Why would a fashion industry job seeker want to work at/with your company?

Employers and employees in the fashion industry would want to work with Jaral Fashion Personnel because we have placed fashion candidates with fashion employers for the past 53 years. We aggressively recruit every day for top talent.

Tell us about the hiring process at your company.

We recruit fashion candidates four ways…. direct recruiting, referrals, our data base and advertising.

What should job seekers know about your job as a recruiter?

Fashion employers and fashion employees will not find a more aggressive recruiting firm to help them. We cannot guarantee that we can help you, but you can be assured that we will try our targeted and complete commitment on your behalf.

What’s the craziest thing a job seeker has ever said to you?

The candidate did not show up for an interview because he said his dog swallowed a pipe. I never found out what happened to his dog or the candidate…

What advice do you have for younger job seekers?

This is advice I have for younger job seekers, for older job seekers and all others. Adversity is unavoidable, adversity is normal. Uncertainty is unavoidable, uncertainty is normal. Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is courage to continue that counts. In other words, you have got to get over it and keep on going…. easy to say, hard to do… but necessary.
