Last year, Cancer@Work unveiled the "Fighting Cancer" campaign with the FamousGrey Paris agency. This campaign has enabled the Cancer@Work association to change the way we look at cancer patients by creating the first LinkedIn skill that valorize their experience with illness.
This year, Cancer@Work has chosen to go even further, by giving former patients the opportunities to re-enter the labor market, by creating The Unstoppable Résumé.
Nowadays, the recruiting world is more and more computerized: 95% of large companies and 50% of SMEs use recruitment software called ATS (Applicant Tracking System). This software is programmed to analyze CVs. They cross-reference dates or ranges of experiences and search for specific keywords. Therefore, they are able to exclude a CV that contains a period of inactivity like a recovery period. For people affected by cancer, finding work is extremely complicated because of the blank space left by the disease on their CV.
