Career strategist and coach Thei Zervaki says job seekers should ditch their resumes and find innovative approaches to making a career change. At http://www.ditchyouresume.com, job seekers can find free assessment tools, a library page for good book ideas, ecourses and ezines to jumpstart a job search.

The new ditchyouresume.com site was launched today offering an online community to help individuals and professionals who no longer want to use their resume to get jobs. Based on statistics and research, Thei Zervaki, 36, career strategist and coach, founded ditchyouresume.com to help job seekers break their reliance on resumes to win jobs.

Statistics show that only one job offer is made for every 1,400 resumes that are sent out in the USA. The average time spent on a resume is 30 seconds while 1% of resumes get a thorough read. And some recruiters skim-read every tenth resume they receive.

“How many chances do you have to actually get a job?” asks Zervaki. “I noticed that people take classes and have numerous activities and hobbies not from genuine interest but because they look nice on their resume. It’s depressing if you think about it.”

The site is fun and functional. Visitors can get free membership and be eligible to add URLs and articles related to the Ditch your Resume™ idea. There are various categories of news articles and directory such as Idea Creators and Being Inspired.

However, “the site won’t accept articles or news on how to write, edit or prepare resumes. That is not what we are about -- there are plenty of those around,” says Zervaki. Visitors can find whatever they look for: free assessment tools, a library page for good book ideas, ecourses, quizzes and ezines. “It’s more like of a portal than just a website,” says Zervaki.

The “Ditch your resume" approach is a strategic career approach for professionals looking to change jobs, careers, or those who are confused and unsuccessful in their job hunting. This strategy uses the 5Ws method, helps them to build and sustain powerful networks and relationships and be more innovative in their job hunting.

The website was designed by Rtaz consulting services at http://www.rtaz.com.
