RicmondJobNet.com has some helpful advice for spring!


The Richmond
region has been thrilled and energized by the inspiring performances of the
Richmond Spiders and the VCU Rams in this year’s NCAA basketball tournament. But
now that March Madness is over, it’s time to focus on your job search! This
month we’re bringing you a spring cleaning checklist for your job search as well
as a long list of staffing agencies hiring for a multitude of positions in
Greater Richmond.



Clean Up Your Act!

We all know that April is a great time
to start spring cleaning. Your job search should be no different. To help you
tidy things up, we’ve created a list of job search related items that may need
some extra attention.

  • LinkedIn profile: Make
    sure your LinkedIn profile is up-to-date and that there is current activity.
    Join groups, post updates, and join conversations related to the field of work
    you are looking for.
  • Image: Studies show
    that more than 70 percent of employers use Google and other online tools to
    gather information about you. Google your name to find out what your prospective
    employers will see.
  • Voicemail: If you
    would be embarrassed to have a recruiter hear your current voicemail message, it
    may be time to think about changing it. Remember to check both your cell phone
    and ground line.
  • Email: Is your email
    address professional? Your friends might think hotchick25, redskinsfan555 or
    baked420 are funny, but hiring managers won’t. If you can’t live without your
    existing account, that’s fine; set up a new, more professional email address
    dedicated to professional communications.
  • Wardrobe: What you
    wear says a lot about you. Do you have a professional outfit ready to go in case
    you are called in for an interview? Take a look at these 
    top 20 no-no’s from
    Career Builder
     to
    make sure your garb is appropriate.
  • Resume: Your resume is
    what most often introduces you to employers. If yours is not landing you
    interviews, it might be time for a revamp. Need help? Check out 
    “Improving your
    resume”
     under
    RichmondJobNet’s job search tips.
  • Cover letters: Make
    sure that you are writing customized cover letters for each job you apply to.
    Your cover letter should clearly and concisely highlight your strengths as
    related to the position you are applying for – without any typos or spelling
    errors! There are some great resources under RichmondJobNet’s 
    “Writing a better cover
    letter”
    section.
  • Interview skills: If
    you’re going on interview after interview but not getting hired, your interview
    style may be to blame. If you’re a student or alumni, contact your 
    university’s career
    office
     to set up a
    mock interview. Otherwise, check out RichmondJobNet’s 
    “Acing your
    interview”
     section
    under job search tips.
  • Your network: If
    you’ve been hibernating this winter, now’s the time to get out and meet new
    people. Not sure where to start? Why not take a look at
    RichmondJobNet’s 
    list of networking
    organizations
    ?



 Need a Job? Get some Help from a Staffing
Agency!

  

It is becoming more and more
common for companies to hire contractors from a staffing agency before
committing to hiring them on as permanent employees. This means that if you
aren’t considering contractor positions, you are missing a significant piece of
the job search puzzle. Below are just a few of the many staffing agencies that
have open contractor and permanent positions in Greater Richmond. Also included
are companies that hire individuals as permanent employees to work as
contractors for a client company. Some of the companies below offer general
employment while others specialize in a particular field such as IT or
law.



Don’t let the season pass you by. Get out there on conquer
your goals, job seekers. We know you can do
it!


Sincerely,
Your Friends at
RichmondJobNet
