Elevate America to provide free technology training for up to 51,000 Illinoisans

Chicago-  Governor Pat Quinn joined Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at the Chicagoland Chamber's Annual Meeting to announce a major public-private partnership between Microsoft and the State of Illinois to provide free technology training for up to 51,000 Illinoisans, starting July 31.

"This is a great opportunity for Illinoisans looking to improve their skill set," said Governor Quinn.  "Whether you are out of a job or the technological revolution has simply passed you by, taking advantage of these vouchers is one way to get back on board as our economy moves forward."

The Microsoft Elevate America initiative will provide up to 1 million vouchers nationwide for Microsoft e-Learning courses and select certification exams.  The program is part of Microsoft's overall effort to provide technology training for at least 2 million people during the next three years.

"Microsoft is committed to improving access to the education and workforce readiness skills required for 21st century jobs," said Ballmer.  "We believe these types of public-private partnerships are key to helping rebuild the nation's economy and getting people back to work."

In Illinois, Microsoft is working with the state's Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and its partners to distribute 51,000 vouchers starting July 31.  Online courses available using Elevate America vouchers include intermediate level Microsoft Office 2003 and Microsoft Office 2007 training, and advanced-level training for technical professionals.

From August through October, eligible Illinoisans can apply for a voucher through one of the following workforce networks:

  • Illinois workNet Centers, including Mayor Daley's WorkNet System
  • Digital Inclusion Community Technology Centers, including the Illinois and City of Chicago Digital Excellence Network and affiliated non-profit agencies.

Support High Speed Rail Service between Chicago & Dubuque
2 faces
It is the mission of the Northwest Illinois Blackhawk Express to bring rail service to our region, providing a route connecting Dubuque and Chicago with stops in Galena, Freeport, Rockford and Belvidere.
With Amtrak rail, our region would have the ability to:
• Provide safe, efficient options for transportation
• Build a foundation for economic competitiveness
• Support interconnected, livable communities within a region
• Offer alternative inter-city transportation that is among the cleanest and most energy-efficient transportation modes.
The availability of funding through the State of Illinois Capital Program and federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for the expansion of Amtrak presents a feasible and timely opportunity for our region. Never have we been this close to receiving federal and state legislative support and funding to bring inter-city rail transportation to our region.
Become involved today! How? Sign the petition http://tiny.cc/dUnth to show your support as we take our combined voice to our elected officials and show the regional strength and support for bringing Amtrak here. http://tiny.cc/dUnth and http://www.BringRail.com

Calling Around….Looking for Work
2 faces

One of our policies at Furst for those individuals registered with us who are available and seeking employment is to make sure they phone into our office once a week to let us know of your availability. We also receive calls from individuals who are seeking employment but not yet registered with our company.

There are a lot of people looking for work right now. Unfortunately, there are not enough jobs to offer each person who calls us seeking work. If you scroll through our previous blogs you will see we have tried to offer some suggestions to set yourself apart from the crowd whether it is through interview preparation, job research, networking, or cover letter and resume/cv preparation. 

One thing that strikes me a bit odd is how people conduct themselves when phoning a company seeking work. Perhaps it is because we are a staffing firm/temp agency and they feel we conduct ourselves differently than applying directly with a company. In the past week, I personally have probably talked to 20 people who simply state “I am looking for a job” or “I need a job” or “Do you have any work”. 

Let’s go back to setting yourself apart…in a positive way. If you are serious about your job search, conduct your search in a serious and professional manner. I had no idea whether those individuals calling in where currently registered with Furst. I don’t know their name. I don’t know what type of work they are seeking. We speak with a large number of people each day and I cannot recognize every voice….some yes.

Whether you are calling Furst, another staffing firm, a business or a government agency write a little script to guide you through and clearly explain your purpose for calling. 

Let’s say you are not familiar with a staffing firm you are calling: “Good Morning. My name is Jennifer. I was wondering if someone is available to speak with me about current and future job opportunities.”

Let’s say you are registered with the staffing firm: “Good Morning. This is Jennifer Furst. I am registered with FurstStaffing and am calling in my availability for the week. My experience focuses on Machine Operation, Picking & Packing, some Material Handling…but I am flexible for anything you feel I could do. Preference is on 1st or 2nd shift…but will do 3rd. Do you have anything that matches up with my skills?” 

Let’s say you are not familiar with a business you are calling: “Good Morning. My name is Jennifer Furst. I am interested in learning about employment opportunities with ABC Co. Who should I speak with regarding potential opportunities? Are they available?”

In each of these situations, the person on the other end of the phone will know how to move forward with the conversation from the start. They will not have to play 20 questions. Remember conduct yourself  professionally and you will stand out more than someone who is unprepared.

Suggestions on Writing a Cover Letter
2 faces

The cover letter is my least favorite part of a resume to write.  Don't want to sound desperate, don't want to sound like a ‘know-it-all' or a fake.  A few weeks back we ran an ad for a Customer Service Representative with Manufacturing experience.  Here are a couple of examples of cover letters I received for this opportunity and some thoughts on each of them.

Example #1: Please accept my resume for consideration on the position with your company that I am applying for.  I believe that I have the knowledge and experiences that would make me become an asset to your organization in the position.  I look forward to hearing from you so that I can discuss this position in further detail. Thank you.

Any thoughts on this example?  It is too generalized.  I may have 10 positions available within my company, there is nothing in this specifying what this person does for a living or what job they are responding to.  Most people sound alike in their cover letters and resumes.  The goal is to make the HR rep/recruiter remember what you said....in a positive way.  Why does the employer need you....keep those specific skills and characteristics in mind.

Example #2:  Dear Sir or Madam:
As a buyer, I appreciated the value of seasoned customer service representatives who knew me, my company and my product applications.

In different capacities throughout my career, I have worked with customers to meet their product needs. As a staff manufacturing engineer in the computer monitor division at XYZ Co, I visited and coordinated start-ups of monitors for Sun Systems, Data Point, Burroughs, and others. At EFG Co., I visited and interacted with EFG management to establish focused factories to allow them to shift production between their different facilities, and I took over production of transformers for Fender Guitar when it was dissatisfied with our performance. As plant manager at LMN Co, I regularly interacted with customers as the product application expert. At ABC Co, I mentored customer service representatives to understand the complexity of the different product lines of the three divisions and had to answer direct customer questions on
I have both gathered and developed costs for customer quotes and have a thorough understanding of material, labor, transportation and overhead costs. In addition at each employer, I have identified improper costing of products that put sales at a competitive disadvantage. I have extensive experience creating and maintaining bills of material working with design engineers, production supervision, material personnel and purchasing as well as customers and vendors.
I understand the importance of filling every line to the specified quantity on a
customer's order just as our vendors should understand the importance of filling every line to the specified quantities on our purchase orders. If the vendor fails, we fail, and the customer fails. Failure is not an option.
I have worked for large, highly structured corporations and moderately sized, loosely organized companies. In either case, I was uncompromisingly dedicated to the pursuit of the company's and its customers' betterment.
As a customer service representative for your client, I will know the product line, I
will know the company, and I will know the customers and their applications. I will

Ok, there is such a thing as over kill.  This example has some good points but I can honestly tell you it was way too much.  HR/Recruiters receive large numbers of responses to their job postings.  The length of this cover letter makes it unappealing to read and because of a bad cover letter many hiring managers may never see the resume.  If you do read this it is entirely about the author...they are SuperPerson.  It is a hard sell...a bit pushy.  They talk a lot about what "I" did but not so much about the results of the actions, skills, characteristics.

Example #3:  My goal is for a fresh start with new opportunities.  My ideal company will consist of people who care about doing a great job, people whom I can learn from and grown with.  I am most interested in the areas of Customer Service and Office and or Accounting Assistance.  These are areas in which I am quite familiar with.  My most recent position consisted mostly of processing new orders and creating certificates of compliance for our products.  I also have a great deal of experience in dealing with customers concerning discrepancies in paperwork and account balances.  I enjoyed my most recent position very much however, was recently laid off due to lack of work.  I have no official management experience at this time but have been left in charge of small groups of coworkers on more than one occasion.  I am very quick to pick up on procedures and given the chance will make a valuable asset to any organization.

This cover letter shares a little too much.  It is good to make the hiring people have a little intrigue.  That being said the individual appears to be sincere.  However, never talk negatively about yourself, your experience or former employer.  No need to point out any weaknesses...don't worry the interviewer will ask about these once you get to the interview. There was no conclusion to the cover letter.  The statements are not strong and commanding but rather casual comments.  There is not much structure or organization to this cover letter.  And again, this is not specific to my company...maybe my job but this candidate is going to be a ‘valuable asset to any organization'. 

Example #4:

Dear Human Resource Manager:

I am writing in response to your advertisement for a Customer Service Representative.  As you can see by my enclosed resume, I have several years of experience I can bring to your company.

I am a very hard worker and have had many enjoyable years working in the Customer Service/Manufacturing field.  My goal at this time is to seek a position within a company in which I can build a lasting career.  I am also hoping to work with a company that focuses on teamwork as being a strong component and to provide customers with the services they deserve and expect.

I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss this position.  You may contact me at xxx-xx-xxxx any time to schedule an interview.  I know I can be a great asset to you not only from my desire to learn more about your company but also by bringing 30 years of experience to you.  I am excited at the prospect of being able to join your team of professionals.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.


Wow, as an employer it sounds like I am going to get something with this employee.  What I like about this cover letter is it is stating 1) candidate has experience 2) has integrity and expects her employer too as well 3) knows what they are applying for 4) is open to learning 5) teamwork is important.  It was a very well put together cover letter.  This candidate touched on 2 items that could be considered skills/characteristics that are found in a CSR role:  Integrity and teamwork.  I will tell you that I phoned this candidate on a Thursday or Friday.  Conducted a phone interview and schedule for them to come in on Monday for a face-to-face interview and testing.  I received an email over the weekend from this candidate stating they had received a job offer and had accepted. 

There is a lot of information on-line about how to format a resume.  If you are interested, FurstStaffing, also has a Resume Guide that I can email you if you leave me your name and email address.  I hope it helped to see these examples and assists in planning your Cover Letter.  Furst is here to help if you have any questions.   heretohelp@furststaff.com

How to Successfully Prepare & Implement a Reduction in Force or Plant Closing
In these harsh economic times, employers face difficult challenges. Maintaining appropriate workforce levels is now more essential than ever. However, reductions in force (RIF) or downsizing provide fertile ground for litigation. Plant closings have enormous legal risks as well. RIFs and Plant Closings may affect one employee or hundreds of employees depending on the size of the business. These decisions and the method of implementation requires careful planning to avoid (or to defend) litigation. Click here to read more.

4 Stimulus Plan Tax Perks for Business The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (better known as the Stimulus Act) includes a laundry list of tax changes, including four provisions that will be very helpful for many small to medium-sized businesses.

Minimizing Your Social Security Payroll Tax/Self-Employment Tax Like many people, you might get more back in benefits than you pay in Social Security taxes, but not necessarily. For example, you may never need to use all of the benefits you’re entitled to, or you may be entitled to a greater benefit based on someone else’s earnings record. Jacob Fitzgerald, VP with Ameriprise Advisor Services, offers insight into understanding how Social Security payroll taxes and self-employment taxes finance your benefits, who may & may not benefit from minimizing SS payroll taxes, strategies that may be used to minimize payroll taxes, tax considerations and more.

Should Employers Use Search Engines to Screen Candidates?
You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have the Internet. Hiring Managers take great caution when conducting interviews face-to-face to protect themselves and their company by avoiding questions generally related to nationality, religion, age, marital or family status, gender, and health and medical situations. And yet with the click of the mouse, all of that information (digital dirt) is available immediately. Most likely, more information than they care to have accessed. Click here to read more.

Recovering from a Bad Interview

Recovering from a Bad Interview

Let's face it. Sometimes we have bad days. Unfortunately, sometimes these days happen to fall on the same day as a job interview. When this occurs there is still time to recover. Here are two ways to make the best out of a bad situation.


·         Late Arrival - If you're lost, stuck in traffic or just running late, it's important to let the company know you won't be there on time. Prior to leaving your house, take all interview contact information with you in case this happens. If you're running more than 10 minutes behind schedule, you should ask if the interviewer needs to reschedule the interview. If he or she says yes, take the time to apologize both verbally and write a note apologizing for the inconvenience. 


·         Contact Information - In the excitement or nervousness of an interview many people forget to ask for the business card or contact information of their interviewer. If your interview was arranged through human resources, or a staffing company like FurstStaffing, you can contact them and ask for the information.  If you dealt directly with the hiring manager you can call the front desk, tell the receptionist you were there for an interview, and ask if they'll give you their information.


Many unpredictable things can occur during a job interview.  It's up to you to acknowledge the good with the bad, and make the best out of the situation.

The world is a flutter about an unsuspecting stand out performer from the television program, Britain’s Got Talent. Basically, the equivalent to the state’s American Idol. This stand out performer is a forty-eight year old Scot named, Susan Boyle. If you haven’t heard of her, where have you been?

Susan Boyle is unemployed, never been kissed, lives with her 10 year old cat Pebbles, cared for her mother until her passing in 2007 at the age of 91. Susan was starved of oxygen at birth which resulted  in a learning disability. Attending church every weekend helped her singing develop, aided by her mother’s constant encouragement. 

Simon Cowell , a judge on the show, asked “What is the dream?” The response, “To be a professional singer.” Simon responded, “Why hasn’t it worked for you.” “I’ve never been given the chance before. But here’s to hoping it’ll change.” Boy did it! Ms. Boyle sang “I Dream a Dream” from Les Miserables.  The title could not be more appropriate for the performer and her life. Ms. Boyle’s performance is being heard and appreciated around the world. The YouTube video has been viewed over 19 million times. Ms. Boyle’s Facebook page has over 200,000 fans and growing…quickly! 

There is so much to learn from the story of Susan Boyle. 

·         Have we all become too cynical? We all know the saying ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’. Underneath this rather frumpy exterior lies an incredible person with such a positive outlook. Not to mention a pretty fantastic singing talent. From being abused and teased by her schoolmates to the looks and laughs of the audience as Ms. Boyle came out and declared she would like to be like Elaine Page, the first lady of British musical theatre. Who was laughing in the end? Mostly Susan Boyle. She blew the judges and the audience away. They were too gobsmacked to reacted other than clapping their hands together whilst teary eyed. You never know what amazing talents people have, what hardships they have been through and had to overcome. While we all may not have the talent of signing as beautifully as Susan Boyle, hopefully we can all take a look at how we treat each other and show the same respect we ourselves would like to receive. Have you seen the commercial where one person does a good dead and it becomes contagious with each person having witnessed a good dead then paying it forward. That’s how we should approach every day.

·         We all need a chance. We hear this quite often in the employment business. A candidate has had schooling or training and now just needs someone to give them an opportunity to use those skills. It may be hard to find that one person to give you that chance. But don’t give up. Keep networking. Keep putting yourself out there. Nothing happens when you are sitting at home on the couch watching television. It is on you to find that chance. 

·         What is your dream/passion?  In a time when unemployment is so high maybe now is the time to identify and follow your dreams and passions. I had the pleasure of meeting a guy named, Armando Pedroso. After 9/11, he lost his sales job which he had for 18 years. Armando has never painted but decided to teach himself and found something that he is truly passionate about. Fortunately, for Armando he has been able to make a living through his art career. Not everyone will be able to make a career out of their passion, but maybe we need to engage in the passion more often and include it in our life. Take a look at our lives and simplify. Enjoy what we do have.

·         Attitude….The Right Attitude. The emotion of Ms. Boyle’s performance caught us all. We knew it was either going to be horrible or wonderful. It was not only wonderful it was unbelievably beautiful.   It was a story of following a dream and believing in yourself and that dream. Taking chances and not giving up, going for it!   A few weeks ago, we posted a blog on Charles Swindell’s poem ‘Attitude’. Susan Boyle’s story is completely about attitude. The poem says, “I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” As one of the judges put it, the entire audience was against her. I don’t think anyone told Susan Boyle that bit of information. If we could all have the attitude and outlook  Ms. Boyle uses in her approach to life we might see some more magical moments in our own lives. After her performance she said she felt “bloody fantastic”…why wouldn’t she. Susan achieved a goal of singing in front of a large audience, fulfilled a promise to her late mom who encouraged her to sing, and found that person who gave her a chance….now over 19 million of them!

If for some reason you have not seen Susan Boyle’s performance, you must check it out.
