Are you stuck in the ever-lasting loop of looking for work? Reaching out to staffing agencies in South Florida and hoping to hear back but aren’t? Too often, candidates are so eager to apply for new jobs hiring in South Florida, that they don’t take the time to fine-tune simple, small tweaks when marketing themselves. There are a few easy, but important, tricks you can perform now to make yourself a more viable candidate in the eyes or recruitment agencies in Delray Beach. First, always answer your phone professionally. If you see a number you are not familiar with calling, assume it is a recruiter and answer the phone stating your name with a warm and friendly tone. First impressions are everything. Next, when conversing on the phone, or in person, it is important to answer questions with more than just one word answers. Often, whether you think so or not, one word answers can come off as rude. Do your best to try and prevent awkward silence. If you are interviewing with a manager that doesn’t enjoy talking to you for a brief, 30 minute interview, why would they want to work all year long with you? If you do receive a phone call and are unable to answer, be sure to set up your voicemail correctly. Shockingly, at least 20 percent of people do not have their voicemail set up correctly, which can be very annoying to someone trying to leave you important information. And even worse, having the dreaded “this voicemail box is not set up" message, and recruitment agencies aren't able to get you important information regarding your job search! It is also key to have the most up to date contact information on your resume and profile work history, so people are able to contact you quickly and correctly. Paying attention to the small details could make all the difference in your job search! Reach out to Sloane Staffing, a staffing agency in South Florida, with any questions!
