Surviving (and Thriving) During a Job Change

Change.

This one little word can cause excitement in some and panic in others.  While the expression is “Change is Good,” it can also be a bit scary, especially when it involves an involuntary change in your employment status.

Here is where we can help.  As your local employment expert in Southeastern Wisconsin, our team of dedicated staff can provide you with support as you navigate the unknown waters that is a job search. Earlier this year, we provided you with some helpful tips on the World of Work Basics and this month we will share the benefits of working with a staffing firm like Nissen Staffing Continuum.

Benefit #1 – Working Knowledge of Your Specific Job Market

Remember, career consultants at Nissen Staffing Continuum are talking to employers every day.  They know which skill sets are in demand, they know what companies are paying and they know who is proactively looking for employees, even though they may not be advertising it.  Take advantage of this information and look to our team of employment experts to be your eyes and ears in the job market.

Benefit #2 – Honest, Straight-Forward Advice

Of course your mom loves your resume and thinks you are grossly underpaid.  But do employers think the same? We’ll evaluate your skills, your experience and your salary expectations and give you an honest answer about whether or not your expectations will likely be met.  We’ll coach you through the job search process and help you identify which skills are most marketable and suggest skills you may want to develop.  While our advice is not always exactly what you want to hear, it is always helpful and well intended.

Benefit #3 – It’s FREE.  That’s right, we said free.

Our clients pay our fees.  Our associates never pay a dime for our services and this is most helpful if you need advice about your resume, or coaching on an upcoming interview or the “inside scoop” about an employer, an interviewer or a benefit package. Take advantage of us. That is why we are here.

Benefit #4 – In many cases, you can “try before you buy.”

If you’re open to a temp-to-hire job, you have a wonderful opportunity to work in a business before actually committing to the position.  Want to know more about the company culture?  Not sure if you want to work in a small business?  Have you always been interested in jobs in manufacturing but are not sure where to start?  No problem.  Actually DOING something is always more insightful than hearing about doing something.  So give it a try and see what you think, and THEN make a longer term decision.  Not your thing?  No problem.  We also offer direct hire placement.

Benefit #5 – We can help you fill in the gaps. 

Not sure what you want to be “when you grow up?”  Are you feeling stressed and not sure which direction you want to go?  Want to change industries but are not sure how? Consider temporary work.  You might find an environment you’d love to call home and you are now connected and have your foot in the door.

Get expert advice on the current job market, honest advice and get your foot in the door, all at no cost to you. Allow our team of experts to help you during this transition.  You’ll be glad you did.  After all, like we always say, it’s not who you know alone, it’s who we know together.
