As with many job seekers I meet, he wanted to carry all his “luggage” down each path; placing equal weight on his entire skills set for each opportunity. I explained how an “I can do anything and everything” approach would not work in this market. I told him his message had to be tailored to speak to a potenti...

by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Mar, 2011
It’s important to express in a resume the unique skill set, expertise, and knowledge that you can bring to the employer.

  5 Critical Areas of Weakness With Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Mar, 2011
Each week, I critique a new resume on-air over at www.jobtalkamerica.com. And over the past couple of months I’ve started to notice some of what I like to call “terrible resume trends”. They’re common mistakes that everyday job seekers are making—and they have no idea that they’re making them! (How can you fix what’s wrong if you don’t even know what that is!) Well, I’m here to open your eyes and (hopefully) start getting...

  How Important is a Resume Strategy?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Mar, 2011
If you’re wondering how important it is that you have a strategic resume, then let me ask you this: How important is it for you to be employed? What most job seekers don’t realize is that a resume isn’t simply a list of your past positions. Your resume is a strategic document that positions you for job search success. We often tell our clients that nothing about the resume development process is arbitrary. We have a strat...

  LinkedIn Profiles and Your Executive Resume – What’s the Difference?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Mar, 2011
There’s no doubt about it: LinkedIn is one of the greatest job search tools available today. Not only can you “advertise” your availability and display career endorsements, but being viewable on LinkedIn is a boon to executive recruiters that may need your skills.

  Why Branding Your Resume Produces a High ROI
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Mar, 2011
It has been no secret in advertising and marketing for some time now that you need to know your target audience. And it really isn’t any different in a job search. You need to know who you audience is, what their needs are, and how to communicate the benefits of what you offer. Last autumn I jumped head first into a huge conversion rate optimization project. I was doing hours of research and work to figure out everything...
