From the STC 2002 Region 7 Conference hosted by STC Canada West Coast:

Circumventing HR: Effective Jobhunting Strategies (PDF 23 KB)
Sending your resume to a company’s HR department does more harm than good. HR professionals are most definitely NOT a job-seeker’s best friend. Their main task is to weed out the candidates they consider less qualified. Fortunately, there are ways to get the real decision-maker’s attention. This presentation will introduce concepts and practical strategies that will help you land your dream job.
