• US jobs report ‘tepid,’ but temp penetration rate holds at record high

    Pathways Personnel doesn't see this as bad news at all.  It indicates a still strong job market especially for candidates that have strong resumes with stable employment.  It makes sense that job growth would decrease somewhat with the unemployment rate being at historical lows.

  • Indeed reports 61% of employers to hire more people in 2018 than they did this year

    This is very good news for candidates in 2018 once again.  The hiring economy continues to be a candidate driven market.    In these times it is more valuable than ever to enlist the assistance of an experienced professional Recruiter who can help you navigate these waters.   Employers will try to entice candidates with all types of creative compensation packages and job perks to set their company apart from the other competitors for your services.  It is essential to have an unbiased source to help highlight what parts of the offer will be most beneficial in the short and long term to your career and personal well being.  A good Recruiter can bring to light certain aspects of an offer that a Candidate might otherwise miss due to being focused on other areas of an offer they perceive would be most desirable to themselves.  I would equate this to reading your own term paper.  You need an outside eye to catch things you might miss because you've read and reread it so many times.   Recruiters are a resource you should take full advantage of when conducting a comprehensive job search.

  • How To Nail Your Skype Interview

    I actually had a client say they were passing on a candidate after a Skype interview because they said the person looked like they just rolled out of bed.  When I spoke to the candidate they said they over slept and didn't think it would be a big deal.  Seriously? Candidates today need to understand the company they interviewing with and not every company likes to see their employees coming to work in shorts and t-shirts.   Whether it is 1987 or 2017 professionalism never goes out of style.

  • Recruitment and Hiring in 2017: MRINetwork Study

    There is no doubt this is a Candidate driven market.  When employers say the top factors of not hiring is the lack of qualified candidates that means it is a Candidate driven market.   It is not for me to decide whether it's better or worse but there is definitely a different work ethic in today's labor market. Pathways Personnel is very busy in the legal branch of our business and the need for Executive and Administrative Assistants has never been higher.

  • What top employers look for in new college grads

    This just goes to show that they intangible qualities are just as important as the tangible! A candidate with average grades but who is down to earth, eager to learn and can learn from their mistakes is as good a candidate as you will find. In this day and age of entitlement those who don't mind working hard to prove themselves will go a long way.

  • How to avoid a classic mistake super-qualified job seekers make

    Short, simple and to the point is always the best presentation whether it be in an interview or a resume. Everybody is busy so they want the meat not all the extra fluff which can come across as overselling yourself. Using your network to help fleece out issues at a prospective employer you are interviewing at is a fantastic idea. It not only shows an employer you are resourceful and proactive but you care that much about the a position you haven't even got yet.
