ITCareerHero was founded in 2018 by Chris Misson after he became depressed at the state of the UK IT job market and the standard of applicants.
After having assessed over 20 CV’s , and interviewed 5 people, for a new role at his current employer he was dismayed, and dejected;
How can so many applicants still present themselves so badly!
- CV’s with terrible formatting and poorly worded content plagued with spelling mistakes and appalling grammar.
- CV’s that lack any real relevant content for the role they are applying apart from one or two keywords.
- Inability to explain or discuss technical concepts, projects, or skills mentioned within their CV during an interview.
- Lack of passion or desire for either the role they are applying for or the industry they work in
Having worked in IT for nearly 20 years, always involved in recruitment and professional development, enough was enough.
He had to do something, and that led to this, ITCareerHero.
