Why temping in a basic role was the best decision I ever made...

There is a saying in the acting business that says “There is no small part only a small actor”. This particular phrase rings true in the office as well. Even what seems like a basic temporary role can make a large impact to a company and even your own career, it’s all in how you decide to approach and work it. Many times the main goal of a temporary job is to become permanent however; that’s not always the case and there are so many other benefits that come from temping.

Get Your Resume Chosen

Get your Resume Chosen! Do the Recruiters work for them.

Often submitting your resume online can be like submitting your resume into a black hole. HR has to review hundreds of resumes for each opening. Therefore, if you want to make the shortlist, you need to standout and, by standout we don’t mean fancy fonts or bright colors.

Learn These Soft Skills to Get and Keep the Job

Employers today are looking for candidates who possess a combination of both hard and soft skills. Soft skills are developmental, social and communication skills that can be beneficial not just in your career, but similarly in your personal life. While it’s accurate that hard skills are still very important as they are associated with your expertise and knowledge, soft skills can be even more crucial for your employment success.

This month our Temp of the month award goes to a candidate who always has a smile on her face and happy to help out!

“Five Rude and Insulting Interview Questions and How to Answer Them” - OUR comments on forbes article

https://www.forbes.com/sites/lizryan/2017/05/22/five-rude-and-insulting-interview-questions-and-how-to-answer-them/#63a500a3190e

How clients can avoid the awkward questions and ask what they are trying to find out in a better way, and candidates, if asked the original question, can turn it into a positive and provide a constructive answer.

This article focuses on some uncomfortable interviewing questions that are frequently asked and sometimes difficult to answer, however, these questions can be delivered and responded to in a way that makes it more specific to professional experiences and attributes.

The first question was about your greatest weakness?  This is a question that is too broad, however if you make it specific or re-phrase it can be beneficial. For example, where do you feel in your professional experience, that you would like to make improvements to or learn to make your next role more successful?  This now makes it more professional performance based and turns it to a positive.

Question 2 speaks about what your former boss would say about you?  Again, this is a bit broad, if you made it more specific this can be a very valid question and it can show the consistency with the references that are performed.  Example; From your past experience, what do you think your former Manager/Supervisor was your greatest achievement while you were there?

The third question: We're interviewing many other people for this job. Why should we hire you? I agree with the article in the sense that it can be an intimidating question, the candidate is now thinking that they are competing with more qualified candidates that you don’t know, it can be stressful.  It would make more sense to focus on what the candidate feels are their best attributes that align with the role and the company’s values.

Question 4: Where do you see yourself in five years? This is very wide ranging, and I can understand from the client point of view they want someone for the long-term, however anything can change and you can feel one way and then you may go in a different direction all together.  A more specific question would be more on what is your professional passion, or what attracted you to this role/industry? 

Salary expectations was the final question and is tough for a lot of people I meet. Talking salary is always difficult for candidates and it is an in inquiry that I get asked often on how to manage.  It is easier to do your research on the role and the market salary in your local area, also factor in your years of experience and if you are confident to give your expectation then that is great to be upfront.  On the other side, people get nervous that they will give an answer that is too high or too low, always go based on knowledge and real expectation.  If this is not something you are comfortable engaging, it is always best to let them know that you are interested in role and your expectation is based on the market and you are open to discussing further.

From my personal experience, it is always best when interviewing candidates to ask more detailed and specific questions on professional experience, this will help get a better response from your candidate and make them feel more comfortable and valued professionally.
