With the rise in unemployment, competition for jobs has grown more intense.
So too has the need for selectivity in choosing among the flood of resumes entering the marketplace.
Like the weather, everyone has an opinion on what makes an effective winnowing process.
MEP Jobs, a job board for the HVAC, electrical, and plumbing industries, has released a new white paper, "Finding the Perfect Resume: How to Supercharge Your Search." The study paper shows recruiters and hiring managers how to get the most out of their job board and resume search tools.
"In tough economic times, hiring managers and recruiters can be deluged with resumes,", said John von Harz, president of MEP Jobs. "Our paper shows how to use online search tools included with most job board services to narrow the candidate pool and find exactly the people you need."
