Expand Your 30 Mile Radius for Job Searches!

 

For many job seekers, especially those actively seeking new employment, the number one reason they are looking for a new job: Money!

Are You The "6 Second" Hire?

 

 

 

There are many studies that are conducted about the behaviors of employers, hiring managers, and job seekers. One that stuck out was conducted by the Ladders employment website. They conducted an "eye-tracking" study that pinpoints 6 seconds as the average time hiring managers and recruiters spend looking at a resume to determine if they are a fit. Amazing, if you truly think about. It all comes done to a few basic elements.

In the process of the 6 second hire, it is not so much that you will be hired, it is about getting this person's attention for the next 60 seconds and 60 seconds after that. The NO will come in 6 seconds. I want you to think of this process as how the TV is worked in your home:
