NEW YORK (July 15, 2019) — Talent Inc., the global leader in technology-enabled career services, today announced a strategic partnership with Adweek, the leading source of news and insight serving the brand-marketing ecosystem, to power the media brand’s job site, Adweek Jobs. Through Talent Inc.’s suite of brands, including TopResume and TopInterview, the company helps professionals tell the best version of their career story. The collaboration will enable Adweek to provide a more robust career-service offering to their readership of more than 6 million engaged professionals in the advertising and marketing industries.
“Partnering with Adweek is especially exciting as it enables us to provide industry-leading offerings from not just one, but two of our brands — TopResume and TopInterview,” said Todd Goldstein, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at Talent Inc. “Adweek is a well-respected authority of the advertising and marketing industries, and powering Adweek Jobs with our resume-writing and interview-coaching services enables them to further strengthen their leadership role.”
TopResume’s professional resume-writing services offer Adweek Jobs’ job seekers a carefully crafted career narrative that differentiates them from the competition, leading to more interviews, which, in turn, can result in more job offers. In tandem, TopInterview’s team of interview coaches helps job seekers pinpoint what makes candidates stand out and helps them to convey those strengths during their interviews.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Talent Inc. for our Adweek Jobs platform,” said Mehmet Zenginler, Adweek’s Vice President, Sales & Operations. “As the most trusted source of news and insights for the marketing and advertising community, we’re looking forward to providing our Adweek Jobs subscribers with best-in-class resume and interview-coaching services. This partnership between our brands is a clear win-win.”
Earlier this year, TopResume commissioned an independent, industry-first study to determine if recruiters perceive candidates with professionally written resumes to be more employable, as well as if job seekers benefit from a professionally written resume. In summary, recruiters valued candidates with professionally written resumes to be worth more than when assessed using their self-written versions. In fact, candidates with professionally written resumes were more likely to secure interviews, land a new job sooner, and advance their career faster.
