By now, it’s obvious that the job market has changed in significant ways. This was beginning to happen even before Covid, but the circumstances of the past year have cemented those changes.

One of the most significant aspects of this is the use of technology in the hiring process.

Pre-pandemic, statistics show that 75% of resumes were never reviewed by an actual human; now, this number may be even higher. It is becoming clear that networking, both online and in person, is a necessary part of advancing in your career and obtaining the roles you’ll love.

In this week’s episode, Jonathan and executive search professional Dawn Dzurilla discuss strategies and tips to help you stand out in your career transition! Listen in for tips on:

  • Anticipating and navigating the hurdles presented by ATS systems, AI technology, and other electronic vetting systems
  • Ways to truly add value in your networking relationships that will allow you to rise above the crowd
  • How to position yourself as the best candidate for the leadership position you want
  • and much more!
