MAKING YOUR NEXT CAREER MOVE
Job searching can be a random and tedious process not to mention overwhelming with the many media options to choose from in today’s world of technology. If you’re unsure of where to start, who’s hiring and what positions are available in the marketplace then your job search can become a shot in the dark. Your career is extremely important which is why it is vital that your next move must be handled with care. We encourage you to send us your resume so we can facilitate your needs and properly identify a suitable client that matches your personality and skills.
USE A RECRUITMENT FIRM
Recruitment firms work on a one-to-one basis with their candidates and interview each candidate thoroughly to understand their needs. This ensures that they are matched appropriately with a potential employer. Recruiters also will have access to opportunities that are not advertised and will market your particular skill set on your behalf to these potential employers.
Working with a recruitment firm can eliminate a lot of the guess work when seeking a new opportunity. Acting as a liaison between you and the employer, recruiters can provide you with valuable information including the responsibilities of the position, the company culture, etc.
Recruitment firms are a valuable asset to your job search strategy. There is a great opportunity to take advantage of the recruiter’s knowledge to determine whether or not the position is something you’d be interested in pursuing. A recruiter can also provide insight and coach you through the interview process, receiving & accepting an offer, and how to professionally resign from your current position.

SEARCH A JOB BOARD
There are many job boards online and easily accessible. These resources are free for you to utilize. We welcome you to contact us if you have not found what you are looking for.
FIND A CONNECTION VIA SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media has become increasingly important for employment searching as well as employee conduct. PPS can coach you to effectively market yourself and appropriately posture your online presence.
NEWSPRINT OR MAGAZINES
Although growing less popular than their online counterpart, newspapers and industry publications have regular job postings. PPS does however, have access to many opportunities that most individuals are not aware of, are not published and may not even exist yet. Our unique ability to market your individual skill set has created many new win-win situations for both client and candidate. Send your resume to us and get started today!
Your personal network can be an important tool in your job search. Every one of us has a network of contacts that can be utilized in your search. The old saying “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is still relevant. If you spread the word throughout your network your chances of securing a job will increase. However, not all of your contacts are going to be relevant in your search. Take advantage of our extensive network in your area of expertise and increase your success even more. We look forward to working with you.
Job fairs and trade associations are a great method of expanding your network. Attending fairs, networking events and getting active in an association can increase your awareness of opportunities. Some events will have a positive outcome and some may not, however, the contacts you have made may be useful in the future. PPS has a proven track record in increasing your marketability to your specific target market.
