Employee References

August 15, 2018

A Point of Reference!

We've all heard the old saying that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, right? Well, in the employment world that saying holds true especially when it comes to checking professional employment references during the hiring process. Just what are employment references? Simply put, they are a listing of those tried and true supervisors and colleagues from our work life, past and present, who we call upon when we find ourselves searching for our next big employment move.

Client Story: Nothing Personal

August 1, 2018

As part of TriMech’s Staffing group, my job is to reach out to clients. Part of my conversations involve not only listening about their business, but really hearing what they have to say about their company, how it works and the struggles they may be facing.

Making a Career Change? Finding Work Through a Staffing Agency Can Help

Making a career change can be a very frustrating and isolating task. Spending countless hours searching through job postings, updating your resume and filling out applications can feel like a full-time position itself. So why not get a helping hand and let a staffing agency do the heavy lifting for you?

A Sense of Urgency

May 23, 2018

With the current unemployment rate sitting at the lowest it has been in the new millennium, it is important to notice that we have what many would call a “Candidates Market.” This term means that jobs are plentiful and individuals looking for work have more options, and offers, than in the last 17 years, making it difficult for companies to fill their needs. The average American would rejoice as this seems to be something that we as a capitalist nation, have been chasing for quite some time after the market crashed in 2008. But on the other side of that is the employer trying to fill open positions. This is a phenomenon that has been expressed by many of my clients in the engineering field, where a shortage of engineers is always prevalent regardless of unemployment rates. TriMech Staffing sees one solution that could remedy your competition with other companies when offering a candidate a position. We see that remedy as having a sense of urgency.
