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, a young and hungry new 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.

Embrace and concur challenges in pursuit of success
I'm Ron and I started TekResume using my 7+ years of experience in Human Resources and the IT Staffing and Recruitment Industry with a mission to create the most effective, interview-winning, IT Resumes. When I graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing, 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 pursue the American dream of Entrepreneurship. My parents instilled the values of hard work, honesty, and integrity in my siblings and I at a very young age. By my senior year, I attempted to start 3 different businesses, each more promising than the other. None of them worked-out but I learned from every win and every failure. I decided after graduation to put a pause on entrepreneurship and learn more about business through a career in sales. After 7 years of IT Recruiting for two of the largest IT Staffing Firms in the World I decided to put the entrepreneurship hat back on when I saw the need for TekResume.
