  Career Need a Boost? Give ‘Em Something to Talk About!
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
It’s easy to feel lost in the crowd these days. We’re often smothered in a crush of candidates for jobs we want or sequestered among a sea of cubicles. The pace of the daily grind makes face-to-face contact with our bosses brief and infrequent. Feeling faceless is dispiriting. It’s important to be seen. Acting out, complaining, or decorating our cubicles like Mardi Gras take us down the wrong path. A better strategy is to...
 
  Four Easy Ways To Instantly Make Your Resume More Appealing
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
Most of the resumes I come across could use more focus, better organization, and sharper wording. While professional services are ideal to add these qualities and make your resume more persuasive and polished, it may not be an option at the time. You could spend time making your resume look more eye-catching and unique (e.g. crafting a career summary or even adding a bar graph showing growth in personal sales), but these aspec...
 
  #1 Piece of Resume Advice: Write For Your Audience
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
Whether you are writing a book, article, thesis, letter, or a resume, the same basic rule applies: Write for your audience (in this case, recruiters, hiring managers and your future boss). In the world of resume writing, that translates to two things. First, make your resume easy to read. If it is sloppy, crowded, bare or confusing, you need to take a step back and think about what your perfect employee’s resume would loo...
 
  Fast Forward Your Job Search
by Robin Ryan - Nov, 2010
When you are in Human Resources, everyone thinks you know everything there is to know about getting hired. Truth is, most HR folks stumble when implementing their own self-marketing efforts. Having coached numerous HR professionals, many find resume writing difficult and networking intimidating. So, if you think you are alone in finding job hunting a challenging task, think again. In today's tough job market, you must...
 
  Moving Up In Your Company? YOU Need A Resume, Too!
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
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 what was even more surprising was that they felt blindsided at this request from management! If you are thinking of applying for a higher position in your company, be prepared to present a new,...
 
  Five Things A Cover Letter Can Show That A Resume Can’t
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
These days, the professional cover letter has taken a backseat to its much more popular cousin, the resume. Although it is often seen as stuffy, antiquated, and even frivolous, the cover letter actually has the power to establish the all-important first impression. And what you put in that letter could be the catalyst that sets you apart and gets you an interview. Though many people underestimate the importance of a cove...
 
  Four Ways To Help Your Resume Pass The HR Screen-Out Phase
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
In most cases, before your resume even gets to a hiring manager’s desk, it is passed through a screen-out process that is designed to immediately eliminate candidates who do not meet the minimum requirements. This makes it a lot more efficient for companies to fill positions, but I can also leave qualified candidates out in the cold if their resumes do not display those clearly defined requirements. If you are wondering w...
 
  Switching Careers? How To Advertise Your Transferrable Skills
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
While doing what you love is important, bringing home a paycheck often forces people to make a decision between pursuing their dreams and putting food on the table. Plus, the changes in the economy are driving many workers to make a choice right now to change careers paths. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, nor is it impossible to find an equivalent job in a different industry. You just need to rewrite your resume to adv...
 
  Tuesdays Are Terrific! The Best Day And Time To Contact HR
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
Many job seekers focus solely on the “how” of contacting potential employers, but the “when” can be crucial to getting noticed as well. Contacting them when they are more likely to be alert and responsive (and not tired, hungry, or stressed) is all about timing. That includes planning the optimal time and day to contact HR (to either initiate contact, follow up after sending a resume, or follow up post-interview). Accord...
 
  4 Resolutions to Rock Your Job Search in 2010
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
OK, did you survive the past year? We all know 2009 was a devastating year economically for the US. The good news is that 2010 may see recovery in some sectors. The bad news is that the high unemployment rate will continue to be with us for quite some time. While there may continue to be fewer job openings, companies still do business and they still need talented employees to help them better compete during the coming ye...
