The Importance of Filling Out an Application in its Entirety
When you’re looking for full-time, part-time or temporary work it’s important to approach your job search with the same level of seriousness that you would any job. If you’re not sure where to begin or what kinds of jobs would best suit your talents, working with a Kansas City staffing agency can be a great way to explore a variety of options. Organizations such as these offer a variety of services that are designed to get you working again with a job that suits your skills and needs. Staffing Kansas City provides a number of employment services including office support, accounting, sales and other professional positions that are temporary, direct-hire or contract-to-hire within the Kansas City area.
Once you decide on the staffing agency that is best suited to your needs and skills, then, it’s time to demonstrate to the staffing recruiters the unique skill sets you possess that make you the perfect candidate. At Staffing Kansas City, candidates begin the process with an online application. This application allows the staffing recruiters the opportunity to get to know your skill set through previous work and education history. While filling out an application might feel like an extra step sometimes, it’s very important for the screening process.
It’s particularly critical when you consider that most of us undervalue our skills and natural talents because we make the assumption that everyone has those talents or perhaps they just aren’t a big deal. Trust us when we say that Staffing Kansas City really wants to know about your work and education history. These so-called little details on a staffing application can make the difference when a recruiter is deciding on the right person for the job. For example, let’s say that you’re somewhat of a jack of all trades. You easily learn new tasks such as mastering new software or maybe you are a wiz at organizing people and getting teams to work together. You may not realize it but these kind of skills are directly transferrable into real-world office skills and are qualities that employers throughout the Kansas City area are looking for in quality candidates.
If you make the choice to not fill out the work history and educational background sections on a job application online or on paper, you are not only missing a potential opportunity to share your qualities and skills, but there is also the potential of looking like a lazy person, someone who couldn’t be bothered to take the time to fill out the entire application. Worst of all, incomplete applications end up in the trash, which means wasted time for you, the recruiter and what could have been your potential new employer.
While all staffing agencies wish they could employ every candidate that applies, only the top 3 job seekers receive client interviews. Don’t miss an opportunity when it comes your way. Make each staffing application a platform to show off your skills. When you land that great new position, you’ll be glad that you did!
