An exciting billion dollar sector with bleeding-edge technology and amazing career opportunities.

 

Data Security is a billion dollar issue. There’s never a shortage of date breaches and compromises, hacks and mistakes in the news. As technology permeates every nook and cranny of our lives, and devices become further interconnected, and more and more data about every aspect of consumers is stockpiled, the risks of that data being exploited malevolently multiply.

Redfish Technology, Inc. (NYSE:RED), a leading nationwide recruiting company focused on the high tech sectors, announced today that it has opened an office in Costa Rica. This new focus marks Redfish’s second expansion into international territory.

 

The Costa Rican tech sector experienced a boom when Intel, Infosys and Hewlett Packard moved in. A lively high-tech cluster has evolved with the influx of smaller firms, and a very talented pool of highly educated talent has grown there. The Costa Rican government maintains a pro-U.S. stance and aims to attract high-tech corporations to take advantage of Central America’s most educated, computer literate and disciplined workforce; many Forbes 500 companies operate out of Costa Rica.

 

The synergies of Redfish’s tech talent matchmaking and a growing tech sector in Costa Rica were the subject of discussion between Rob Reeves, CEO of Redfish Technology and Luis Guillermo Solís, who will be sworn in as president on May 8th. Mr. Solís has promised an international campaign to promote Costa Rica as an investment destination, highlighting its political stability and flourishing tech sector. Read more »

Six Recent Resume Mistakes

Stumble, Bobble, Snafu, Fumble, Clanger, Howler

On an average day, I read about 100-200 resumes. Some are amazing, most are adequate, and some go down in flames. When you make mistakes on your resume, you are seriously inhibiting your career options. Here are some resume boo-boos I’ve seen recently – don’t make these!

 

  1. Stumble – Infographic resume!

 

If you are such a rock star designer that you figure your gorgeous infographic resume is all you need and you would never stoop to creating a rote, insipid text resume, well oops. Many companies use an ATS or CRM of some sort, and even if they don’t, their recruiter likely does. Infographic or other non-standard formats can’t be read by most ATS/CRMs and so your resume could get missed entirely in many searches. While the infographic may seal the deal, there’s no deal to speak of if you aren’t identified from the start. So have the mundane word document ready along with the extraordinary visual resume.
