We're here to help you succeed and offer any help on how you can get your offers accepted!
When your offer is submitted, you can imagine the office may get multiple candidates that apply to the exact same shift, so making yourself stand out is important:)
The office has the opportunity to review not only a candidates' star rating, they also look at the resume, work experience and type, the hourly rate offer, etc before deciding who will be the best fit for their patients and the office for that shift.
Sometimes these offices may get offers from members that have already completed a shift there and they usually will go ahead and select them because they already know what that person will be like- especially if they had a great experience with them the first time:)
So, some helpful tips we give our members include:
- A great way to be the first one to send in an offer is to make sure your notifications are turned ON for TempStars. Offices don’t want to spend a lot of time waiting for offers and wondering if they are going to be able to fill that day.
If you have your notifications turned on and can send in offers quickly, offices notice that and pay attention to your offer.
2. If you are a new grad, you might consider lowering the hourly rate that you are asking for.
You don’t want to seem money-driven as that is a turnoff for offices. If you can weigh your experience with the details of the shift, and provide an offer that is acceptable and fair, offices appreciate that.
3. Lastly, spruce up your resume! You want to make sure the actual content is there and show your
qualifications, but make sure the formatting and style aren’t on the plain side.
Remember, offices often get multiple offers for a shift, and one of the main ways they differentiate between offers is the resume. They do look at content, to be sure, but they also look at the style.
A resume that has a really nice style is perceived to reflect on the professionalism and attention to detail of the applicant.
So it would really be worth it to stylize your resume, add some colour, etc. to stand out and highlight your qualifications.
Here is a TempStars Resume Web Page to explain things a bit further, and there’s a link to a good example of a resume at the bottom of the page.
I hope this helps and good luck with your offers!
