Paul Hill, job search expert is thrilling new graduates as well as seasoned professionals at his eye opening job search boot camp sponsored by the HAPPEN Network. With the unemployment rate for new graduates estimated to be as high as 50% in the US, when you also take into consideration "under employed" new graduates, there is an urgent need for new graduates to learn more than just the traditional job search method of replying to online job postings. The high new graduate unemployment rate holds true in Canada also. According to John Ciampi, "Only 1% of total applicants get an interview." John is CEO of Preptel located in California and is an expert in digital resumes and online applications.
"That is a startling statistic when you realize only 1% are getting interviews not actually getting hired and yet most new graduates rely on this dismal "clicking and hoping" method and that just does not cut it in this economy" says Paul Hill, Job Search Boot Camp Leader and Chief Instructor at Transition to Hired. "Obviously there is a need to educate and show new graduates step by step how to land a job. New graduates are shown how to get away from hiding behind their resumes and how to get in front of decision makers in the flesh. This is why we created the job search boot camp to show new graduates and seasoned professionals not what to do but HOW to ACTUALLY DO IT."
"As a new graduate, the job search is a whole new animal. You come to realize how daunting and often fruitless the "electronic job hunt" really is, but that's all you know. It's a strange sensation to emerge from one of the most successful times of your life, feeling like you have so much to give, and yet finding yourself in a rut without the tools to get out. That's where Paul comes in; he introduces you to a whole new job search approach. It's directed, it's aggressive and most importantly it boasts a lot of promise. This is not about your resume; it's about what you want, what you have to offer and how to make that seen by those who can actually employ you. We highly recommend the job search boot camp to new graduates" said Katya Vlassov and Dasha Vlassov, two sharp Molecular Medicine graduates from Upsalla University who are seeking positions as an application scientist and sales scientist, respectively, and are also prepared to relocate for the right job.
Parents are also excited because they have invested so heavily in their childrens' schooling and yet are frustrated by the lack of progress in landing a job. Most parents understand that job search has changed over the last few years and many find themselves doing a job search at the same time as their children with the same dismal results to their own online "clicking and hoping."
"Its not the parents or the new grads fault" says Hill. "The problem is they both don't know what to do. Sure they have heard about networking but that only works if you know how to do it and most new grads have no real professional network. We cut through all the hype and get them to craft a professional message and then show them how to get in front of decision makers, how to deliver the message, and how to get decision makers excited about guiding or even offering them jobs. The secret is how we get new graduates to craft and deliver their message, with absolutely no gimmicks, so that it makes decision makers jump up and take notice.”
