Thank You for Dropping By
(here i write in the 1st person)
Welcome to my 1-page RickGillis.com as the rest of this site is under construction due to the events I describe next.
In December of 2019 I self-published my 6th book, The Quotient. In March of 2020 I was offered a traditional publishing deal by Indigo River Publishing. I signed with Indigo River in April; pulled down my self-published “Quotient” book which is now being totally reworked and will be published in late Spring/Summer of 2021 under a new title–which I will share with you as soon as I get approval from my publisher. Till then here is:

As employee #1, Rick was involved in the incredible success of the first job board in the greater Houston, TX area in the Neolithically-early days of the Internet: ca. 1997. Over a period of ten years of calling on people who professionally hired others, Rick learned how job search really worked versus what he was hearing in all the various workshops he attended and was asked to speak at–which lead to his creating his own resume formats and process (See note in PS paragraph below.)
Being in the forefront of the online employment movement, Rick began speaking on search, promotion and advancement across the US, as well as on terrestrial radio and in online interviews in Australia, Panama, across the Caribbean, Canada, and the UK. Rick has been featured on NPR, PBS, Business Insider; in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Inc., the Houston Chronicle, CIO, Huffington Post, and more. Rick has also hosted radio and TV in Houston.
Rick has written four books on job search and a fifth book, PROMOTE, written for those professionals who aren’t yet comfortable promoting themselves on the job, is the little book that ‘begat’ The Quotient (soon to be renamed). In the “new book” Rick has taken on the pay disparity issue and is willing to say that he has “resolved the pay disparity issue.” It’s a big statement that he stands behind.
Click on the “J” button at the bottom of this page for access to my sample resume and other docs as well as my YouTube channel for snippets of training videos. And remember there are two people you are trying to impress when you submit your online application and resume: The recruiter, who has the power to deny your resume goes any further, and the hiring manager. Draft your resume with both ‘audiences’ in mind. Or just use my Blended Resume.
