PUBLISHED ON MEDIUM Let’s face it, technology has rapidly changed the way we do business — and markets, themselves, are shifting in a major way. We’re seeing steady progression across an entire industry and are taking on higher-paying opportunities in sectors that we never thought we would be. Managers are entering into new markets, as the realm of technology continues to evolve before our very eyes. We demand innovation and watch it transform on a daily basis. Technologies broaden, but the markets haven’t been nearly as kind. Most agencies are understaffed and roles unfulfilled. We’re seeing those with no formal education compete against MIT graduates. Project managers are stepping up, some of whom have never spent a single day behind the scenes. We’re seeing interns become directors and start-ups popping up all over the country. More people are working remotely, and central offices are no longer commonplace. The workforce has become global, and we have begun to control our teams at a distance. We have more power than we ever did, and the possibilities are now endless. With more opportunities in our hands, all it takes is a little bit of ambition and a simple roadmap to get you where […]

Whether you’re looking for a career change, or not… whether the markets are stable… and whether you’re secure in your most current position… or not… Every CEO needs to have an updated resume — at all times! Let’s face it, it takes time to craft a quality resume. Most people don’t include the most important content (In fact, 80 to 90% of today’s top candidates are overlooked due to the lack of it). We forget about our achievements. We often face writer’s block. We leave off key qualitative and quantitative data. And, we forget to […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED ON RESUME.ACADEMY’S OFFICIAL BLOG In a recent press release by the world’s favorite remote jobsearch site, FlexJobs identified “14 of the Most Common Remote Jobs” and the average annual pay per position. This list was based on data gathered from within an ever-growing database of work-at-home positions and key factors were highlighted for each of those positions. Additional data was gathered at PayScale.com, and annual salary data was determined in relation to those factors. The bottom line is this. As millennials continue to take the workforce by storm, a preference for out-of-office experiences has become the norm. As opposed to sitting behind a wooden desk in a stuffy office environment, many companies are finding value in providing the younger, more vibrant demographic with a more satisfying work-life balance. Contrary to reports that these professionals are being underpaid, as in contrast to previous generation s , these numbers show that some companies still value their workforce and aren’t against compensating them accordingly. According to the FlexJobs’ 7th annual survey on remote candidacy, 97% of all applicants said that “a job with flexibility would have either a huge improvement or a more positive impact on their overall quality of life.” […]
