This year we have had things that seem a little off, especially with the weather. Single digit temperatures, lots of rain, and that groundhog… I know I am so ready for springtime and the time change, causing longer days.
However, one thing that keeps happening: applicants do not seem to have the desire to clean up and dress for success. Please, if you know anyone looking for work, remind them that they need to present themselves in a clean and neat manner. First impressions still make a difference. We only get one chance to give a first impression.
It is important to educated people and remind them what it takes to get an opportunity for employment. Employment is not guaranteed to anyone. You must work to be selected and then work to prove you are the best fit for the position.
Let’s work together to educate our applicants. It only takes a minute to give advice on something that can set someone closer to the top of the applicant ladder.
Priority Staffing Group has locations in Marion, Illinois; Vandalia, Illinois; and Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Please check out our job board that is updated daily to submit an application.
