CCR Web Site Upgrade

Posted by | May 1, 2016 | Jobs

CCR is transitioning to a new version of our web site.  Currently our ‘Job Board’ is being redesigned, so it is not available at this time.

Employers, please call (816) 582-1809 or email with your job postings and we will share that information.

Job seekers, please attend our weekly workshops and ask one of the Facilitators for information on jobs that employers have shared with CCR.

Thanks for your patience.

IMG_0679[1]  IMG_0676[1] IMG_0656[1] “Your resume should me more like an appetizer, rather than a four course meal.  Give us just enough about yourself that makes us want to reach out for phone interview and find our what more there is about you! (Panelist)

“If I am interested in one of these companies that presented today, how do I go about meeting them?” (Job Seeker)  “First you find which CCR Facilitator sponsored that Panelist and ask for there advice/direction. Then  you find an opportunity that you are qualified for and apply online, lastly you let the CCR Facilitator know you are “in the pipe” and the the Job Seeker and the CCR Facilitator will best figure out together how to get your resume moved from the stack of 600 to the stack of 20.” (CCR Facilitator)

“What is it with all these cards with prayer and people’s names on them? (Job Seeker)  “We here at CCR start each meeting with prayer, that is for our job search.  We end each meeting with prayer for those whom we have learned have a much bigger challenge in their lives than finding gainful work. These picture are then sent to each one that we have prayer for.” (CCR Facilitator)

Posted by | February 28, 2016 | Roundtable Day

Our CCR Panel Roundtable included guests from: FedEx Ground, First Student, JOCO Sheriff Office, Netsmart, and MCC – Penn Valley.  Each one of these companies is hiring!

    “The CCR Job Club is a resource for us.  If a CCR Facilitator contacts me with an endorsement for a particular job seeker who is a regular participant at meetings, I am going to make sure that person’s information is reviewed.”  (Panelist)

“Up to 90% of our promotions are hired from within.  Within HR, I am the only outsider.  What made the difference for me was that I had a meaningful relationship/ connection who was already working in the company’s HR.”  (Panelist)

“Couple things, if we do not know you, how can we endorse you?  Also because so many companies today hire from within, you should be able to step down to step up.”  (CCR Facilitator)

“Now I understand, for me to get my resume moved from the stack of 600 to the stack of 20 is develop relationships with the CCR Facilitators who already have a relationship with these people who are hiring.  What a great process!”  (Job Seeker)

CCR’s guests this month included representatives from BasysPro, CityWide, HNTB, Oddo, and Waffle House.  Valuable insight into company culture and many oppptunities were made available to our job seekers.

    “We ask all the open ended questions so do not hesitate to personalize the interview with some of your personal experiences.  This will help us get to know the real you and how you will fit into our company culture.”  (Panelist)

“Reminder, the CCR makes every attempt we can to protect our Panelist privacy and time, that is why job seekers are asked to go through the Facilitator as first point of contact, by doing this the appropriate introduction can be made on the Panelist timeline, not ours.” (Facilitator)

“We are going so fast right now, I have to hire my replacement.  That probably sounds funny, the truth is we are growing at a pace where we now need two Directors of HR.” (Panelist)

“I am still working, but I saw your email blast identifying the companies that were going to be in attendance today so I wanted to come and learn and listen as much as possible, you never know.”  (Job Seeker Alumni)

“Before I begin I’d like to give the CCR Facilitators a shout out.  The CCR Job Club has developed it’s network over the years, I know because I sat where you are today. Make the CCR part of your network to finding your next career, it works.” (Panelist)

“Just so I understand, you (the CCR) meets each Saturday and once a month you have these Panels with great guests just like today?”  (Job Seeker)

“Do I think a hand written thank you card is important.  Let me just say, we have hired a qualified individual over another just because they sent a thank you card during the hiring process.”  (Panelist)
