Does the start of 2017 have you clutching the phrase “new year, new you?” Maybe your goals include tackling the Couch to 5K Program, learning French, or saving $1,000… or maybe your resolution involves a change of scenery – like moving to Seattle, or finding a new job.
If a brand new job opportunity is what you’re looking for, consider Parker your key to conquering that New Year’s Resolution! As one of Seattle’s best – and highest rated – staffing agencies, we take pride in our ability to place quality candidates with some of the most noteworthy companies in the Puget Sound area. From Bellevue to Everett to Downtown Seattle, we have a continuous stream of job opportunities for job seekers with administrative and customer service skills.
Here are a few of our quick tips for landing a new role in 2017:
- Update your resume! If you’ve had the same looking resume for two years, maybe it’s time for a bit of a refresh before you find a new job. Freshen up those skills and keywords, and follow these other simple steps recommended by our Recruiting Manager, Kelli Whitecar.
- Update your wardrobe! Ditch the loud tie looming in the back of your closet. And that one itchy blouse that your mother got you, but you ended up never wearing? Get rid of it, too. Invest in a few versatile pieces that will keep your wardrobe fresh, sleek and interview appropriate. Here are some examples of interview attire that we expect at Parker.
- Update your attitude! If the idea of interviewing or job seeking leaves you with a sinking feeling of dread or exhaustion, it will show in interviews, phone conversations, and even email correspondence with recruiters and hiring managers. Do your best to turn any negative thoughts into a more positive outlook. Start with this: With Seattle and Bellevue unemployment under 5%, skilled professionals like you are actually in high demand!
