"Sun has announced the need to reduce overall spending in its fiscal year 2009, including a reduction in headcount."

So You Want Someone To Actually Read Your Resume?

Resume Tee Back

There are more and more people looking for new jobs and many of those people need help with their resumes. If you're reading this you are probably a recruiter. I wrote the following article in 2004 and the content is equally valid today. I've found it helpful to share it with candidates. I ask them to read the article, update their resume as they see fit, and to send the revised resume to me for review. Perhaps doing the same will be helpful to you too?

And now, the…

10 Recruiting trends for 2009

As the world economies seems to be collapsing around us what will be the best practices in recruiting for 2009? Will video resumes be the killer app? Will niche job boards take over from the big boards? Will social media be the killer app?

Nope, none of these alone will get you the best candidates. Sorry.

If the economies do completely collapse there are a couple of outcomes; unemployment will rise as companies go under and people in secure jobs will be less likely to want… Continue

Technology sheet-use in job interview to get that medical sales job!

Sometimes candidates with degrees in the sciences find that they have a lot more information that the employer might want to know about them that just won’t fit in the traditional resume format. To combat that issue and give yourself an interview edge, consider building a “Technology Sheet” - this is a one-page, column-formated accounting of all of the technologies that you are familiar with…some candidates actually rate their expertise with each (1 to 10).

It not always necessary to… Continue
