I am a Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) with more than 14 years of progressive leadership experience. I have worked in a variety of different industry groups and taught HR management and occupational health and safety.

In 2017, I decided to venture out on my own and start my own business as an HR consultant. There were lots of jobs online, so I applied to several HR consultant positions to do some contract work.

And one thing I quickly discovered while applying to various jobs was that many of the newer online recruiting systems were incredibly verbose and time-consuming.
