SECOND SATURDAY: Nov 10 – “Seriously, we need to meet…”


The Economy & Employment
·         Surveys indicate over the last 3 years companies expressed their concern about
        maintaining  their productivity as employees are “burned out” (@38%)
·         Surveys indicate employees (@40%) are looking to change employers once the
        economy improves

·         Some companies have built large cash stores waiting for better conditions to start spending

·         We are, as believed, starting to see an upturn in hiring

·         The Election may play a pivot point

·         Do you know for a fact that you are well positioned and ready to leverage an upturn?

What I Am Seeing and Hearing

1.       Recruiters continue to indicate  95-99% of applicant resumes are unqualified or junk

2.       Nearly every resume sent to me in the past 3 months needed help to be effective

3.       For the past 2 months we have discussed Resumes in Second Saturday while I know those
        who have problems elected not to get help
I am deeply concerned that many assume their resume meet the standards demanded today because they have not attended any Group meeting that discusses Resume construction.

As a general rule if you have not had an interview in the past 3 to 4 months you may have a resume problem that is causing you to be rejected.  Everyone "must bring on your ‘A’ game” today and your resume is a critical part of that game.

Join me and we will walk through the resume and share some that have problems.  Personal information has been changed on the resumes I have to show.  Three hours may be the best investment of your time to get you back to work.
