  Resumes for Every Generation
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
This past week I attended a presentation about Baby Boomers, Generation X-ers, and Millennials learning to communicate and work well together in the professional world. The speaker provided great tips for understanding each generation and how to effectively use their strengths to the best advantage. While the presentation focused on helping everyone work well together, I couldn’t help but think about the ramifications of wha...
 
  Subtle Ways to Tell Your Story in Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
A frequent theme of our blogs is limiting your resume to information that’s truly relevant to the position for which you’re applying. You should feel free to leave off your high school job serving fast food or your college job working retail if you have years of subsequent work experience. Also, listing only the achievements from your previous jobs can actually omit an important component of your career: your personal story....
 
  The Best Time to Write a Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Imagine for a moment that you’ve just heard the dreaded words, “We’re going to have to let you go.” A lot of people have heard this phrase over the last several years, and most have probably reacted with some degree of panic: How am I going to pay my bills? Where am I going to go? What am I going to do? Obviously, this frame of mind is not a great launching point for your next job. Writing an effective resume and cover...
 
  The Words all Professional Resume Writers Hate to Hear
by Louise Fletcher - Sep, 2010
Checking my email one day this week, I found one that started in a way destined to make my heart sink: “I know we finalized this resume a while ago, but I showed it to a friend and he had some comments …” My heart doesn’t sink because of the extra work – I don’t mind that if the comments are helpful – but because I know that they probably won’t be. So I now have two choices. 1) Make changes that will be detrimental to th...
 
  Five Tips for Writing a Compelling Résumé
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Résumés have come a long way since they were just typed pages that chronologically listed employment histories, job duties, and educational qualifications. Hiring managers are inundated with hundreds of résumés that still follow “old school”. In a competitive economy, however, a résumé needs to work much harder. Every inch of résumé space must be used to effectively communicate your value proposition and differentiation str...
 
  Does your résumé feature an endorsement?
by Nimish Thakkar - Aug, 2010
Celebrity and customer endorsements -- those attention-grabbing testimonies and user accounts on popular commercials -- have also been used to make candidate résumés meatier, minus the celebrities of course. Career coaches and professional résumé writers often showcase snippets of employer, client, vendor, or peer comments to give client résumés extra punch, and hiring managers something memorable. “Testimonials are powe...

  3 Keys to Customizing Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Aug, 2010
In recent blogs, I’ve written a lot about the importance of investing time into every job application you submit, even if this means applying for fewer total jobs. While it’s most efficient to get your resume fine-tuned to a point where it needs little modification for each new job application, you generally will need to make a few changes each time in order to customize your document.
