Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Speaking of poultry, have you ever considered farming as a future calling? If you’re one of those people who can’t stand the thought of being trapped in a cubicle, working on an assembly line, or keeping up with the same tasks day after day – maybe a change of scene is just what you need. Sure, farm work has its patterns and repetitions, but when you’re working with animals in the great outdoors, you can be sure that no two days will look the same.

Check out one of the TPI Staffing featured jobs in Keene, NH: farm associate. Are you thinking that although a change sounds ideal, you’ve never actually been on a farm and have zero experience with the industry? Not to worry. Even if that’s the case, the team at TPI Staffing will set you up for success. For example, this particular position includes participation in the Farm Caretaker Training Program, which instructs on the proper procedure for poultry handling.

After you’ve successfully completed your training, you will ultimately be in charge of a specific location on the farm site and tasked with its maintenance, along with the care of the birds on site. For those of you who have ever dreamed of operating farm machinery, this job will make those ambitions a reality. Once again, you’ll be trained first in order to ensure compliance with safety policies and procedures.

Neither Fish Nor Fowl?

Borrowing one of my grandmother’s expressions here, “neither fish nor fowl,” which simply means, “neither this nor that,” but perhaps something in between. If working with poultry doesn’t appeal to you, there are plenty of other postings at TPI Staffing, which you can review online at your convenience.

One of the perks of partnering with the TPI team is transparency. As a job seeker, you can always review the jobs in Keene, NH, by accessing TPI’s website.

Take your time and scroll through the opportunities in the area until you find one that matches up with your interests, background, education – or better yet, all three. But don’t sell yourself short. If you see a job that interests you, especially if it’s the first opportunity you’ve been excited about in a long while, contact the team and learn more. Don’t close the door on a new adventure before you’ve even approached the threshold. Like the farm associate position described above, most of the jobs in Keene, NH come with on-the-job training.

Leave the Nest

This is the time to get out of your comfort zone. Whether that’s a job you no longer love but know how to do, or an unemployment status that has cemented itself as near-certainty, following botched interviews or missed opportunities, now is the moment to go out on a limb and take flight.

For the best approach, connect with the TPI Staffing team and enjoy the reassurance and confidence that only a professional co-pilot can provide. Give the office in Keene a call and speak with one of the available agents. At this point, all you need to do is fill out a quick contact form, so that the team at TPI can easily reach you when the right job becomes available.

Spread Those Wings

As soon as you partner with TPI, you’ll be required to complete an interview with your agent. Although the word interview inspires dread and doubt in many of us, this interview presents a unique opportunity to represent YOU in a very honest way. Most of us have overinflated our abilities or even our interest in a job during a traditional interview. But in this case, the more honest you can be with yourself – and your agent, the better.

If you don’t like commuting, for example, then a job too far afield of your home won’t serve you well, not to mention the employer, or the TPI Staffing team. Just because you want to be an early bird, doesn’t mean you are. Rock your night owl tendencies and search out the third shift. No matter what your personal preferences are when it comes to your professional ambitions, take an accurate approach to this conversation with your TPI Staffing agent.

Following your conversation, your TPI Staffing agent will get to work tracking down the opportunities that best align with you as a person and as a professional. While he or she is scouting the territory, use the time to prepare for an actual job interview. Check your professional documents, like your resume and CV. If you don’t have those, call TPI and set up some time to organize those materials so that you’re ready to share them with a hiring manager when you are called to interview.

Are you one of those candidates who gets flustered talking about yourself in front of strangers? Do you get tongue-tied when asked about your professional background and experience? If so, take a breath – you’re not alone. Take advantage of the resources at TPI and schedule some time to practice your interview skills in order to approach the process with more confidence and poise.

Make sure your personal presentation is professional enough, too. This is all about making a lasting, and likable first impression. Stained clothes, unkempt hair, or otherwise sloppy appearance sends the wrong message about you as a candidate. Clean up your act and get ready to launch into a brighter horizon.

With so many jobs in Keene, NH available for your consideration via the help of TPI Staffing, don’t think twice about starting the process. If Keene falls slightly outside of your ideal job-hunting range, partner with one of the other three TPI Staffing offices, located in Claremont, NH; Lebanon, NH; and Brattleboro, VT. If a job in the Upper Valley is your ultimate goal, any of the TPI Staffing locations can help you achieve it.

Go online, scope out the job scene nearest you, and then give TPI Staffing a call. Get “inspired to be hired,” and set off into the wild, blue yonder…
