Better than Craigslist Better than indeed, or monster, or zip recruiter. These job boards are great if you’re the kind of person who feels like it’s necessary to have thousands of job postings rather than one great job. How can you know who the good companies are? The scammers and jerks…? As your personal agent, […]
I get this question often and I suppose it’s just a matter of understanding that you are not hired by Sqrft. We simply make the recommendation that you might be successful working with such and such a company. Each company then offers whatever benefits they have in place. Something that is sometimes overlooked is the […]
Our strategy meeting this morning was about what companies want in an employee. Nikkie, our newest team member jumped in, “Why is no one is asking what job seekers want?” So we talked about that for a minute and I have to say, the answer was not so obvious. As professional recruiters maybe we’ve lost […]
Truth #1: Don’t get sloppy with your job search. Don’t spam your resume. Rather, be meticulous. Read, invest time, thought and care into your search.

We have a hotel to wire in Olean and a hospital addition in Springville coming up in the very near future and could use some help. If you know what to do with MC cable, have time to jump on a project, and live in that neighborhood …then reach out to me.
I wasn’t going to bother writing because I figure—it’s the height of the season, unemployment is low, there are mountains of opportunity out there—you’re probably happily working and making lots of money! If for some crazy reason you or someone you know is not checking all of those boxes, I know of 192 pretty decent […]
10). You’ll never meet a good roofer who’s unemployed 9). Ask any banker—the most important thing on a building is its roof 8). You get to work outdoors, in the sunshine and fresh air 7). Few people get to see the world from a roofer’s perspective 6). Roofing on your resume earns respect from every other trade 5). […]
I have a list on my whiteboard of more than 150 quality companies who for whatever reason just can’t seem to find the right person. Putting you together with them is all about timing, or circumstance, or maybe I misunderstood what you were all about.
Over the last 21 years, I or my staff have interviewed a cumulative 45,000 job seekers. It’s easy but often dangerous to draw random anecdotal conclusions about things like industry wages and why simply from our experience. Ideally, we would be able to collect real verifiable data. So I built my first survey..which I’ve learned […]
