Job Seekers Nationwide Complain About Inability to Identify and Contact Employers in New and Growth Industries
"I need to get out of telecommunications and into an industry that is growing, where it's easier to find a job with potential. But I'm hard put to find companies like that to contact. How do you find them? Where do you start?" This is a common complaint of job seekers nationwide, contends ITS in Denver.
Thousands of job seekers visit our websites each month, many of them to take advantage of the free services they can get there, including a free resume analysis and a comparison of how they stack up to their competition in more than 200 different characteristics. In the course of helping them, ITS routinely asks them what their biggest complaints are about job seeking in general.
"People in many industries today feel a strong need to take the initiative and start making inquiries in some of the more promising industry segments that have created the bulk of the good new jobs in recent years," observed Gordon Rubinstein, Vice President of ITS in Denver. "Not only do they have no idea how to go about identifying these firms. They also don't know how to point out the similarities to their existing industry, in order to give themselves credibility," he added.
"We've had databases available for years that make it easy to identify these companies. More important, three years ago we advanced the state-of-the-art with our Industry Characteristics Profile. It spells out in detail where your industry is similar to dozens of others. With it, you can build immediate credibility in any new industry."
ITS services address all of these issues for clients we serve.
