  Why 70% Of Resumes Have This Phrase - And Why You Should Avoid It
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jun, 2010
Somewhere in Resume Writing 101, someone came up with the great idea of listing years of experience as a qualifier. You’ve seen (or used) something like this: “over 15 years of experience in...” It seems to make sense, especially after you’ve spent some time in the industry and you want to show employers that you bring a seasoned background to the table.

  Objective and Summary Statements on Resumes: What to Include?
by Anne Jabusch - Jun, 2010
Using an objective statement on your resume is a highly controversial topic in the human resource industry. Many HR professionals argue that objective statements are never well written and tend to be very self-serving. For example, my first resume objective statement was "to obtain a position where I can utilize my experience and grow with a stable company."

When I work with clients looking to improve their interviewing skills, they are surprised when I mention that the interview process begins with the resume. Of course it does. Why is the resume so important? It’s a major element of the job search because without an effective resume, there’s no reason to worry about interviewing. But really, it is much more than that. Of course, the resume is a document that summarizes your e...
  Resume Writing Checklist
by Patricia Erickson - Jun, 2010
In a recent blog post, I mentioned the importance of a high impact resume on the interview process. Clearly, a well written resume gets you in the door, but it also stacks you up against your competition and ranks you in the employer’s eyes even before you get in the door. If your resume puts you in the top three out of ten great – you can work with that. However, if your resume places number ten out of ten, you’ve really g...
  The Amputated Resume: Is Yours Missing Critical Details That Can Get You Hired?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jun, 2010
I’ve seen an alarming trend among self-written resumes lately, where job hunters are positioning themselves for promotion, but have failed to include any information that substantiates their placement at this level. If you’ve decided that it’s time for the next step up in your career, it’s a good idea to use prominent wording and a resume title that clearly shows your intent. But if you forgot to include supporting detai...
