  Your resume is not (only) about you!
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2011
One of the biggest mistakes job seekers make is thinking their resume is about THEM. They want to wax eloquent about all of the things they’ve done (the laundry list) and hate to leave out a single thing. Take a few steps back… How much of the information you are including in your resume is relevant or interesting to your target audience — the employer you want to hire you now? How much jargon from your old job does your *nex...
 
  Stop with the bad resume advice
by Dawn Bugni - Oct, 2011
I worked with a client recently. We spoke on the phone several times before she engaged my services. I had also provided a few samples, so she knew the type of document I produced and was confident in my capabilities and knowledge of best practices for this crazy, competitive job market. Shortly after our intake conversation, I received a polite email from her. “Hi Dawn, I just spoke to a friend of mine … He said that...
 
  Does your resume miss out on the latest trends?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Oct, 2011
Writing your resume for the first time in years? Struggling to get a response after sending it out to employers? Whether you’re aware of it or not, resume trends have changed substantially, and the document you send out will compete with better-designed resumes that quickly spark employer interest. Ignoring these trends in format and writing style can make it harder for your resume to catch a hiring manager’s eye. The wa...
 
  Empowering Success
by Miriam Salpeter - Oct, 2011
How often are you assuming too much? It’s something you need to think about when you’re engaged in a job hunt. There’s a plant sale in a neighborhood near where I live. I’ve been seeing signs for it. They say, “At the Kingsly Club House.” That’s the only direction or address the signs provide. I guess we’re supposed to know where that is…Or, at least, the organizers assume we all know how to look it up online. It occurre...
 
  Does Anyone Care About Your Resume Font?
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2011
Last week AOL Jobs interviewed me for an article about fonts and asked me which fonts were preferable for resumes. While many fonts including Arial, Arial Narrow, Times New Roman, and Calibri are fine, others really have no place on a resume. But what struck me as interesting were some of the comments from frustrated job seekers saying the font shouldn’t matter. And maybe it shouldn’t. But it does. Recruiters and hiring...
 
  Don’t throw your computer out the window
by Hallie Crawford - Oct, 2011
I hear this all the time from career coaching clients, “I submitted my resume online and when I copied and pasted it to the form, the formatting was completely lost and it looked like junk.” I know what this is like. This has happened to me before too, and it can drive you nuts! You need to realize that employers knows this happens. I imagine they give some leeway when it comes to formatting when you have submitted your res...
 
  How Long Should My Resume Be?
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2011
This may just be the No. 1 question I am asked regarding resumes. People seem to think that the length of a resume plays a key factor in whether or not the resume gets read. But the reality is that resumes rarely get read, no matter how short or long they are. At least not in their entirety. The length of your resume is not what’s most important. What’s most important is the quality of the content. Most hiring managers s...
 
  How to Fix Four Common Resume Mistakes
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2011
I review a lot of resumes. And most of them have at least one of four major problems related to content, style, and form. Does your resume fall into one or more of these categories? If so, it may be time to perform a checkup on your resume to improve the overall health of your job-search campaign. The job description. These resumes list job responsibilities galore and often look like the writer literally cut and pasted thei...
 
  Résumé Formats: What is Acceptable “Attire”?
by Norine Dagliano - Oct, 2011
Ensuring that your résumé format works in every situation is a bit tricky. Do you create it using MS Word or is an alternate word-processing program acceptable? Is it okay to include tables, graphs, shaded text boxes, and/or borders? How about color and graphics? Yes, I do have a dating analogy to answer those questions! Suppose you accept a date with an outdoorsman who wants to take you hiking? Obviously the proper atti...
 
  How to Use a Reference Letter in a Job Search
by Marcia Robinson - Oct, 2011
Knowing how to use a reference letter in a job search is good strategy. A reference letter could be the thing that sets you apart from the other applicants. Job seekers who want a competitive advantage should definitely consider using a reference letter or two in the job search. Although recruiters have their own biases when reading a reference letter in the job search, most agree that using a reference letter the wrong wa...
