JobLander App Works Hard to Help Job-Seekers Land Jobs(October 04, 2011)
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
Unemployment figures are so high employers are literally inundated with resumes. And with such a large candidate pool to choose from, only the "stand-out" applicants are getting consideration. JobLander, a new iPhone app, creates world-class resume infographics that quickly catch employers attention and differentiate candidates from the masses. Its a fact that most resumes look the same. A colorful infographic can be a very effective way to differentiate a candidate from the rest of the applicants.
JobLander personalized infographics are simple to create requiring no design skills. The app does most of the work and allows users to personalize their infographics with unique shapes and colors. A resume with a world-class infographic tells prospective employers that this candidate goes above and beyond the call of duty, communicates more effectively than most others, and is capable of applying creative solutions to solve problems.
As someone who has screened, interviewed and hired over a hundred employees in the past decade, I would estimate that 99% of applicants use a conventional resume. But every now and then a resume that's out-of-the-box will come across my desk, and that says to me that this person is unique and deserves consideration, states GP Miller of Sparkriver, the developer of JobLander.
Infographics are a very effective way to highlight a multifaceted professional background which may include a mix of positions held, various volunteer projects, community service, key milestones, new skill acquisition and continued education. JobLander infographics are a highly efficient way for employers to see the whole picture of a candidate quickly. In a world increasingly saturated with data and information, they are a potent way to tell your story, break through the clutter and persuade employers to hire you. Most people are visual learners, and an infographic on a resume help employers experience the information faster than if they have to interpret the information. stated Miller.
Typically, infographics are difficult to create because they combine data with creativity. This may explain why infographics have not been widely used for resumes. JobLander is the first app of its kind that makes it easy to create engaging infographics for resumes. The very fact that a candidate would create an infographic to highlight their resume makes a powerful statement about the kind of person they are. adds Miller.
JobLander isnt just for job-seekers. JobLander infographics can be a compelling tool for a small business owner to provide a bio or a summary of professional experience. A bio with a professional-grade infographic can serve as a way to land a piece of business, speaking gig or board position.
