Just when I thought there were no ideas in the online career advice space, someone surprises me, and that’s what happened when I read Christine Apold’s e-mail last week.
Christine wrote to let me know about Evisors.com, an online marketplace for expertise that connects people with qualified and knowledgeable experts in their fields.
Evisor.com’s growing collection of 500 real world experts can tell job seekers first-hand what it’s like to work at 475+ companies across a range of industries and functions. Says Christine: “Today, when someone embarks on the job search, they scour their personal and professional networks for advice and help preparing for applications and interviews. However, if that expertise does not lie directly in their network or they are not comfortable seeking advice from friends and family for any reason, job seekers can quickly start feeling like they are wandering in the dark.”
The Evisors provide the inside scoop on a wide variety of topics within an industry or company including firm organization and culture, how make a smooth transition, what the firm really looks for in an interview and ways to make your application stand out. Many of the experts were former interviewers as well as employees at these firms so their practice interviews and resume reviews are truly representative of what you will face in the interview. It’s like knowing somebody in every company you apply for.
Whether you’re looking for a new job or hoping to expand your network, I hope you will check this out. Once again, a resource I wish I’d had ten years ago!
