  4. What happens after Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT receives your resume?
    • Each resume is evaluated in terms of the specific position applied for and in terms of placeability with other current and future searches.
    • If we feel we can help, you will receive a telephone interview. If this telephone interview goes well, normally your paperwork will then be presented on each of our searches that meet your and our guidelines.
    • Your application will be evaluated upon receipt. If we are unable to consider you for present searches that match your experience, location, and salary requirements, your application will be entered into our database for future consideration.
  5. What is the ‘Quick Apply’ option?
    • The ‘Quick Apply’ is a shorter, less detailed application. 
    • When a candidate submits a ‘Quick Apply,’ it allows our recruiters to quickly determine whether we can assist you. If, after reviewing your information, we believe you have the qualifications our employers are looking for, you will need to register with us and complete a more detailed application.
