, especially in a service driven model, is rapidly becoming a lost art.
Why would a company pay a recruiter’s placement fee to find candidates that possess absolutely zero industry experience? And, why might a recent grad vs. someone with more experience be the smarter hire?
