Oh, right here…

Capitalize on the Keene Community

Residents of Keene already appreciate the community’s thriving culture. Set against a very rural, Norman Rockwellian-type backdrop, Keene is actually a diverse town with an exciting assortment of things to do. Activities of all kinds from the arts to athletics, lend themselves to Keene’s busy, bustling nature. If ever that bustling becomes too busy for you, quiet respites in nature are all around. By and large, Keene really does offer something for everyone…including jobs.

Part of Keene’s allure is found in its economy and employment opportunities. Long established as a manufacturing city, Keene’s history includes the automobile business, along with the production of woolen blankets (wonder why?), hats, chairs, and shoes. Looking around Keene today shows that the city continues to diversify its production portfolio. Although no longer producing automobiles or shoes, Keene still embraces its manufacturing roots and extends them into new industries.

If a manufacturing job is your target, you’ve come to the right place. Consider this, Keene has evolved its manufacturing prowess to include high-tech industries, like the medical field, as well as the production of critical components like various machinery, ball bearings, and printing equipment, to name just a few.

Naturally, these manufacturers cannot move forward and continue to evolve without manpower. That’s where you come in, of course. If you’re eager to fill one of the open jobs in Keene, NH, all you need to do to get the ball rolling is get in touch with the team at TPI Staffing. With TPI Staffing, you’ve got access to opportunities you likely aren’t even aware exist. What’s more, the process itself couldn’t be simpler. See for yourself…

Cast Your Eye on Keene Opportunities

When it comes to working with TPI Staffing, the name of the game is transparency. The TPI team wants you to know about those jobs that are open to you as soon as they become available. To that end, TPI maintains an updated list of opportunities, listed by location. So, you really can take a minute or two and scroll through the list to figure out which perfect position in Keene is currently inviting applicants. As soon as you see something you like, let TPI know. All you have to do is call and set up a time to come in and have a conversation about what you’re looking for and why.

A helpful hint: before you even call TPI, see if you’re able to answer a few of the following questions beforehand. After all, while the TPI Staffing agents are job-filling pros, not a single one of them can read minds…as far as we know. Answer these questions yourself so that you’ll have no trouble articulating what you’re really looking for when you stop by TPI.

  • Why do I want this job? (Try to think beyond the simple answer of paycheck).
  • Am I qualified for this job? (No sense wasting anyone’s time if you’re not).
  • Do these hours suit my schedule? (No shape-shifting from night owl to early bird necessary).

Granted, you might have to make some concessions or sacrifices in defense of the job you really want. Maybe night owls can re-train their brains to wake with the early birds, for instance. But, applying shouldn’t feel like an uncomfortable stretch of what you’re willing or able to do. If the job clearly requires a certain amount of experience, which you don’t have, it might be wise to keep on scrolling and continue your search. Rest assured, the right job is out there for you. Don’t waste time or energy trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Keen on Conversation

At TPI Staffing, the team of agents is all about getting to know you and what you need to thrive as a professional in Keene. To that end, after you’ve submitted a short contact form, which simply details how best to reach you, expect an invitation to interview. No, not for the job you’re eyeing, but with your TPI agent. This is such a fantastic opportunity to really be yourself, and not the forced or somewhat fake version of yourself that everyone is inclined to present during an interview. No, this is your chance to introduce yourself as a working professional, and as a person.

A thoughtful conversation at TPI Staffing will help guide your search for jobs in Keene, NH, and might even bring to light some talents and skills you’ve overlooked or tend to downplay. Not only that, your interests will be evaluated as part of the job search. Your TPI Staffing agent doesn’t want to just find a job for you. Ultimately, he or she wants to find the exact right job for you, so that you’ll feel motivated to show up on the job site and outperform your colleagues.

As uncomfortable or not your style as the next suggestion might be, think it over carefully. Don’t hold back during this conversation about what concerns or – you can say it – scares you about finding a new job. All job applicants have misgivings when it comes to their next opportunity, especially if they’re already employed but envision a better career. Of course, those applicants who have been out of work for a while will also likely feel apprehensive about re-entering the workforce.

Try to bear in mind that everyone at TPI Staffing has been there before and knows how you feel, firsthand. Moreover, these agents are professionals who match the right applicant to the right opportunity each and every day. While they might not claim to have heard it all, they’ve sure seen enough to handle whatever challenge or misgiving you choose to share with them.

Although we all know this isn’t true, try to at least pretend that there really are no stupid questions, and feel confident to ask whatever comes to mind, regarding how to find a job in Keene, or what working in Keene is actually like.

Use this time to check in with yourself, too, and determine if your resume needs a refresh, or whether a practice round of mock-interview questions might put some pep in your step before your actual job interview. 

TPI Staffing is all about making sure you’re ready to spin as a vital cog in the Keene machine!
