I think it is important as a job seeker to not be too narrow in your search. If you are not open minded in your job search you can potentially pigeonhole yourself and miss out on great opportunities. It is vital to consider every aspect of the job and not focus solely on pay rate and job title when choosing a position. I have found that the more open and positive job seekers are, the happier they are with their career choices ultimately.
Unemployed job seekers far too often underestimate the benefit of contract work due to a negative preconceived notion of what a "temp" is. Several times a day I speak with job seekers who quickly reference why they don't want to contract while completely overlooking how it can give them an edge over their competition. Contracting is an excellent way to keep a person's skills fresh and relevant, eliminates resume gaps, shows future employers they are hard-working and, above all, is a great way to get a job seeker's foot into a door that would have otherwise been closed to them. We have seen on more than one occasion a temporary worker go into a company for a short term assignment for a predetermined amount of time and once given that opportunity to show their skills the company realized what an asset they were and extended a full-time permanent offer. For every con a job seeker has regarding temping we have at least one pro, just ask us!
I love to travel and am an avid shopper.
I think the most rewarding part of the job is feeling confident that you made the correct match between a job seeker and a position. There are endless factors that interfere throughout the staffing process and it takes a lot of work to create an ideal match. The satisfaction that comes from finding a candidate that you've been working with a great job and making a client happy makes the grunt work it takes to get to that point worth it.

“It took me less than a week to get a job. Elizabeth was super-efficient and I am so happy that I got to know her. She is really good at her job. I had never met a recruiter as involved as she is.

"I have applied to many staffing agencies and worked for three besides WinterWyman. Most never get back to you or respond to your initial contact/meeting. My contact with Liz has been pretty consistent and whenever a position came up that she thought I might be interested in, she contacted me both via email and by calling. That is rare, based on my experience with other firms, most I have never heard from again, once interviewed. I look forward to my 9 months at my new company. I have already met many that I worked with there back before retiring from there in 2003 and renewed old acquaintances. I appreciate the opportunity to give kudos to Liz and others that I've been in touch with for problems logging in to put in my timecard, etc. Your team is solid from my point of view." - Nancy K.
