Why I Hate and Love Resumes

Every hiring manager and recruiter measures themselves on how well they can tell the future. They have to, because that's what judging a person based on their resume really is. When we talk about resumes, be it applicant or employer, we talk about it like it’s your permanent record, the complete and total summation of your career thus far.

Best of both Worlds - a written interactive video application

I have developed a product that gives and employer an ordinary Resume but if they want they can click on a skill, qualification or anything within the resume to see, hear and have demonstrated that component of the person's CV.

Happy for you to critique…

If recruitment was invented today this is how it would work.

We’ve been doing some recruiting recently and let’s not mince words: it’s a gigantic pain in the backside.

So it got me thinking……’we’re hiring a web developer, in a perfect world, how would I like it to happen’ and this is what I came up…

How To Market Your Skills To A Recruiter

Days, weeks, and possibly months go by without as much as a few nibbles. You gradually start lowering your expectations, expanding your radius and even widening your specific industry targets.
