Many employers today use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to help with their recruiting and hiring processes. These systems parse through thousands of resumes for selected keywords to save recruiters and hiring managers a lot of time by weeding out less ideal candidates for job postings. Making your resume ATS-friendly can greatly improve the chances that your resume will be seen by the hiring manager. Here are three tips to create a resume that is ATS-friendly.


Acceptable Reasons for Calling Out of Work

Posted by Lexi Albrecht on May 12, 2022 10:45:00 AM

Whether your job is Temporary/ Contract, Temp-to-Hire, Direct-Hire, remote or on-site, calling out of work from time to time is inevitable. You might need to miss work for family emergencies, medical issues, scheduled appointments, etc. Managers understand that their employees are human and life happens, expectedly and unexpectedly. The best thing to do is respectfully and briefly inform your supervisor of why you need to take time off. You don’t need to go into detail, legally there are federal limitations to what an employer can ask when you call out sick, unless you’re covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

5 Company Culture Questions to Ask During an Interview

Posted by Lexi Albrecht on Mar 24, 2022 10:00:00 AM

Millions of employees are joining the Great Resignation and this movement is undoubtedly impacting the new world of work. High turnover is expected to continue to remain elevated this year. Not only are employees quitting at a staggering rate, but employees are quitting within the first few months/ first year of the job. Recent studies have shown that as high as 40% of newly hired employees alarmingly leave almost right after they start, and an additional 10% to 20% leave within the first year. Many different factors are driving this but one of the main influences for making a move so early within the job is poor workplace culture.
