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

  • Recruitment coaches help you think outside of your comfort zone.

    I was contacted by Joe about the job opportunity and at first I was against it. I was searching for something that was outside of my comfort zone and outside of the food industry. While talking with Joe he was so enthusiastic about the company that I said sure let’s give it a try. Joe was with me every single step of the way. From initial contact to me actually being hired he was there. He called/ texted me the day of my interview and encouraged me along the way. I was surprised and happy for his involvement to help me. I could always count on him for great advise and tips during the process. He shared my excitement each time I was contacted by the new company and followed my journey. He was always professional and was easily contacted when I had butterflies about me making the changes. I recommend Joe to any job seekers out there. He went above and beyond!

  • I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career.

    Sherri Balzer is an excellent job recruiter. I had been working with her for more than 3 months where I had multiple job interviews with different companies. She is always very detailed, caring, patient, and most of all very professional. I turned down multiple job offers because they were not a good fit for me and Sherri understood my reasons. Instead of losing hope in me she kept working hard looking for other companies that suited my skill set and knowledge. We found the perfect company and I got the best job offer available. I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career. Respectfully,

  • I would like to say that I am grateful for my experience working with Alicia Terrell and I  highly recommend her service. I asked for her help after she found a management position for my husband in the restaurant industry at a company that values their employees, and she has now done the same for me with another brand. I am moved by her passion, kindness, and tenacity in finding the right career choice for me. When I started working with her, she took the time to listen to what’s important to me in a brand, my experience, and my goals, and found a great fit. She helped make my transition out of my previous job smooth and went above and beyond to be available and answer my questions, giving me insight during that process as well. Because of her willingness to provide quality instead of just a quick fix, I feel like I have already found a home within the Chicken Salad Chick brand and I am excited for the growth and opportunity that lies ahead for me. I wouldn’t have been as prepared or sure of this being a step in the right direction without her knowledge and passion. Thank you! Alicia helps another person find a job!
