Unemployment Coming to an End? A Staffing Agency Can Help | Finding a Job During COVID-19

The recent pandemic has left millions out of work and the unemployment rate has skyrocketed as a result. While there were additional funds granted to help aid the surge in unemployment, those funds are starting to dwindle. With unemployment coming to an end, people everywhere are starting to get back to work, but they’re having to find new jobs due to business closures and cut-backs. Fortunately, a great Reno staffing agency, such as The Applied Companies, can help. We’ll make finding a job during COVID-19 the least of your worries. 

See how we can help you land the job you want by offering help with resume writing, interviews, skills testing, and more.

Resume Writing

Landing the perfect job takes a bit of preparation. Your resume presents potential employers with their first impression of you, so it’s crucial that it adequately reflects your skills and knowledge related to the position you’re applying for. Some resumes lack the information hiring executives are looking for, which means they’ll likely move on to the next candidate rather than give you a chance in an interview. Resumes should be kept short and concise to show the employer why you would be an asset to their company.

We’ll help job seekers write their resume to be tailored to the job position they’re applying for. By helping candidates highlight the assets and skills they have that are relevant to the position available, they have a greater chance of being considered for employment.

Interviewing

Interviewing is another critical step in the hiring process that needs to be mastered to get the job. This is where the employer gets a better understanding of who you are and what you can or cannot do for the company. It’s important to display your understanding of the industry and to present your most professional self to the interviewer. 

The Applied Companies can help job seekers develop the confidence they need to navigate their way through the interview process. From learning how to act professionally to developing key communication skills, you’ll learn how to impress future employers and hopefully sell yourself as the best candidate for the job. 

Skills Testing 

Industry testing is one of the most beneficial services we provide job seekers as it helps determine a candidate’s skills. This will help the staffing agent identify your specific abilities and lead you to the job best suited for you. We can also give you suggestions and provide feedback for the areas that need improvement.  

Benefits 

Working with The Applied Companies to find a job during COVID-19 has many advantages, including the benefits that are available to some employees. TAC works with companies that provide benefits such as healthcare and retirement to employees. With the current pandemic and limited job opportunities, this is major for any job seeker.

Good News About Health Insurance!

If you have between 10 and 200 employees and you offer an employer sponsored health plan for your employees, you probably “early renewed” in the fall of last year.  This “early renewal” was an opportunity for you to delay the inevitable, significant “small group” health insurance premium increases resultant from a provision in Obamacare called “adjusted community rating”.  Well, the “crows have now come home to roost”, as we are hearing small group premium increases range from a seemingly benign 38% to a whopping 147%….yes, folks, 147% !!!

Did you know a PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is the ONLY legal way to aggregate risk for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act?  Did you know Applied Business Solutions, our PEO, has also received our renewal notice?  Good news for you, our health insurance premiums over the past 24 months have risen…are you ready for this…only 2%…yes, that is correct, two percent, in 24 months.  How much has your health insurance gone up in the past two years?

Our program is working wonders for our clients in managing their healthcare costs.  As a bonus to our clients, we also handle their payroll, workers compensation insurance and human resources, so that they can focus on their “core” business.

Most health insurance brokers don’t even realize that our option exists.  Simply put, IF YOU HAVE BETWEEN 10 AND 200 EMPLOYEES, AND YOU OFFER HEALTH INSURANCE TO YOUR EMPLOYEES, YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF and TO YOUR EMPLOYEES TO LEARN ABOUT OUR PROGRAM.

Please e-mail me at jim.annis@theappliedcompanies-staging.cgenbev4-liquidwebsites.com or Tom Miller at tom.miller@theappliedcompanies-staging.cgenbev4-liquidwebsites.com to set up a totally “low key” informational meeting.  We will show you how a locally owned Professional Employer Organization can help your company GROW faster, reduce your LIABILITY, lessen TURNOVER, and allow you to make more MONEY!
