five ways to impress recruiters in milwaukee

There are plenty of great executive level jobs that our recruiters in Milwaukee can tell you about, but your resume isn’t the only thing we consider when we’re matching up potential candidates with executive and management positions. If we think you have the qualifications to do the job, we’ll want to meet you in person and discuss your career goals as well as the requirements of the jobs we’re trying to fill. If you really want to impress us, keep the following suggestions in mind, which apply to any job interviews as well as your initial interview with the Lawler Group.


Dress For The Company’s Culture

It’s easy to pick out a basic suit to wear to every job interview; it’s harder to choose an outfit that is both appropriate and memorable for the particular culture of a company. Sometimes playing it too safe simply makes you forgettable. If you’re applying to a company with a very conservative dress code, dress the part but don’t go so far down that road that you end up being to “beige.” Men can choose a necktie with a pop of color, women can accessorize with something stylish and unusual. If the position is a creative one, the parameters of what is appropriate will be more flexible. We want to know that you have the confidence to wear something that’s suitable while still having your own, distinctive style.


Honesty Is Still The Best Policy

Studies have shown that more than half of people who are candidates for executive or management positions fudge the information on their resumes. This doesn’t mean that you should do the same. You also don’t want to simply tell us what you think we want to hear. If you aren’t forthcoming about what you’re really looking for, it will be more difficult for us to help you find the right position for you. You also need to be honest about your strengths and weaknesses. Nobody is perfect, and insinuating that you have no flaws isn’t the right way to impress recruiters in Milwaukee. Yes, you should focus on your strengths and minimize your faults, but that doesn’t mean pretending they don’t exist.


Take The Time To Learn About The Company And The Position

If you’ve done your homework, you’ll walk into your interview with our recruiters in Milwaukee knowing something about both the job you’re being considered for and the company offering it. Asking us to fill you in on the company means you didn’t research anything on your own. You should always, always put forth the effort to learn something about the company culture, its size, what the company does and the names of at least a few people in the division in question. The more time and effort you put into learning about the company, the more impressed we’ll be with your incentive and drive.


Memorize Your Work History

If our recruiters in Milwaukee ask you questions about your work history, you should be able to quickly and accurately confirm the information on your resume without having to look things up. Many employers are suspicious of candidates who can’t instantly tell them when they worked for a company and when they moved on. While it may not always be fair, the fact is you should always know dates, projects and names from your previous jobs and be able to instantly recall them. Take the time to memorize the information on your resume so that you can answer any questions about it without fumbling for an answer.

Let Recruiters In Milwaukee Know What You’re Looking For

You may not be the ideal fit for the job we initially contact you about, but we won’t know that until we’ve interviewed you. At that point, we’ll be better able to match you with other opportunities if you’re honest about what you’re looking for in your next job opportunity. What draws you to a particular opportunity? How do you want to contribute to the company?  The more our recruiters in Milwaukee know about what you’re looking for, the more likely it will be that we will be able to recommend you for positions that are a good fit for your talents and experience.


A good interview with our recruiters in Milwaukee is any interview that not only gives us an idea of who you are, but what you’re looking for so that we can work together to find the perfect fit for your talents and goals.
