Job seeker Frustration

job seeker frustration special research report Photo by
Job Seeker’s frustration with the application process was sited as the number one concern during an informal poll I conducted last week using multiple social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, and LinkedIn.  The response was overwhelming with well over 50 comments in the form of emails, direct messages, replies, and general comments.  Survey participants expressed concerns with the length of the job search process from the resume to job offer process particularly with the Talent Management Tracking Systems that most mid to large sized companies use to manage their job openings and applicant flow. ...

Why Job Seekers Are Frustrated and What They Can Do About It
There was an interesting blog post recently by a resume guru noting the frustration job seekers experience when faced with conflicting advice from resume experts. That frustration is easy to relate to because even we professionals don’t always agree on what’s correct. Every advice giver relies on his or her own experience (whatever that may be). And because of all the variables involved in hiring processes across the board, there is no one correct answer for most aspects of the job search including the construction of resumes. But this explanation for job seeker frustration is missing the bigger picture. Job seekers ... market research, surveys and trends
Headhunters, Friend or Foe???
I am a Third Party Technical Recruiter who likes to feel that I am a friend of any job seeker who asks for my help to find them a new position, or responds to my postings at various job posting sites on the Internet.  However, in this rather difficult economy so many of us are going through, I believe a large percentage of job seekers see me and my compatriots as foes.  The main reason for much of the present friction between third party recruiters (headhunters) and job seekers is that every job opportunity is very important to the job seeker, and this creates a lot of anxiety and a desire to lash out at anyone who stands in the ... market research, surveys and trends

When Defection Is Defective
To the political party one defects from, he has committed a political sin of breach of trust, faithlessness and betrayal. But the defection could be a decoy to hoodwink the side one has just defected. As a ploy, this kind of defection is very difficult to detect. But the defector could run down his former party. This goes to show that not all defections are genuine. One could defect from his original political party to another and remain there. Some others could defect to secure relevance in the recipient and after the deed has been done, they move back to where they came. Some could defect from a certain idea or ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What are the most critical mistakes in resume-writing that YOU ...
For example, an accomplishments oriented resume does not work well in the aerospace and defense industry; what is needed is full working career reverse chronological with emphasis on who worked with, what project, what role. Length of resume is not an issue; truncated work history is considered as suspect - as if the candidate is hiding something and is treated as a "red-flag". Great engineering assumes innovative, technological breakthroughs, other wise we do not last in this line of work. Touting such accomplishments is counter productive. This niche resume mindset is ignored or glossed over by most resume classes and ...
