SHRM@QU

SHRM@QU is a local student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. We provide students from across the University with the opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into the effective management of human capital in the field of Human Resource Management through affiliation with the New Haven Chapter, the CT State Council, and the national SHRM organization.

The objectives of this chapter include:

*Promoting the exchange of work-related experience of established business professionals with the theoretical academic perspectives of student and faculty members through open forums and information exchanges.

*Encouraging the acquisition, growth, and continuation of our respective careers in human resource management through expanded knowledge, camaraderie, respect, and mutual support among chapter members and through our affiliation with SHRM and our sponsoring chapter.

*Provide a pool of human resource management leaders for perpetuation of the chapter and of SHRM.

*Function as an important vehicle for promoting the field of human resource management to students.

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 SHRM@QU hosted a presentation by Henning Seip, President and Co-Founder of SkillPROOF, Inc. Mr. Seip showed students his innovative job search website KRAZOOM, which takes the guesswork out of applying for internships and jobs (in all industries across the country). The KRAZOOM website is a database of over 1 million job opening. KRAZOOM allows job seekers to select requirements that match their skill set, instead of the typical guesswork of using skill keywords to find job postings. Not only does his website save valuable time, it also helps you tailor your resume to specific job postings and provides feedback to users on what skills you should develop (i.e., your skills gap). He wants job seekers to avoid what he calls the, “black hole of job applications.”Featured image

Key Takeaways:

  • Employers get flooded with resumes, many of which are not qualified for the position.
  • All resumes have different formatting and organization, which is problematic when companies use computers to sort resumes.
  • Using keyword searches is a guessing game and often means employers miss qualified candidates, and that candidates miss jobs that they would be qualified for.
  •  KRAZOOM can help you with the tedious task of customizing your resume for each job by pointing out key skills you match.
  • Your skills should be highlighted at the top of your resume, then described further in context below. Stick to only what is relevant for that particular job!
  • Remember, employers are looking for a reason to discard your resume, not keep it. Don’t give them a reason to say no 🙂
