Happy Mother's Day to Working Moms!

Friday, May 11, 2018  by Bailey

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

According to the Department of Labor, 

  • Seventy percent of mothers with children under 18 participate in the labor force, with over 75 percent employed full-time.
  • Mothers are the primary or sole earners for 40 percent of households with children under 18 today, compared with 11 percent in 1960.

 Mothers who work 30 or more hours a week are faced with great challenges to manage a balance between good productivity and flow in their work and serving the needs of a family that is in a constant fluid motion. Working Moms also carry feelings of guilt for not being able to put forth 100% of attention to either thing at one time. Good news comes in the Harvard Business Review article linked below which outlines that kids benefit greatly from being raised by working moms and that it will aid in their ability to become functioning and productive assets to the workforce when their time comes.

At B&B, over half of our current employees are working moms. We understand that balancing act quite well and "walking the walk" allows our recruiters to use that insight when placing our working mom candidates into the next step of their career!

Cover Letters for Email Applications

Monday, March 19, 2018  by Bailey

 

Gone are the days of the standardized printed cover letter attached to the resume. With the onset of internet job boards and social media applications, how do you utilize your letter of introduction to engage the hiring authority? Here are some tips:

1) Do have an eye-catching subject line by headlining your #1 career achievement but be sure it correlates to the job specifics.

2) The cover is an introduction to your qualifications but not a regurgitation of your resume. Sell your abilities and merits.

3) Thoroughly understand the job and company and speak to those points. Understand the void they are looking to fill and bullet point your track record as their solution.

4) Keep it short. Recruiters and Hiring Authorities are receiving hundreds of resumes so the cover needs to be read at a glance while prompting them to click the resume to read more.

5) Proof it. Spelling errors and poor grammer will immediately get you dismissed. Attention to detail is the first thing that is qualified.
