North Coast Hot Jobs Sep. 13

Hello job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/document/323929224/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Sep-12

To get hired with some organizations, they require that you fill out their customized online applications. Some of these applications include an assessment tool. These assessment tools help the employer determine if the job candidate has the qualities that employers looks for. Sometimes they have scale options. For example, they could have five possible answers such as always, most of the times, half of the time, a few times and never. These answers must be answered accurately. If you answer the questions so that you appear like the perfect possible employee, then they will see that in your answers and you will be passed over for any possible job opening.

Not all jobs available are posted. It is not uncommon for employers to ask their current employees, friends, colleagues or other individuals if they know someone that could fill an upcoming vacancy. Networking is very important. Put the word out to people you know that you are looking for work. They just might know someone, who knows someone, etc. Having someone on the inside vouch for you can be of immense help and could bypass some employment hurdles.

If you know of any Alaskan Native or Native American that is disabled and is having a hard time looking for work, ask them to contact me at 360-460-7549.

Have a good one.
