LOS ANGELES, Calif — January 15, 2012 –
It makes no difference whether the economy is "rapid growth",
"slow growth" or "empirically distressed", a well-written resume is essential in
making a strong first impression on any employer. CareerPlex, America’s
first commercial career center resource, helps serious
job-hunters compose that perfect resume by bringing old, outmoded
resume conventions up-to-date.
The first convention that CareerPlex's Management Team likes to explode is the notion that a resume should
always be kept to one page.
"It doesn't make sense for an employer searching for personnel to
spend thousands of dollars in advertising costs, agency fees, staff
interview time, career expo travel and the like, only to receive a
resume that's so brief and full of generalized information, that
reading it is a waste of time," says CareerPlex's founder's
Bruce Wittkin and Elizabeth Stone, "Employers need details
to confirm that their interview judgments are well-informed."
Ninety percent of the more than 6,000 resumes written to date using
the CareerPlex Resume-Write™ Language Concatenation Database have been "functional"
resumes that bristle with data about the job applicant's skills and
capabilities. From embalmers to professional hockey players, from
sales representatives to data-entry clerks, from electromechanical
engineers to housewives re-entering the job market, CareerPlex’s
advanced technology approach uses facts, scope and details to build credibility
in a most unconventional way.
"Highlighting the applicant's strengths" is the primary goal of a
CareerPlex resume. Preparing a focused, objective presentation
will get you the interview," says Wittkin, CareerPlex's
President and CEO. "The job-hunter then has to
take it from there."
Wittkin, who has spent thirteen years developing highly innovative
technology, shaping and building CareerPlex
for major entry into the American economy later this year, conducts
an in-depth interview with job applicants before using the Company’s
unique software to add proprietary Smart Employment Coding™ into the
design and function of the resume
and multidimensional database in which it resides. A typical "senior-level” document can run up to three pages
in certain instances, with entry-level resumes and mid-career
resumes running one to two pages, respectively.
An unusually innovative former market approach innovator and business development specialist turned
entrepreneur, Wittkin sees a person's career as an Aristotelian
structure, with a definite beginning, middle and end. "What a person
did early in his career can be very relevant to what he or she is in
the process of becoming today." In his role as a resume writer
composing one of CareerPlex’s key, multimillion dollar assets, Wittkin
created Resume Write™ Language Concatenation Software database so that it may be used to
structure, condense and form an individual’s career into a highly
objective, properly focused report. “Not only does this thoughtful
and articulate form of presentation help the employer by giving them
more of what they need to know," adds Elizabeth Stone, "but the succinct value of the job
candidate’s document differentiates it from the crowd in many
ways—and this seems to produce interviews about 33% to 66% more of the
time," she is quick to add.
CareerPlex’s new resume style has been received with "extremely
positive" reactions from both job applicants and prospective
employers. Word-of-mouth has brought an unusual number of referrals
from employment agencies, local business, aerospace firms and
Fortune 500 companies, not to mention an ever-growing list of very
positive reviews on the Internet.
"With the 'established' resume-writing world still back in the
50's," says Elizabeth Stone, "CareerPlex has seen an opportunity to realign
things by designing resumes for today’s savvy social media connected marketplace instead of
still doing them the way they were done fifty years ago."
