  Taking a Conversational Approach to Writing Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2012
Oftentimes, writing a resume can be difficult because we have a hard time connecting on a personal level to what we’re writing. While we may relate to the skills we possess, we often take a bit of a mechanical approach when delivering the message. A great way to begin the process of drafting your resume without getting caught in robotic writing is to try taking a conversational approach. By envisioning that you’re speaking...

  How To Replace Your Resume’s Overused Keywords/Phrases
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012

Many of these skills - teamwork, dedication, enthusiasm - are ones that are simply expected in today’s workplace and don’t do the job of making you stand out to employers. In fact, hiring managers see them so often on resumes that they often don’t even notice them anymore....

I have written resumes for many clients who were not moving companies and some who weren’t even moving departments – they were simply asked to present an updated resume to apply for a higher-tiered position within their company.

And that can sometimes be hard to swallow. After all, if you see a first draft of your resume that omits key facts, it’s natural to ask “but shouldn’t X be included?” You worked hard for that achi...
