What Employers and Candidates Say

About Staffing is AWESOME. They are undoubtedly the best in what they do! They work around the clock and put so much effort into helping you find the right career based on your skillset. They take the time to analyze your situation and skills. No doubt they work hard at it and they are quick! Elizabeth Hoffmann is incredibly pleasant to deal with, she is always positive in all aspects and she is definitely passionate about what she does and that’s why she is so amazing at it. Christina Schultz is extremely responsive every time I needed to reach out to someone even for a simple question, she is delightful to deal with. They have been professional, responsive, and accurate. I will recommend this agency to everyone I know moving forward, they are awesome.

Nadah - Candidate

I highly recommend About Staffing. I was a candidate looking for employment and each interaction with the About Staffing team has been positive, personable, and professional. You can tell that they love what they do and they are great at listening to the needs of their candidates. I’ve worked with Cristina and Elizabeth, and I am happy to say that they are some of the best I’ve worked with in terms of recruiters. I highly recommend going to About Staffing if you are looking for work!

Christina - Candidate

Our experience with About Staffing was nothing short of amazing. Their team was simply delightful to work with at all stages of the process. We truly appreciated and were in awe at their ability to shortlist and summarize the top candidates for the position that we needed filled. We will never try and fill a position again without assistance from About Staffing. Thank you for making a difficult task enjoyable and simple.

What We Say—Media Experts on Employment Issues and Trends

How Long Should A Resume Be?

If you’ve ever applied for a job you know how important it is to have a great resume. A resume is meant to showcase who you are, your qualifications for the job, and your accomplishments in previous positions. The catch? It’s supposed to do this in 1-2 pages. The general rule of resume length is that it should never be more than 1-2 pages.

Everything You Need To Know About Staffing Agencies

One of the most important elements of a company’s success is hiring the right people for the job.

It also happens to be one of the most difficult and expensive tasks companies must complete.

If done wrong, a bad hire can cost more than just the surface-level costs associated with recruitment.

Showing Diversity When Discussing Biases

Understanding Your Biases

“I’m not biased.” Yes, you are. Everyone is. That is human. Let me share some of my biases. I’m biased against Oilers fans, people who don’t like seafood, and drivers with bumper stickers.
