Careers First fills permanent, temporary-to-hire and temporary job openings for Northern New Mexico businesses and organizations. We also place local job seekers in permanent, temporary-to-hire and temporary positions.

Job Seekers

You may be tempted to search for a job on your own, but since 80% of job openings are never advertised, our extensive experience and contacts can give you access to opportunities other job seekers will never know about.

Our services for job seekers include one-on-one coaching on:

  • how to interview, follow up, and what to expect of the company
  • how to present yourself in the best light and sell your strengths.

Ask us every question you have. Our job is to take all the anxiety out of the process, so you can be your best.


We offer a way to skip the hours of sorting resumes, weeding out weak applicants, and managing interviews. Our fees are competitive, and our skills at matching job seekers with employers have been perfected over more than a decade into a blend of science and gut instinct that leaves almost nothing to chance. We will find your perfect employee.

We begin by learning about your business, your goals and your immediate needs. We won’t just take the job description and start sending you candidates – we want to get to know you as a business partner. Your success is our success.
