Why we created Klaxos
Christian launched Klaxos in 2009 to help solve the frustration he saw colleagues endure executing job searches where their high-level skills, experiences, and accomplishments went unnoticed by job recruiters. He wanted to help people escape the metaphorical “black hole” of job hunting. The place where resumes enter, but never leave, because the applicant tracking software (ATS) blocked them from moving forward, leaving candidates without an interview or an explanation. In 2009, LinkedIn had become the top sourcing tool used by recruiters searching for job candidates. Just as organizations strive to have their business website rank on page one of Google, professionals need to have their resume/CV rank at the top of LinkedIn, Google, and ATS search results.
Christian recognized the impact website search engine optimization (SEO) could have when applied to LinkedIn profiles and resumes that are scanned and parsed by applicant tracking software. Unlike other top resume services that outsource writing to low quality, overseas freelancers, he created and continues to lead a boutique, internal team of five certified writers that collaborate daily to help clients achieve their career goals. After helping 5,000+ clients land jobs at their target organization and 400+ five-star reviews, he feels satisfied that his team is making an impact.
