With an online job market that requests resumes to be faxed or emailed into the office, the resume must speak for the employee. The resume is the first available mirror into what type of employee this person may be and what they can bring to the table.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
Employment website, YourEmployment.com, has announced that they will be focusing on resume building an upcoming content releases. This focus is to help current job seekers and individuals who are new to the job markets build resumes that will be noticed by employers. It is estimated that over 40% of college graduates do not have an updated resume or a resume showing their skill level to potential employers. It is also estimated that over 35% of individuals in the job market do not currently have an updated resume that shows their current qualifications or showcases the qualifications needed to land a job.
Site manager Jeff Giles recently discussed this focus on resume building and how the content management team will create content and produce content related to specific aspects of resume building. “The content team has and working tirelessly to focus on resume building for job seekers. In a recent poll we found that many of the individuals who are currently seeking employment have not updated the resume in several years, may not even have a resume or may have a resume that does not showcase their true talents for the job. Many college graduates have a resume that shows the offices they held or projects they were key members of, however, the resume does not focus at all on the skills they learned while in college and what they can bring to the job. We found that other job seekers may have resumes but those resumes have not been updated in years or not worded in such a way that employers can gauge the benefits of hiring the individual or what they can bring to the job force.”
Mr. Gilles also stated the the content management team will be focusing on various aspects of resume building. He stated that the content team will focus on the creation of the resume, sections of a resume, wording of your resume and how to word a resume so that potential employees grabbed the attention of potential employers during the interview and before the first question is even asked.
“With an online job market that requests resumes to be faxed or emailed into the office, the resume must speak for the employee. The resume is the first available mirror into what type of employee this person may be and what they can bring to the table. If the resume does not speak volumes and does not allow the employer to know what this potential employee can bring, then the resume will be set aside and so will the individual. We want to help individuals who need assistance create a resume that will land them the job and not just the interview.”
This is one of many focuses that the your employment website will be taking on over the course of the next few weeks and months. Mr. Gilles stated that for individuals who are seeking jobs, need to educate themselves on current job openings or need to update their resumes they should bookmark the YourEmployment.com sites and subscribe to regular blog posts for the site.
