In a tight market trying to get a job can be an impersonal, anonymous and downright defeating process. You need a friend/contact that is “connected,” one who is “networked” and has your BEST INTEREST at heart. YOU NEED TO BE WORKING WITH A RECRUITER from EXACT STAFF. Here are 6 HUGE reasons why you need an EXACT STAFF recruiter on your team:
EXACT STAFF Recruiters know about “hidden” jobs.
Many companies and organizations don’t go the job board route nor do they advertise their openings AT ALL because it’s just too time consuming. They know that the best talent have partnered with a professional recruiter and they rely on EXACT STAFF to present them the best candidates.
EXACT STAFF can give you the inside scoop.
At EXACT STAFF our recruiters can provide you valuable insight on company environment and culture to ensure a successful hire. We can give you an up close feel for the company/firm and for the interviewer before you meet them. We provide interview feedback and moderate salary negotiations.
Safeguard your privacy.
Many employers have set up automatic search agents on the big job boards to find out if their employees are looking to make a move. Beware! Your job search with EXACT STAFF is confidential.
Stand out as an exclusive candidate.
You’re just one of the masses of resumes hiring managers receive from the job boards. Hiring managers like “exclusive” candidates and when they see a resume through a job board, or on several boards their impression is that the candidate may not be very valuable. Show your worth and stand out from the masses by aligning yourself with EXACT STAFF – your odds of being noticed will increase greatly!
Maintain control over your resume.
Unfortunately, there are many unethical staffing agencies that will find your resume on a job board, then submit it to companies without your approval! If you don’t know where your resume is going, it’s difficult to manage your job search. EXACT STAFF will inform you of exactly which organizations or companies your resume is going to.
Take the anxiety out of your job search.
EXACT STAFF recruiters are experts when it comes to interviewing techniques and resume preparation. We will look out for your best interest, something web sites and job boards will never do!
AND BEST OF ALL EXACT STAFF services are 100% free to job seekers.
Employers pay us to find them the ideal candidates. Yes, most job boards are free as well. But EXACT STAFF provides personal and business touches a job board just can’t provide!
We hope you’ll partner with an EXACT STAFF recruiter and allow us to join your team and land the job of your dreams.
Today’s LA Times featured an article about the unusual antics and questions that some companies are using to hire their talent. I’ve included the list of oddball interview questions that were included as well as the top reasons applicants made poor impressions during their interviews.
Name five uses for a stapler, without the staples
What is 37 times 37?
Are you exhaling warm air?
Room, desk or car-which do you clean first?
How would you get an elephant into a refrigerator?
Would Gandhi have made a good software engineer?
What do you think of garden gnomes?
Please spell “diverticulitis”
How many planes are currently flying over Kansas?
Does life fascinate you?
Reason applicants made poor impressions:
Answered cellphone during interview
Spoke negatively about a current or previous employer
Didn’t provide specific answer
Didn’t ask good questions
The GREAT news is that we are seeing getting busier and busier in ALL of our offices! There are great jobs and excellent companies out there so now is the time to get serious about that career search. We’ll be there every step of the way to guide you through the maze of questions and interviews and be your advocate to get that job! And the most oddball question we hope to ask you is “when can you start??!!!”

Let’s face it, anything that can make your life easier and more productive is a welcome addition! I’ve come to rely on several apps that I know have been great tools for me so let me share my top five with you:
DropBox– functions as an online backup and file storage tool. You can use it to share large files and grant conference attendees access to powerpoint presentations.
Dragon Dictation – this app for your iPhone let’s you speak a memo and have it converted to text. Sometimes it may miss a word but it’s a definite time saver. You can then e-mail your text.
Hello Fax – allows you to receive a document like an agreement or contract that needs edits or a signature. You just download the document, upload to HelloFax, make your edits, add your stored signature and e-mail it back – done!
Text Expander – I use certain text often and Text Expander lets me write large copy once and then paste that copy whenever I need it with just a couple of key strokes. A real time saver and mitigates errors in typing and re-typing.
Transmit – A file transfer tool that lets you move files around in your laptop as well as uploading and managing files via FTP to your website.

This is my first blog as the owner and CEO of Exact Staff. I’m excited to share the insights of our staffing team, our associates and our amazing client base with all of you.
In today’s economy our staffing teams are seeing some of the most talented and gifted job seekers we’ve seen in years! Why is it that one job seeker gets a position over another, equally qualified candidate? We’ve noticed that candidates who are confident, positive and see themselves as a problem-solver for an employer (vs. simply a “job-seeker”) are more likely to land the job.
Remember that every business is looking for the experience, skills and talents that can help them solve their problems. When you do the research and investigation on your targeted “companies of choice” be sure to identify issues and challenges that business or industry faces and determine how your skills and capabilities can turn you into the problem-solver they need. You have something to offer rather than needing something from that business. YOU ARE A VALUABLE RESOURCE that needs to be added to the team!
Let us help you identify your strengths and get you into the right mindset to get that career you deserve. For more info. and a chance to chat with us, come see us at www.exactstaff.com. Follow us on Twitter http://twitter.com/#!/ExactStaff1
