A Little Something About Creative Achievements
Creative Achievements is vastly different from a traditional employment or temporary agency. The staff gets to know our clients thoroughly before marketing them to employers. We help build specific skills so that clients are armed with an effective resume, cover letters, interview techniques, and up-to-date job-seeking skills. This partnership is key to the clients and our long-term success. We also strive to develop strong relationships with our employers.
For over 18 years, we have helped candidates with:
Assessing skills and abilities
Choosing jobs that are suitable for their skills
Job seeking skills
Researching and connecting with employers
Career planning and retention
Creative Achievements specializes in assisting persons that need extra help to find a job due to a disability or other barrier to work.
