Renotahoejobs.com Gives Job Seekers A Face

Results of the website’s Sample Survey are revealed

PRLog - Sep. 9, 2010 - SPARKS, Nev. -- Meet Mary. Mary is a 49-year old white female living in Reno, Nev. She graduated high school in 1979 and has well over ten years of experience in her current field. In the past three years, Mary has had two jobs; both of which she left on good terms. Mary checks RenoTahoeJobs.com daily for jobs as she is currently looking for work.

Mary is the face of who the majority of RenoTahoeJobs.com’s current job seekers look like. RenoTahoeJobs.com recently conducted a survey sampling 40 of their 66,000 registered job seekers to assess their current demographic and employment characteristics.

Based on the sample size results of this survey, RenoTahoeJobs.com identified a few distinct and interesting segments of the current Reno-Tahoe job seekers:
1.)   45% of RenoTahoeJobs.com’s job seekers are between 45-54 years old.
2.)   70% of those job seekers are female.
3.)   42.5% have more than 10 years of experience in their current field.
4.)   40% of job seekers check RenoTahoeJobs.com for jobs on a daily basis, followed by 35% who check the site weekly.

What do these statistics mean? While Baby Boomers like Mary have previously had good jobs and spent years in their current field, they have unfortunately not remained excluded from the effects of current economic conditions.

CEO and President of RenoTahoeJobs.com Eric Swanson offered a few tips for the “Marys” in the Reno-Tahoe area. “Individuals in this age category [45-54] might struggle emotionally with the fact that it may take a while to find a new job. The first thing they need to do is accept the fact that our economy is in a recession, and not having a job is not reflective of this groups’ experience or qualifications.”

Swanson said that job seekers should consider contacting a professional resume service. “Have someone else proofread your resume. It sounds like a no-brainer, but we see mistakes on resumes all the time,” Swanson reminds job seekers. “Get help updating your resume and highlight your years of experience.”

Job seekers should consider filing their resumes with temporary staffing agencies such as Reno Staffing by calling (775) 356-1137. Swanson also encourages job seekers to brush up on their computer skills which will assist them in their online job search. Truckee Meadows Community College offers Workforce Development and Continuing Education classes including computers/software. For more information, visit tmcc.edu/wdce or call (775) 829-9010. Finally, job seekers should get written references from colleagues, managers and even clients. These reference letters serve as testimonials to their qualifications.
