by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
If you’ve been doing your homework about how to write an effective resume, you’ve seen a recurring theme: you have to quantify your experience. Although most people understand the general idea of this, I find that job seekers often struggle with applying this idea to writing their resumes. Here are 3 easy ways to do it: How many? Sometimes our responsibilities don’t sound that impressive until we start detailing how much...
 
  4 Simple Things That Hurt Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
When we review people’s resumes, we often see a basic document with lackluster content and outdated formatting. These are pretty common, but what we also see are resumes that contain some pretty fundamental mistakes. Here are some examples of things to not do: 1. Under the document properties section of your resume, make sure it shows you as the author of your documents. Having someone else’s name there, particularly if...
 
  Avoiding Company-Specific Lingo on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I recently met a woman who had started a new job with a Fortune 50 company several months ago. While she enjoyed some aspects of her new position, she was having a very difficult time adjusting to the culture of her new company due to the other employees constantly using acronyms she didn’t understand. The situation is so bad that every day she writes down a list of terms that she doesn’t grasp and asks her assistant to expl...
 
  How to Mention Unrelated Work Experience on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Many candidates who come to us for resume help have the same question. They have years of professional work experience, but a lot of it isn’t relevant to the position they’re currently seeking. On the one hand, they don’t want to waste resume space detailing work that doesn’t relate to their application. On the other hand, they don’t want to omit years of work that developed them as a professional. THE RIGHT PHRASE I us...
 
  Should You Be Worried About Temp Jobs On Your Resume?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
In the midst of the Great Recession, many workers have found themselves cobbling together temporary or short-term jobs in order to pay the bills. These workers often become very concerned about how this work activity will appear on their resumes. If this is a concern of yours, take heart—many people are in the exact same situation. The first thing you should know is that the current economy has forced many workers to take...
 
  You do what for a living?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Some of you out there have nice, easily explainable jobs like “professor” or “salesman” or “consultant”. Others of you have job titles that people either totally don’t grasp or think are kind of odd. As a resume writer, I fall into the second category, with reactions to my vocation ranging from, “Wait, is that a euphemism for your being unemployed?” to “Why would anyone ever pay someone to write their resume?” Most people...
 
  Resume Rescue: Tame My Resume From Long and Shaggy to Short and Chic
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2010
When it comes to resumes, longer is rarely better. In today's fast-paced world, hiring managers generally spend less than 15 seconds looking at a resume. They want to be able to see your key differentiators quickly, and they will rarely look past page two to find the information they need. So how do you keep your resume concise without sacrificing clarity or quality? Here are some common resume problems that can result in a do...

by Judith Lindenberger - Oct, 2010
If you are looking for a job, writing a resume is one of the first steps you need to take. The goal of a resume is to get you in the door with prospective employers. And, you have about 30 seconds to grab the reader's attention. As the former Manager of Staffing for a Fortune 500 company, certified career counselor, and board member of several nonprofit organizations, I have reviewed thousands of resumes. Based upon my exper...
 
  The Single Most Important Resume Item
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2010
I recently moderated a panel discussion of prominent CEOs from three very different industries -- professional services, social media and nonprofit. While they each gave excellent advice to the students in the audience who were interested in their particular fields, the CEOs all came together on one key point: All employers in all industries are seeking one major resume item: leadership. Why is leadership so important?...
 
  Be Choosy About What You Want
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Oct, 2010
Years ago, I worked in the hospitality industry hiring people for a wide variety of positions. Job seekers frequently approached me by saying, “I’ll take anything.” That was one of the biggest turnoffs. It wasn’t my responsibility to identify the right job for every person who walked through the door. It was their responsibility to figure that out before the interview conversation ever happened. There is the misconcep...
