Hiring and Jobs. Best-fit Talent. Culture and Cost.

For any organization, hiring is a real pain. 
Likewise, candidates too feel clueless in the crowd (in huge piles of resumes) while seeking new work or a job.
There is a lot of mismatch in what organizations need… and what the candidates can do for the organization. This happens because the candidates do not share their stories that are contextually relevant to their potential employer… because they continue using a fancy-but-useless and ATS (Applicant Tracking System) ready resume.
Seth Godin questioned resumes in 2008 (see the TrackBack response in comments of the post). 
vhite is working on something that enables candidates write their stories (RIP resumes) so that organizations can pick best-fit candidates for their goals.
Organizations invest a lot to plan, write, and publish their case studies to share how they identify a problem, solve it, and how it benefits their customers. While seeking work, candidates too need to write success stories. 
Context is important. Why not to setup the context while seeking work? I am sure our story gives you some picture of what we are doing and why. 
Enjoy, and write to me your thoughts, if any. All ears. 
PS: I have worked with a few agencies for their hiring processes and this Medium post gives you a sniff of my hiring experience at vhite itself.
