Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Arbor Associates the best choice for me?
Almost 40 years of experience means we know the industry very well. We match employees with fulfilling and flexible positions that best fit their qualifications, needs and schedules.
What’s the best way to have Arbor connect me with open positions?

First, submit your info. Please include a resume (and certifications if applicable). We will review your qualifications and experience. If you match our current hiring needs and requirements, an Arbor Regional Recruiter will reach out to schedule phone and in-person interviews with you. Once you apply for a position at Arbor, you will be added to our contact list and will receive updates about positions that best fit your background.

How can you help me stand out among other candidates?
During our interview process, we explore your needs, wants and even your personality. So, when jobs come in, those intangibles will help us provide clients with a better sense of who you are beyond the resume.
What if I am not interested in a position when it is offered? Is it all right to turn it down? 
Not every job is going to meet the expectations you have. If you are not interested in a position, you are free to decline. We will continue to offer positions to you based on your skills and preferences. 
What if I am on an assignment and decide it is not for me? 
We realize not every job may be a good fit for you; sometimes you do not know that until you have tried the position. If you are on an assignment and find it is not going to work for you, we will ask that you contact us immediately. You may be asked to stay at an assignment long enough for us to find a replacement, but we will attempt to remedy the situation as quickly as possible. As with any interaction, communication is the key. We expect open communication from our associates, and they can expect the same from Arbor.
What do I pay for your services? 
 As an applicant, you will not pay for any of the services Arbor Associates provides. 
Can you add me to your job opening email list?
Yes. We’ll automatically add you to our email list after you submit your info.
I applied to one of your open positions from another job site. What is my next step?

Go ahead and submit your info through our webpage too. That way, we can take a more detailed look at your background and see if you’re a good fit for other available jobs.

I responded to a job posting and never heard back.

There are many reasons why that can happen. For example, the client may change the job requirements or cancel the request altogether. Or your background may not have matched the position. Whatever the reason, don’t get discouraged. We receive new job orders every day, so keep responding to the positions that match your background and experience. Or feel free to check in with your recruiter periodically. We’re always here to help.
