Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How can Construction Recruiters help me find a new job?
A: Looking for a new job doesn’t have to be torture. Get pro-active and connect with a recruiter who understands your personal motivations and career goals. We recommend connecting with someone you actually want to talk to, and whose opinion you value, long before you need to make a move. Don’t let desperate times force you to work with a recruiter you don’t like or trust.
Q: What’s the best way to get started on finding a new job?
A: Be clear on what you are looking for in your next position. Research companies you like, check out their online presence, see if they have any Glassdoor reviews, etc. Be a JOB SHOPPER. Also, it’s EXTREMELY important that your digital footprint reflects you in a positive light. Remove any questionable “party pics” or “funny memes” that a potential employer could easily find if they google your name.

Top 10 Reasons Candidates Should Have Their Own Recruiter
Q: What do I need to have?
A: You will need to have a current resume, detailed project list, and some professional references. We also recommend that every candidate has a current LinkedIn profile with a professional picture, accurate job history and recommendations from clients, colleagues, and vendors where possible.
We truly believe the right recruiter relationship can support your long-term career goals. These are the three areas we focus on when working with our candidates:
- Immediate Value: How will you hit the ground running and provide value to a potential employer? Does this position support your long term goals? We drill down to the skills, expertise, and motivation that make you a desirable candidate and we match this with companies and roles that are the right fit.
- Personal Goals: What are you looking for in your next role? Is it more money, better benefits, more training & development, challenging work, commute time, additional responsibility, technology, and innovation?
- Fit & Culture: In what environment do you excel? A big or small firm, lots or little responsibility, drinks on Friday or philanthropic focus, tech focused or old school builder?
We all need to work, but why did you pick the job you have now? During the recruiting process will learn why you do what you do. The more we know about what makes you tick, the easier it is to present you with the right opportunity.
Our ultimate goal is to help our candidates find a place where they can do good work and be fulfilled personally and professionally.
Q: I applied to an open position. What happens next?
A: Your application will be submitted to the lead recruiter managing the job associated with your application. They’ll review your application and assess if your background is a fit for our client’s specific job requirements. Or, if there’s a better fit elsewhere. If there’s a good connection, they’ll be in touch.
Q: Why haven’t I heard back from anyone at your company?
- The sheer volume of applications we get to our open jobs
- The client may have changed the initial job specifications
- Your background is simply not a fit for this position
- The client may have canceled the search
However, once you have applied for a position, you’re now in our network, and we’ll alert you to new, relevant positions as they arise.
