Welcome to The Really Useful Job Search Company
For the most part job seekers are either entry-level or mature. (There is a certain point in your working life that you are somewhat "bullet proof" but we'll save that discussion for another day.) The entry-level job seeker generally does not know how to pitch themselves and most mature job seekers aren't much better. The entry-level job seeker has the problem all first-time job seekers have had since time began: they need the job to get the experience but they need the experience to get the job! Rick Gillis teaches new and recent college graduates how to overcome this problem.
On the other hand the mature job seeker has been doing their job--not thinking how they would best express their value to an employer in the event they were to seek new employment. But it is the ability to inventory and present this value that will land them their next position--and do it in such a way that they minimize age-discrimination inherent in mature job search. Rick Gillis is the master of preparing job seeker's of all ages to deal with the reality of highly competitive job search..
You're not looking for a job--you're looking for a phone call
One of Rick's jobs is to inform people that, due to the overwhelming number of online applications and resumes received daily by hiring managers, highly sophisticated software is required to handle the barrage of information. Job search is extremely competitive. But before you can compete for a position, you must first be noticed. If you don't know how to navigate the software that screens your resume there is good chance that you will not receive your due.
"Secure Your Career"
Rick has recently added "Secure Your Career" to his public speaking repertoire. This hour-long talk is based on his famous Accomplishments Worksheet. The core message of this presentation is grounded in Rick's belief that most job seekers don't truly know how to express their value. The same can often be said of the employed which can lead to poor morale and termination. Management also needs this information in order to "defend" themselves to lay off. Contact Rick to discuss his presenting "Secure Your Career" to your group or company.
Let's create a relationship
The times--they are a changin--as are economic & employment trends, global economies, job search methods and protocols. And then there are the ever shape-shifting technologies associated with job search--social media and software to be specific. Contact Rick Gillis to discuss an on-going working relationship with your professional group, company or job search organization.
