National Careers Week: How Employers and Candidates can Approach Careers

March 4th – March 9th is National Careers Week, and as one of the leading recruitment agencies in Wakefield, Juice would like to acknowledge both employers and jobseekers as part of the career finding process. Below, we have listed a couple of tips for each party which can be implemented in the future.

Employers

For employers, a common difficulty can be noticing the difference between a candidate searching for a job to pay the bills, and one that is genuinely looking for a specific career path.

A foreboding indication of a candidate who is seeking the latter is through knowing their stuff. Informed candidates often understand the basics of the vacant role and potentially other factors that may impact the industry which the role is in. This is often indicated through the questions they ask at the interview stage.

Another indicator that a candidate is after a career as opposed to a job is through the ideas they bring to the table. This is common in marketing vacancies, where the candidate may be required to meet a brief or construct a presentation. A candidate who brings and articulates ideas that the business hasn’t already tried yet, or perhaps that the business recognise as an opportunity suggests they are able to contribute to the company’s goals.

Candidates

Searching for a career requires a lot of thought and preparation too. Even within your specific field, you may have to tailor your CV and cover letter to match the job description. Using industry terminology to illustrate what you are seeking and how you think you can match the position will help create the impression that the role is right for you. Be careful not to use words out of context or for the sake of it, as the employer will be able to see through this.

Whilst experience and know-how are important for an employer to know that you’re capable of doing the job, it is also important that you are able to communicate. This isn’t just communication in person, as being able to respond to emails and phone calls efficiently and professionally also displays abilities that you are likely to be using on the job.

At Juice Personnel, we have been helping employers find their ideal candidate, as well as helping job seekers find the right career for them, for over 15 years. We do this over a range of industries, including Marketing, Logistics and Finance.

Testimonials

"We have never used a recruitment agency before so needed an agency that understood what we needed and who we could build a long term partnership with. Juice have been great and found us a candidate who was a perfect fit for our business."

Northern Media

"From day one Juice Personnel have been very professional, informative and truly outstanding when searching and placing me in employment. From the moment I first walked through the office doors to meet with one of their representatives I have been nothing but pleased and extremely satisfied with Juice. They have managed to source a position close to home with outstanding credentials which I am extremely grateful for. I have found that Juice are by far the best agency I have dealt with in West Yorkshire and I would highly recommend them to friends, family or any business associates that may need form of employment. Although I have not been with Juice long, I know that the relationship can only blossom and go from strength to strength."

Richard Allen- Long term temporary

"Hi ladies Just to let you know that I have accepted an offer of permanent employment this afternoon so I will no longer require your services. Thank you for everything over the past couple of months, I am really grateful for the temp placements and interviews you have sourced for me. "

Fiona Baker - Registered Candidate

"Rebecca has been thoroughly professional and supportive right from her initial call after I submitted my on line application, throughout the various interview stages ,offering help and guidance with my presentation and finally her call to tell me that I had been successful in securing my new position. She boosted my confidence at every stage!! To come in to see me on my first day with a bouquet of flowers to congratulate me was a really unexpected but lovely and thoughtful thing to do Thank you so much! "

Donna Roebuck - Permanent Placement

"I have worked for several different agencies in my working life and Juice Personnel is in my opinion the friendliest and most helpful team of people I have come across. They go out of their way to help and support their clients. I would happily recommend them. I am excited about my new journey that I didn't feel was possible. I mean every word of this Thanks all!! "

Lisa Baker - Temporary Worker

"After finishing university I was looking for paid legal work which is very hard to come by on a temporary basis. Juice were fully professional yet had a friendly approach to finding me a job and succeeded. I am now working in a field that I love and couldn't thank them more!"

Rebecca Beech - Summer Temporary Worker

"I have work with a lot of recruitment agencies over the years, yet find Juice personal one of the top agencies. When they promise to ring you they do so when they say they will, and when I got lost trying to find the office, they were patient and kindly directed me to their office! Highly recommend Juice. Thank you for finding my new role. "
