In the wake of one of the most wide-reaching unemployment crises that hit the world today, frustrated job seekers will need all the help they can get. Sadly, not every company has the patience or the luxury to take those without amiable credentials. The current economic climate has not just made things difficult for people looking forward to shifting careers; it has also been a major blow for recent college graduates who have neither extensive job experience nor influential connections. This translates to practically lesser prospects for a whole annum of a company’s workforce.
Of the many people working hard to reverse this dire trend, Robert J. Gerberg has perhaps made the most profound progress as an individual contributor to the cause. As the mastermind behind one of the most comprehensive job-hunting programs developed recently, Gerberg is poised to restore hope for the millions of unemployed people out there.
Robert J. Gerberg graduated from Colgate University in 1985 with a degree in Political Science. He has a professional background in business and digital marketing. Aside from a stint at Harvard Business School, he also holds a Masters degree in Business Administration from the Leeds School of Business, at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
One of Gerberg’s earliest jobs was at the Personal Products Division of the Bausch & Lomb eye health company. His father, Robert J. Gerberg Sr, had previously established himself as the author of some of the most successful job-hunting literature in the United States. His books, programs and multimedia presentations have completely shaped the way many people go about the recruitment process. In the early nineties, Robert J. Gerberg served as President of Princeton/Masters Press—the same publishing house that processed his father’s work. Under Gerberg’s leadership, the publishing house had released one of its most widely-read books: An Easier Way to Change Jobs.
Today, Gerberg is the CEO of Advanced Career Technologies, or ACT. The company improved the way job search is carried out by incorporating a number of high-performance Internet technologies. With his broad business experience, Gerberg has shaped ACT into one of the most useful assets any job seeker can turn to.
