How to Bridge the Gap Between Resume and Interview w/Christian Burney

In a world of AI-generated resumes, the chasm between the candidate resume and final client interview has never been wider. 

Technology can minimize and even obscure the reality of a candidate. It can make it hard for them to shine through or it can overlook the need for that face-to-face interview prep. 

Sometimes how a candidate presents themselves needs perfecting, but if you’re just focused on the resume, you miss out on a huge opportunity. The last thing a recruiter wants is for the candidate to go straight into an interview without ironing out those kinks. 

The solution to this problem is….technology surprisingly. It can close gaps and improve the process significantly.

In this episode, Managing Partner at Magee Resource Group, Christian Burney talks about his business, and all the things they’re doing to solve the challenges of recruiting in a tech-driven world.
