Hire People. Not Resumes.


Resumes have been used for hundreds of years and there’s no doubt they are a useful tool in the recruiting process.  But relying on resumes alone puts hiring companies at a disadvantage. To find a candidate that is truly the right fit for your company, moving beyond the resume is the single most important change recruiters need to make.

Think about it. How much can be learned about a candidate from one piece of paper and a few formal conversations? It’s a start, but it doesn’t take into account prospective hires' values and life experience - which could be just as important as their credentials. 

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • The biggest resume flaws & why we as an industry shouldn’t solely rely on them
  • Tactics that you can implement immediately to get your team thinking more about DEI and anti-bias recruiting methods
  • Proof that moving beyond the resume works
