Checking References: 5 Questions to Ask

February 3rd, 2015

Resumes, phone calls and even interviews may not tell the full story about the quality of a job applicant you have before you. Managers should make a practice of finding out how an employee preformed in the past in order to make a comprehensive hiring decision. Here are 5 questions to ask former employers when checking references.

  1. What were the candidate’s main responsibilities at the company?

This question is important to ask in the beginning because it will inform the rest of the conversation. If the employee had responsibilities that were limited or not applicable to the job you are hiring for, this is a big red flag. Read the rest of this entry »

Job Search: When is the Best Time?

August 26th, 2014

While we can honestly say that there is no golden time to start your job search, there are some key times that you should avoid while seeking new employment. Everyone’s schedules are a bit different, and hiring windows can differ based on the industry. Here at JPS, we are always available to help you land that dream job you’ve been looking for, but we want to make sure you’re in the right place at the right time. job search

BEST TIMES TO JOB SEARCH 

Beginning of the Year 

Many companies will have a clear budget outline right before or shortly after the New Year. This budget will tell them if they have spaces to fill and can look into hiring new talent. It’s best to wait until about the second or third week of the month to allow time for executives and hiring managers to return from holiday vacation, but make sure that your resume is at the top of their inbox when they return.

Applying around the New Year also will give you a psychological boost thanks to the “starting over” mentality of a brand new beginning.  Read the rest of this entry »

HR Trends for 2015

August 19th, 2014

Human resources is a constantly changing, ever-evolving field.  I know it’s August but that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to 2015.  The New Year will bring with it new ideas.  Let’s take a look at the five biggest HR trends for the coming year.

1.  Making Data Personal

At its core, HR is the practice of understanding and helping people.  Data plays a major role in hiring new employees but numbers don’t tell a story.  HR professionals are learning to combine their analytic tools with a more nuanced understanding of each employee.  This interplay builds a stronger, more community-oriented workplace where every individual feels valued. data HR

2.  Generational Diversity

HR has been leading the way in creating a diverse workforce.  However, the knowledge gap between younger and older employees is still an issue.  One of the more interesting trends is reverse mentoring whereby a younger employees helps an older one learn new technologies.   Read the rest of this entry »

Professional Resume: 3 Things to Include

August 12th, 2014

In today’s online world, the resume takes a new role when it comes to impressing employers. While many executives have a general expectation of what a typical resume should look like, it’s important to grab their attention with subtle differences that make your resume pop. In order to create a professional resume that is appropriate for your field, we’ve come up with three essentials to include. resumes

3 Things to Include on a Professional Resume 

1. State A Clear Objective

It’s easy to lay out a general objective that covers a wide array of jobs and opportunities. At the top of your resume, write a clear and specific objective that matches the job you are applying for. Employers don’t want to see another general resume that could work for anything; they want to know why this job specifically grabbed your attention.

2. Use Appropriate Key Words 

A great way to tailor your resume to a specific job is to use keywords that are included in the job description. If an employer were to look at your resume next to the job description, they would relatively match. Show how your experience meets the qualifications desired of the position and you will make the interview process fairly easy.  Read the rest of this entry »
