NEW FEES AND SERVICES Effective November 8, 2011
JOB SEEKER BASIC PLAN – $29.99
You receive all of the above and the following for a period of thirty (30) days
As many of you are already aware, 80% of all companies and corporations require that you complete job applications and upload your resume to their career site. If you attended one of our meetings, you learned how this system work and that you cannot use a cookie cutter resume for each application. One size does not fit all when it comes to seeking employment online.
When applying for a position, your resume MUST be relevant to the position that you are applying for even it is within the same company. With that said, our team of experts, Karen, Kesha and LaTonya are present every Tuesday and Thursday, not only to review your resume and assist you with revising your resume, they also teach you how to make the adjustments as needed and give you the tools to customize your resume for each position that you apply for. You will learn what verbiage to use, the most effective format if you have been out of work for a long period of time or if you want to convey to the employer that you have transferrable skills. This is a one hour session.
- APPLICATION FOR IMMEDIATE POSITIONS
You also receive a link to one of the hiring companies that we partner with along with our permission to use us as a referrencel WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE EMPLOYMENT LINK PROCESS. Typically, you will hear from that employer within 24 – 72 hours of application.
JOB SEEKER PLUS PLAN – $49.99
You receive all of the above and the following for a period of sixty (60) days
- Resume Editing
This plan includes all of the above plus a final resume edit by our resume team which means that once you have applied the adjustments that you learned in the resume session, you can send it back to have a professional review and edit to ensure that the language, grammar, format and punctuation are correct. And your resume is ready.
2. Interview Arrangement and Set up
This allows you to receive invitations to attend on-site interviews or be referred directly to the management, HR or talent agents or others involved in the hiring process at our partner companies. You finally get your chance to sit down in front of a “human being” and sell yourself. Tell them why you would like to work for Comcast, Asset Acceptance, Recovery Construction or Class Act Tutoring. This is based on your qualifications for the position and you must participate in pre-screening activities prior to an interview. We do not allow you to do this alone or blindly.
3. Coaching for Interviews and Preparing for Assessments
There are over 200 different questions that you can be asked in an interview. What are they looking for when they ask those questions? What are the type of answers you need to avoid giving? What are the type of things you should or should not do when interviewing with these companies? Our employers share with us what they are looking for from punctuality, to passing drug tests, to ability to close a deal or be a true problem solver. Just like the resume, there is no “one size fits all” approach to interviewing. But when you understand what the employer is seeking for then you know how to convey those things to them in the interview. This is why we conduct screenings. It is not to tell you what to say just to get past an interview. It is to determine if you have the qualities and qualifications that the employer seek and if so to make sure you are able to communicate that in an interview session.
JOB SEEKER PREMIER PLAN – $89.99
You receive all of the above and the following for a period of ninety (90) days
With every company comes an assessment. Often it comes before the final and the main interview. We have team members who understand every type of assessment that is available; the purpose of these types of assessments and what they are seeking to achieve. We even have tutoring available for those who wish to build upon their math and reading comprehensive skills to help them in areas they may be difficult for them. We also have an assessment coach who will help those who suffer from test anxiety. Just ask if you need this service.
2. Specialty Training
Many of the jobs we have access to are in the area of Sales, Technical Support, Customer Service, Technology/Computer. We offer special training sessions for clients at this level who wish to sharpen their skills or learn new skills. These trainings gives us the opportunity ensure our employers that the job seeker is qualified and understand the nature of the job. Our clients can participate in this training even after receiving employment if they wish to continue to improve upon their professional skills.
Often we are asked why do you charge fees for the services that you provide to job seekers? While the answer should be simple, the Kimberly Group, LLC, is a company providing services and like any other company, we hire employees also carry out these tasks. Just like the job seeker expects to receive compensation for the service they will provide to their soon to be employers, employees of the Kimberly Group must also receive compensation.
But beyond that simple fact, there are no other companies out there that provide a service to both the job seeker and the employer where they put as much time, effort and resource into removing obstacles and barriers that stand in the way of the job seeker and employer coming together qualified, prepared and ready to work. Thousands of qualified people disqualify themselves from the job market because what they do not know IS hurting them.
Their resumes do not properly reflect their experience or qualification. Or the language of their resume is not recognized by the scanners that eliminate resumes that are not worded in such a way where there is relevancy to the job post they are applying for. Thus they receive rejection emails thanking them for applying but at this time…. Job seekers do not realize they are dealing with automation and technology and not people. Their resumes were read by a machine called an OCR and the computer generated the rejection letter not a human being.
- We get your resumes in their hands.
- We get you face to face with the employer (based on qualifications)
- We get to know you so that we can help you reflect your qualification and expertise both verbally and in writing.
- We invest in you, the job seeker!
- We invest in the employer by saving them time, money and energy in recruitment and screening of qualified candidates. If a person doesn’t see the value in what we do, then they are not likely to see the value in themselves to know that they are worth investing $29.99 or $49.99 or $79.99 to change their lives and get back to work.
