  Four Cover Letter Secrets That Will Open Doors
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
Sending a résumé without a cover letter is like driving at night without your lights on. (You know, you will get a ticket for that!) So what are the dynamics of an effective cover letter? How can you determine the major points and entice recruiters and hiring managers to take a closer look? The Salutation: If you know the hiring manager’s name, use it; this is always preferable than the all too common: “To whom it may conce...
 
  How Much Education Should Be Listed on Resume?
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Dec, 2010
This is one of the questions that is posed to me again and again…and it is a good question! Here is the answer: IT DEPENDS. I know. You would like a clear-cut answer. But the reality is that when you set out to prepare a favorable candidacy via your resume you will use discernment and scrutinize your resume line-by-line, outweighing, repositioning, questioning, and editing so you influence and gain an interview. The fo...
 
  It’s Quality, Not Just Quantity that Gets You Hired
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Dec, 2010
Over the last few years, I’ve heard a lot of very intelligent job seekers casually remark they had sent out hundreds of resumes while looking for a job. These people firmly believed job searching was entirely a numbers game, so the more resumes they sent out, the more likely they were to be hired. Unfortunately, these job seekers were flawed in their thinking—and were generally not getting any hits from their resumes. While...
 
  Striking the Perfect Balance on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Dec, 2010
Have you ever heard someone suggest the only way to get a job today is to lie on your resume? I’ve heard several people say this over the last few years. That said, consider this: I’ve also heard just about every recruiter and hiring manager I know complain they are tired of reading resumes that dramatically overstate a candidate’s qualifications for a job. Little White Lies: Who’s Going to Know? Some job seekers think t...
 
  Top Three Keys To Making A Great First Impression
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
When you are job searching, you want to be prepared from all angles. Once you apply for a job, the microscope zooms in and you must be prepared to be examined. Putting your best foot forward when you are being so closely inspected involves more than presenting an error-free resume and wearing a nice smile. Here are the three pieces that fit together to shape how employers see you. Are you lacking in any of these areas? 1....
 
  The Dos and Don’ts of Thank You Notes
by Lindsey Pollak - Nov, 2010
Last week I talked about how to ask people for advice. This week, I thought it would be helpful to talk about how to thank people for the advice (and any other assistance) you receive. How perfect that it’s Thanksgiving week, too! Here are my top tips: Email thank yous are acceptable. I admit I’ve changed my mind over the years about email thank you notes. For a long time, I preached the importance of sending handwritten...
 
  Are you a French fry or a job seeker?
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2010
One of the first things I tell prospective clients who have received job hunting advice elsewhere before coming to me is that a lot of job search is unscientific — what one person likes, another thinks is useless. A good example is the cover letter debate. Some recruiters expect a cover letter, others believe they are a waste of time. The fact that opinions vary about “right and wrong” is clear in resume-ology as well. The fa...
 
  Engineers, Scientists, and Programmers: No Need to Apologize About Your Resume
by Paul Freiberger - Nov, 2010
The calls often begin with an apologetic “never needed a programmer resume” admission: “I’ve never had to get a professional resume before.” Or, “I never dreamed of hiring a professional resume writer. I’ve always been able to land a programming job.” Or, “I never even had to look for jobs. They found me.” Software wizards have seldom needed help from resume wizards. Engineers and programmers have a desired set of skills t...
 
  How Many Pages Should My Resume Be?
by Paul Freiberger - Nov, 2010
Unlike what your college adviser or career counselor may have told you, there are very few hard and fast rules regarding resume length. There are guidelines, but these can be broken at the drop of a hat if the end result, your resume, would be bettered by dropping them. Especially in times of high unemployment, professional resume writing is an art that demands a near-psychic connection with whoever is going to be reading...
 
  Job Search Essentials: New Resume, New Suit, New Attitude?
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
When I was searching for my first corporate job, I was called a few days after an interview and told, "Thank you for coming in, however we’ve decided to offer the position to someone else." I politely thanked her and let her know I appreciated the interview and follow-up call. The next day, I received a call from the same person with a job offer. I remember her words so vividly: "I’ll bet you weren’t expecting to hear from me!...
