CTL Releases Annual Industry Whitepaper

The annual industry trends whitepaper is now available. This year's white paper explores key questions the career industry continues to pose in light of recent developments in technology, resume development, and social media: Does personal branding still matter? Are video resumes or a paper resumes more important? How does having a social media presence impact career advancement?

The insights originate annually from Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next. Career Jam participants include a diverse group of professionals. Their insights – based on daily interactions with job seekers and hiring authorities worldwide – reveal dynamic changes in the way we work today, and the way we'll work tomorrow. Mark November 30 for the 2018 Career Jam event to join in setting the trends for the future!
