The power dynamic between talent and companies is broken. The information asymmetry has become so lopsided that even though companies have good intentions, workers fear communicating.
This problem begins with the recruiting process and offer negotiation. A process so opaque that it hurts both sides. Candidates are afraid to advocate for themselves, breeding resentment, or choose an offer with poor information and leave quickly, causing company attrition.
Hiring managers care, but they are too busy to educate. Recruiters & HR are experts, but their job is to protect the companies interests.
It is time job seekers were empowered with experts of their own. If your career is as important as where you live, like using a real estate agent to buy a home, a Career Agent can advise you in your transactions with the company.
Ralph's mission is to empower job seekers with the same information companies have.
