During the COVID-19 pandemic, I, like many others, faced the harsh reality of being made redundant despite my years of experience in the highly sought-after ICT field. However, I know that with the right mindset and determination, I can overcome this setback and achieve even greater success in the future. While pursuing gainful employment, I faced a puzzling obstacle - my CV seemed to disappear into a void with each submission. The Application Tracking System (ATS) was the culprit, as it eliminated a remarkable 80% of job applications due to its rigorous configuration settings. However, I decided not to allow this temporary obstacle to shape my destiny. With ample time at my disposal, I immersed myself in thorough research. It has been discovered that many individuals have shared similar experiences. Numerous individuals within my industry circle and professional network faced a common challenge. Did you know that over 180 Applicant Tracking Systems are in use today? And what's more, over 99% of Fortune 500 companies utilise these systems to manage their hiring process. In addition, they strategically promote their employment opportunities across several of the 7000-plus job boards. As I see it, the current recruitment landscape presents numerous challenges for businesses in Australia. One of the biggest challenges in recruitment is the time and effort it takes to sift through candidate pools. Unfortunately, this can lead to ATS systems mistakenly eliminating qualified candidates. In addition, many recruiters need help to locate the ideal candidates efficiently, despite utilising job boards and ATS.
In the year 2021, I took the necessary steps to validate the worthiness of my conclusion. I am proud to share that I have launched a remarkable initiative called 'Career Tweaks' that has helped more than 125 IT professionals secure job interviews with cutting-edge AI-driven systems. I am proud to share that I have assisted approximately 60% of individuals in securing significant employment opportunities at esteemed organisations such as Google, Microsoft, AWS, Accenture, Cisco, and others. By utilising my exceptional leadership coaching abilities, I cultivated a sense of purpose and job satisfaction among a dozen peers, improving employee retention rates.
