We offer career advice, resume tips, interview tips and ways to improve your professional ability and image throughout our process.
WHEN YOU WALK IN OUR DOORS
Typically, you will visit our website to complete an online application prior to coming into our office. If that has not been done, we will have you complete an application upon your arrival into our office. With this application, you will explain your industry of choice and/or specific position(s) you desire. If you are a fit for the types of positions that we work on here at Palmer Group, you will be contacted by one of our great recruiting coordinators who will then ask you a few basic questions in regard to your search. At that point, we would look to set up an interview. We strive to meet face to face with any person who may represent Palmer Group in the future as a way to connect and ensure it is the right fit for our clients. When you walk into suite 200, you can expect to be greeted by an awesome receptionist who will let your recruiter know you are there to meet with them. If you are not local to our office, we would look to set up a detailed phone screen along with a Skype Interview. A typical interview could take anywhere from 20-45 minutes depending on the role and the recruiter(s) you meet with. Upon completion of the interview, you may be asked to do computer testing if it pertains to the client’s job functions. A representative will then go over your test scores. This will conclude your initial visit to the Palmer Group.
From this point on, you are now an active candidate in our database. If your skill set, along with desired position(s), match up with one of our client’s needs, we will be in touch to discuss the job opportunity. Our clients set very high standards as to what they are looking for and we are committed to finding the right candidate(s) for each job opening we work on. If and when we discuss submitting you to one of our clients, you can expect the selection process to be a resume review, phone interview, Skype interview or in-person interview. At that point, it is up to the client on the next step of offering a role. Please know that Palmer Group will not submit your resume to any of our clients without first getting your approval to do so. This should be very important for you to know as you want to make sure that you are keeping an accurate record of every place your resume has been submitted.
IS AN EMPLOYMENT FIRM RIGHT FOR YOU?
To succeed with an employment firm you need to be reliable and punctual. You will also need to possess those specific skill sets our clients are looking for. A lot of our positions require you to be able to learn new tasks and policies quickly and flexibility is imperative. A reputable employment firm is a great supplement to your job search. With employment firms being experts in their field, they have the industry knowledge and connections that may help you get your foot in the door to the career you have always dreamed of.
