As a staffing agency in South Florida, one of the best tools we use to find candidates a job is LinkedIn. We strongly encourage everyone, even if you’re not looking for a ho at the moment, to keep your LinkedIn profile updated. It has never been more important to build and maintain a stellar LinkedIn profile. Be sure to update your profile whenever you switch jobs, change roles, get a promotion, etc. This makes it easy for HR recruiters and staffing agencies to easily find you, and quickly scan through your resume so you don’t lose out to the next candidate who has a great profile written up about themselves. LinkedIn is your place to brag about your work accomplishments! Add any tools, languages, skills, or certifications you have to your profile. If you need help, here are some tips and tricks to updating your profile. Also, reach out to people in your network and ask them for recommendations. Your friends online can vouch for your hard work, and can say you have strong skills in one area or another. In addition, it’s important to have a good LinkedIn profile photo. We highly recommend having your picture taken by a professional, trust us - this makes all the difference. Seeing you in a suit in front of a good background is much more appealing than a selfie you took on your iPhone. When uploading the your photo ensure you name it yourname.jpg - this will ensure it returns on the first page of Google and also in Google image searches when your name is entered. If you want to update your LinkedIn photo but don’t want to alarm your boss, turn your settings on LinkedIn Recruiter to show HR recruiters and staffing agencies that you are looking for a new role. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us today at 561.512.8989.

It is always important to have an update resume on hand, whether you are in the job market or not. If you are actively looking for a job online using job boards like Indeed or Career Builder, or an agency website like Sloane Staffing, a company hiring people in West Palm, it’s important you are putting the best version of yourself first on paper. This goes for all levels - from the CEO to the interns. You never know when someone, like a recruiter, might reach out and have the next best opportunity for you. Whether you’re in college or working at your first job, it’s good to write down and identify the tasks you’re doing and the skill set you’re developing. Many professionals only think to update their resumes when they’re looking for a job, but that could not be farther from the truth. It could be any day now that a recruiter reaches out to you with an opportunity you just can’t pass up. And that recruiter will want your most updated resume, and fast. Or someone else who took the time to update their resume will sneak in and possibly get the job before you. Even if you’re not looking for a new full-time job, you may decide you want to pick up some side work, or some freelance work, or collaborate with someone on a side project. Always have a side hustle! By having an updated resume on hand, if you are up for or want to apply for a promotion, you will already have what you need! If you need help writing your resume, reach out to a company to help you paint the perfect picture of you on paper.

In addition to help filling positions in West Palm Beach, here at Sloane Staffing, we know just how important it is to give back to the community. Corporate philanthropy is defined as the act of a corporation or business promoting the welfare of others, generally through charitable donations of funds or time. Corporate philanthropy benefits the community and also benefits your company by building your brand and strengthening employee morale and camaraderie, bringing your teams together. It is important to get every one of your employees involved, at all levels. The CEO should be participating just as much as the interns. One of the more common corporate philanthropy events we see in South Florida is Habitat for Humanity. Schedule a day (or half day) to close your office and take your employees to this nonprofit organization that helps people in your community and around the world by building or improving a place they can call home. And if you want to get really creative, you can also start philanthropic traditions, such as choosing a different charity to focus on each year or during the holiday season. Regardless of company size, make sure your philanthropic efforts authentically align with your company’s values and beliefs. In recent years, the explosion of social media and the widespread adoption of its use by businesses and consumers has created a level of transparency that was completely unknown just ten years ago. With this new atmosphere of openness and dialogue at all levels of the business cycle, consumers have become far more interested in a company’s values and corporate responsibility than ever before. If you’d like to get involved, take a look at ten awesome companies doing corporate philanthropy right. And as always, if you need help filling positions in West Palm Beach or South Florida, reach out to Sloane Staffing at 561.512.8989.
