Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 16, 2013
Smashing Resumes challenges itself to assist 20 candidates to get a job within 90 days, as part of a contest called Project Get-a-Job, with no cost to the candidates.
To enter the contest, candidates have to write an appeal on a blog, and be endorsed by their friends by January 23rd. Smashing Resumes (http://www.smashingresumes.com) staff will then select the best appeals by January 25th, and the challenge will begin.
Through one-on-one coaching, resume editing, LinkedIn makeovers, elevator pitches, interview preparation, salary negotiation, and more, Smashing Staff will challenge themselves to help their candidates get a job by April 26th. To ensure follow through, all candidates are expected to keep a daily blog, and there will be daily interaction with Smashing Resumes’ Chief Job Strategist, Shariq Abdul Ghani, in addition to weekly virtual hangouts with all the candidates.
“This has never been done. It’s the first time in the history of job search, that a company has challenged itself to help its clients get a job within 90 days, and we’re doing it all at our expense, because it’s unproven,” said Sara Ali, Partner at Smashing Resumes.
With unemployment hovering around 7.8%, 59% of employees believe the job market, as a whole, will improve in 2013, according to Randstand.
“We’ve seen a sharp increase of orders by 28% across the board, since the first week of 2013, indicating renewed hope in finding a job this year,” Smashing Resumes Operations Director Danial Abbasi said. “With Project Get-a-Job we can provide inspiration and remind them that giving up is never an option.”
