(Sheridan, Wyo.) — Resource Staffing
of Sheridan has a
message for today's job-seeking students.
"If you have a Facebook page and you’re applying for a job, it’s being
looked at, so keep it clean!” Resource Staffing’s Director of Operations
Jeremy Reynolds advises his clients, which last week included 14
career-bound Fort Mackenzie students.
The students are preparing to enter the workforce in the hopes of advancing
their careers, and to that end, worked with Resource Staffing last week in
an intense mock-interviewing process. The mock interviews were designed to
train the students to prepare for the real deal.
Fort Mackenzie High School teacher Kathleen Pilch invited Resource Staffing
to meet with students one-on-one.
Resource Staffing met with each student individually to evaluate their
resumes, applications for employment and conduct mock interviews. The
students were scored on their interviews and given feedback on the areas
they could make improvements in order to stand out from the crowd.
"It was a lot of time on our part, but getting to interact with each of
these kids was worth it," Resource Staffing CEO Kathy Coleman said after
meeting with the students, reviewing 14 resumes and spending 20-plus hours
working on materials.
“I’d encourage every high school student to remember that today’s employers
are looking at much more than just your resume and how you dress," Reynolds
added — they are looking at your online profiles too.
