TEAM LEWIS, the global marketing agency, today announced that it is retiring the resume. The initiative is one of many aimed at opening doors to career changers and non-degree holders. It will offer jobseekers the opportunity to choose a career based on what they want to be and how they want to change the world.
“In a world that is relentlessly digital, video-first, and unbound from convention, we have to recognize that the unique combination of talent and aspiration we’re looking for can and does come from anywhere and everywhere,” says Chris Lewis, founder and CEO of TEAM LEWIS. “We’re looking for passion, curiosity, the desire to push boundaries and rail against the status quo. Our team has some of the best and brightest minds in the industry and is prepared to teach the skills.”
Seasoned and aspiring marketers alike will be able to visit teamlewis.com/ER and in one word describe who they want to be. A designer, a thinker, a leader. After providing a link to their LinkedIn page, TEAM LEWIS will reach out to discuss their goals and which of the 100+ global opportunities might be a fit.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has prompted individuals across the globe to reconsider which parts of their lives they can change for the better. TEAM LEWIS has embraced this scaling global programs to support community causes, diversity, and flexible work environments for employees. Retiring the resume is one step further in breaking down barriers to new careers.
In 2020, a fifth of the global workforce was comprised of people between the ages of 15 and 24. Today, this group is recovering from the impacts of the pandemic, contributing to a recent finding that 48% of marketers were personally planning on leaving their job. This group represents a generation of marketers who are looking to define themselves not by what they do but by who they are.
Earlier this month, TEAM LEWIS launched its global RISE program. One hundred new entry-level trainees each year will be able to earn and learn through training, certification, shadowing and, work experience. The program is aimed at non-degree holders and career changers. It will offer the freedom to choose a career path in the marketing industry without having a degree or relevant work experience. RISE is part of TEAM LEWIS’ ongoing action program to address diversity, inclusion, communication, and equality (DICE).
