What is your process for starting a search?

You will receive a follow-up response to your resume shortly after your submittal. Your first contact with PMA will be with one of our staffing specialists. We will first speak with you on the phone to understand your background and what you are looking to accomplish. We will then go over available positions that meet your requirements and background and with your permission, submit your resume to our Client(s) for their consideration. Concurrently, your professional references will be contacted to more fully understand your background and skills. As soon as we have feedback on a particular position or as soon as we have new positions, we will contact you.

Will you negotiate my salary and benefits with my prospective employer?

Yes, we would be glad to make sure that all requirements are met to the best of everyone’s availability. It is very important that you share upcoming vacations, raises and any other factors that would be critical to this process. Also, keep us updated on any upcoming offers or interview dates so we can streamline this process as much as possible.

How do you gain access to jobs I can’t?

Many of the companies we work with don’t advertise their positions because of the time and expense associated with performing their own candidate search. Instead they open these jobs to PMA, knowing that we will send them only qualified Candidates for their openings. Due to our long-term relationships with our Clients, we have firsthand knowledge of many new openings.

How long will it take for me to find the right job?

The length of the process depends on timing, your skills, your objectives, flexibility and our Client’s availability. If your skills are in current demand in the marketplace, the overall process can take between 2 days and several weeks, depending on the circumstances.

What kind of salary can I expect to receive?

As you might imagine, there is no simple answer to this question. Market value is largely determined by area of the country, years of experience, depth of experience, educational history and often company/industry.

I am looking to change careers, can you help me?

It depends on your background, education and flexibility. If you have an applicable degree and relevant industry experience, coupled with at least 2 years experience in a related field, we may be able to help you. You must be flexible on salary requirements when changing careers, but you can recover quickly once you learn new skills.
