Smart Biz Feature Article: Bored Employees are Bad for Business by Don Garrett of Resume Not Required
With my company, I have spoken to thousands of CEOs and business owners over the years who are frustrated at their inability to find and hire the right people. As a fellow employee, you may even find yourself frustrated by the impact of other disengaged employees at your workplace.
According to Gallup, 18 per cent of the workforce in America is actively disengaged at their jobs; another 49 per cent are considered “not engaged.”
People stay in jobs they dislike for a variety of reasons – apathy, fear of finding another job, etc. – but regardless of the reason, their lack of commitment at work comes at a heavy cost to a company. Estimates from Gallup indicate these employees cost American businesses between $292 and $355 billion annually in lost productivity.
In August Forbes put out a call for nominees and got over 2,000 comments, emails and tweets. According to Forbes, they hope the list provides a "comprehensive guide to smart and engaging sites" for job seekers, business owners and "anyone else looking to launch, improve, advance, or change his or her career".
Resume Not Required is excited to make the Honorable Mention List and looks forward to making the Top 100 next year!

by Matt Vecchio, Loudoun Times-Mirror, August 31, 2011
Resume after resume, rejection after rejection - job hunting can take its toll. Frustration and self doubt sets in, making the process increasingly arduous as time goes on and bills and debt pile up. At least two companies are trying to provide a light at the end of that tunnel.
“Job hunting is the most painful, depressing thing,” Don Garrett, founder of Vienna-based Resume Not Required, said. “People would often rather be miserable at their job every day than go through the process of looking for another one.”
