Millions of job hunters and employers are frustrated. Why aren’t they working together more effectively? Because employers have changed the job-search playing field and too many candidates are using yesterday’s strategies. Do you want the key to the best jobs with the best employers? It’s time to play offence instead of defence.

Competency-Based Resumes shows today’s job candidates a new, more targeted way to write resumes to get them back on the same playing field with the best employers and improve their odds of winning the job they want. The system an employer uses when filling jobs has changed significantly in the past few years, and it is still evolving. Rather than simply looking at an applicant’s past jobs, companies are instead looking at the candidate’s experiences in certain key areas — including measurable work habits and the personal skills, known as competencies, used to achieve objectives at work. Competency-Based Resumes offers you a new and effective way to create resumes that emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and abilities that you have and employers need.

Join our ESI TALKSHOW® where the attendees will discuss all the related aspects of modern leadership, strategic management, and global human resources management for successful transformation and growth within the new normal era. The topics will cover the emergence of agile organizations and the latest perspectives on the mind-sets and practices you need to lead an agile transformation successfully, how you can create a competency-based resume that:

  • Confirm to the employer that you have the expertise or competencies, they are looking for.
  • Improve your chances of being selected for interviews for the position you want.
  • Help you to be perceived as being more competitive.
  • Enable you to explain sticky areas in your background in a more positive way.
