Hire Learning: Decoding Job Descriptions with HirePower

Let’s be honest, half of the job descriptions you read when job searching are convoluted, wordy and ultimately don’t tell you what you’ll be doing in that role. That’s where HirePower comes in. We know inside information to help you decide which jobs you actually want to apply for, tailor your resume to those jobs, and nail your interviews.

Sifting through one job description after another can be monotonous. Eventually they all start to run together. Granted, it is difficult to include every duty of a job, but working with us you will learn as much as possible before applying. Employers are going to detail the most interesting, exciting and specialized aspects of the job so people want to come work for them. We talk directly with companies to learn all of the ins and outs of a job so we can assure they are receiving the best candidates. That means we are able to offer you the best job to fit your skills and interests.

Another great perk of working with HirePower is that we have personal relationships with hiring managers and companies – we know what they really want. Say a job description requires a master’s degree, but you have a set of skills that are equally impressive. We can work behind the scenes with the company to help you land the job. Or say you find a job you want to apply for, but the company really wants to hire internally. We can work with them to set up an interview anyway or discover other options.

At HirePower we are dedicated to your success. Tell us exactly what you want to do and what skills you have. We will work with you to find the job of your dreams!

Hire Learning: The Advantages of Working with a Recruiter Like HirePower

When starting the job search process, it can quickly feel like you’ll never see the light at the end of the tunnel—especially when you’re going it alone. It’s difficult to stand out when there are hundreds of other applicants who might be just as qualified for a position. You may apply for 20 jobs and only hear back from one or two, and often they’re not your top choices.

Working with a recruiter can make job hunting a breeze, at times even enjoyable. We know inside information that job search sites won’t tell you. This will help you stand out among hundreds of applicants and land the job of your dreams.

Often times, job descriptions offered on popular job search sites can be vague and usually aren’t an accurate representation of the job as a whole. We are able to cut through the clutter and tell you what the position actually involves, allowing you to apply for jobs you’re really interested in. Another perk: we can often find out how a company is willing to compromise when it comes to the job description. They may say they require a master’s degree, when in reality you have skills they are willing to accept as an alternative.

The most effective way to job hunt is through connections, but if your personal connections don’t have any leads it’s time to turn to job search sites. Working with us gives you access to our extensive network of connections. This keeps you from spending hours digging through the black hole that is online job searching, giving you more time to prepare for the interview for your dream job.

Another perk of working with HirePower is that we know what your skills are worth and what an employer should pay you based on those skills. Some employers are able to pay more than they say on the job description or in the offer letter. We can work with the company based on their budget to make sure you are fairly compensated for your skills and talent.

Do you have impressive skills and experience but aren’t sure of the best way to translate that to your resume? We can help with this too. Bring us your current resume and we will work with you to create a resume that’s truly reflective of your skills and talents.

Working with a recruiter is one of the best things you can do for yourself as you make your way through the job search process. Turn to the experts to ensure you are applying for jobs best suited for your unique skillset.
