One of the biggest questions job applicants have is how to make their resume stick out to employers so they can land an interview with their dream company.
Here’s a little secret for those in the 2014 job market: your resume alone isn’t good enough anymore.
If you really want to make a strong impression, you need to do something totally different than the rest of your competition.
And what is every other person doing when they apply to the job you want? They’re spending all their time polishing up their resume, trying to make those itty bitty words pop out from that 8.5” x 11” page.
If the job you want is in high demand, you can bet it’ll be hard to distinguish yourself from every other applicant following the same traditional resume format.
It’s a sad but true reality: hiring managers will take about 5-10 seconds looking at your resume before sending it to the trash, if nothing catches their eye.
We believe your time could be better spent elsewhere, if you’re really looking to score your dream job.Read more

Can removing a form field from your signup pages increase your conversion rates?
Even though the existence of name and email address form fields on every signup page is widely accepted and not given too much thought, we were curious to know if a name field was always necessary for capturing leads.
We wondered if we omitted a name field on certain pages, could we reduce the friction for converting and actually raise conversion rates?
To answer to this question, we ran a split test to see whether or not a signup page with 1 form field performed better than a page with 2 form fields.
Have a look at what we found in our results below…Read more

A customer of ours recently asked if they should use a photo background on their Megaphone page rather than a blank background, to maximize conversions.
Unknowingly, they had set off a fiery but healthy (we promise) dispute in our office :-)
See, most of us felt strongly that a photo background was the best choice. However, one dissenting voice said they had seen evidence before that showed blank backgrounds to work better.
We wanted to settle this, so we decided to run a simple split test to see how a photo background would perform against a blank background…
