February is the month we celebrate love and we love helping people find a job. Daily our superstar recruiters play matchmaker to match candidates with jobs. Often the first step is to talk with candidates to find out their interests much like you would chat with someone on your first date. Then potential employees are “set-up” with our clients, just like you’d “set-up” two single friends on a date. So how else is staffing similar to dating?
Online is all the rage. Many singles use online apps to find that special someone just like we advertise on job boards like LinkedIn and ZipRecruiter to find special candidates. See which jobs would make you swipe right on our job board.
Face-to-face is key. One of the hallmarks of our recruiting process is meeting our candidates face-to-face. This is so helpful when talking to our clients. Even if it is someone you have been talking to for weeks or even months, you still would want to meet face-to-face to continue your relationship.
Finding your type. When on the dating scene, you might go out with one person for bit, and then switch and start seeing someone new. Working at a temporary position allows you to try out a position before fully committing to the relationship – or job.
Timing is everything. Sometimes candidates need to wait or go on a few different interviews before finding the right job. Just like dating where you might have to wait until the right person comes along.
What everyBODY is saying. Body language plays an important role in the hiring process. According to study conducted by Career Builder hiring managers know within the first five minutes if candidate is a good fit – just like love at first sight.
Breaking up is hard to do. Sometimes relationships and jobs just don’t work out. And that’s ok. The beauty of working with a staffing company is if you let us know with notice, we’ll work on finding you your next sweet gig. Just like you’d lean on a friend after a breakup with your sweetheart, That’s Good HR will be there for you!
