ABOUT THE AUTHOR
HI, I’M RICK GILLIS
I invented a process for measuring the value of the work you do. I call this process the QTNT (pronounced Quotient). I want to share the QTNT with you.
In 2018 I recognized the simple and straightforward method I had been using with job search clients to determine the value of the work they had delivered to previous employers was something entirely new. Speaking with CFOs, I quickly learned I had created a new standard for measuring a worker’s value to their employer–and much more importantly, to themselves.
Why does this matter? People who work for a weekly paycheck (hourly or salaried vs. a commissioned salesperson) don’t truly know how to evaluate the value they deliver to the organization. The QTNT allows workers to objectively challenge their rate of pay. Employers support the QTNT because it identifies their top performers. Conversely it also points out those workers not carrying their own weight.
Before teaching people how to LEVEL THEIR PAYING FIELD, I was involved in the launch and the remarkable successes of the first two job boards in the greater Houston, Texas area. Over a period of ten years of calling on professionals who hired, I learned how job search really worked. Paying attention to what these pros wanted to see on a résumé and hear in an interview. Recognizing that what I was learning in their offices was not what I was seeing online or hearing at career events, I created my own highly successful, online-application-friendly, accomplishments-based résumé which I continue to recommend today.

Having been in the online job space from the beginning I have spoken on search, on-the-promotion, and advancement across the US, as well as on terrestrial radio and online forums across the world. I have been featured on NPR, PBS, Business Insider, and have been in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Inc. and so many more. As well I previously co-produced & hosted two radio shows and an employment-based TV series in Houston.
Enough about me. What can I do for you?
