Spotlight on Neal Green

20thOct. × ’10

No matter how much effort you are putting into your job search and tailoring your resume, if your information isn’t getting to the right people then it’s more than likely not going to be seen for consideration. Neal Green had been job searching for a month on his own before joining Climber Premier. Once he had built his profile, Neal wanted to start reaching out to hiring managers directly and making sure his information was being seen. “The Recruiter Directory was the most valuable tool for me,” noted Green. Climber’s Recruiter Directory allows jobseekers to search for specific companies or industries that they want to work for, then gives them the ability to email the hiring manager directly to avoid the Applicant Tracking System aka Resume Black hole.

Neal is a Professional Educator who was looking to continue to use his talents in higher education. After searching through the Recruiter Directory, he was able to find multiple contacts at schools and universities that fit what he was looking for. “I wanted a very specific niche,” said Neal, “and I was able to find it through Climber’s recruiter access.” Almost immediately after sending out his resume, Neal was contacted by the Dean at not one but two colleges! “I was contacted by the Dean of Education to teach courses. Without the Recruiter Directory access, I never would have been able to contact the real decision makers.” Within the week, Green was hired by two colleges within the Laureate Education network of universities and has already begun teaching courses in Early Childhood Education.

Though Neal was successful in finding work quickly by using Climber and the resources at his disposal, he understands that keeping his information available to recruiters could benefit him in the long run. “For now, I am keeping my account open because I am still interested in part-time opportunities, but your site allowed me to land a job with two organizations.” By keeping his account open, Neal will continue to be marketed to recruiters, both on and off the Climber platform, as well as have full access to the site’s resources. Candidates who get recruited usually earn about 15% more than those who just apply to a position. “I have had a wonderful experience with and would recommend it without hesitation to anyone looking for a job.”
