Looking for a welding job but not sure where to begin? The best thing you can do is pay a visit to Opti Staffing. There are a number of reasons why this is a good move.
First, Opti knows where the jobs are. We have a network of employers that our recruiters work with. We know who is hiring and what they are looking for. We know about jobs that may not even have been advertised.
Second, we know how to get people hired. Our recruiters work with hiring managers, and so the recruiters know what it takes to get the job. They will work with you every step of the way during your job search, guiding you and helping you so that you are well prepared for the interview and make the best impression.
Visiting the Opti Staffing Office
When you come to our office, you should bring two forms of identification with you. These can include a driver’s license or government ID card, social security card, birth certificate, passport, permanent residence card or alien registration receipt card, foreign passport with a temporary I-551 stamp, or an employment authorization document with a photograph.
While at the office, you will also fill out an application form and other documents. Then you will get together with one of our ace recruiters to discuss your background, career goals, and what kind of job you are looking for. He or she will also talk to you about your salary, benefits, and commute preferences, and he will delve more deeply into your background to discuss your accomplishments. We want to find the best match for you, to make sure you get a job you enjoy, and to make sure you fit well with the company.
How to Get the Job
Certainly, experience and training are important in getting hired. But to ensure you get the job you want at the salary you want, you need to impress the hiring manager. The best way to do that is by emphasizing not just experience, but accomplishment.
It’s true that welders are in demand, but many companies are turning away applicants because they are not skilled enough in modern welding technologies. So, you need to be able to talk about the kinds of welding projects you have done to demonstrate your knowledge and skill, to go beyond just experience. And the more specific and detailed you can be, the more facts and information you can give, the better your answers will be.
