Tips when Applying for Permanent or Temp-to-Perm Jobs

Here at KB Staffing, we do a lot of recruiting, qualifying, interviewing, and hiring. We also provide many human resources solutions for our clients after the hiring process is complete. That being said, there’s a lot we could share about what to do (and what not to do) if you’re applying for a permanent or temp-to-perm position.

With the increasing need for a skilled workforce in the available Polk County job market and surrounding Central Florida area, it’s essential to highlight your strengths, know your weaknesses, and present yourself in the best light to your potential employer.

Here’s a few observations that will definitely help you during the application process:

  1. First and foremost, pay attention to the job description, requirements, and especially the preferences of the available position. If the employer or staffing agency has a strong preference for a particular certification or skill set that you have, make sure you make this known on your application. Anything that can give you a competitive edge over the other applicants is always advantageous.
  2. Next, when you apply, make sure to follow instructions. For example, at KB Staffing, we require that all applicants come and apply in person. So make sure to note if you should apply for a position in a particular way. If you’re not paying attention to how the staffing agency requires you to apply, then all the qualifications in the world will not help you.
  3. Also, make sure to present your application in the most orderly fashion possible. If you are applying in person, then make sure you’re dressed professionally, that you have all your information in order before you arrive, and that you are prepared to take any skill tests on the spot, if necessary.

If you have to provide handwritten information, make sure to use a blue or black-ink pen, and always write as neatly as possible.
