  Resume Writing Trends and Tips
by Georgia Adamson - Mar, 2012
The Career Thought Leaders white paper from the 2011 Global Career Brainstorming Day attended by many careers professionals (myself included) has so much information that I still need to re-read it a time or two to grasp it all. However, I found quite a few tidbits just on resume writing and cover letters that I thought you might find useful. (Note: The subtitle of the report is “Trends for the Now, the New & the Next in Caree...

Résumé guidelines are not arbitrary. They are based on an understanding how the human brain receives written communication and how recruiters and employers select candidates for an interview. Every style used and every word chosen is either supporting your caree...
 
  Writing a Unique Cover Letter
by Debra Wheatman - Mar, 2012
One reason so many job seekers hate writing cover letters is because they find it difficult to write something unique. There is a lot of pressure to write that one-in-a-million killer cover letter, especially in a crowded job market. So, how do you write something original and captivating? Write a hook in the opening paragraph. ¡Start your letter with a startling fact or industry trend. ¡Congratulate the company o...
 
  Write a resume an employer will appreciate
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2012
How can you appeal to an employer? Spoon feed your resume! You would not hand an infant with no teeth a whole apple to eat; he or she wouldn’t know what to do with it. (For the uninitiated, take my word for it here. The baby may just throw it back at you and still be hungry. And crying.) Instead, you would offer applesauce and manipulate the spoon full directly into the infant’s mouth. Similarly, (see where I am going here...
 
  How to write your resume
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2012
Almost every resume I see reads like a laundry list of “stuff” the person has done at work. The problem is that everyone applying for the job you seek probably has a similar list of “stuff.” What makes you stand out? Why are you special – why do YOU deserve to win an interview and the job? It certainly isn’t because you were “responsible for” something or that you were “recruited to” do something. No one really wants to se...

  How To Make Yourself Three Times More Likely to Get Hired
by Arthur Frank - Jan, 2012
Research done by the executive search industry has shown that the first person interviewed gets the job only 17.6 percent of the time. But the last person interviewed is hired almost 56 percent of the time, or more than three times more frequently. The reason: As in most human endeavors, people are wary of accepting the first choice offered. Therefore, do what you can to position yourself among the last candidates intervie...
 
  Avoid the Resume “Black Hole” Trap
by Georgia Adamson - Jan, 2012
If your resume looks as if it could have come from 20 years ago or it just hasn’t been put together carefully–with good attention to what your targeted employers are probably looking for–it most likely will end up in the resume “black hole” trap. The same goes for submitting it to employers without doing any research beforehand to see if your background makes sense for the company. Yet another black hole mistake is distributin...
