ProSource aims to be the leading local resource for job seekers on the market. This is why we provide important information and topics on this blog. It is our goal to match Deer Park companies with skilled candidates who will be motivated and satisfied in the right company structure. We can do this by helping local job seekers improve their search techniques and give themselves the best possible opportunities. This year we’ve decided to take a look back and see what the most popular and helpful blog posts have been for 2014.
We wish every job was a good experience for every employee. However, sometimes we have to face the truth that something isn’t working out. The first step is to determine what it wrong and then see if anything can be fixed. If all else fails, it may be time to start looking for a new opportunity. We looked at some of the most common reasons jobs stop working for employees such as a lack of challenge, a problem with work/life balance, and no engagement or motivation.
Of course, in order to have the opportunity to find a new job it is important that your resume be top quality. Far too often hiring managers see resumes that are too cluttered or have irrelevant information included. In this post we give practical tips to help streamline a resume to put your best foot forward. We suggest that shorter is better, bullet points draw the eye, personal information is unnecessary, and editing is the most critical step.
Lastly we want to make sure every job seeker has all the possible tools available to them to get their dream job. In this post, we describe the reasons for writing a follow up email after an interview and provide ideas for the best way to make it happen. We encourage job seekers to include their contact information to make it easier to reach them. Then we walk through the greeting, the paragraphs, and the conclusion to provide a format for sharing just the right details to persuade a hiring manager.
