Don’t be invisible on the job market.
Don’t be invisible on the job market.

In 2009, the Wall Street Journal noted that job seekers took longer to find work than since the Department of Labor began tracking in 1948.  Now in 2013, the average job search takes 38 weeks or 60% longer.  According to the Department of Labor there are over 3.9 million open jobs nationally.  Why are so few jobs being matched to workers, if there are a record high number of open jobs? 
 
 “98% of job seekers are eliminated at the initial resume screening and only the “Top 2%” of candidates make it to the interview”, stated Robert Meier, President of Job Market Experts.  “Fixing the employment market requires helping job seekers become “Top 2% Candidates” who can meet employer’s rigorous requirements and easily hit the “bulls-eye” of employer needs to ensure they don’t make bad hires” continued Meier.
 
Job Market Experts has developed “FasTrack” career technology for educational institutions, individuals and local community workforce boards to reduce unemployment from the current average of 38 weeks to 6-12 weeks.  The key to program success - teaching every type of job seeker how to be a “Top Candidate” in their field using multiple new automated career tools and implementing a scaled grading system to help employers find top caliber candidates for their openings quickly.  The techniques that Meier uses are based on 20 years of evidence based statistics on helping job seekers shorten their job searches and helping employers find the best talent quickly.
