Finding a Job You Can Sink Your Fangs Into

Job hunting can seem like a scary task, but with a few tricks you can treat yourself to a new position in a rewarding field. Just follow these tips and you’ll be well on your way to finding a sweet new gig in the Polk County workforce.

Dress Up Your Resume

Things have changed in your life since the last night you looked for work, and your resume needs to reflect that. Try reformatting your resume to give it a new look visually. If you’ve taken any courses or gotten new certifications, be sure to add those in the education section. Update your work history and career goals. Have someone else eyeball what you’ve done to make sure it looks and sounds great.

Upload Your Resume to KB Staffing

Whether you see a job posting on our website you like or not, it’s still a good time to upload your resume. New positions come in frequently, so it’s best to be prepared, especially with the holidays right around the corner. Plus, having your resume on file will streamline the process when you are ready to apply for that perfect job.

The Right Costume for the Interview

Your interview is going to be your employee’s first impression of you, so make sure you make a good one. The general consensus for both men and women is that a suit is most suitable. Women may choose to wear slacks or a skirt. For both, the shirt should be a conservative color, nothing too bright or flashy. Women should keep the accessories to a minimum, with makeup and nails in neutral tones. For shoes, coordinating pumps with neutral hose are recommended. For the men, a nice pair of polished dress shoes should match the belt. Wear a tie, but nothing too fancy. Avoid perfumes and colognes, and don’t forget to brush your teeth.

Be Open to New Possibilities

Don’t limit yourself to the field you’ve been working in. Our world is changing fast, and so is the job market. Be open to the possibility of starting over in a new field. You may need to start at the bottom and work your way up, but by presenting your skills and experience as transferable, you’ll come across as someone who is flexible and willing to learn. Full time temp jobs often lead to lasting employment.
