When it comes to the job search process, there is a lot of frustration, to put it mildly. But perhaps one of the greatest sources of frustration has to do with the resume itself. People seem to have all sorts of opinions about them, from what they should look like to how long they should be to whether they are even necessary is today’s market. And the plethora of advice out there often seems contradictory at best.
A lot of the problem begins with (1) lack of understanding of current job market, (2) lack of understanding of current job market in specific industry, and (3) inability to write for target audience. On top of that, how a candidate plans to use the resume is another big factor.
It’s why at both ITtechExec and NoddlePlace we have put together our prospectus that not only outlines our approach but also details how we stay on top of the market so that we can advise our members properly without all the frustration. We’ve also worked hard to build in job search solutions that allow us not just to create another resume but to use it to build momentum in the job search process.
