The toy industry is in a state of flux that is heading into a recovery stage. Declines in sales at the end of the year were no where near as bad as some people predicted but were down slightly. The industry was still reeling from the closure of a major distributor and the downsizing that resulted. Experienced professionals and executives seeking employment will be glad to know there are toy jobs available. Those who have held positions for several years may feel a bit disconnected from the process.
Mini Refresher Courses
A prominent toy recruiter agency has a wealth of information available on the website. Recruiting executives since 1981 has provided unique approaches to processes for clients and candidates. The navigational tab to look for is “Career Advice” and there are five topics with multiple headings under each one. Topics include a basic mindset, resume writing, preparing for an interview, interviewing, and handling job offers. It is wise to review the information before making an appointment to register with the agency.
A press release tab and one for the blog are also well worth browsing. Any questions or clarification needed can be addressed while going through the registering procedures. Register as soon as possible to be included in the data base. This is the first place recruiters turn their attention when a request arrives from a client. If there are candidates that meet the requirements and will be an ideal fit for the client, the search is over. It is only if there are not candidates that a new search begins.
Access to the current positions is another benefit because it gives those registered an idea of what companies are looking for and where those companies are located. Qualifications, locations, salary ranges, and position titles are available for review. Some positions are in the US, some are international positions, and others are jobs that can be completed from home. The jobs include marketing and project development, sales and international jobs, operations, engineering, and quality assurance.
Companies of all sizes are focusing on how to move forward, remain competitive, and guard against future closings. Toys, juvenile furniture, and learning electronic devices will always be needed due to the demands of kids and parents. The industry is slowly recovering and requires experienced professionals to lead the way.
