    7 Tips for Applying to Our Recruiters in Santa Maria CA

    • Apply Broadly - But Not Too Broadly. At Express Employment Professionals Central Coast, job seekers can apply to multiple job postings at once. We encourage you to apply to any open positions where you think you would be a great fit. But be careful not to spread yourself too thin. Identify your core skillset, then apply to jobs that take advantage of these skills.
    • Communicate Clearly and Concisely. Strong written and verbal communication skills offer a one-two punch when applying for a job. By communicating clearly, you'll demonstrate your value to recruiters in Santa Maria. You'll also show that you can communicate clearly in the workplace. Our advice? Make clear statements, avoid overly wordy language, and keep to the point as much as possible.
    • Reinforce Skills Claims with Evidence. As an applicant, it's important that you bring a "show and tell" approach to your cover letter, resume, and interview. Tell recruiters what your skills are, but don't stop there. You also want to show how you've used these skills in the past by describing situations where they led to a tangible benefit.
    • Triple-Check Your Written Materials. Recruiting firms have a low tolerance for spelling, grammar, and formatting errors. So triple-check your written materials to make sure they are error-free. If possible, have someone you trust perform a thorough proofreading.
    • Practice Interview Questions. When you apply to a recruiting agency in Santa Maria, your initial interview will be with a recruiter, not an employer. That doesn't mean you should take it any less seriously. Practice for your interview by finding common interview questions online and rehearsing your answers in the mirror or with a friend.
    • Dress for the Job You Want. As an applicant to a recruiting agency, you could find yourself considered for any number of available positions. So when you're choosing an outfit for your interview, identify your target position, then base your outfit on that goal.
    • Prepare End-of-Interview Questions. At the end of an interview, recruiters give candidates in Santa Maria the chance to ask questions. It's always a good idea to prepare two or three questions in advance for this part of the interview. Asking questions shows initiative and interest on your part, which is a big plus for recruiting agencies.
