CompleteMarkets
The purpose of this blog is to help guide those who struggle to find employment in the Insurance and Financial Services industry. Every week I will post blogs to help job seekers through the hiring process. The blog posts will focus on; resume building, what words you should and shouldn't use on resumes, staying active in the job search, how to be successful on CompleteMarkets and get in front of recruiters and employers, providing relevant information regarding employment etc. It is my goal to take you from being a job seeker to an employed insurance professional.
Frequently Asked Questions
I wanted to share with you questions that candidates ask me every day. I feel that these are important to share because if you are a candidate who has asked this same question, you might miss out on a really great opportunity if you have unanswered questions. Here are some examples of questions candidates ask:

I uploaded my resume, now what do I do?

After you upload your resume you are directed to our Find It page. This is where you will see a list of different job categories in the insurance and financial services industry and you will see how many jobs we have matched for you within a 50 mile radius of your zip code. We do this to get you started, it is then up to you to use our filters to narrow down and customize your job search.

I have applied to jobs and haven’t heard back, why?

Employers and recruiters are very busy. A lot of them are shorthanded of staff and wear many different hats in their job and therefore they don’t have a lot of time. It’s not that they are ignoring your resume; it’s that they just haven’t had the time to review it yet. Remember, they have a lot on their plate, so a simple 5 minute phone call to them might not be a bad idea. Follow up, introduce yourself and let them know you are interested in their job. I also follow up with employers when candidates apply.

I looked at your jobs and I don’t see any new ones in my area, can you let me know when you have new jobs?

To make it easy and time saving for you, we created a way for you to receive notifications for new jobs posted. In order to receive these notifications, you will need to be a follower of the company you have interest in. When they post a new job, anyone who is following that company will receive a notification that a new job for that company was published.

These are some of the most commonly asked questions that I talk about with candidates on a daily basis. Here at CompleteMarkets, we not only want our recruiters and employers to have an amazing experience with us, but we want our candidates to have one too.

Please feel free to reach out to me and ask me any questions you may have. It is my goal to see candidates fully maximize from the benefits of being on CompleteMarkets!
