Or in brief, the key points are:
The recruiting process is profoundly broken. Every aspect of the traditional recruiting system is badly designed and badly executed.
We force job-seekers to fill out endless forms on our bureaucratic, inhuman Applicant Tracking Systems. Can you imagine forcing customers to fill out form after form in order to buy from your company? You’d never dream of doing that!
Your company would go out of business in six weeks if you treated customers the shameful way you treat job-seekers.
The bad treatment starts when someone applies for a job. Anyone can tell how much your company values talent. All they have to do is look at the Careers section of your website and they’ll know everything they need to know.
As a job-seeker, you’re wasting your time and energy applying for jobs online. Most applications sent through automated recruiting sites don’t get a glance.
To get a good job these days you have to break the rules. You have to take your job search into your own hands!
Ask yourself “Who is my hiring manager?” His or her title, of course, is not ‘hiring manager’ — that’s just his or her relationship with you. Your hiring manager is the head of a department, like Finance or Inventory Control.
The recruiting system is broken, but if you need a job now, you can’t wait for employers to fix it — you have to act! You already know that filling out online job applications will get you nowhere.
You’ll get your hiring manager’s attention a different way – by speaking to him or her directly
