Why work with Pinto Employment Search?

  • Posting your resume to public job boards leaves you susceptible to discovery by employers/coworkers, getting lost in the throng of applicants, and being seen as an unfocused job seeker.  We do not utilize these avenues.
  • Pinto, together with a network of reliable partners, has access to hundreds of quality jobs around the US, representing a variety of industries.
  • While we specialize in Logistics, our partners specialize in everything else!
  • Once you apply to a particular job, the recruiter in charge will reach out if it’s a match for the position.
  • We know that changing jobs is exciting, nerve-wracking, and even scary at times.  Team Pinto will help and provide guidance throughout the interview process.

We also offer:

  • A user-friendly, private, web-based application process
  • Partnerships with diverse industry players such as steamship lines, 3PLs, NVOCCs, brokers, drayage companies, importers/exporters, etc.

INTERVIEW TIPS: How to Make Your Interview Count

  • Research the hiring company prior to your interview.

  • Bring extra copies of your resume.
  • Turn cell phone off.
  • Remember first impressions matter:  smile – eye contact – firm handshake!

  • Speak positively about current and former employers, colleagues and jobs.
  • Address salary, benefits and time off only if the interviewer initiates the topic.

  • Promptly send a thank-you email to all who were present at the meeting.
  • Call Pinto Employment as soon as possible afterwards.

COUNTER OFFERS

A counter offer is basically an enticement made by a current employer to an employee that is considering resigning.  You’re suddenly treated like a rock star by upper management.  It may seem flattering, but consider this before accepting:

  • Companies generally don’t take kindly to counter offers. If they are in a bind, they may feel their hand has been forced.  Consequently, they will remember your actions when they need to cut back, or keep you there while they find your replacement. By the time you’re let go, your job offer will be gone.
  • Remember why you resigned in the first place. Chances are, there are serious reasons (salary, benefits, lack of opportunity, negative environment, etc.) behind the effort to find a new job. Accepting a counter offer does not automatically fix the problems you’ve been encountering.
  • Will you need to resort to this tactic to effect change every time you feel deep dissatisfaction at your workplace?
  • Your reputation may be compromised; you may be viewed as disloyal.

Don’t stunt your career growth by remaining with a company that makes you unhappy, especially if you’ve been given the opportunity for a fresh start.  Consider the long-term implications and repercussions of a counter offer, and choose wisely!
