As one of the top staffing agencies in Houston, Clayton Services knows that not every recent college graduate is able to secure full-time employment on their own. Even with the help of on campus career fairs, counselors and internships, finding a job after graduation isn't always an easy task.
"I've found a bunch of great positions on the internet but they want someone with at least five years of experience."
At Clayton Services, we hear this narrative all the time from candidates, especially recent college graduates with little to no professional experience. If you're finding yourself in this situation, rest assured you are not alone. We understand that there are a lot of job seekers that posses the necessary skills to do these jobs that are often requiring years of experience to be considered for. We also realize that short of buying a time machine and fast forwarding to the future there is not much you can do to make up for the experience required.
An extended period of time searching for employment on the internet and having no success can cause anyone to start feeling hopeless. So if you find yourself having difficulty securing employment on your own, it may be the perfect time to kick those feelings of hopelessness aside and turn to Clayton Services to assist you with your job search. We are constantly looking for talented and skilled candidates for our clients, no matter how much experience they have. At Clayton Services, we recognize that a candidate with years of experience doesn't always mean they are skilled and a candidate with little to no experience doesn't always mean they are unskilled.
"I've applied to hundreds of positions on the internet and have yet to get a call back."
As a recent college graduate, if you've said this before it's probably time to start working with a staffing service to find employment. If you're contemplating working with Clayton Services here are a couple of things to consider:
#1 You'll be able to stop doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results
You've heard it many times growing up, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This same concept applies to your job search. As a job seeker, you must be willing to get out of your comfort zone to achieve your goal of finding employment. If you're not having any luck with your current plan of action then you may want to make a change in your plan. Working with a staffing service is a great way to increase your odds of finding employment.
#2 You're going to be more than just a resume at Clayton Services
Once you meet with a staffing specialist and go through the interview process, they will know much more about you, your skills and your career goals than you could write on your resume. Our staffing specialists will then be able to match you with job openings and companies that fit exactly what you're searching for.
#3 Practice, practice, practice
