Missed call from potential employer?

What to do if you missed a call from an employer.

Missed a call from an employerQ: Crystal
I just had a pre-employment assessment test on Monday, and late in the afternoon yesterday, someone from the company called me and I missed it. By the time I realized, it was too late in the evening. I called again this morning and left a message because they were busy/out of the office. If they don’t call me back, when is it appropriate to give them a call again? Later in the afternoon today, or tomorrow morning perhaps? What happens if they are not in the office later, should I leave a message again or not? I don’t want to pester them too much…
Thanks!

Ans:
Did the person leave their name? If so,  call through the company switchboard, employees tend to take calls that are transferred internally

Things to remember:
There may be a company operator. If that person asks the nature of your call, say you are returning an urgent call from X regarding your employment status.

Once you get the person on the phone and have said Hello X add:  Sorry I missed your call yesterday, I am very interested in the job so I am very pleased I am able to reach you.

On your next call please say (slowly) your email address if you have one, thus giving them another option to reach you.

Lastly go to the company’s Contact Us page on their web site, sent the person an email, state in the email,  that the email is for X manager. Tech support will forward it and they will read an email tech support.

A good rule of thumb is call around 4:20 – 5:00PM many managers are likely at their desk tiding up for end of day

Thanks
Continued success in you job search…

Cover Letter writing a how to:

Fpsjobsindiana

 

One of the more important things in cover letter writing is the look/presentation of the letter itself.

Even if your cover letter is well written, it can become miss-aligned when emailed or by the job board if it it over formatted or too long.

Here are some guidelines to help your cover letter look good and be full of job related info!

Length of cover letter:
No less than ten lines. A cover letter is similar to the back cover or maybe the preface to a book, it informs the read as to what they can expect in the book and should leave enough mystery to interest the reader to go on to the resume …

Your intro paragraph:
Four of the ten lines should be your intro, take your lead from the job description itself especially the responsibility description.

The middle skills section:
The skills section should include two to four bullets, use dashes sometimes round or square bullets are converted to strange items by some resume inhalers.
Info for the bullets should come from the skills section of the job description choose four of the skills you have that are similar to the skills you have

Use the last three lines to close – reiterate your interest in the job, state that you are available to speak with the Human resources person at a particular time, please include telephone and email again.

Don’t forget to use paragraphs.

Your question suggests great energy and a real interest in obtaining the job, so here’s wishing you the very best as you pursue this job opportunity.
