  Should I Include X in My Resume?
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2012
This is one of the most common questions I’m asked by my clients. I write resumes designed to appeal to a specific target audience, and this means I often omit facts and information that I know won’t impress that target audience. 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...
 
  Ultimate (Resume) Writing Tip: How to Write For Your Audience
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012

  Resume Trends: Modernizing Your Resume
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2012
Recently I participated in a teleseminar titled “Modernizing Your Resumes and Cover Letters,” presented by the Resume Writing Academy and Career Thought Leaders Consortium. This seminar gave me a lot of food for thought, including the fact that change has been happening so rapidly, it’s hard to keep up! Among other things, this means you can’t keep using your old resume indefinitely. If you haven’t updated it within the past y...
 
  Creating a Fresh Resume for a Job With Your Current Employer
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jun, 2012
Thinking about applying for a job with your current employer? Many employees consider doing the same thing every year in hopes of being promoted internally. Of course, in most cases, employees are required to start the application process all over again. This can feel intimidating but actually isn’t a bad thing at all. By starting over, you have a chance to review your current skills and accomplishments and improve your re...

The process can sometimes be so tedious that i...

by Debra Wheatman - May, 2012
In most situations, your résumé will be read on a screen. It could be a 17-inch screen and it could be a 2-inch screen. Hiring managers and recruiters will make instantaneous decisions about which résumé they would like to save for consideration and which to delete. The time allocated to make that decision is significantly reduced in today’s world owing to the nature of how we behave when going through emails or documents onli...
 
  QR Codes on Your Résumé
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2012
A QR Code is a 2-dimensional “quick response” bar code that contains a set of data (text, numbers, or a hyperlink). This data can be decoded by QR Readers, which are widely available as Smartphone apps. Take a picture of the QR Code with the phone’s camera, and the embedded information instantly appears. If you are pumping out awesome, niche-related content, your #1 goal should be directing hiring managers to your blog. Wi...
 
  Résumé Help: Is That “Other Information” Overkill?
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2012
Recently I saw a woman walk into a store with excessive accessories. Maybe it was the red rose clip in her hair, or it could have been the 1980s-style bangles and matching chandelier earrings. It was a sight to behold. If she had stopped with the earrings, she would have looked terrific. Under the barrage of bling was a really cute dress. The same is true on a résumé. You get to a point where you have the perfect amount...
