  Resume Enlightenment: The “Oh My” Moment
by Robin Schlinger - Sep, 2015
What was your “oh my” moment—the moment when you realized that you needed a professional resume writer? For a management trainee who wanted to move into a managerial position, that moment occurred when an interviewer wanted to know what he meant by “sense background.” The word was supposed to be “science,” but his spell-checker changed a misspelling (“scence”) to “sense.” A director of programs and projects realized that...
  Resume Tips V: Giving Yourself Credit
by Robin Schlinger - Sep, 2015
I have a friend who is conversational in three languages. That impresses me no end. But when she showed me her resume, I was surprised to find that she never mentioned her talent in languages. As a professional resume writer, one of my tasks is to help job seekers recognize hidden talents that actually have very high value for companies. My friend made four statements that I have heard over and over again from job seekers who...
  Resume Tips IV: Explaining Your Career
by Robin Schlinger - Aug, 2015
Before hiring managers and recruiters can offer you a new job, they have to understand your old job. For example, if hiring managers or recruiters never heard of the company you work for, they might find it impossible to judge your contribution or your fit for their own company. What industry did you work in? How large was the company you worked for? What did the company produce or what service did it perform? By including...
  Resume Tips III: Balancing Accomplishments with Reality
by Robin Schlinger - Aug, 2015
I know that we all face contradictory feelings about our accomplishments: sometimes we boast about them and sometimes we hide them; sometimes we are annoyed because no one recognizes them and sometimes we demand recognition we barely deserve. Those contradictory sentiments often show up in the resumes that job applicants bring to me for my professional review and rewrite. A recent college graduate started out his resume...
  The LinkedIn Summary Dilemma: Use "I" or Not?
by Jean Cummings - Aug, 2015
LinkedIn profile writing is a challenge. And there are ways in which the LinkedIn profile summary section is still the Wild West. The LI summary is a blank page only restricted by the 2000 character limit. There are no requirements for anything in particular, such as listing your jobs and dates. So why is it important to worry about this? And what should you do? People know that LI is the premier business networking site. I...
  4 Steps To Ensure A Joyful Job Search
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Aug, 2015
You know that saying, "Comparison is the thief of joy?" Well, it can apply to job search. So many people get swept up in comparing themselves and their job search to others that it bogs them down until they are buried in frustration, cynicism and even anger. Don't let this be you. For example: 1. Don't compare writing your resume to what other people in your network tell you is the right way. There are no clear-...

  Resume Tips II: Resume Headlines Make a Difference
by Robin Schlinger - Aug, 2015
The headline on your resume (the line immediately under your name and contact information) briefly describes the position you want. It might make the difference between a resume that is read and one that is ignored. Keep the following rules in mind. Rule 1. Do not block yourself from consideration by focusing on a job title that is too narrow. First, your skills, accomplishments, and education might fit you for many differe...

  Resume Tips I: Nine Facts about Accomplishments
by Robin Schlinger - Aug, 2015
To begin, we should define that word “accomplishment.” Here are three examples of what a resume accomplishment is and is not: ◾An accomplishment is not the same as a task. For example, the task is “filing”; the accomplishment is computerizing 5 years of paper files to make access more efficient and widespread throughout the company. ◾An accomplishment is not the same as a skill. For example, the skill is the...
