SCANNER, PHONE, AND FAX
Communicating with potential employers is a key part of your job search. Job Junction provides phone service so that you are able to call employers and inquire about job opportunities and interview schedules. Access to scanners and fax machines enables you to send and receive documents like your résumé or job application.
You will hand out a lot of résumés in your job search. And it’s important to fine-tune your résumé to highlight different skills and experience for different jobs. Job Junction provides free photocopiers to make this process faster and more convenient.
In some cases, employers may not be able to meet with you in their own facilities. Job Junction is happy to provide a quiet, professional meeting room where you can talk comfortably with potential employers.
If you don’t have a phone, or a reliable way of receiving messages, the staff at Job Junction will set up a confidential message mailbox for you in our phone system.
