Hiring Horrors with a Happy Ending

in Ready, Aim, NewHire

This Halloween, make it a goal to see the resume for what it is: a zombie, a monster, a ghoul, and a ghost left over from the Industrial Revolution. We are now in the Information Age and the resume is outdated. Let’s put up a grave stone, “RIP. Here lays the resume, a nightmare for employer and job seeker alike.”

Why? They pile up like bodies and swamp inboxes worldwide. They lie to get their way. And worst of all, they can highlight irrelevant experience while hiding the stuff you really care about.

Few things are more terrifying for even the most experienced HR executive than a group of resumes. Who among us doesn’t dread their stench and their time-stealing ways?

Perhaps this is one horror story with a happy ending though.

The NewHire suite of software and service offerings is a stake in the heart of the resume vampire. Our HR Heroes have customized tools in the NewHire pre-employment application which instantly identifies the qualified candidates from the pack. Our clients access their candidates’ answers anywhere they have Internet access.Best of all, they can implement a fair and consistent screening process to identify the Best Available Talent while putting the resume zombie on ice – storing it away in case you ever need to access it in its original form.

So let the doom and gloom of the global financial talk end with Halloween.Sure, corporate layoffs are on the rise and hiring freezes are rampant, but thousands of companies are doing just fine, thank you. And the smartest companies have realized there’s no better time to identify and hire top talent than when the competition is struggling and the workforce is flooded with qualified people.
