Scope Out the Selection

Think of this first step like window-shopping. You don’t need to commit to a purchase, but you do want to check out your options and see what’s actually on offer. Accessing the TPI website gives you the ability to peek at the open positions and jobs in Lebanon, NH in order to consider the pros and cons of each one. A little critical thinking goes a long way here. Evaluate the listing thoroughly and thoughtfully. Granted, everyone is unique, driven by a personal set of priorities. However, if you ask us, we would order the points to consider as follows:

Interest

Do you want this job? Ask yourself this question without considering compensation or benefits, schedule or start date. Is this job something that genuinely interests you? If it is, then carry on; if not, move on. There is absolutely no point pursuing a job simply because you need one. If, in six months time – or less – you’re going to quit, save yourself and everyone else involved the time and headache. TPI provides plenty of employment options. Review the list until you land on the one that speaks to how you want to spend your time.

Skillset

What does this job require? Is there a certain level of education required? A professional certificate or license? Are you qualified to do this job? Does it align with jobs you’ve held in the past? If so, consider your particular strengths and weaknesses with respect to that job and what you were responsible for on a daily basis. Hint: doing so will help you prepare for an interview, where you’ll undoubtedly be asked those easy, yet difficult questions, like “Why are you the right candidate for the job? Or, “What skills do you bring to the table?” Some hiring managers will even ask you to identify your perceived (or proven) weaknesses, along with your strengths.

Schedule and Logistics

Are you currently employed right now and simply looking for a change? If so, do you want a new opportunity but the same schedule? What works for you about your current schedule and what about it proves challenging? For some applicants, the traditional 9-5 is just the ticket. But, if you require more flexibility – let’s say your little ones are dismissed from school at 2:45, well, perhaps an earlier shift altogether works for you. Now, don’t dismiss a possible opportunity because you need flexibility. Most employers are willing to work with you and tweak your timecard to better support your work-life balance. If, for whatever reason, second shift suits your needs better, be clear about this so that when you partner with an agent at TPI, you’ll be able to help him or her evaluate opportunities accordingly. In addition to thinking about your long-term schedule, be honest about your start date. How soon are you realistically able to job into a new job with both feet?

Compensation

Sure, for those of us who were raised right, we’ve been taught not to discuss money, politics, or religion in mixed company. Great etiquette advice for a dinner party, but you’ll do well to think of your TPI agent as your confidante. Now, we assure you, your agent doesn’t want to know your deepest, darkest fears or secrets. But you can and should be real up front when it comes to how much cabbage you need to fund your life. Money can’t buy happiness, perhaps, but it does a great job keeping the lights on and the fridge stocked. Be realistic about what you need and what you’re willing to compromise on when it comes to your compensation. Remember, compensation doesn’t just mean cash. What about benefits? Are you – or were you – insured by your employer? If so, factor that into your desired compensation, or prepare to pay out of pocket if the position you want doesn’t offer insurance.

Ready, Set, Reach Out!

When you’re ready and set to secure your new job in Lebanon, NH, jump into action and get in touch with the TPI Staffing team. Make the call or come by whichever one of our four offices is most convenient to you. Since you’ve already done a good bit of legwork, you should expect to really get some good mileage out of your conversation with your TPI agent. Start by filling out and submitting a form that tells TPI how best to contact you and get ready to embark on the interview process with your agent.

This interview is unlike any you’ve been on before. If you’re like most of us, you’ve fibbed and fancied a few details on your resume, or maybe overstated your stellar attention to detail and unmatched organizational expertise. No need to inflate your experience or ego here. Give your TPI agent an honest self-evaluation of your professional background, and those areas where you absolutely kick ass, alongside those tasks that have kicked your ass in the past. This is your golden opportunity to be forthright without risking judgment or rejection. For instance, do you hit snooze more than Trump tweets? An early morning gig might not be for you. Do you get a kick out of interacting with customers and being out in the field every day? Well, a desk job in a cubicle will probably leave you feeling suffocated. Be honest about what you’re really looking for in your next opportunity, even if you aren’t sure you have what it takes…yet.
