“We live in an on-demand world where people want the most detailed information to make a decision, as well as the ability to make that decision quickly,” said Nicholas Murphy, 27, the co-founder of WorkBlast.com.

The trainer Dr. Rawitt hired, Bill McGowan, is a former anchor, reporter and producer at ABC, and he specializes in the visumé— a two-and-a-half- minute visual résumé. He has created about a dozen in the last year, at a charge of $3,500 each.

Whoa. Hey. Hi. Talk to me.
