Career Move Month, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s distinctive month dedicated to hiring, has wrapped its third annual campaign. Locations from Boston to San Diego (and many in between) have promoted openings on job boards, searched locally, and hosted open houses to attract top talent. We’ve spent countless hours recruiting and interviewing, and we are excited for new employees to join our team!
Throughout the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system, locations have received 8,455 applications and hired 891 new team members. This is an overall growth of 38% from March 2014, and we are proud to have offered 335 more jobs than last year! The number of applications and hires will continue to grow as we finish our tallies through the next few weeks. Each new team member is vital to the success of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, which has experienced 60 months of consecutive growth!
We are thrilled to be welcoming so many new people into the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® family during our third annual Career Move Month. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is all about growth and opportunity, and it’s exciting to be able to share that message and real life success stories during this special time.

While Career Move Month is coming to a close, it’s not too late to apply! Many locations are still looking for frontline staff, such as movers and drivers, administrative support staff including marketing coordinators and customer service representatives, and various management roles.
If you’re searching for a job and have already interviewed, it’s never too late to still make a great impression. Here are helpful post-interview tips to help you get the job!
Say “thanks.” Sending a short email or note thanking the interviewer(s) for their time is a great way to separate yourself from other candidates. This advice is widespread, but many candidates don’t reach out post-interview. Don’t have the email address for everyone you met? Email your contact at the company thanking them for everyone’s time.
Keep it professional. Some companies will check out Facebook profiles, Twitter feeds, or Google+ profiles. Make sure what someone sees when they look you up will make them want you on their team.
Connect with your references. Most companies check references with each new hire. Make sure your references know where you interviewed and how it went! If possible, send your references a job description, and highlight the parts of the job in which you’d excel.
Stay positive! The interview process may take longer than you may think. Relax and stay positive. If you still haven’t heard back three weeks after an interview, reach out to see where your candidacy lies.
The next time you leave an interview, use this advice to snag the job. Who knows, it could be with us!
