Q: How did you originally hear about The Job Shop?
Q: Can you tell us a little about the permanent position you’ve recently been hired into? Are you excited about it?
A: I’m the Resident Services Coordinator for a Senior housing apartments. I will be coordinating activities and events for the seniors. I’m very excited, I enjoy it a lot, working with the seniors, and it makes the day pass by really quick. Being very close to home is also a huge plus.
A: Patience and persistence. Never reducing the quality of effort nor productivity applied to my duties just because it was a temporary assignment.
Q: Do you have any tips for readers hoping to duplicate your success?
A: Remain focused on the task that has been given. Project positive energy, be flexible with duties, and build a good trustworthy relationship with your work peers, supervisors and any customer/clients you deal with on a daily basis.
Q: What was most challenging about your job search, and how did you overcome it?
A: Not getting interviews, or getting interviews but no offers. Before using the Job Shop, I would sometimes get call backs regarding how they loved my resume, some would schedule phone interview, others walk in interview, but very few would make any offers. Once the Job Shop interviewed me, I was working within a week and a half. They already had open opportunities that fit my talents which I could start right away.
