Helping Smart People Find Work Smarter
It’s no secret. The way employers recruit is dysfunctional. OppSecrets is all about helping you to function within the dysfunction.
There’s been a fair amount of media attention where employers claim there is a shortage of talent in America, and how scores of positions go unfilled.
There’s no shortage of anti-discrimination laws. However, proving and prevailing in a claim can be near impossible.
There are plenty of unfair and unethical methods for eliminating potential candidates from the hiring funnel.
Ageism is a prime example of a very real but difficult to prove.
“You’re overqualified,” is often code for you’re over the hill.
ATS or Automated Tracking Systems are electronic systems designed to eliminate you from the candidate pool. As much as 75% of applicant resumes are tossed before being seen by human eyes. And if you’re lucky, that resume you spent hours on, is reviewed by a person for about 7-10 seconds.
Any typos? You’re done. Do you have a difficult to pronounce or ethnic sounding name? That can get you rejected too.
OppSecrets is dedicated to helping jobseekers prevail in this increasingly competitive, employment landscape.
Even when unemployment numbers are low, scores of real people struggle to find real jobs which is why we’re here.
