Do you want the key to the best jobs with the best employers? It's time to play offense instead of defense. Competency - Based Resumes shows today's job candidates a new, more targeted way to write resumes to get them back on the same playing field with the best employers and improve their odds of winning the job they want. The system an employer uses when filling jobs has changed significantly in the past few years, and it is still evolving. Rather than simply looking at an applicant's past jobs, companies are instead looking at candidate's experiences in certain key areas - including measurable work habits and the personal skills, known as competencies, used to achieve objectives at work. Competency - Based Resumes offers you a new and effective way to create resumes that emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and abilities that you have and employers need. Many sophisticated U.S. and international organizations are using competency - based systems to recruit, interview, select, and promote. Corporations such as American Express, Coca - Cola, Sears, and MetLife are all looking for specific competencies.
