  3 Ways to Draw Industry Specific Terminology on Your Resume
by Debra Ann Matthews - Jan, 2013
Believe it or not, some people are so proficient at their jobs, that they can’t tell you what they do for a living. These people (many of my clients get so frustrated when I simply ask them to tell me what they do). The reason that it is important to verbally communicate your skills and accomplishments is that it helps your supervisor, the HR representative or hiring personnel to see your value. Once the value of your ability...
  7 of the Most Overused Resume Words and Phrases of 2012
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2013
Let’s lay to rest the worn out, tired resume words and phrases that every job seeker seemed to utilize in 2012. Be sure when you’re getting your resume together for your 2013 job search that you avoid these generic, vague terms that make you sound just like everyone else versus someone who stands out from the crowd. Accomplished — Rather than saying you’re accomplished, use quantifiable examples throughout the resume to sh...
  What’s Wrong With My Resume? 5 Things to Consider
by Debra Ann Matthews - Jan, 2013
Okay, you have now polished your resume in the best way that you know how after you have: (a) Finished that job training program/school (b) Completed the internship (c) Preparing to leave the military (d) Started to search for jobs after gaining some practical experiences in an entry level position. You’ve put your best foot forward as you have applied for jobs that you believe you can perform and offer value to the corporatio...
  Getting Out of Your Own Way to Write a Good Resume
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Jan, 2013
Everyone has a story to tell, and by digging deep, you can unearth gems that sparkle and gleam, attracting even the weariest hiring manager's attention. Sadly, however, most people don't know how to excavate their precious-stone stories, and the result is lackluster content. A marketing-driven resume must be color-rich, clear, and strong enough to bear the heavy—often unforgiving—weight of the resume-vetting process. T...
  How to Create An Engaging Resume That Won’t Bore the Employer
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2013
I hate to say it, but the attention span of hiring managers seems to be getting shorter. In fact, I was speaking with an executive-level employer the other day (who regularly reviews resumes), and he commented about how quickly he can scan through a stack of resumes and choose the candidates he plans to call. He admitted that it really is an unfair process—that so many job seekers are judged solely by the quality and presentat...
  Everything but the kitchen sink in your resume
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2012
Many people want to include everything they have done on their resume. Whether it’s their first job, details of every position they’ve had, or even where they attended high school. This can be overkill. You only want to highlight relevant experience because you may lose the recruiter or the employer who is looking at your resume. Don’t get lost in the shuffle. It isn’t important to go back to what high school you attended...
  Resume Writing: It’s All About What You Leave Out
by Louise Fletcher - Dec, 2012
I’m taking an art class at the moment and one of the lessons being drummed into us is that what you leave out of a painting or drawing is just as important as what you include. As I was working on a landscape sketch last night, and making the decision to ignore a whole line of trees, it struck me that the exact same principle applies to resume writing or creating online profiles on sites like LinkedIn. You could tell e...
  Six Steps To A Polished & Relevant Resume
by Cathy Eng - Dec, 2012
Giving your resume a polished, professional look and feel proves to employers that you are detail-oriented, take your job search seriously, and know what it takes to stand out. Sloppy or boring resumes (e.g. too much white space, generic wording, errors, etc.) are the ones that end up lost somewhere in HR or in the trash. But, there are several steps to make your resume stand out as polished and professional. Here are just som...
  Two Quick Steps To Help Your Resume Stand Out
by Cathy Eng - Dec, 2012
If you are like most professionals (myself included), you have submitted the same resume for multiple positions without much thought to whether your skills or experience matched well with the position. However, unless you are in a trade where your responsibilities are largely the same with each company (e.g. roofing, housekeeping, etc.), your resume should not be identical for every position. Also, hiring managers can almo...
  You Don't Need to Pack Your Resume With Keywords
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Dec, 2012
Resumes are not a science; nor do they require mathematical algorithms to land that next great interview. While using language in your resume that mirrors your target company's needs is imperative, keyword packing is not. In other words, know your audience, be precisely focused in your target job, and let the words bubble up intuitively. The following are five reasons you should spread your energies and job search mark...
