Living in Central Florida

"Central Florida offers a lower cost of living than the coastal areas. This area is home for about 75,000 residents age 55 and older, and this is the city that never sleeps, because its residents are active. Most everyone cruised in a golf cart even if they’re not golfers, around the more than 50 square mile community. It is the preferred method of transportation (tunnels were built so you don’t have to cross any major street). You would need a car if you wanted to leave, but most people ask, why would you want to leave? The hospital, churches, shopping restaurants, schools, golf, swimming pools, polo field, softball fields, movie theatres and on are all within golf car distance.

If you are looking for a gentle climate, thousands of active, happy, people and an affordable cost of living, this may be the place for you. Restaurants, movies, shopping, medical facilities, and 30 plus golf courses are all within golf car distance." (1)

Job Board vs. The Recruiter

Recruiters work directly with the Hiring Manager

The article "Job Board vs. The Recruiter" posted by Softworld, a technology staffing company, gives some explanations of why job seekers are better off being represented by a recruiter vs. applying directly on job boards.

"When you are looking to apply to jobs, most candidates first thought is to check out job boards and send their resume online; however, many candidates end up never hearing back from a hiring manager and their resume is simply lost in the Internet abyss. When working with recruiters, resumes are not only sent directly to the hiring manager, but the resumes are highly filtered to be sure that a qualified candidate has been found beyond the resume.

Job boards are not able to prescreen resumes and instead flood companies with mostly unqualified candidates, making it impossible for hiring managers and HR professionals to keep up with the number of resumes.

Why work with a Recruiter instead of applying online?
  • There is no filtering system for the hundreds of resumes that comes in through the job boards
  • Recruiters take the time to prescreen the candidates and make sure they have the right match
  • When candidates send their resume in through a job board, there is no telling where their resume ends up; recruiters are able to bring resumes directly to the key decision makers
  • Recruiters know the industry which, enables them to help candidate’s determine the right career path for them
  • Recruiters meet with candidates in order to understand the candidate’s qualifications that go beyond the resume"
