Discussion 43: Changes for You!

Job Club Heart of Texas | 26 comments

Our role at the Heart of Texas Workforce Center has changed.

You will still be able to receive services at the Workforce Center from the Center Staff.

Now, for the service that CampusJobXpress provides you. Our services will continue as usual and in fact, our services have been enhanced. We have added a Quality Assured Applicant Section that will change how you present yourself to employers.

With this new section, you will present your resume, but have you noticed that everyone puts out a resume today and you look just like everyone else. So, we added a photo and a summary of your qualifications next to it. Employers can more easily see and screen applicants. The best applicants with a combination of a great resume and a self-video presentation (one minute or less) will stand out.

We have had meetings with employers over the last few weeks and they want to see more. They want something that tells them you are the better candidate. We suggested the video presentation and the thought was that anyone can do your resume, but only you can present your video. You presenting yourself is the difference. This will not be for everyone, however. For those of you who can do this, it will present you in a very different light. If you would like to try this, let us know by email at info@campusjobxpress.com.

At CampusJobXpress, we are all trying to open as many doors for you as possible. We will be reviewing your profile on the site, looking at your resume and picture for ways to help you. You will also be getting email and messages about more jobs that are about to come our way. We now cover an area from Waco to the San Antonio Area. Things have begun to happen very fast.

For those of you who wish to be considered as a Quality Assured Applicant (an applicant who Campusjobxpress can refer as one of our best to employers), please let us know. Now, what is a Quality Assured Applicant? This is an applicant who has been assessed by us, has a good work history, a professional looking resume, has completed a video presentation of themselves and has interviewed with one of our team.

Many of you have already met the qualifications and will not have to do any more than create a short video. That’s it!

Please do not hesitate to continue contacting us through email, through Job Club or even through the Workforce Center. Stay connected!!!

    Thank you for the “update”, and THANK YOUR entire staff for all your help. Alot goes into your job fairs, and work behind the scenes. Do you think the “Quality Assured Status” may have a better access to certain jobs, that may not even be known at Workforce, or WIT webstite? Would the “video” portion be more selective or general; Such as, would we make a specific video for a specific employer, or just a general video. Would we know who has seen the video? And would it be possible to update or change video. Do you have a sample video so we could see one in action.??

    Thank you for the information. I really am not sure about a video presentation; however, I am kind of a one on one type of person…more like “in person.” Thanks, I will consider this in the future.

    Congratulations on expanding and offering new services. I would not mind being interviewed or uploading a picture, but I am not sure about the video. Good luck with everything!

    Hello,

    We are glad that you are still with us, and we enjoy seeing your post every Wednesday! We are going to be doing some site construction over the next few weeks, and some times there will be parts of the page that are down. Rest assured all of these things will be handled as quickly as possible, and Job Club will continue every wednesday. We thank you for your patience in advance!

    I appreciate all the information but I think I like a one on one interview and not a video.

    Thank you all for what you do and expanding services and information. We all non-jobbers really appreciate your helping us! A video sounds like an interesting idea but I don’t know if I can get out of my comfort zone long enough to not be a dork on a video!!!! I will work on my composure and self confidence and then consider that as a option…. Thanks!

    What happened to my post on this week?! I commented last Wednesday and now it is gone! I even had comments in my inbox regarding it because I forgot to set it to “replies to my comments.” Can someone please look into this? Thank you. I appreciate all you have done and will continue to do for us in the future.

    Thanks for the info. As for myself, a picture would be OK but I don’t really like the idea of a video.
