Hi- I'm Jacky and I am TekResume's first customer
I was laid off from a large technology company and left the corporate world to start my own business. I had good years and bad ones and after 3 years of working for myself I figured it was time to start looking for jobs again. I looked and applied for near 2 years with no success. What I never realized after leaving the IT field was just how challenging it would be to get back to work. In 2 years I applied to over 100 jobs across the US and was only able to attain 2 initial interviews. The elephant in the room was the experience gap on my resume. I remember receiving a call from Ron, an IT Recruiter calling about a Java Developer position with a mid-size company in Florida. I cautioned him about the struggles I faced just to get a simple interview. Like no recruiter did before, he helped me revise my resume. The most important thing he did was to understand me, what my situation was, and what I was looking to accomplish for my career. His efforts to understand this and work with me accordingly is what I believe was the "secret sauce" behind how I got back into the IT field.

I'm Ron and I started TekResume using my 10+ years of experience in Talent Acquisition and the IT Staffing and Recruiting Industry with a mission to create the most effective, interview-winning IT Resumes. When I started college at Florida International University, I wasn't sure at the time what exactly I wanted to do. After realizing my junior year that Biology was not the major for me, I ultimately decided to learn more about business and graduated with a BBA in Marketing. My first job out of college was in Talent Acquisition which ultimately allowed me to find my true calling: Helping business and people find the right fit.
I have led Technology Recruiting and IT Talent Acquisition strategy across the US working with Tech Start-ups and Enterprise Corporations to find the best talent in their fields and industries. The most valuable thing I've learned over 10 years is how impactful a great resume can really be.
