Talent Article

Through these 11 career chats, QTI Recruiters share their job search and career advice!

1. Communication is key, and we want to hear from you! Tell us how your assignment is going. We love hearing what you enjoy about your job.  Equally important is sharing if things are not going well so we can help resolve any issues.  Communicating with your QTI representative is the key to a great job match!

2. Interview coming up? Be prepared with your most recent employment dates and positions held. If you've had significant gaps in work history, be prepared to talk about that.

3. Receive a call about a job or an interview but are running tight on time? It's OK to ask the recruiter to schedule the call at a later date. We want to talk to you when you have time and are best prepared.

4. Still think staffing agencies only have temp-to-hire jobs? This is a common misconception. The QTI Group also seeks talent for direct hire positions and can help with the onboarding process.

5. Find out you're not a fit for the job you applied for? Reach out to your recruiter to learn about QTI's other open positions. Our team is happy to help find you something else that matches your skillset.

6. Nobody likes being ghosted. Including us! If you're interviewing for jobs and decide to pursue a different opportunity, give your recruiter a call. Communication is key to keeping your professional network strong. 

7. Working on your resume? Be thorough when listing previous job responsibilities and skills. There are a lot of transferable skills that can be taken into account when matching you to an opportunity.

8. Triple-check your resume!  Make sure you're sending out an updated resume with the proper dates and work history included. Not sure where to start? Let us know!

9. Be sure to write a list of questions you want to ask during the interview. It demonstrates that you have prepared for the interview and are interested in the company and the position.

10. Whether it is Zoom, Teams, or the phone, participating remotely in work-related calls has become second nature for many. However, when it comes to interviewing, don’t rest on your laurels. It is equally important to prepare for a remote interview as you would an in-person interview.

11. As the interview comes to a close, end by giving a brief re-cap of your skillset and how it will benefit the company. Express your interest in working for the company and in the position. Be sure to ask about the interview process and the timeline for making a decision. Always conclude by thanking the interviewer for their time.
