Tips to get hired here with a felony
Here’s a link to the careers page at Adecco with open positions. You can also create a job alert so you’ll be emailed right away about new opportunities.
What if you’re not looking to work at Adecco? What if you just want to apply to one of their client companies? Well, they tell you what staffing agencies look for here, so know what to expect when you apply through their services.
Take note that the job postings often list the competencies they’re looking for. Many of the ones listed are called soft skills. This includes things such as:
- Active listening
- Strong written and verbal communication
- Problem solving
- Positive attitude
- Strong work ethic
Basically, it comes down to having good people skills and personality traits that will help you on any job. (Here’s an article by Alison Doyle that explains why these are important to employers.) Furthermore, when your job involves working with people all day, these skills become very valuable.
So, let us tell you how you can stand out!
First, look at the particular soft skills for the position you’re applying for. Now, think of how you can demonstrate each of them.
For instance, if being a team player is one, what example do you have of being part of a team? Remember, your examples don’t have to be related to paid work. Have you ever played team sports? How about volunteer work? Did you spend any time in the armed forces? What about a work assignment in prison such as kitchen detail?
It’s also important to review your resume to see how you can highlight these competencies. That’s one sure way to match your resume better to the job you’re applying for, which gives you better chances.
Adecco’s website has some very good content about who they want to hire. The following is what they have to say about inclusion:
“We respect and value the different life experiences our people bring to our business. No matter what your nationality, gender, race or religion, if you can make a positive impact in your role then it’s your skills that matter. And nothing else.”
