  1. 1. Job Hunting in the 21st Century: Using Technology for Career Search Advantages An Applicant’s Ultimate Tool to Getting ‘Behind the Recruiters Wall’ for the Career Seeker’s Advantage in Job Searches
  2. 2. Who Am I? • I am Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D., with 22+ years of human resources, recruiting, and resume writing experience, of which half those years were in federal government contracting. • I have re-written over 10,000 resumes (8,000+ in two years!), and assisted 100s of job seekers get their resume before recruiters, headhunters, or hiring manager for serious consideration as a job candidate. • Transparency & Disclosure: My consulting company helps job seekers rewrite resumes for job searches. • If after watching the presentation(s), you don’t / can’t do it yourself, I can help you with your resume to get that new job. 21st Century Career & Job Search: D.

  3. 3. Before you spent thou$ands • This video is provided as an alternative to spending gobs of money you can’t afford for a career assistance company to rewrite your resume, provide mass-mailings of hard-copy resumes, and interview training and feedback, all to pay huge overhead for fancy offices in high-rises and office buildings. • The goal – rich, informative training to provide all you need for a job search – using the skills and knowledge you already have and will learn to use here, to find that ‘next great job’ – and at a lower cost to you! 21st Century Career & Job Search: D. Boyer Consulting, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 ©; www.DBoyerConsulting.com 3
  4. 4.

  5. 5. WARNING! • This presentation (and other training modules) is not packed with graphics – BUT you get the most amount of data possible in a short time period for impactful, valuable, educational, and useful information. • Because of lack of pretty pictures, it might be ‘boring’ to your eyes (e.g., painful to sit and ‘watch’), BUT it is ear candy for the amount of incredible, valuable, information • Sit back in a comfy chair – get your pen ready for notes. 21st Century Career & Job Search: D. Boyer Consulting, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 ©; www.DBoyerConsulting.com 5
  6. 6. Everyone Should Be An Amateur Job Seeker • If you are a professional job seeker, you are hopping from job-to-job, this waves a ‘red flag’ to employers • Though everyone should be an amateur job seeker, they should be professional in their career improvement activities and using professional methods and tools • A professional resume placed in multiple source locations increases the odds you can remain an amateur job seeker! (results = a new, long-term job – fast!) 21st Century Career & Job Search: D. Boyer Consulting, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 ©; www.DBoyerConsulting.com 6
