You’re Hired – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

If you’re looking for a job, one of the most tedious aspects of the search is constantly refining your resume so it looks appealing to your prospective employer.

If you’re an employer, one of the most time-wasting aspects of searching for the right person is meeting prospective employees and finding out they’re not quite as impressive as their resume.

The Acrew method of applying for a job does away with the resume. And the first  face-to-face interview.

Yes, it’s pretty radical. But like Like many revolutionary ideas, it’s so simple you wonder why someone didn’t think of it years ago.
