Snelling Staffing Services of the Midlands, a full-service staffing agency that provides customized solutions to candidates and companies across the Midlands, is offering a free Resume Review and Software Reboot service through August 31, 2020. To have a resume reviewed at no charge, or to access free online tutoring and testing for tools like Microsoft Office and Quickbooks, email [email protected] or call 803.359.7644.
“Many Midlands residents are looking for work during this historic economic downturn,” says Elizabeth Trenbeath, franchise president of Snelling Staffing Services of the Midlands. “As a community service, Snelling Midlands is providing free career tools to help job seekers assess and build their skills as they explore the job market.”
Resumes must be submitted via email in Microsoft Word format, with no cover letters, to [email protected]. The original resume and the edited version will be returned via email, along with any suggestions.
Job seekers can access free online tutoring and testing for Microsoft Office products such as Word and Excel. For example, candidates can use these free testing tools to assess and increase their keyboard typing speed, measured in words per minute (WPM) and keystrokes per hour (KPH).
Free online testing is available for a wide array of specialized software, ranging from Quickbooks and other financial/accounting platforms to industrial, technical, and clerical software.
In addition to taking advantage of Snelling Midlands’ free Resume Review and Software Reboot, candidates preparing to re-enter the job market can visit www.snelling.com/midlands to view selected job postings from area employers.
With two local offices, one in Lexington and one in Columbia, South Carolina, Snelling Midlands has provided human resources (HR) solutions to clients across the region since its founding in 1982 by Trenbeath’s mother, Gina McCuen. The firm specializes in placing candidates in temporary, temp-to-hire and direct hire/career positions, maintaining numerous relationships with employers across a wide, multi-county service area that includes Richland, Lexington, Newberry, Saluda, Fairfield and Kershaw Counties.
“We work with our clients to ensure that we make the right fit the first time,” says Trenbeath. “The local landscape for staffing companies has changed dramatically, yet we pride ourselves in our reputation for consistently delivering the best candidates to customers within their hiring budgets. Snelling Midlands is a family-owned business, and we are proud to connect people and businesses with the power to thrive.”
