When the Going Gets Tough...
By Christina Ellis
Nothing will put a knot in your stomach like the words, “I am going to have to let you go”. The uncertainty of how you are going to pay your bills and put food on the table will send most people who felt their company was stable into a downward spiral of uncertainty and uneasiness.
Where do I start? I haven’t updated my resume in YEARS.
How much information needs to be on there? What is normal for a resume? Do I trim it down to 2 pages, or stretch it to a detailed 10 page novella?
How do I get an interview? What is the competition like? How do I know if I will like the company?
These questions and MANY more go through the heads of those searching for a new job. Looking for a job is incredibly tough, time consuming and depressing.
THAT’S WHAT WE ARE HERE FOR!!!!!
M Force is a specialized technical staffing company who offers full service support. If you work with M Force, you WILL have a professional resume which WILL be seen by the direct hiring manager. That's because they trust us enough to actually look at the resume when we call them and say “Hey Bob, I just sent you Barbara’s resume, I really think she is a great fit for your job opening, what are your thoughts.”
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
What sets M Force apart from most other staffing companies is our established relationships. We work with local clients so we can build and nurture our business partnerships.
Many larger staffing companies will call you about a job in another part of the country. How strong do you think their relationship is with their client they are calling you about? Probably not strong enough to get your resume to the top of the massive pile of resumes the manager will eventually get around to viewing. That's probably is the best case scenario. Most likely it will just be another resume submitted to a company’s website, aka the black hole. Your only hope at that point is that HR is curious enough to actually look at your resume and decide that you are a good fit.
Starting to feel better? I’ve saved the best for last.
With M Force, you WILL be fully prepared for your interview. I have yet to meet a person that says they just LOVE to interview. That’s because interviews are awkward and scary and most of the nerves come from not knowing. Not knowing what the manager is like, not knowing what personality types they like to have on their team. Should you ask questions? How many? How much information about yourself should you give?
Here are some stats about the staffing industry from CareerBuilder and Inavero
On average people who use a staffing company:
Receive 3x as many job offers
3x as many interviews
and apply to more interesting and quality jobs!
M Force is your easy button AGAIN! We KNOW all those answers because we KNOW our clients on a professional and personal level. We will fully coach you before your interview so you will be as comfortable as possible on the big day! And we will even be there for you on your biggest day of all...YOUR FIRST DAY AT YOUR NEW JOB!!!
