by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
When we review people’s resumes, we often see a basic document with lackluster content and outdated formatting. These are pretty common, but what we also see are resumes that contain some pretty fundamental mistakes. Here are some examples of things to not do: 1. Under the document properties section of your resume, make sure it shows you as the author of your documents. Having someone else’s name there, particularly if...
 
  7 Strategies to Overcoming the Resume Black Hole
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
We hear from job seekers every day who are sending out hundreds of resumes and job applications never to be heard from again. It’s hard to tell if it’s the resume that’s at fault or the company that’s not hiring, already hired, or just sitting in a stack of 500 others never to be found. So I’ve compiled a list of seven ways to overcome the resume black hole that so many resumes seem to go in to. MANAGE YOUR JOB SEARCH DON’T...
 
  An important question to ask your friends today – it could get you a job!
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I write often about the need to surround yourself with positive, supportive people during a stressful period of job transition. Connecting with family and friends regularly lifts your spirits and reminds your network to keep an eye out for you. It can also provide you with important insider information about the job market in your local community. I recently had lunch with a friend whose husband works for a Fortune 200 co...
 
  Are you too hard on yourself?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Remember when you were a teenager, and you were convinced that everyone around you was staring at every single imperfection you possessed? Fortunately, as we get older we realize that most people really aren’t that concerned with what we’re doing. However, I often encounter job seekers who seem a little stuck in the mentality of “Everyone is looking at me!” Few things in life are absolutely perfect, and most people don’t...
 
  Avoiding Company-Specific Lingo on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I recently met a woman who had started a new job with a Fortune 50 company several months ago. While she enjoyed some aspects of her new position, she was having a very difficult time adjusting to the culture of her new company due to the other employees constantly using acronyms she didn’t understand. The situation is so bad that every day she writes down a list of terms that she doesn’t grasp and asks her assistant to expl...
 
  Great Strategies for Addressing Behavioral Interview Questions
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Chances are that you’ve encountered the term “behavioral interviewing” at some point during your job search. This is an increasingly popular interview format based on the belief that past behavior is the greatest predictor of future behavior. Typically interviewers ask questions like, “Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a coworker, and how you chose to handle that situation.” During a behavioral interview,...
 
  Helping Your Network to Help You (Find A Job)
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Remember the infamous scene in Jerry McGuire where Tom Cruise is standing in a locker room, begging Cuba Gooding Jr. to stop shooting his own career in the foot? You know the line: “Help me help you!” Many of us have family and friends who don’t really understand what we do for a living. I personally have a cousin who can’t explain her own husband’s job. We often recognize that those around us don’t really appreciate our...
 
  Helping yourself (and your job search) while you help others
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Job seekers often complain of feeling like they’re anonymously sending their resumes off into a black hole—never to be acknowledged or contacted. In today’s automated world, it can often be difficult to know if your resume is ever even seen by a live human being. Everyone knows that having a contact on the inside of an organization can greatly improve your chances of their responding to your application. How do you cultiv...
 
  How to Mention Unrelated Work Experience on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Many candidates who come to us for resume help have the same question. They have years of professional work experience, but a lot of it isn’t relevant to the position they’re currently seeking. On the one hand, they don’t want to waste resume space detailing work that doesn’t relate to their application. On the other hand, they don’t want to omit years of work that developed them as a professional. THE RIGHT PHRASE I us...
