The JobGiraffe Process...
At JobGiraffe we believe it is very important for you to understand what to expect when you apply for our client’s positions. Let’s look more closely at the JobGiraffe process...
Facts About Working With JobGiraffe:
JobGiraffe's service are always FREE to the job seeker.
All fees are paid for by our clients in return for our sourcing, pre-screening, testing, reference checking and background checking services.
Not every job seeker will be selected for an interview by JobGiraffe.
JobGiraffe will review your resume based on the Candidate Profile associated with each job opening and select those candidates with the most relevant background first.
This process is highly selective, so please note, given both the high volume of resumes we receive daily and the wide variety of client positions that JobGiraffe actively recruits for at any given time, the resume you submit to any one of our Client's open positions will be reviewed ONLY in relation to that position.
If your resume is not selected for the position you applied to, do not be discouraged.
You can apply on a job-by-job basis to as many positions through JobGiraffe as you feel you are qualified for based on the Candidate Profile.
If you would like to increase your chances of being selected by JobGiraffe for a client position, we suggest that all resume submissions be done carefully and appropriately on a position-by-position basis based your skills, education, experience and characteristics in relation to each position's Candidate Profile.
If you do not fit the Candidate Profile, or come very close to it, you most likely will not be contacted.
If your resume is selected, JobGiraffe will require a screening.
In the event your resume is one of those selected, JobGiraffe will contact you and ask you to agree to a screening.
Screenings can be done in person within regular office hours, in person before or after regular office hours, by Skype or by phone especially if you are currently employed.
If the screening is successful, the next step is to meet the Client Company.
Once the screening is complete, and if you and your JobGiraffe consultant agree that the position is a good match for you, the Client Company will be contacted by JobGiraffe and an interview will be scheduled for you at a mutually agreeable time and place which JobGiraffe will coordinate.
Some testing or specific evaluations* may be required PRIOR to your interview with the Client Company.
Whether testing or other evaluations are needed by JobGiraffe or the client directly, you will be informed of exactly what's required position-by-position. Almost all of the testing and/or evaluations can be done online.
*Testing or specific evaluations may include but are not limited to: general skills, computer skills, specific software knowledge, personality evaluations and adaptability screening.
After you meet with our Client Company, there may be a 2nd interview or you may need to meet additional people.
JobGiraffe will coordinate all client meetings for you.
As the interview process continues, JobGiraffe will require additional information about you.
All candidates under consideration by the clients of JobGiraffe must submit an Education and Work History Profile and Authorization for Release of Information Form.
These forms can be completed securely and effortlessly online. JobGiraffe will then verify all education, certifications, degrees and military service. Additionally, your employment will be verified back to a maximum of 15 years.
And, for the purpose of JobGiraffe performing a third-party Criminal Background Check* when you receive a job offer from any of JobGiraffe's clients, you will also fill out a Criminal History Questionnaire and Background Check Release form. These forms can also be completed securely and effortlessly online.
*Background checks may include but are not limited to: criminal background, social security trace, DMV records, national wants and warrants and other federal databases. Our staff is well trained and able to help you through this process.
There is no guarantee that JobGiraffe will find you a job.
Even if JobGiraffe selects your resume and you pass the initial screening and meet with a client of JobGiraffe, it does not guarantee you will be hired by our client.
Because we feel honesty is the best policy, in the current market, approximately 1 in 5 of all initial introductions will result in the job seeker we've referred being hired by our Client Company.
If I am not hired, then what?
If you are not hired, your profile plus all of your testing, evaluations, investigative forms and other pertinent information will be kept in our database.
Then, if you apply again when you see a new position that suits your qualifications, we will recontact you, perform another screening in relation to the position, and your information will be retrieved and the process will start again and now it will be even easier as many steps will already be completed!
What does JobGiraffe guarantee?
JobGiraffe guarantees we will use our considerable experience, energy, and professional resources to connect you with clients who are looking for candidates with your type of education, skills, experience or characteristics.
And, if we feel that it is truly unlikely we will be able to place you within a reasonable amount of time with one of our current “for fee” client companies, we will tell you openly and honestly.
Many years of experience have taught us that the job market changes continually, so although we may not be able to place you today, that can easily change in the near future, so open and honest communication is always best.
