Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.
There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

Dear Friend

Image Builder: Corporate Recruiter’s only choice

Were you thrilled – and a bit intrigued – when you converted your plain text email resume to

Image Builder

On World-Wide-Jobs  ?

Intrigued by your functional Exposure profile ?

Of course, you have guessed right.

While constructing your profile, our Artificial Intelligence (AI) software mimic-ed the brain of a HR Manager, as he would come across various keywords in your resume and the context in which these keywords  were used.

But why guess ?

You can prove this.

Update your text resume with some more “Keywords” which reflect your  SKILLS / KNOWLEDGE / EXPERTISE much more comprehensively.

Then come back and repost your updated resume on World-Wide-Jobs  and click “Convert To Image Builder”.

Voila  !

A brand new profile with a different “Raw Score” and a higher “Percentile” !

But that is not the reason I write to you today.

While going through hundreds of Image Builders, I found that,

Ø    Some fields/values are incorrect or missing ( especially in the “Experience” section ) eg : Left ( m/y_________ / salary etc.

Ø    Monthly Salaries are mentioned ( instead of Annual )

Ø    Only 2/3 recent jobs are mentioned ( instead of covering entire career starting with current/last job and going backward to the very first job). This means total exp. ( years) does not add-up to the actual figure.

Ø    Job durations are not listed in proper ( reverse) chronological sequence.

This could cause serious mis-representation when “salary-graph” gets plotted.

Ø    “Name of Employer” is mentioned “Private”

I strongly urge that you revisit WWJ and thoroughly edit and validate – your ImageBuilder, as soon as possible.

Please remember that, when you click  “Apply Online” against any job-alert,  not only your text resume but your ImageBuilder too, gets emailed to the prospective employer. For a simple reason.

HR Manager don’t want to see a plain text resume anymore !

An ImageBuilder enables HR Manager to quickly figure out,

Ø    Your Core Competence     ( Profile Related Keywords )
Ø    Your Professional Standing( Percentile Score )
Ø    Your Salary growth through your entire career.

It is up to you to ensure that your ImageBuilder doest not become your ImageSpoiler !

With regards
