May 5, 2009 (Press Release) Local authors Jennifer and Theo Rallis announced the US release of Ugly Resumes Get Jobs – And Other Fishing Lessons ( This is a must have guide for any job seeker who has ever felt lost in the hiring system. “The sad truth is that most job seekers don’t stand a fighting chance in today’s job market. Being good at what you do isn’t enough”, said Jennifer Rallis. “Most companies are structured in a way that makes it nearly impossible for a job seeker to get noticed by hiring authorities. Add to that cost cutting initiatives, ATS’(Applicant Tracking Systems) and out-dated resume formats, thousands of job seekers will never have their resume seen by human eyes.”

The Rallis’ provide a backstage pass to the world of recruiting and how companies hire. With every job seeker bidding for only 20% of the advertised job market, the Rallis’ show job seekers where to focus their job search, what online and offline tools they need to leverage and how to get the attention of the recruiters sitting on 80% of the unadvertised job market. An Ugly Resume isn’t pretty but it’s highly functional; it’s designed to navigate thru the technology driven roadblocks and ensure your resume is put in the hands of a decision maker.

To further help job seekers, the Rallis’ are giving books away to corporations who opt to help their displaced workforce through the purchase of Ugly Resumes Get Jobs and Other Fishing Lessons. “We will match all corporate contributions” said Theo Rallis. “ It’s not about looking the other way or turning off your TV and hoping this will all get better. It will take action on everyone’s part!”
