Mike O'Brien, Climber.com

Most job seekers are satisfied with a resume that does a "good" job positioning them and presenting their skills and experience. But according to national online recruiting expert Climber.com, "good" isn't enough in today's tight job market-particularly at the leadership level. "Would you allow the brakes on your car to just be 'good enough'?" asks Climber.com founder and CEO Mike O'Brien. "How about your parachute? What we're finding in today's recruiting environment is that a job seeker's resume has become the key to unlocking doors at a new organization-or keeping them slammed shut. If your resume isn't a perfect representation of your skills, accomplishments and experience, you're just standing in your own way."
