HOW LOCKDOWN WILL CHANGE THE CV IN THE FUTURE

Every applicant has a story; I still remember those days when I was searching for a job. I guess we’ve all been there, right? Candidates find a suitable job opportunity and submit their application form online. But times and situations have changed this.

Recruiters have started their initial step of screening candidates through an ATS that looks for specific keywords.

It’s Official: Apple Is Turning into IBM

According to Bloomberg, Apple plans to announce “subscription bundles” with its new line of iPhones slated to launch in October of this year. If true, it’s yet another sign that Apple is becoming the dullest of all tech businesses: a cash-cow-milking service provider.

The great American philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote that “every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” If he’d been a tech journalist he might have written: “Every great tech company begins as an innovator, becomes a de-facto standard, and eventually degenerates into a service provider.”

IBM, for example, was insanely innovative, becoming the first company to make digital computing practical outside of a laboratory.

If you mention employment background screening to the average layperson, they’ll probably think you’re talking about checking criminal history (or lack thereof). But proper employment screening has several touch points, including but not limited to: credit history, education or work history, personal references, social media, motor vehicle violations, and criminal records.

Why Conduct a Background Check?
