Flexicrew makes your recruiting a Slam Dunk!

Yes…March Madness has arrived with excitement and upsets.



POP QUIZ: How does March Madness Parallel Flexicrew’s mission?Basketball Cleanup Desk Set


We started kicking around that March Madness – filling out brackets and picking winners – parallels what we do at Flexicrew to build your workforce every day.


For March Madness, fans look at a wide number of teams, review their records and decide among them which they will advance in their brackets to the Sweet Sixteen. Likewise, Flexicrew reviews the resumes of possible candidates, screens them against several criteria, and decides which candidates should move forward in the recruiting process.


Finally, the March Madness Championship Game takes place where the two best teams play each other head-to-head and one of them wins.  Similarly, Flexicrew often compares two finalists in detail against each other and recommends to you our favorite candidate that we believe should get offered the job.


Like a perceptive team coach, Flexicrew recruiters search for and recruit good talent just the way a team needs to fill out various positions.


At the end of the day, whether it’s a basketball team or a work team, it’s all about picking capable people, having a winning attitude and how you play the game!


Flexicrew hopes to team up with you to provide winners. Look forward to a small gift coming your way in a few days to remind you of how Flexicrew can help YOU be the CHAMPION!

New Job Now

10 Skills you need to get a job NOW

You recently graduated. You’ve prepared your resume and sent it to various hiring managers. Your resume is great and the cover letter clearly states Shutterstock - Businesswhy you are the best candidate for the job. You get an interview call. You get there well-dressed and on-time. You make eye contact with your interviewer, communicate effectively, and answer most questions with confidence. You get hired. Why? Probably because you’ve displayed the skills the employer desired.


However, these skills do not come easy for many graduates, skills which they failed to learn in their probably very expensive education.


What skills are sought by the employers?


In a recent GMAT survey nearly 600 employers were asked about the skills they look for when hiring new business graduates. The following statement by a technical recruiter  sums up the response, “Communications, teamwork, and interpersonal skills are critical—everything we do involves working with other people.”


The following prioritized set of skills and abilities are the most desirable:


  1. Working in a team


  1. Making decisions and solve problems (tie)


  1. Communicating verbally inside and outside an organization


  1. Planning, organizing and prioritizing work


  1. Retrieving and processing information


  1. Analyzing quantitative data


  1. Job specific technical knowledge


  1. Proficient with computer software programs


  1. Creating and/or editing written reports


  1. Persuading and influencing others


What makes it difficult for the employers to recruit talent?


According to a 2015 Talent Search global survey by recruiting firm ManpowerGroup, including 41,700 employers in 42 countries, one in three employers said that there just aren’t enough applicants. But other major reasons are related to the available applicant’s skills and abilities.


  • For example, 34% of them said that the candidates lack the required technical competencies (industry-specific professional qualifications and industry-specific skilled trades’ certifications).
  • In addition, 22% hiring managers cited that lack of experience is behind talent shortages and
  • 17% report soft skills deficits (particularly lack of professionalism, enthusiasm, motivation and a learning mindset).


Possible solutions?


The single most critical factor in bridging the technical and soft skills gap is improving the quality of “hands-on” education. The students need more real life experiences, project based learning, internships, co-op programs. They will then get to confront, discuss, and solve real world issues/problems.

Business leaders must communicate what skills are desirable, offer tools and resources, and collaborate with educators/institutions to showcase and demonstrate the ‘teamwork and communication’ they expect of their potential new hires.

5 Steps That Will Help You Change Careers

Changing careers takes focus and commitment. To be successful, you’ll need to develop short-term, intermediate and long-term goals, and decide on the steps you’ll need to accomplish them. Once you do that, it will be a lot easier to take the plunge into a new line of work.
time for change




  1. Start by researching the marketplace to identify expanding industries. Search the Labor Department’s Occupational Outlook Handbook, job boards and the business press to see what’s areas are most in demand.


  1. Next, take assessment tests to discover your hidden talents and jobs that fit them. Leading tests include the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Strong Interest Inventory and Campbell Interest & Skill Survey. Also, ask individuals you know personally and professionally for their insight into occupations that might be a strong fit for your background and skills.


  1. Once you’ve decided on a new path, do some online research and networking to determine the skills you’ll need to qualify for jobs that interest you. If you lack key credentials, consider signing up for volunteer work enrolling in classes to bridge the gap.


  1. Next, revamp your résumé to highlight skills and experiences that are most relevant to your desired new line of work. A professional career coach may be able to help.


  1. When applying for jobs, craft cover letters that will help employers understand why you’re looking to change careers and how you can add value. Similarly, prepare for interviews by crafting 30-second introduction that sums up what you can do for employers.

Hurricane Preparedness Week – Be Ready

When a natural disaster does strike, Flexicrew has a team that can help with the aftermath. Call us for any Environmental Techs that you might need.


Flexicrew also offers OSHA  Hazmat/Hazwopper training.



Hurricanes are strong storms that can be life-threatening as well as cause serious property-threatening hazards such as flooding, storm surge, high winds and tornadoes. Preparation is the best protection against the dangers of a hurricane. Know the difference between the threat levels and plan accordingly. Know the difference between watches & warnings.


Hurricane Watch is issued when hurricane conditions are a threat within 48 hours. Review your hurricane plans. Get ready to act if a warning is issued, and stay informed.


Hurricane Warning is issued when hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours. Complete your storm preparations and leave the area if directed to do so by authorities. Follow these tips to make sure you and your  family are prepared to stay safe during and after a hurricane.




  • Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS).
  • Check your disaster supplies. Replace or restock as needed.
  • Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (bicycles, lawn furniture).
  • Close your windows, doors and hurricane shutters. If you do not have hurricane shutters, close and board up all windows and doors with plywood.
  • Turn your refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting. Keep them closed as much as possible so that food will last longer if the power goes out.
  • Turn off propane tank.
  • Unplug small appliances.
  • Fill your car’s gas tank.
  • Create a hurricane evacuation plan with members of your household. Planning and practicing your evacuation plan minimizes confusion and fear during the event.
  • Find out about your community’s hurricane response plan. Plan routes to local shelters, register family members with special medical needs and make plans for your pets to be cared for.
  • Obey evacuation orders. Avoid flooded roads and washed out bridges.




  • Water—at least a 3-day supply; one gallon per person per day
  • Food—at least a 3-day supply of non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food
  • Flashlight
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications (7-day supply) and medical items (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, etc.)
  • Multi-purpose tool
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)
  • Cell phone with chargers
  • Family and emergency contact information
  • Extra cash
  • Emergency blanket
  • Map(s) of the area
  • Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers)
  • Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
  • Tools/supplies for securing your home
  • Extra set of car keys and house keys
  • Extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes
  • Rain gear
  • Insect repellent and sunscreen
  • Camera for photos of damage (Insurance Purposes)




  • Continue listening to a NOAA Weather Radio or the local news for the latest updates.
  • Stay alert for extended rainfall and subsequent flooding even after the hurricane or tropical storm has ended.
  • If you evacuated, return home only when officials say it is safe.
  • Drive only if necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed out bridges.
  • Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately to the power company.
  • Stay out of any building that has water around it.
  • Inspect your home for damage. Take pictures of damage, both of the building and its contents, for insurance purposes.
  • Use flashlights in the dark. Do NOT use candles.
  • Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you are sure it’s not contaminated.
  • Check refrigerated food for spoilage. If in doubt, throw it out.
  • Wear protective clothing and be cautious when cleaning up to avoid injury.
  • Watch animals closely and keep them under your direct control.
  • Use the telephone only for emergency calls.

Staffing Companies Help a Struggling US Economy

Since 2008, most Americans have struggled right along with a lagging economy. But job growth through the staffing industry has helped fight both unemployment and underemployment.

More than 2.91 million people are employed by staffing agencies every business day, according to the American Staffing Association. A total of 11.5 million contract employees are hired by staffing firms every year, 80 percent of them working full time.





Four out of five clients believe staffing firms provide a good service in finding people who can become permanent employees.




Among other benefits of contract work, the staffing industry offers employees a path to permanent employment, according to the Association. Workers benefit, too, as 88 percent of contract employees believe that working in a temporary or contract position made them more employable overall.


Flexibility a growing desire among workers
Some staffing opponents say that the lack of permanency for contract employees adds stress to their situation, but many workers believe differently. Most surveyed employees cite that the added flexibility in projects and daily work is seen as a plus. An amazing 23 percent outright prefer the shifting responsibilities of contract work to traditional employment, according to the Association’s figures. A third of staffing employees said they enjoy the challenges of tackling different jobs .


Flexicrew wants to recognize all those who make an impact to our nation’s workforce and economy as a contract worker. We are proud to be part of something bigger than ourselves.

10 Hot Twitter Hashtags for Job Seekers

twitter jobsIt was only a matter of time, in a tough job market, that Twitter would be flooded with both job seekers and job offerers. The way they find each other is through certain key hashtags, the best of which we have laid out for you to help you in your quest for employment. Some of these will give you broad search results and take a while to sift through, but a job is waiting for you on the other end.

  1. #hiring: Here it is, your No. 1 word to find a hiring company is … hiring.
  2. #nowhiring – An alternative to the above.
  3. #tweetmyjobs: It’s a pretty clunky phrase, but #tweetmyjobs has been tagged nearly a million times, so include it in your search.
  4. #HR: The folks handling the headhunting for the company will be from human resources, so go straight to the      source.
  5. #jobopening: Now we’re talking. This tag is almost exclusively used by people offering people work. Easy.
  6. #jobposting: “Jobposting” is another efficient tag to search, only it’s used a bit less than #jobopening.
  7. #employment: Often listed along with #jobs at the end of a tweet, #employment is a major keyword used by businesses in the market for talent.
  8. #jobsearch: Sometimes this will be the only hashtag a hiring company will use, so be sure to make it one of your search terms.
  9. #joblisting: Attention! I’m a hiring employer and this is my way of telling you that I’ve got a job right here just waiting to be filled.
  10. #jobs – just stating the obvious.

It’s also a good idea to search for specific jobs like #welder  #receptionist  #oilfield  and combine that with one of the above. We’ll be posting, so keep an eye out!
