  Top 5 tips for your resume
by Hallie Crawford - Nov, 2012
Are you lost and unsure about your resume or cover letter? Here are 5 things to keep in mind when writing your resume: 1. Keep it short – Keep it at two pages or less. Most people hiring prefer one page, but two pages is okay if the content is appropriate. For example, someone who has had a longer career. 2.

  “How Long Should My Resume Be?”
by Louise Fletcher - Nov, 2012
Of all the questions we get asked, this has to be one of the most common. For some reason, resume length is one of those things lots of people have a firm opinion on, but – to be honest – few have any real basis for that opinion. For example, there are many people who will tell you that your resume must be only one-page long. This is a myth (as I explain here) and should be ignored! Others – generally those over 50 – will...

by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2012
It's a spooky time of year. Ghoulish decorations, goblins, and jack-o-lanterns abound, reminding us that it's time to stock up on bowls of candy for greedy trick-or-treaters. It's also a good reminder to make sure that you aren't frightening off hiring managers and squandering opportunities to land jobs. Is it time to dress up your job search strategy? You don't need to transform into someone else altogether, but if you ha...

  Truth or dare on your resume (Tell a white lie?)
by Hallie Crawford - Oct, 2012
I can’t tell you how many times we have career coaching clients come to us wondering what is ok to put on their resume and what is not. I find that most people we encounter fall into the category of not wanting to lie on their resume (a good thing!!) but as a result they end up selling themselves short. They are so worried about telling the truth on their resume that they go to the other extreme, and aren’t fully comfortable s...
 
  Should I Include Salary Requirements on My Cover Letter, Resume, or Application When Asked?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2012
I recently found myself baffled. Yes, baffled. I placed an ad with a prominent, industry-related newsletter seeking a few new, talented, certified resume writers to add to our team. One of the requirements of the application submission included submitting a few samples of previous work the writers had completed—and also a request that they submit their fee requirements. Of all the submissions we received, only one cand...

by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2012

And many people believe the only way to job search these days is to go online, post their resume to a job board, and spend time searching through the job boards looking for openings. Yes, this is a piece of the job search puzzle, folks. But it’s not the whole pie. You can’t rely on job boards alone to find a job. That makes your job sear...

Many careerists believe there is one résumé template that fits everyone. It is not uncommon for job seekers to borrow a résumé from a friend or copy a template found online when creating their résumé.
