Searching for a new job doesn’t have to be the worst thing in the world. It’s easy to feel stuck in a position due to the fear of not finding anything better or fear or the job hunting process, but that’s what a job recruiter is for. Job recruiters are members of an employment agency that assists job seekers in finding a perfect fit as well as working with hiring managers and company owners to fill their employment opportunities. Their main goals are to match employees with jobs and assist them along the way. If you’re searching for a new job or searching for an employee here are a few reasons why you should connect with a job recruiter.

  1. Saves Time: Why waste time scrolling through endless job listings on job board sites when a recruiter can do that for you. Recruiters know of many job listings and have connections to companies that are hiring, they can save you time by finding tailored listings and submitting applications for you.
  2. Access to Larger Network: Some companies exclusively work with hiring firms to find their employees and may not post online, so working with a recruiter gives you access to a wider range of available positions and allows you to get connected easier with a member of the hiring team.
  3. Assistance Through Hiring Process: If the hiring process scares you, then a recruiter can help. They specialize in placing employees and are familiar with the ins and outs of hiring. A recruiter can give you tips and tricks to add to your resume and will make the hiring process much less daunting.
  4. Database Connections: Many recruiting companies utilize a database that collects your information in regard to hiring. This is great news because your information can be saved into this database and can be used to help you find future positions or ones that better suit your needs. Keeping your information in the database will help you find positions with higher movement and potentially better pay as well as making your next employment need process much easier.

Connecting with a recruiter can be greatly beneficial in even more ways than those listed above.

With many people starting to enter back into the workforce as we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with the pandemic, employers are beginning their hiring process and this means interviews. Some see an interview as an opportunity to discuss if the job is for them, but others often feel nervous about being on an interview, especially when it’s for a job they are really interested in. If you relate more to the second group of people and feel nervous during an interview, we’ve come up with a few tips to help you feel more comfortable during your next job interview:

  1. Be Sure to Research: Prior to any interview, whether you feel comfortable or not, you want to do your research on the company. This will not only make you feel more comfortable with questions the interviewer may ask, but will also make you appear more prepared. You’ll be able to answer specific questions and can use your existing knowledge of the company to relay to the interviewer how your prior experience can relate and what value you can add to the company.
  2. Prepare Yourself:In preparation for the interview you’ll want to prepare yourself so that you feel comfortable and less stressed. Start by getting a good night of sleep the night prior so you feel refreshed and then treat yourself to your favorite cup of coffee and breakfast pairing in the morning. It also doesn’t hurt to think of a few key points to touch on during the interview ahead of time such as specific questions you may have for the company/interviewer. Also prepare yourself by creating a list of your best qualities that you can incorporate in the interview/conversation. This will not only make you feel more confident about your own skills, but will also help you feel more prepared.
  3. Make it a Conversation: Rather than focusing on the fact that this person is drilling you and making you feel intimidated, make it a conversion. Focus on the fact that this is just another person that you’re learning about while they learn about you. A popular phase surrounding interviews is that you are interviewing the company just as much as they are interviewing you. You want to focus on the fact that you should also be looking for a job that fits your needs as they are searching for an employee that fits theirs.

In the end, an interview is a pretty simple process where a company is just getting to know you. They want to learn about you and what you can bring to the table, so be sure to take some time to prepare yourself and most of all try to stay calm during your conversation about a new opportunity. Additionally don’t get discouraged if you’re not the selected candidate, this often doesn’t say anything negative about you or your skills, there can be dozens of reasons a company decides not to choose you.

As the world begins to reopen, many many new positions are opening up in all kinds of fields. Many are hiring all kinds of tradespeople and you may be seeing these listings but are wondering how you get started and break into the field. Whether you’re just fresh out of high school or looking for a career change, we’re gonna show you some best practices for landing your next in-demand trade position.

Firstly, what makes a trade a trade? A trade position is one that typically requires specialized skills that can be learned on-the-job, through specially training, or vocational classes. Typically these jobs are physically and mentally demanding. And there are dozens upon dozens of positions that are classified as a trade.

To break into your industry, you’ll first want to do some research on the basic qualifications needed for your trade, typically a high school diploma or GED is needed, and while some companies hire entry-level positions others may require special classes or training from their candidates.

If your trade requires certain certifications or classes, consider looking at your local technical college for more information on how to get started with these classes. They typically are short periods of time with a small investment that will give you a leg up in the hiring process and make you a qualified candidate.

Once your course is completed you may want to consider an apprenticeship, which is essentially similar to an internship. During an apprenticeship you’ll work alongside someone who is highly skilled in your trade and will learn tips and tricks from them on how to become a skilled laborer. You typically can find one of these paid opportunities through a local labor union, employment agency, and through your training institution. Apprenticeship can take anywhere from about 1 to 6 years to be completed and when you’re finished you’ll likely be a highly qualified candidate with a lot of knowledge and understanding of your trade.

Once you have an understanding of your trade, you may need your own license to operate, if so you’ll want to seek out this opportunity and do some research on what licensing your trade requires. Sometimes positions will hire you without the license and will pay for you to complete the course, or can have you work under their license, so keep your eyes open to those opportunities and positions as well.

Finally, once you’ve completed the required schooling and training you can consider yourself a journeyman. Being a journeyman suggests that you’ve had experience and all certifications required for your trade and are on your way to being a highly skilled master tradesperson. You typically can become a master tradesperson after about 1 to 5 years of being a journeyman. Becoming a master tradesperson allows you to enter supervisory roles with a higher pay increase.

Are you dreading going to work and feeling lazy while at work? Has work-related stress, personal stress, Covid stress impacted your desire to clock in? These feelings are common in that everyone suffers from low motivation from time to time and more than likely you enjoy your job but you just feel low. That’s why we’ve come up with 5 tricks to get you feeling motivated by putting the excitement back into your work and putting you back on track to your next promotion.

Start With Small Goals: Oftentimes you have a large list to tackle and things can get overwhelming very quickly which can make you want to push the task of and do it later. Or maybe a project you had will be time-consuming or puzzling. Rather than throwing the whole task list together and thinking about how much you can get done of the overall large goal, try breaking it down into smaller “bite-sized” amounts of work. This allows you to feel rewarded more than once along the journey while still being able to get work done. This will also leave you feeling less stressed and overwhelmed at the end of the day. Just remember to get it done and to prioritize what needs to be completed first.

Focus On Relieving Stress: During your time off from work try focusing on doing tasks that make you feel relaxed. Try that new yoga studio you’ve been eyeing or read a good book. Whatever you like to do to feel less stressed, put some attention on that. This will help you leave work at work and think about other things when you have your own time. And while you’re at it, make this a habit to get used to. In the end, you’ll feel much less stressed both in and out of work.

Set A Schedule:  Jumping off of setting aside time for yourself is making a schedule. Try to plan out your day ahead of time and stick to it to make your workflow more efficient. Do you typically finish your day after you’ve clocked out? Try setting a hard stop time while sticking to this schedule as a way to leave work where it belongs and not bring it home with you. You need some time to unplug from work, so let yourself have the time. The tasks will be there tomorrow.

Reward Yourself: Remember those small goals we talked about earlier? Try rewarding yourself for completing those. Maybe it’s a stop at your favorite ice cream shop or a new set of headphones, do something that makes you feel happy, and reward yourself even for the small stuff. This will push you to work harder knowing you’ll be getting something out of it in the end.

Allow Yourself to Focus: It can be easy to get distracted from the tasks at hand, especially if you’re a procrastinator, so utilize the tips above and allow yourself to get in the zone. Sometimes you just need to know yourself and know what will help you be the most productive, so listen to your mind and let the workflow flow. Even if you have a hard time pushing yourself to get in the zone, try the 10-minute rule of focusing on a task for just 10 minutes and then taking a break.

We hope you can utilize these tips to feel motivated in your workplace. An important thing to remember is that the work will likely be there tomorrow, so don’t stress yourself out by rushing, leaving you feeling stressed and leading to burnout. Rather, take time to be intentional about how to approach your work and you’ll be better off in the long run.

office-work.jpg

April 20, 2021

With now more than half of all adult Americans having received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, we are finally starting to see the light and the end of the pandemic tunnel. But what does a post pandemic workforce look like? And What are some things you can expect as you head back into the office for work? We’re going to take a look into what some experts have to say on this matter.

Adapt To The New Normal

Bringing employees back into the office won’t be as easy as you may think. Many have settled into their new work-from-home office and routine, and adjusting back may take a toll on productivity. In fact, should employers decide to just move all employees back full time at one go, they’ll likely experience a strong loss in productivity as some employees will need time to settle back in and get adjusted to the old normal. Companies will want to make sure that the office space is made appealing to those less apt to coming back full time.

Continuing To Ensure Safety

Depending on state and local regulations it may still be required to have the office space set up for proper social distancing and safety protocols. Many companies have already implemented these changes, but for those that haven’t this may be an important step in not only following local laws, but making your staff feel safe enough to head back into the office.

Consider Adopting Flexible Workplace Models

We’ve seen how easy and in some cases cost affordable it can be to keep employees working from home, there is no office upkeep or rent to pay, so some companies may even want to consider becoming more flexible and keeping their employees at home. Even considering a split in-office and work-from-home model can be a good cost effective idea and can increase productivity and encourage new employees who need a more flexible type of work environment while also accommodating those that are not quite ready to be back in the office full time. 

As employers begin discussion on their post-pandemic workforce it’s important to keep the mindsets of their employees in mind. Some are ready and eager to be back in the office environment with their co-workers, but some are not and enjoy their newly refinished home office space. Maybe taking the time to poll whether or not your employees want to come back, or weighing the cost benefit can be beneficial to ensuring high levels of productivity and employee satisfaction.

truck-driver-CDL.jpg

April 13, 2021

While searching for a new job you may have seen opportunities that require a CDL, but you may not know exactly what that means. ”CDL” stands for Commercial Drivers License and is a type of license that allows you to operate heavy, large, and placarded (hazardous) loads. Once a standard CDL is obtained, some positions may require that you have special licensing endorsements to be able to drive certain load types, like hazmat, air brakes, tankers, or passenger vehicles. Each endorsement comes with its own requirements on how to obtain, for example to obtain a hazmat endorsement you must have completed a written skill test and must have a threat evaluation completed by the Transportation Security Administration.

So what requirements are needed to obtain a CDL?

In conjunction with standard motor vehicle licensing requirements, you must also meet the following criteria to obtain a CDL:

  • Must be 21 years of age or older (some exclusions allow for 18 and older)
  • Must submit your state’s application and pay appropriate fee
  • Provide proof of identity through your Social Security Number and any other information that your state may require
  • Must provide proof of residency
  • Must pass vision test
  • Must pass knowledge exam/written test
  • Must have a medical evaluation completed and submit the proper Medical Examination Certificate
  • Upon passing the knowledge test, you must obtain a Commercial Learning Permit (CLP) and wait a minimum of 14 days to schedule your CDL drivers test
  • Pass pre-trip inspection
  • Pass the road skills driving test (typically you must bring your own vehicle)
  • Pay any necessary CDL fees (varies by state)

In addition to the above requirements, some states may require additional information, so be sure to check your state and local CDL requirements before pursuing. You should also check for a full list of documents and forms needed to obtain CDL.

Truck Driver Training Does Have Costs

If you’ve never driven a truck before, but are wanting to learn, you’ll typically be able to find a driving school in your area, the cost of these schools can often run $5,000-$10,000 but, the do often provide you with a vehicle to take the road skills test with as well as providing you with a vehicle to obtain any state or job required training hours. There are also online resources that can assist you with obtaining a CDL and online practice examinations to practice written versions of the test. Additionally, most states provide a free digital version of their CDL examination book for studying purposes to obtain.

There are many benefits to obtaining a CDL and even if you decide to go to a training school for more experience, your potential to earn in this field is often pretty good and should allow you to pay back a loan quickly.

If you’re interested in obtaining a CDL and will be looking for a job, or if you’re already certified and are seeking an opportunity visit our job postings to find available positions in your area today!

Working in a woodworking or carpentry field is typically very rewarding. You get to create something and make it come to life utilizing your own skill set. It’s a career path that is often sought after and well loved for its flexibility, sense of accomplishment, and interesting qualities.

In addition, carpentry is one of the oldest and most important trades to know. Being able to build and make things goes back hundreds of years and has certainly come a long way that’s to electricity and power tools and a general expansion of techniques and materials.

Of course, there are many reasons why carpenters love their jobs, but we’ve narrowed it down to the top 5 reasons to learn the trade and become a carpenter.

Large Variety of Career Paths:

When becoming a carpenter you have a wide variety of jobs to choose from, in fact carpentry/woodworking is one of the most versatile career paths. You can enter jobs such as: residential contractor, commercial or industrial carpenter, cabinet or furniture maker, niche woodworker, and more with many other opportunities in between. Breaking into this field is relatively easy with many opportunities hiring for carpentry assistants at entry-level with opportunity for growth and advancement. You can even start to teach yourself some of the basics via a quick YouTube video on how to make a new piece of furniture for your home.

Opportunity to Earn Good Salary

While money isn’t everything, it certainly can help and it can feel good to get compensated nicely for a something you created by hand. As previously mentioned, there are many different career paths in carpentry and woodworking which means there can be a large variety in salary for these positions. Skill level, ares of expertise, and location can all affect how much you’ll make in a carpentry level so it’s best to do some research a position that interests you and the median salary in your specific area. However, according to Salary.com the nationwide average for a general contractor ranges anywhere from $49,431 to $65,965 depending on the notes mentioned before. You of course have the opportunity to earn more depending on your speciality, advancement, and if you owned your own business.

Many also enjoy carpentry because it can help save money, if you’re familiar with framing and construction on a home then you can help know how to build one of your own if that suits you, and will help you cut costs. Additionally, you can build your own furniture, additions, fences, decks and more to your home helping you save the costs of labor which typically comes with a high price tag.

Satisfaction and Feeling in Accomplishment

Carpentry and woodworking is a type of career that is quite rewarding. Many of those in this field really love being able to watch the process of something they’re building come to life. Many of those in this field really enjoy what they do and actually like going to their job. This type of field allows you to be creative and express yourself through you work, similarly to how an artist would. This type of career often allows you to set your own hours of work which also leads to high employee satisfaction.

Mental and Physical Benefits

Having increased job satisfaction typically leads to better mental health. This type of field can often be low stress and, similarly to an artist, you’ll get into a zone of creating, building, and enjoying your work to the point where it may even feel like meditation and relaxation since these jobs require focus and attention to detail.

Many of those in this career path are also able to stay in good physical health as this job typically requires daily physical activity. You may often find yourself living heavy materials, standing on your feet for a long time, and moving around a bit. But, overtime you’ll likely decrease your chances for certain illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Job Growth and Interchangeable Skills

With a large growth in the real estate market and new buildings popping up all over the place, a job in carpentry has a high outlook with increased demand expected in certain specialities with an overall demand of nearly 100,000 a year nationwide, according to BLS.gov. Additionally, learning these skill sets can allow you to grow and move around to different types of fields that can require building and making such as a designer or an architect. There has also been an increased demand for niche woodworkers in the last few years with woodworkers being able to create a custom piece, such as custom cabinets, benches, wooden animals, birdhouses, and so much more.

Overall, a job in carpentry is often sought after for its overall employee satisfaction, mental and physical health benefits, job outlook, creativity, ability to learn highly useful skills, and good wages. Because carpentry is a learned skill that is not often taught in school or college, this is also a position that typically only requires a high-school education.

While many jobs and workplaces have had to make Covid-19 appropriate changes to their workforce. None have changed quite as much as the healthcare industry. With increased focus on patient health, implementation of dozens of new safety precautions, and a huge increase in work demands, it can be extremely hard to keep up with and maintain good personal mental health. That’s why we’ve compiled a few ways you can give yourself a mental health check in order to keep you focused and feeling less overwhelmed.

Deep Breaths: While it may be easier said than done, try to find about 10 minutes in your day or when you’re starting to feel overwhelmed and just take a few deep breaths to clear your head. Sometimes just focusing back on ourselves and taking a moment to clear our minds can drastically change the way our day is going. If you have the ability, try taking a quick break out to your car and just sit and breathe.

Time to Yourself: On your days off, try to prioritize yourself. Take the day to do something you love and leave your phone in your pocket so you have less distractions while doing so. Whether it’s a good yoga class, a hike, or just staying home and watching your favorite streaming service, take the day and relax while doing something mindless, if that’s what you like.

Be Mindful Of Your Basic Needs: 4 words: hydration, rest, nutrition, exercise. When feeling so busy and overwhelmed it can be difficult to remember to take care of your own body. You may often find yourself wondering when your last meal was, but knowing you don’t have time for one right now, but try to be more mindful of giving yourself the nutrients you need to move forward. Especially when you’re running a mile a minute, maybe literally, please remember to drink water so that your body runs at its peak performance to keep you going. On your days off, or hours away from home try to remember to get enough rest, try not to think too hard about things going on at work as they’ll be there for you the next day. Getting a full night of restful sleep can mentally prepare you to tackle almost anything the next day. And as a way to keep your body running smoothly while undergoing a lot of stress, try using exercise as an outlet. This can ease your mind and tension, while keeping you in shape and healthy.

Talk to Someone:  Whether it be a family member, friend, or a professional, try to talk to someone about your current situation. Oftentimes talking about things out loud will allow you to letgo and not worry so much about them. At the end of the day we are all humans and make mistakes, but being able to talk about them will take focus off of them and ease your worry. You don’t even have to talk about work stress, but just having a human connection with someone you may not be able to see can really be grounding and bring you back to reality.

While those in the healthcare industry are working extremely hard to keep us safe, we hope our healthcare friends utilize the tips and tricks to stay calm and try not to feel so overwhelmed.We give major kudos to our friends in the healthcare industry and know that we truly could not be making it through the pandemic or life without you.

lucky-at-workplace.jpg

March 17, 2021

There are many different viewpoints on being lucky. Some believe in luck and things happening by chance, while others don’t. We think that you can make yourself a lucky person by changing your perspective and outlook on some things in the workplace and in life.

One way to change your perspective and bring luck in your life is to surround yourself with people you admire and people who are successful in your workplace. Associating with those that you admire and those that are successful around yourself can boost your chances of success and allow you to learn more about becoming the person you admire. This can, in turn, boost your luck and chances of achievements.

Another way to boost your luck in the workplace is to take on a positive attitude. This doesn’t mean simply always being happy, but being able to look at the brighter side of things in life overall. Being positive can boost your energy, mood, and allows you to have life-long success and luck.

You also can boost your luck by developing a hard working ethic and practicing this daily. As they say, hard work pays off and when determining your own fate/luck this can certainly be the case. Breaking the cycle of procrastination and getting things done in a timely manner can boost your chances of success and ultimately set you up for success.

Finally, an important way to boost your chances for achievement, luck, and good karma, if you believe in that, is to do good by others around you and always look for opportunities to help. Helping others not only helps you to feel good, but also looks good for you while being able to help other people. Whether it’s helping your coworker with a difficult task, or volunteering to stay overtime at the office seeking out these chances to help people will almost always bring you luck, positivity, and success in your workplace.
