How do I get started with AP Professionals?

Apply directly to one of our available job opportunities or submit your resume generally. If your background is a match for the types of opportunities we offer, a Recruiter will call you to collect more information about your job search requirements.

I would like to confirm my resume was received. Who can I call?

You may call our office at (585) 381 – 7350 and one of our Recruiters will be happy to assist you.

Do I have to pay a fee or sign a contract to register with AP Professionals?

Job seekers are never charged a fee or required to sign a contract to register with AP Professionals. If you are actively seeking new employment, we anticipate that you will continue to search for and apply to positions on your own. We encourage you to do so! Our services should supplement your job search.

What types of opportunities are offered by AP Professionals?

We offer professional level part time and full time employment with our client partners on a direct hire, temp to hire, and temporary / contract basis within the following specialties: Accounting and Finance, Administrative, Engineering and Operations, and Human Resources.

What is the difference between direct hire, temp to hire, and temporary / contract employment?

On a direct hire basis, you are considered an employee of our client partner upon start – just as if you applied to and accepted the position on your own. On a temp to hire or temporary / contract basis, you are considered an employee of AP Professionals. Temp to hire allows you and the client a trial period of typically 90 days to assess mutual long-term fit before hire. Temporary employment has many benefits as well; read about them here.

After I register with AP Professionals, how will I find out about positions that match my background?

As they become available, AP Professionals will call you to discuss job opportunities that are a potential match with your education, experience, and skills. However, all of our available opportunities are posted on our job board and new opportunities are shared bi-weekly in our newsletter. If you are interested in an opportunity, contact your AP Professionals Recruiter directly.

I haven’t heard from AP Professionals in a while. Am I still being considered for employment?

Should I check in with my AP Professionals Recruiter to let them know I am still available and seeking employment?

This is not required, but the lines of communication are always open. If you are seeking temporary or temp to hire employment you may check in weekly. If you are seeking direct hire employment you may check in biweekly.

Will AP Professionals share my resume without my knowledge? Will I have the choice to decline opportunities presented to me?

If your expectations are not met, please contact your AP Professionals Recruiter to discuss the matter and we will reach a solution together.
