Why should I not post my resume online?

Posting your resume online is usually either a black hole or a black stain on your reputation. Most companies don’t use online searches because they don’t have time to read 100 resumes to hopefully find you – the 1 qualified candidate in the stack. But, sometimes HR folks and managers do go online, so who’s to say your company won’t find out you are looking? Don’t risk it. Rather than be part of the resume stack – we can move you to the top and directly to the interview stage.

Why shouldn’t I apply for a job directly on company’s website?

You can, but your resume may not get in front of the decision maker, or your resume may not be selected because they use key words searches which may not be in your resume, or the hiring manage may tire of clicking “DELETE” before they get your resume. We have the connections that can get you to into the interview process FAST.

Why should I not apply to a job posted on the internet?

The truth is, many companies place ads and don’t get beyond the first few respondents, either because they get too busy or they get discouraged by poor applicants and it tarnishes it for everybody else. When you work with us, you are on the inside track. You will be presented as a finalist, as our clients know we will only submit well-qualified candidates to them.

What Candidates Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I am especially thankful for the support I received from Clarence Washington!

    He was very  instrumental and patient throughout the entire process. He was very supportive and provided me with some very  essential techniques that helped me in both updating my resume' and the interviewing process. Mr. Washington was professional at all times and continued to communicate with me until I was hired. I would highly recommend your services to everyone. I am looking forward to starting my new position as a GM next week. 
    Your service was indeed a great experience. With Gratitude,
    Thomas I am especially thankful for the support I received from Clarence Washington!
  • I highly endorse Mike Buterbaugh!

    He is a very easy person to speak to on the phone and wasted no time getting me ready and prepared to take on the current job market. He was very instrumental in getting my resume set up in the most current and trending manner so I was appealing to companies.  Beyond that, he was always just a phone call away if I had any questions and he gave me real life advice and insight for the people I would be interviewing with not just a LinkedIn profile, like I have gotten from others in the past. I have used quite a few different Recruiting companies in the past and I never felt more than just a means for them to get a commission check, until I got connected with Mike.  He really believes in long term connections and I believe as my role develops with my new company that I can reach out to him for help in the future in getting more outstanding people to bring on board. Thanks Lee   I highly endorse Mike Buterbaugh!
  • I would like to say thank you for this great opportunity and helping me with the next mile stone on my career path.

    At first when I received the email I was uncertain that this would work. Upon talking to Michelle I discovered that not only was she really nice, but also quite resourceful. I started the process on a Tuesday and literally one week later I was offered a job on the spot, thanks to all of her assistance. We talked and I was able to be open with her.  She was able to put me in the mindset of my now area manager to go over what to say and do, and what to leave out during the interview. We went over resumes and she showed me how to improve mine so that I stood out. Overall if I ever had to do this again I would gladly work with Michelle but I’m secure in my career path.  Thanks again to Patrice and Associates, and Michelle! Keyona Ellis
  • Michelle was outstanding!

    I want to thank you guys for all your help with me finding my new career.  My career coach, Michelle, was outstanding and she really assisted me every step of the way with great advice and tips for the future.  I will definitely be referring you guys to any other manager or soon to be manager looking for a career in another field. And I will be sure to keep in contact with you guys if I need help again in the future.   Thanks again! Silas Squalls Michelle was outstanding!
  • Without Tom, I would not have heard of this amazing opportunity!!

    In early November of 2019 I began a preliminary search for new employment. As I was currently employed I’d say I was less than aggressive in this search . After a few short weeks of my resume being posted on INDEED I received an email from Mr. Tom Schmitt representing Patrice & Associates . After a great “ get to know you conversation “ Tom informed and educated me on an exciting opportunity coming soon to my area. After a second interview style phone conversation Tom put me in contact with a District Manger representing this opportunity. Shortly there after I had an offer letter which far exceeded the compensation and overall benefits package that my current employer was offering . Without Tom who was extremely professional and seemed truly interested in my situation, I fear I would have never heard of this great opportunity let alone got a foot in the door . Thank You Tom and Patrice & Associates . Warmest Regards, Dan Without Tom, I would not have heard of this amazing opportunity!!
