  Should you create an infographic resume?
by Miriam Salpeter - Dec, 2011
When you are looking for a job, it’s important to demonstrate what makes you unique. How (and why) are you different from every other, similarly qualified job seeker? How to best present your credentials (via a resume, online profile, or your personal website) is a hot topic in the career world. Options for Standing Out Recently, several sites have come on the scene to help job seekers create infographic resumes. These...
 
  Create an Authentic and Ethical Resume to Win the Job
by Barbara Safani - Dec, 2011
A resume is a marketing tool and I encourage job seekers to position their accomplishments in the best possible light. However, it is critical that all information reported on the document is accurate and something you can back up with facts if questioned. Here are some of the ways I see job candidates crossing the line of ethical resume writing practices and some suggestions for creating a more authentic presentation of your...
 
  Résumé Help - Executive Retail Sales Manager
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2011
The candidate we are helping today is an executive sales manager with retail experience as well as experience in the mortgage industry. He has some notable accomplishments, but his résumé does not convey these in a way that highlights his strengths. Todd should have a headline, a summary statement, and a core competency section to build up his key areas of expertise and let readers know his value as a prospective manager....
 
  Résumé Help - Media Account Manager
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2011
Matthew is an accomplished account manager, but we would not know this by reading his résumé. His résumé is similar to many candidates early in their career who have not crafted a new résumé since college graduation. Many times a candidate will simply add on experience without a holistic view of their résumé and current career goal. An early sign of this are the words “Permanent Address” in the contact section. As we re...
 
  Are Resumes Dead?
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2011
Occasionally I read something by a recognized expert on employment issues or job search techniques, suggesting—or plainly stating—that resumes are dead and job seekers shouldn’t bother using a resume to secure their next position. If you’re sitting there staring at your shiny new resume, especially if you’ve just paid a professional to create it, you might be wondering whether you’ve wasted your time and hard-earned money. Tak...
 
  Seven Things You Don’t Want to Have on Your Resume
by Barbara Safani - Nov, 2011
While every job seeker is unique, here are some general items I recommend leaving off of your resume to achieve optimal results. 1. Objectives Most hiring managers I talk to are not interested in reading resume objectives. Frequently objectives sound very cliched and they rarely communicate what a candidate can do for an employer. Instead, use a professional summary that outlines your competencies and proves how you can h...
 
  Does Your LinkedIn Profile Serve as a Good Resume Supplement?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2011
A job search can easily move at a fast pace; so fast, in fact, that we don’t consider the importance of the steps we take in the process. This can be true of searching for jobs, writing resumes and cover letters, and even choosing the companies to which we submit. LinkedIn has quickly become an amazing tool, aiding job seekers in finding employment thanks to its networking facilities. But it can serve as a great way to su...
 
  Don’t Submit Your Entry-Level Resume without Showcasing
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2011
Every good resume comes with basic components to lure in hiring managers, and they are especially useful for you when writing an entry-level resume. But what are those components? Here are a few to consider: Career Summary You may wonder how you can summarize your career if it’s been a short one in your field. Well, just because you’re an entry-level candidate in your field doesn’t mean you’ve never worked or don’t ha...
 
  How to Avoid Errors in Your Resume
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2011
One of the fastest ways to lose a job opportunity is by submitting a resume with typos or spelling errors. In a competitive market where employers have a choice of qualified candidates, many hiring managers toss out error-laden resumes and choose the most perfect documents to review. It can be difficult, even for the most skilled writer, to proofread his or her own resume. It’s easy to overlook mistakes, especially those...
 
  Both Soft and Hard Skills Are Important in IT Resumes
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2011
As an information technology (IT) professional, you are probably accustomed to speaking, thinking, and breathing technology. So now that it’s time for you to apply for new positions, you are likely ready to utilize all of those great technical terms that make your industry flow so smoothly. But as a candidate writing resumes for individuals who may not exactly be entrenched in your world, you may have to make a few tweaks...
