Will your services cost me anything?
No, our fees are paid by the hiring employer. You should never pay a fee to work with a recruiting company.
I just applied for a job through your organization. What are the next steps?
We will review your application and resume and contact you if you meet the job’s selection criteria.
I’m an exact fit for your posted job. What’s the process?
Please apply through our Jobs Page. We will review your resume and if your background fits we will contact you for more information. After our conversation we will ensure your information lands on the hiring manager’s desk. We will work with you throughout the process to schedule interviews and will be your advocate the entire way. Our goal is to help you easily navigate the hiring process.
Why should I work with a recruiter vs. applying directly to the company?
When working with Avalon, you will bypass some of the lengthy processes, online applications, initial screenings and the dreaded online database ‘black hole’. We can make you stand out amongst the crowd and get your resume directly on the hiring manager’s desk. As you know, you’re more than just your resume. With our connections, we can get on the phone with the hiring managers and talk with them about who you are and what you bring to the table. We can provide you with an inside scoop on the company and the job to help you prepare to ace the interview. We will also be your counsel throughout the interview and salary negotiation process.
On the Jobs page, what are the Other Industry Jobs that you are connected to?
Avalon has been selected to be part of a National network of top recruiters. This network is a free portal for our top talent to find roles outside of our exclusive Health Plan opportunities. Feel free to search through the National network and apply for any role you are excited about. The process will still be the same and you will still work directly with us. This feature is paid for by our organization and is an added bonus when working with Avalon!
