YOUR INTERVIEW WITH CANSTAFF

MEETING WITH A RECRUITER

CanStaff is constantly on the lookout for skilled and qualified candidates to match our clients. Whether you're seeking a full-time opportunity or a contract position, CanStaff conducts in-person interviews with every candidate to understand their aspirations and skill set.

 

The two primary advantages of working with a CanStaff recruiter are priority and access. As a CanStaff candidate, you gain access to career opportunities that aren't always visible to the public. Our clients often prefer to make hiring decisions and expand their teams without being overwhelmed by a flood of applicants from major job boards or public posting sites. Moreover, when a CanStaff recruiter discusses a specific position with you, you receive immediate consideration without the uncertainty of a typical job application process. Think of it as a fast pass to the front of the line!

HOW TO STAND OUT

There are several effective strategies to achieve this:

  1. Highlighting specific achievements that contributed to your past employers' success, such as exceeding sales expectations, implementing cost-saving measures, maintaining perfect attendance, or renegotiating contracts to save money.

  2. Emphasizing quantifiable accomplishments that differentiate you from other candidates.

  3. Tailoring your resume and interview responses to focus on results and concrete accomplishments.

At CanStaff, we believe that showcasing your contributions to previous employers is the most effective way to stand out and secure your desired position, regardless of your job title or tenure.
