Hi, I’m Jack

Hired Guru is now Bagsy!

We’re excited to transition from HiredGuru.org over to Bagsy.org. The thought is: new branding, better content, more awesomeness, and no more sarcasm. (*)

Jack of Bagsy.org

My career was as a corporate recruiter and have seen everything from a job seeker perspective. I hated not being able to take candidates aside, 1 on 1 and say, “this is why you didn’t get the job.” I wish I could share interview tips with them or some how make a difference in their interview skills.

​The blog is intended to serve as informational. Rather thank showing examples of resumes or free resume templates, I thought it might be better to write about macro topics that candidates face when searching for a new job.​The perfect resume won’t help you nail the interview. The perfect interview doesn’t mean your resume will get looked at by the right person. All of these things working in tandem are what’s needed to successfully find a job you love.

How to, this blog:

  • Prepare for your next interview
  • Check your options for finding a new job
  • Keep up to date on resume and career best practices (most readers)

The truth for most readers is they find themselves somewhere in the middle of a job search. They aren’t actively looking for something new but if a better job was available or a method to get an interview setup, it would be a different story. Common mistakes for those who are open to exploring new things is not taking action with valuable networking opportunities. We’ll talk about ways to set this up without putting your current job in jeopardy.
