Technology And It’s Affect On The Job Search

Well, I have to say that I have been on somewhat of a vacation since getting my hours reduced.But it hasn’t been a vacation of some sorts because I have been looking for some jobs and passing out resumes. Speaking of  job search, a lot has changed over the years and we have to thank technology for that while at the same time think twice about its effect on us as humans. While it has made it easier for most people by sending out resumes to most companies in some cases it has been a problem because of the lack of contact. What I mean is technology has made it impossible for people to meet face to face in which the employee that’s going to be working for a certain company cannot really meet the person who is has received your resume and cover letter.

The face to face meetings has somewhat disappeared when it comes to these job searches in which you are able to at least say hi and to basically see the person you will likely work with. Also see the whole company itself and getting to know its corporate culture and how it operates. With technology such as e-mail, I phone and other tech gadgets in the office there has been somewhat of a disconnect with humans when it comes to these tools. Like where is the process of going on foot when it comes to passing out resumes to companies? Now I know that people eventually take this traditional route when it comes to looking for a job but most companies don’t want candidates to do that anymore which is somewhat strange because how do people meet when it comes to jobs?Let along advancing careers?

But I guess now that companies want us to pass out our resumes on the computer by e-mail since it is faster method for them in reading it and making their assessment as to whether or not the candidate would be a perfect fit for their company. The same is in dating which calls for another entry.But this has to do with job searches. I am not saying that e-mail is a bad thing because there are times when most people are not able to pass out their resumes live in person due to time constraints.But I am saying that there should be a balance of both in which people not only apply for jobs online but to actually go to places and give out their resumes to employers that control the businesses.
