Each month RochesterWorks! features a Monroe County employer that is noted for their dedication to recruiting and using RochesterWorks! services. During the month we spotlight their company on our website and give them an opportunity to share tips and information about their business with interested job seekers at our Employer Presentation.
In June we invited Verizon Wireless to be our Employer of the Month. At their presentation representatives from the Human Resources team here in Rochester shared stories, insight, and tips with everyone who attended.
If you missed out on this great event, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered!

Top Tips for Your Job Search
- Experience is an Advantage
Don’t negate any of your life experience. Whether it is an internship or volunteer work, experience is experience. Use it to your advantage. If you are transitioning to a new industry explain how it relates to telecommunications and customer service.
- Get an Insider’s Perspective
Research every position you apply for. Get an insider’s perspective on the job and decide if it’s really something you can excel in. Schedule informational interviews, research a company’s website, or connect with someone you know that can help you learn more.

- Follow Up and Follow Through
Unless otherwise stated, it’s okay to follow up on your job application after submitting it online. It demonstrates your sincere interest and can help to set you apart as long as you keep in mind that many jobs produce a large volume of applications.
It’s also very important that you are available. Many times we are unable to contact an applicant due to an inactive phone number or invalid email. Check your voicemail often and reply promptly to invitation and request emails related to your application. It will help us to get you to an interview faster.
