Your Summer Search—Thursday, Aug. 10
When you have the choice between hanging out in the sun and starting your job search, the answer seems easy. Some may think the summertime is not an ideal time to open up your job search, but I challenge you to think differently! The Brilliant webinar series is back and we’re ready to talk about “The Summer Search” being held on Thursday, Aug. 10 at 12pm (Noon) (CDT).

Candidate of the Month

This month, Tena West, a Recruiting Manager from our Fort Lauderdale office, has recommended not one, but two candidates. It was hard for her to choose, so I decided not to make her! Congratulations to Taeshon and Myown.

1. Taeshon has been working for one of our clients since May 2017. Taeshon was sourced from a competitor and was a break-through candidate to one of our most challenging roles. Both his tangible background and intangible dispositional qualities impressed the client which led to a quick placement, where he has been exceeding expectations ever since. Taeshon was flexible, communicative and a pleasure to work with. Since his placement, Taeshon has received all positive feedback and has been adding tremendous value to their team.

2. Myown has been working for one of our clients since March 2017. Myown was sourced, screened and started as a send-in, within 2 business days. His flexibility, positive attitude and excellent references have been instrumental to his continued success. On his assignment, Myown continues to receive praise and recognition as a promising and key new member of the team, expanding from mostly clerical responsibilities into a more diverse role, which is scheduled to become a permanent placement in the near future.

Hot Topic – LinkedIn Topics Not to Forget!

LinkedIn is the place to be for job seekers and recruiters. We often focus so much of our time updating our skills, past employment, and current employment, that we forget to modify the summary in our LinkedIn profile. A LinkedIn summary allows you to add your own creative touch that can make you stand out from other job seekers who may have the same job qualifications and responsibilities as you.

Please click the article below from Forbes to learn more about updating your summary.

Another topic not to forget about in our LinkedIn profiles is recommendations. We become so focused on asking for our verbal references that we do not ask our manager, peers or friends to post on our LinkedIn profiles. When recruiters and employers look on our profiles, what is better than having a permanent stamp of approval for the world to see? Nothing!
