- Create a Solid Resume
Begin with the basics!

Creating a solid resume template with all of your basic information, skills, and education/work history can set you up for success in any role. You can send your resume to our Careers email or attach it to your application!
2. Research Arion Care
Arion Care has built a great website as a resource for caregiving applicants, families needing services, and current employees who want to learn more! Get to know us by visiting any of the tabs at the top of the screen or by reaching out to us directly. Researching the company while editing your resume and prior to the interview will help you familiarize yourself with our terminology, employment opportunities, and benefits. It will also likely spark some great questions that you can bring to the interview when you meet with your recruiter!
3. Sharpen Your Interview Skills
After completing your research on Arion Care, it’s time to set up your interview and practice your communication skills! It’s easy to get overwhelmed when entering an interview, so practice talking with a close friend or family member (or even chat with yourself in the mirror)! Tell them about yourself, your work history, what interested you about caregiving, and anything else that comes to mind.
Before you enter into your interview, you may be wondering what will be covered! Here are a few things you can expect when you join your Zoom or phone call:
- You will receive a review of Arion Care’s services and functions.
- Recruiters will review Arion Care’s departments, services, pay rates, and general job expectations with you. If you have a specific department or age group you’d like to work with, let your recruiter know and they can give you additional information on the department or point you in the right direction!
- You will be asked about your personal and professional experiences in caregiving.
- If you’re new to the field and only have experience caring for a loved one or someone not set up with an agency, don’t worry! Personal experience allows for a caregiver to build a close connection with their member and allows them to work and learn at their own pace, while professional experience allows for a caregiver to receive formal training and hands-on experience with industry-approved techniques. Both sets of experiences are valid and welcome at Arion! Be prepared to talk about your work history and how it relates to the position you’ve applied for.
- You will provide us with your desired schedule/availability.
- When we place a caregiver with a member, we take the caregiver’s schedule and availability into consideration. We not only want to provide the highest level of care for our families, but we understand that your life is full of unique needs and experiences. Depending on the schedule you can work, our recruiting department meets you where you are at and helps to find you a member that fits within your availability.
- You will get to know your recruiter and the company on a deeper level.
- An interview with Arion Care is a great time to ask all of the questions you’ve prepared from doing your research, or ones you’ve thought of while interviewing! There is never a bad time for a question when interviewing with one of our recruiters – they love to help applicants understand how Arion Care functions and what we can offer!
