  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...
 
  How Many Years of Employment Experience Should I List on My Resume?
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2011
Deciding how much of your career chronology to report on your resume can be a tricky thing. If you focus on information too far in the past, an employer may quickly figure out how old you are and possibly discriminate against you based on your age. But if you don’t report early career experience, a hiring manager may determine that your omission was deceptive once they meet you, and this could damage your candidacy as well....
 
  Avoid the Top Ten Resume Mistakes
by Peter Newfield - Sep, 2011
You’re sitting at your desk, the coffee is cold, and you decide that your boss has annoyed you for the last time. You’re going to look for another job and get the hell out of this place. You turn to the blank computer screen in front of you and start writing your resume. How hard can it be to write your own resume? Apparently, it’s a task not to be undertaken lightly. Most of the resumes circulating out in cyberspace and sn...

The key to resume success is to boost your current qualifications—even if you’re on a low rung of the corporate ladder. Giving yourself veteran appeal is easier than you think. 1.
