Looking for Work During the Holidays: Why it Works

It’s the holidays! Time for great food; enjoying the red, green, yellow, blue, and white lights; listening to noels as well as goofy old-fashioned holiday songs (which still make you a tad weepy in a good way because they remind you of your grandmother); watching children’s faces light up with delight at special holiday decorations; getting together with friends and loved ones; shopping for gifts for those you love (and even those you’re not that keen on).

So who could possibly have time for job hunting?

holiday job search los angeles

You do!

At the least, you should make the time for job hunting because as busy as you are getting ready for the holidays, as much as you may not want to look for work (it’s not nearly as much fun anticipating the hunt for a job as it is the hunt for the perfect gift), looking for work during the holidays is a terrific idea because (drum roll): employers still have holes in their employee rosters! What’s more, here in December 2017, it’s still a candidate’s market and employers pretty much are desperate to find good people.

Yes, employers may distracted by the holidays as you are and hiring decisions may be put on hold later in the month as many people take vacation and some businesses close for a few days. But if you keep your full-court press on your SoCal job search at this time you’ll keep that momentum going in your search (a job hunt thrives on momentum).

Take a look below for X reasons why looking for work during the holidays…..works!

  1. Not everyone can stay focused on the job search, so you’ll have less competition.

We understand all too well how distracting the month of December can be. And not everyone can compartmentalize their different priorities – certainly not as well as you can! And because you can focus on the search, you can snag an interview from someone who’s distracted by holiday events and to-do lists.

Yes, you may find that hiring managers are a bit slower to get back to you. You also may find that when you are hired your new manager may say you won’t be starting until after the New Year. (But that’s OK, because instead of being “unemployed,” you’ll be “on vacation” and you can truly enjoy the holidays!)

  1. Can you say “Networking opportunities galore!”?

Take advantage of the many holiday gatherings and parties held at this time of year to – discreetly – connect with people who could possibly help you in your search. Not sure how to network at holiday gatherings? This article has several good tips.

  1. Many companies have “use it or lose it” budget policies.

Many department/hiring managers are given department funding that requires them to use all of the funds budgeted to them each year or else the money not used won’t show up in their budgets next year. (“After all,” their manager may reason, “they didn’t use it this year, so they don’t need it next year.”)

So hiring managers may be eager to fill an open position before the year ends and you may find yourself being called in for interviews and getting an offer faster than you might have anticipated.

  1. Many holiday positions can turn into permanent work.

Seasonal jobs often do turn into full-time work even after the holiday season ends. Savvy department managers know they would be foolish to let great workers go and so you well could be pleasantly surprised to be offered the chance to continue working after January 1.

So there’s one more reason to look into seasonal/holiday work if your “real” job hasn’t yet panned out.

  1. Temporary assignments also often become full-time opportunities.

Working with a staffing service such as Helpmates during the holiday season – or any time of the year – can help you bring in some cash while you look for work.

Yet many of our associates take on a temporary assignment and later are hired by our client company as their own employee. This happens regularly throughout the year and during the holidays.

So if you’re looking for your next opportunity, take a look at our current openings and, if one or more look interesting, follow the directions for applying.

Happy Holidays!

Top 6 Skills Employers Are Seeking in 2017

Thinking about a job change in the New Year? Here at Helpmates and across the country, dynamic, innovative companies are looking for talent to help them reach new heights in 2017.

But do you have the skills they’re seeking?

Los Angeles Jobs

With more options than ever, today’s employers are looking for certain skill sets in talent, regardless of position. The following list includes 5 of the top skills employers are seeking in the New Year:

  • Customer service. Strong customer service skills will never go out of style. And in today’s businesses, every role is essentially a customer service role. PRO TIP: Be prepared to answer questions about delivering exceptional service in your next job interview. Even better? Step it up a notch and be proactive about your focus and abilities on delivering exceptional service (to customers, or even other employees!).
  • Have a knack for building websites or helping your family through their technical challenges? It could be time to put those skills to use in your career! Many employers are now looking for tech-savvy employees in a variety of non-technical roles.
  • From inter-office memos to emails and other internal documents, you might not realize just how much writing you do in a work day! The ability to clearly and concisely convey meaning and drive action is highly desirable in just about every role — bring samples or be prepared to discuss why your business communications are effective to make a positive impression on interviewers.
  • Problem-solving. We all hit the occasional road block at work. But how we work through those challenges helps determine our strength and success as an employee. Many employers request employees who have strong problem-solving skills, for a variety of roles. To help prepare for your next interview, start thinking now about times where you were presented with a challenge and worked your way through it (and lessons you learned along the way).
  • Sure, most of us have to, well, talk, during the work day, but have you thought about your verbal skills from the perspective of an employer? Probably not, but it’s likely time to start working on your verbal skills. One of the most critical times you’ll need those skills is when you’re in an interview! Practice answering interview questions so you can accurately convey your message during interviews. But also think about how your verbal interactions affect your colleagues and bosses once you’ve landed the job. Are you accurately and clearly conveying the right message? Are you getting great results when you ask for assistance or when you deliver feedback? These are critical components of a successful career, and employers will be listening carefully to see whether your skills measure up.
  • Okay, this isn’t a skill per se, but it’s still extremely important to employers today. If you walk into an interview brimming with enthusiasm for the role and company, you will make a positive impression on interviewers. Keep the enthusiasm going in your thank you notes, second interviews and when you start the job — your new career adventure will most definitely be off to a great start!

10 Ways to Stand Out on Your Temporary Work Assignment

Temporary work assignments offer excellent opportunities to expand your skill set, get to know different industries and employers and advance your career while taking advantage of short-term, flexible work arrangements.

Employers are continuing to take advantage of the benefits temporary workers offer them as well. This means that professionals across a range of disciplines can expect more opportunities for temporary work assignments in the coming years. Sure, the length of your temporary assignments may vary, but each offers an excellent opportunity for you to not only benefit your career, but to make a great impression. And standing out while making a great impression will help you land the best temporary work assignments with the most desirable employers.

How to make a great impression on temporary work assignmentsMarch blog 1

Try these 10 steps to stand out on your next temporary work assignment (for the right reasons!) and boost your career:

  1. Always arrive for work on time. This is one of the most basic pieces of job advice out there, yet it always bears repeating — because many employees don’t arrive to work on time! For the purposes of any job, “on time” usually means arriving about five or 10 minutes early. If you like to say hello at the water cooler, drop off your lunch or do any small tasks before getting started on your actual job duties, 10 or 15 minutes early may be more appropriate. Arriving “on time” means starting work on time. So take the necessary steps to ensure you’re starting work on time every day.
  2. Ask questions and be engaged. Even for experienced professionals, every job comes with a bit of training. Take notes, ask questions and show that you’re truly interested in learning the right way to do things at your employer.
  3. Be a “team” player. Show a genuine interest in your coworkers and be friendly. Even for a one week or 30-day assignment, being approachable and friendly is always appreciated, and is more likely to earn you a favorable review.
  4. Show that you’re flexible. Sometimes the exact nature of a position evolves or changes, or an employer notices another need after you’ve begun your assignment. If you can be adaptable and step up to help in a new area (even one that you didn’t expect), you’ll make life much easier for your employer.
  5. Present yourself professionally. There are a few elements to this – avoid getting caught up in any office gossip or politics (which can happen, even on shorter assignments) and also be sure to dress appropriately for the position and office where you’ll be working. If you arrive on your first day and notice everyone else is adhering to a certain standard, show up on your second day with something that’s more in line with the team.
  6. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It may be tempting to try and do everything yourself to make a good impression on temporary work assignments, but sometimes asking for help is the best way to make a good impact. No one expects you to know everything!
  7. Don’t wait around for next steps. If you’ve finished a task or series of tasks, don’t wait around for your manager to find you and tell you what to do next. Instead, seek him or her out, share that you’ve completed your tasks and ask what else you can do to help.
  8. Be polite. Saying “please” and “thank you” goes a long way in every aspect of life, but especially in an office.
  9. Pay attention to details. It can be overwhelming when you’re inundated with details on the first days of a new temporary work assignment, but pay attention to them. Write them down, add meetings to your phone or calendar – do what it takes to ensure you aren’t missing key meetings or crucial details.
  10. Learn about the company. Your Helpmates recruiter will provide you with information about your next company, but take the time to not only read what they provide, but to do your own research as well. Showing up to your temporary assignment with some knowledge about the company and its goals will show that you value your time with them as much as they value your contributions!

How to (Quietly) Conduct a Job Search

Three out of four employees within a given company are actively searching for a job. It’s definitely a candidate’s market right now, and employers are hiring. But searching for a new job while working at your current one can feel like a challenge.

Use some discretion during your job search.

Conducting a job search with discretion while you’re employed requires some extra steps, but it’s far from impossible. Follow these steps to protect your privacy and stay under the radar during your job search:HM2

  1. Update your LinkedIn privacy settings. One of the first things you should do when preparing for your job search is update your LinkedIn profile to ensure you’re putting your best foot forward. But as you’re making updates to your LinkedIn profile, you may be broadcasting your changes and intentions to your connections. To keep your changes under wraps, visit the Privacy & Settings page by moving your mouse to the top right of LinkedIn (where your photo is located). On the expanded menu that appears, scroll down to “Privacy & Settings” and click. Scroll down to “Privacy Controls” and turn off your “Activity Broadcasts.” You can also change other settings if you’d like to take another step to protect your privacy (this can be particularly effective if you’re connecting with hiring managers or recruiters – “Select Who Can See Your Connections” is the setting to update in that instance).
  2. Be careful when networking. Spreading the word about your impending job move can help you build some momentum and increase your network of contacts. But proceed with caution – once you start telling others about your job search, you are essentially “all in” and have no choice but to move forward. Additionally, how you present yourself during networking opportunities is important. Stressing that you’re happy in your current job but open to new opportunities can help demonstrate your aspirations without sounding desperate or negative about your current company.
  3. Think about references. It is nearly impossible to share references from your current employer during a job search. Be careful when compiling references for your new career opportunities. A trusted colleague at your current employer (absolute certainty at this person’s discretion and support is essential) or supervisors or colleagues from previous employers, can help fill the gap left by any current managers. Also, it’s important to note that many employers understand and appreciate that candidates are searching for new opportunities while still employed. Discuss this fact openly with new potential employers — they will often make job offers contingent on positive references. From there, it’s up to you to have a strong conversation with your current boss (and persuade him or her to provide you with a good reference) when you eventually get an offer. As in many areas of business, clear and open communication here is essential.
  4. Partner with a recruiter. Finding a new job is in and of itself a full-time job for many people. If you’re working 40 hours a week and simultaneously looking for a new job, it could be too much. When you partner with a staffing firm, your recruiter will help you polish your resume, prepare for interviews and most importantly — will look for job opportunities that match your goals. Your recruiter will operate with discretion while searching for your next great career opportunity, so you can focus on continuing to do a great job at your current employer.

4 Keys For Changing Careers and Breaking Into a New Industry

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics doesn’t track career changes as part of its extensive data, but that doesn’t stop career experts from talking about their prevalence. One common number that you might see is that the average person goes through seven careers in a lifetime.

HM_BlogPhoto

You may not change careers seven times in your life, but the reality is that many of us will change careers at least once. Taking the leap and jumping into a new field can be both intimidating and stressful – and landing a job in your new field can be particularly challenging in today’s job market. One of the biggest challenges associated with changing careers is convincing recruiters that you are serious about your move, and aren’t simply “dabbling” in a change. Reduce the challenge and set yourself up for success in your new career with these four keys for changing careers and breaking into a new industry: 

  1. Constantly look for education opportunities. Many colleges offer certificate programs in new fields of study, and they often take significantly less time to complete than a full bachelor’s or master’s degree. You’ll be taking high-level courses with industry experts, and you’ll simultaneously be expanding your network within your new field. Experts often also speak at civic events and local libraries, sharing industry knowledge and insights – be sure to read local business publications and blogs to see what relevant speakers will be speaking in your area. Then, be sure to attend, take notes and ask questions!
  2. Get out and volunteer. Depending on your specific town, there are dozens to hundreds (or more) of nonprofit organizations in dire need of volunteers. Volunteer positions offer an incredible opportunity to gain real world, on-the-job experience, plus, board members and other volunteers are typically experienced professionals in their fields. The results you generate during your volunteer opportunity are also prime opportunities to impress potential employers! You typically won’t be paid for volunteer work, but you’ll be gaining experience and generating real results – items that boost your resume and increase your hireability when meeting with potential employers.
  3. Start writing. Once you’ve started learning more about your new field and gaining experience through volunteer work, write about what you’re doing and learning. Recruiters will do an internet search for information about you once they’ve received your resume. What will recruiters find about you? You’re working hard to gain knowledge and experience in your new field – writing about it ensures recruiters will find information that demonstrates knowledge in your new field and positions you as someone with experience and savvy. Sites like Tumblr and WordPress offer free and easy-to-use tools for posting blogs – sign up and start writing about your new career.
  4. Get involved with networking groups (local and online). In just about any career blog you’ll see tips about networking. It really is critical in any job search, but it’s particularly important when you’re changing careers. Most local papers list business networking meeting times and locations, and you can also search meetup.com for a list of networking groups in your area.  Get out there, talk to people, meet people in your and other fields, and ask them questions. Ask about how they got into their role, what it takes to succeed in their fields, and what advice they might give someone making a career transition. Fortify those relationships by connecting on LinkedIn, then join relevant LinkedIn groups (and groups relevant to your new area of specialty) to see what advice and topics people in similar situations are discussing. You’ll not only gain critical insight into how to make a career change, you’ll keep building that network of contacts. The value in an expanded professional network is incredible!

Hot Jobs: Call Center Professionals

An Introduction

The call center industry has been growing consistently across the world over the past decade, and with growth expected to continue well into the next decade, call center professionals are in demand with employers across Southern California. With this increased demand, employers are struggling to identify and hire the most experienced candidates. Your resume offers an opportunity to demonstrate your value to employers within this competitive market.

Get Your Resume in Shapecall center jobs

Depending on your area of specialty, your call center career background may fall into a range of categories, including: customer service, technical support and sales. But to stand out in the current call center job market, you’ll need a resume that effectively “sells” you to employers. These tips can help:

  • Focus on numbers. For most call center jobs, numbers are critical. Whether its call duration, sales percentages or call resolutions, your previous call center jobs have likely focused on achieving specific numbers. Showcase your specific accomplishments on your resume – using those concrete numbers wherever possible. All businesses speak the language of efficiency and accomplishments, so be sure to make them a focal point of your resume.
  • Avoid a task list. Most call center jobs feature the same primary tasks. Potential employers can tell what your day-to-day life was at a previous job simply by looking at the title – don’t waste valuable resume space by rehashing daily tasks. Once exception to this rule is to include specialty software or technologies you may have used or are familiar with. You can include this information within each position, or in a separate section. But eliminate tasks and other “fluff” that can dilute the effectiveness of your resume.
  • Keep it brief. On average, recruiters spend five to seven seconds looking at your resume before determining if they want to move forward with you in the hiring process. The first two bullet points will help make your resume more impactful (numbers especially pop to recruiters), but the final tip to help make your call center resume more effective is to keep it brief. Your resume should rarely be longer than one page, and you should avoid long paragraphs or especially long bulleted lists.

What To Do Next

Here at Helpmates, we match experienced call center professionals with employers across Southern California. Our experienced team can help you hone your resume and prepare for interviews for leading call center jobs that will help you reach your career goals. Contact us to get started.

Understanding Your Social Job Search

A recent study found that nearly 40% of employers use social media to screen potential job candidates. Potential employers are looking for you on social media, which means two things: 1) If you’re not actively searching for jobs on social media, you’re missing out, and 2) You should be carefully honing your social presence to put your best foot forward for employers.

Social Media Job SearchThose are two of the “cardinal rules” to consider when it comes to your social job search. To ensure your social media accounts aren’t working against you, try following these tips: 

  • Update (and check) your privacy settings. Social privacy settings are there to protect you from unwanted eyes on your personal information, but they can be tricky to maintain. In particular, Facebook frequently updates its privacy settings, and often times your settings are set to their default after the changes are made (often leaving your posts and pictures public until you update them again). Stay diligent about privacy settings and check them frequently.
  • Expect zero privacy. Are you absolutely certain that there aren’t any pictures of you online that are publicly available? Maybe you wrote some online reviews a few years ago for your favorite band? The fact is, whether you have updated your privacy settings or not, employers can still find plenty of information about you to make decisions on your hirability and character.
  • Understand you have (limited) protection from the law. Employers are prohibited from making hiring decisions or discriminating because of race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy status, national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information. However, you are not protected from an employer drawing conclusions regarding, for example, your professionalism or good judgment based on what is publicly available about you online.
  • Take control of your name. If you’re not on all social media sites, you could potentially lose “your name” on those sites. So go into Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram and About.me and set up basic profiles (using the same professional image for each profile). This prevents confusion if someone else by your name is the first person to show up in a search by recruiters (and also prevents someone with a poor reputation from potentially affecting your job search).

What other tips or tools have you used to enhance your social job search? Here at Helpmates, we work with candidates to put their best foot forward, online and in traditional resumes and job interviews. To find your next career opportunity, search our available jobs in Southern California or contact us today.

Job Search 2013: What we’ve learned, and what’s to come

Three key points to take away from 2012

The job market is vastly different than it was just a few short years ago, as social media sites gain clout and cell phone technology surpasses any predictions. Three distinct trends have emerged from 2012, all vital to the modern job seeker.

Photos

On every site where you have an Internet presence, it needs to be accompanied by a professional photo. It’s best to have a series of photos taken, so you can use different snapshots for your social profiles, author bios, and blog posts. A photo gives you credibility: even if the person viewing it has no connection to you, they are more likely to click on the profile or believe the article when there is a face to associate with the name. While you may be hesitant about splashing yourself across the web, recognize that this has taken the place of an interview as the initial visual contact between you and a potential employer. If there’s nothing there, you lose a valuable chance to connect face-to-face, even if it’s only one-sided.

Recommendations

As the Internet shrinks the world, connections become increasingly important. This is reflected in the hiring process: instead of the traditional process of calling references, employers are casting a wider net of a potential hire’s companions. Through the “recommend” feature on LinkedIn and similar options on other social networking sites, coworkers and friends can vouch for you—and potential employers take notice. No longer is it enough to list three contacts and their phone numbers; with hundreds of friends and interactions visible to companies, all data involving you factors into a hiring decision. This can seem daunting at first—but when you leverage it right, you can boost your standing through other people’s words, which is automatically considered more reliable than self-promotion.

Branding

When you add professional pictures to online interactions, you’re well on your way to achieving the final, most comprehensive step toward an effective self-presentation. Building your identity into a virtual brand ensures you have the recognizability and legitimacy to be a viable candidate for a position. Stay active on social networks, write guest posts for blogs in your field, keep an up-to-date YouTube channel—a few years ago, these would have been considered leisurely activities, but as the line between work and life blurs, they now factor into your professional persona. By spreading your name through your field, and integrating it with your picture and profiles, you’ll market yourself better than an application or resume ever could. You’ll build an identity, one that employers will see and value.

What to expect in 2013

The job market is becoming even more specialized, and potential hires will have to stay on their game if they want to be top contenders for desirable positions. Certifications and niche degrees will become more important, as is any specialization within your area of expertise. Those doing the hiring are beginning to rely more on analyzable data to target their ideal candidate; by the end of 2013, there is sure to be a new list of requirements to land your dream position.

How to Define Your Employment Brand. And Why It Is Important

Branding has become an essential part of marketing your business to customers. However, many employers don’t realize that branding strategies can also help you sell your company to current and potential employees—resulting in a stronger workforce that pays off in big dividends for your business.

An employment brand paints a picture of your company’s internal culture, attitudes, environment, and beliefs, letting people know what it’s like to work for you. There are several advantages to developing your employment brand that not only strengthen your team, but also spill over into customer satisfaction and community goodwill.

Here, we’ll take a look at some of the benefits of having a clearly defined employment brand.

Increase your employee retention

Every employer is familiar with the costs of high turnover. Lost time and lost production, administrative paperwork for termination, severance or unemployment pay, and all the expenses and hassle associated with hiring and training can add up to substantial losses.

With a strong employment brand, you can more readily identify employment candidates who suit your business culture. The closer the fit for the employee, the longer they’re likely to stick around and enjoy their work. Defining your employment brand also helps you attract the most relevant candidates. If people have a clear picture of what it’s like to work for your company, you’ll receive more applicants who are truly interested in a business environment like yours. You’ll be able to cut down on your budget for advertising openings, spend less time weeding through applicants, and avoid last-minute hiring mistakes. This means a lowered turnover and reduced investments in future hiring and training expenses.

Build your employee engagement

In the process of defining your employment brand, you’ll arrive at a set of values for your company that your employees can support, rally around, and spread to their peers—and your customers. Employee engagement has proven effective at increasing customer satisfaction, because engaged employees who enjoy their work naturally put forth greater effort, and produce higher quality products and services.

In fact, according to a 2011 study from CareerBuilder, 70 percent of job seekers are willing to accept less than their desired salary if the company has a strong employment brand. The unified message of a brand helps employees feel they’re making valuable contributions to a larger cause than themselves.

Improve your resource allocation

Finally, a clear employment brand lets you invest your resources where they are most needed to further your company’s growth and success. When you define your values as an employer, you can apply them to all of your investments and company initiatives, ensuring that you’re maintaining the most important aspects of the business.

With a defined employment brand, it’s easy to say “no” to investments that don’t adhere to your values and won’t further your growth. An employment brand helps ensure that every dollar counts, resulting in a loyal and fully engaged team of employees that will propel your company to success.

We’re here to help
