I’ve worked in the human capital, recruiting industry for the more than 9 years and experienced first-hand a lot of the problems within the industry. I felt there had to be a better way to help everyone along the value chain – job hunters, recruiters and employers. MyResumeSpace.com is designed from the inside out to make the online recruiting process easier for everyone.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 5, 2006

MyResumeSpace.com breaks down the barriers surrounding the online employment/e-recruiting process by putting the human back into Human Resources – starting with the job hunters. MyResumeSpace.com helps job hunters get attention from employers by dynamically highlighting the most important information about their professional experience up front. Traditional resumes often bury achievements and best practices – making it difficult for employers to find the information they’re trying to match up. MyResumeSpace beta puts this information right up top where it’s easy to read. The profile is then broken down into key attributes, overall expertise and future goals followed by actual job experience. Job hunters can also add a short audio greeting to their profile. The finished product is colorful and interactive – making it easy for employers to see the important information they’re looking for and to connect with targeted candidates more efficiently.
“MyResumeSpace.com gives job hunters a helping hand by providing them the tools that captures their personality and tells a story of their professional career,” said Tod Browndorf, President and CEO of MyResumeSpace.com. “I’ve worked in the human capital, recruiting industry for the more than 9 years and experienced first-hand a lot of the problems within the industry. I felt there had to be a better way to help everyone along the value chain – job hunters, recruiters and employers. MyResumeSpace.com is designed from the inside out to make the online recruiting process easier for everyone.”
On the outside, MyResumeSpace.com turns the boring black and white resume into a full color, multi-media profile. The foundation of MyResumeSpace.com is built on the expertise of a team with 15 years of quality work in HR, recruiting and technology. MyResumeSpace.com solves the costly “needle-in-a-haystack” online recruiting process by introducing a “pay-on-demand” system that lets employers and recruiters post job ads for free, browse as many MyResumeSpace.com profiles as they want for free and only has them pay for the profiles they want to pursue. Using targeted search algorithms that are hooked back into the MyResumeSpace profiles, employers get more quality candidates up front and don’t have to pay thousands of dollars for thousands of resumes they don’t want. As a result, MyResumeSpace.com helps streamline recruiting costs and levels the playing field for companies of any size to find the job candidates they want in an increasingly tough talent market.
“MyResumeSpace.com fixes what has become a monster of a problem in the online recruiting industry by helping companies reduce costs, get more quality candidates quicker and share in the success,” said Browndorf. “Companies spend tens of thousands of dollars posting job ads on major online sites. However, 80% of the results from these sites are unsuitable for the job which drives the real costs per resume higher. In the end, it’s our goal to help companies save time and costs and to improve productivity.”
At the same time, MyResumeSpace.com provides incentives for everyone along the online employment/recruiting value chain with revenue sharing programs for affiliates (recruiters and companies) and loyalty programs for job hunters. Here’s how it works:
- Job hunter creates free MyResumeSpace.com profile
- Employers post job ad for free
- Employers pre-screen MyResumeSpace.com profile summaries for free
- Employer “clicks-and-buys” profile and contacts that candidate directly.
- Job hunter receives a portion of the click through revenue in the form of loyalty points – called “Hands-on.”
- Recruiter who referred the job hunter to MyResumeSpace.com also benefits by receiving a percentage of the click through revenue.
“We are passionate about putting the human back into human resources by addressing the major issues facing the online job search and e-recruiting market,” said Browndorf. “MyResumeSpace.com is a community-based solution that brings people together – whether it’s fellow job hunters or job hunters and employers. The job search is tough enough. MyResumeSpace.com not only makes it easier, but also gives industry partners an opportunity to share the revenue which promotes quality to the entire industry overall.”
