  Five Résumé Screw Ups You Might Be Making
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
Let’s face it. When it comes to writing résumés there are a lot of different opinions on the best format, style, and method. Even among certified professional résumé writers, there are a variety of approaches that can be taken. If you have gone the route of doing your résumé alone, or even if you have had a writer prepare your résumé, it is important to check twice to avoid these common screw-ups. 1. Are you a Manager or...
 
  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...
 
  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...
 
  Worst Words To Put In Your Resume
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
The burning question when it comes to most résumés is how to wow them with the wonders of you all on an 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper. For those readers who have seen my many blogs on résumé writing, you know I have no shortage of information regarding what you should include. Knowing what to leave off of your résumé is a topic that is of equal importance. Here is a list of chart topping résumé no-no’s: -Responsible for: ‘Res...
 
  Would You Hire You?
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
I always feel satisfied when I complete a résumé for a client of mine and they say, “I look so good now – even I would hire me.” While having an outstanding résumé that highlights your true strengths is invaluable, it is equally important to seek opportunities that are realistic. Early in my career when I was in corporate HR, I cannot tell you the number of inappropriate résumés I received. It was so bad sometimes that I w...
 
  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...
 
  Authenticity Rules
by Ariadne Moisiades - Nov, 2010
Just the other day, I had another person tell me all they want to do is work at Google. I get this one a lot, so I’ve started asking why. The response usually focuses on one of the following: • “Because it’s fun.” • “They really support you.” • “They give you room to be yourself.” I also usually hear: • “… and they have great perks.” It makes sense – Google offers great health care, child care, flex time, generous compen...
