3 Strategies To Land Your Dream Job

January 19th, 2015


Good news! The employment market is the strongest it’s been in the last six years. And, according to CareerBuilder’s annual job forecast, more than one third of employers expect to add full-time, permanent employees in 2015.

Among employers planning to add full time, permanent staff, two of the five areas they are hiring for include administrative and customer service. Even more good news? ABR Employment services places people in these types of positions at our client companies.

According to Donna Rosato, a senior writer at MONEY magazine, there are a few key things you should do to help you land your dream job this year.

1. Be Top of Mind – Look at what your online presence says about you. If you have a LinkedIn profile, use language in your LinkedIn profile that matches the type of positions you’d like to land so recruiters find you when they search for candidates.

2. Try Employment Agency Work –  ABR is an employment agency. Working with an agency that provides supplemental staffing to employers is expected to pick up over the next 12 months as a way for employers to fill in-demand roles. According to CareerBuilder, 46% of employers plan to hire temporary or contract workers in 2015, up from 42% last year. Of these employers, 56% plan to transition some temporary or contract workers into full-time, permanent roles. Last year at this time, 65% of ABR Talent were hired into permanent, full-time positions at Logistics Health, Inc. in their call center!

3. Be Open to Opportunities – If someone from a staffing agency calls you or a friend passes on information about a job opening, have an open mind. Ask questions even if you’re not interested in the position or looking for work. You may have a friend or family member that is perfect for the job; you can pass on the information to them. Also, staffing agencies generally have multiple openings and if you’re not interested in the one they called you about, they may know about another opportunity that’s a better fit.
