Being in the staffing industry, our Tampa and Orlando recruiting teams are on LinkedIn quite a bit, connecting with hiring managers and candidates. LinkedIn is a great tool for making new connections and expanding your professional network. That's what I want to touch base on here today, the word "professional" and how it fits into your LinkedIn profile, specifically your profile picture.
If you are looking for a job and have never used the services of a staffing agency before, you may have some questions. As with all industries, details vary from company to company. The main goal remains the same, however, and that is to match candidates to the right jobs. Below we have taken some of the most frequently asked questions we hear in our Orlando office and listed them to help you in your decision to seek employment through an Orlando staffing agency.
Our most recent blogs were devoted to an interview that took place on HBO's Game of Thrones. This "interview" did not follow the standard interview process protocol, as the candidate got the job and started the job during the interview.

I'm sure by now you know the basics when it comes to nailing an interview. Let's say you arrive 15 minutes early, appropriately dressed, armed with a resume free of any typographical errors that lauds your professionalism, ready to answer even the trickiest of interview questions. Guess what? The interview went amazing. But have you really done all you need to wrap up the job?

They wanted me to come in the following day for an interview. I had not remembered applying for this job, but wasn't about to turn down an opportunity.
I was just a few months away from my 9 year anniversary at my previous job when the company I worked for pulled the plug. “It’s nothing you’ve done, we’ve just decided to re-evaluate our business model” is what they told us. You may have been there. You may be there now. Maybe you’ll be there sometime soon. The fact is, most of us will find ourselves looking for a job, for no fault of our own, at some time in our lives.
I’m no genius, and I don’t confess to having all the answers, but I would like to share what I’ve learned through my experience, in hopes it will help you if and when you find yourself in the same situation.
