Strength in Numbers

More people are beginning to understand the job search no longer means sending out a few resumes and waiting for the offers to come in. Times have changed and as a result, those looking for career advice are beginning understand the theory behind the “strength in numbers” approach. Job openings are scarce. It’s just the way things are in a contemporary and redefined economic landscape. A. Harrison Barnes, a leading career coach, says that while there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, we’re still in that proverbial tunnel. In a recent published column, he says a career is “…the path to mental and economic stability, happiness and purpose…” Even during a time when so much remains uncertain, moving forward is key to ensuring your career ultimately becomes what you have envisioned. Just as importantly, however, is defining a team that can help you meet your career goals and work to ensure your resume and your approach is as solid as possible.

One such method is Founded by A. Harrison Barnes, this unique site serves as more than just a job board; it’s where you can gather the latest news in employment trends, search for jobs other sites don’t have access to and gain insight from all the latest economic research – in one streamlined and effective site. While working from the perspective of a group of people whose sole purpose is to help you find the right job, takes that perspective a step further. Resume revisions, interview assistance and an approach that puts the job seeker as top priority, versus the employer as other sites focus on, sets this company poles apart from the competition. The latest job openings from every sector in the American workforce are included, career advice and all the help you need to find the right job are only a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy as a member of the EmploymentCrossing team.

Nearly 40% of all active job seekers, at any given time, fail to include important information that can make the difference in whether you’re extended an offer of employment. Too many times, we think it’s not important enough for inclusion, when in fact, it may be just what an employer is looking for. This is the very thing the EmploymentCrossing team is trained to recognize and include. When fifty or more people are applying for one coveted position, inclusion of your placement on your college debate team just might be the deciding factor for an employer.

Even better is the risk free trial new members are offered. Whether it’s government jobs, part time jobs or administrative jobs, if they’re available, they’re found on The one career site that includes no advertising, has received several awards and that touts more interviews and job offers than any other stands ready to become part of your “strength in numbers” approach.
