Don’t Be a Jellyfish! Take Control of Your Career 1024 536 C-Suite Network

Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV,  is announcing a new episode featuring Bill Humbert, author of Employee 5.0: Secrets to a Successful Job Search in the New World Order.

Humbert relies on his extensive background in sales and recruiting to write this book, where he uncovers the parallels between the sales process and the job search process. He chose “Employee 5.0” as the title to ‘get in front of the pack.’ He says that the problem most employees have is that they treat their careers just like jellyfish – “floating in the currents of their current company.” Basically, they adopt the “whatever happens, happens” attitude and that leads to them being laid off eventually. Employee 5.0 is the person that takes charge of their career, they’re not floating around, and strive to get to the next step.

Humbert was a recruiter for 39 years and a career transition coach for 25 years – and during that time, he’s seen his fair share of ‘floaters.’ He wrote the book to provide a more in-depth perspective of why we need to stop floating and take the reins of our careers.

Long gone are the days where HR professionals sifted through thousands of pages of resumes. In this ‘new world order,’ HR departments use AI to screen candidates. However, the problem for applicants is that the resume doesn’t contain the same words that are used in the often poorly written job description; therefore, they never get chosen based on an algorithm.

After having read more than 400,000 resumes, Humbert says the difference between him and AI is that he can read between the lines and scope out candidates that the technology might skip. He cautions job seekers about a common mistake he often finds in resumes. Humbert emphasizes writing your responsibilities in paragraph format, then list your accomplishments in bullet points because they’ll stand out instead of being buried in a “sea of bullet points.

All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.

Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.

“With so many people out there looking for a job and feeling the economic pinch, this episode provides great insider knowledge of what recruiters are looking for in a potential candidate and what mistakes to avoid,” Hayzlett said. “Bill’s book is the perfect solution for someone looking to make a change in their career and those looking for answers to take them to the next level and finally land that job.”
