Whistler Personnel has some exciting news regarding our quest to ‘Fill the Void’ and resolve Whistler’s staffing crisis 🙂
As recruiters who have successfully placed thousands of candidates and interviewed 5 times as many, we recognize the importance of asking the right questions and also keeping the interview process focused and brief. Going into an interview, there are the 3 things you are trying to assess:
A. JOB SKILLS: Do they have the experience, skills and qualifications required to succeed in the role?
B. PERSONALITY: Would they be a good ‘culture fit’ with the company and the rest of the team?
C. INTELLIGENCE: Are they intelligent? Can they solve problems? Work independently? Handle stressful situations? Continue reading
No interaction is more important to landing your dream job than the interview.
One of the most valuable advantages that a candidate gains when they apply through Whistler Personnel rather than directly to a company is that our client relationships allow us to give candidates an inside glimpse of the prospective employer. Continue reading
As a recruiter who receives 100s of resumes a week, I can assure you that you want your resume to survive the “5 second scan”. This is the average amount of time a recruiter spends looking at each resume before sorting it into one of two piles: YES or NO.
To survive and ensure you have the best odds of hitting the YES pile, follow these simple rules: Continue reading
One of the most critical questions that you’ll get asked at EVERY interview is sometimes the one that feels like the easiest to answer – but getting it wrong can cost you big so do not take it lightly. When the interviewer asks you “Do you have any questions for me?” the worst possible answer you can give is a plain old “no”. Recruiters expect you to ask some great questions so be ready.

Whistler is a unique place – it’s equal parts small town and international resort. And somehow this blends beautifully into a magical place to live and work for over 10,000 residents that regularly call Whistler home. However, a Whistler lifestyle is not for everyone. Housing is a unique challenge – especially for those who are just arriving in town. Pursuing a long-term career seems daunting on the surface, as most of the jobs available are for front-line customer service and hospitality positions. Even buying a new pair of socks or undies can be trying if you are not looking for thermals and you are not quite sold on what the local pharmacy has on display…
