  5 Ways You Can Successfully Move From Being a Business Owner to an Executive
by Lisa Rangel - Mar, 2015
Business owners typically have the skills they need to be an executive for another company. They have most likely been involved in every area of their business, know about their particular expertise and can lead a group of people. However, moving from a business owner to an executive for another company is not the easiest transition to make. Whereas many executives have been climbing up the traditional career ladder for dec...
  Proofreading Resumes on Paper
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
I have often ranted about the complete uselessness of electronic grammar checkers and mentioned the need for manual proofreading, rather than relying on electronic spellcheckers, but I am also against proofreading a resume on the computer instead of printing it out. Here are my top five reasons for advocating manual proofreading, with paper in your hand: No matter how carefully you look, onscreen you are going to miss the...
  Your Resume Is Your Brochure
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
I have a friend in marketing who often counsels companies that their brochures and websites are their “resumes to the world,” letting customers know how great the company is. By the same token, you should view your resume as your brochure to the world, or at least that part of the world consisting of recruiters and hiring managers. Think about a brochure, maybe for that car or home you always wanted, that really drew your a...
  Multi-syllable Words in a Resume: Where the Danger Lies
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
We all like potential employers to be aware of our intelligence and education, especially in scientific, technical, and academic fields. However, a resume is not and should not be a vocabulary test. Your goal as a job applicant is to communicate clearly and succinctly. That goal can be undermined by using four and five syllable words inappropriately or by loading the resume with multi-syllable words that are not actually neces...
  Resume Dilemma: You Have Too Much to Offer
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
An IT professional responded to one of my blog posts by stating that he contributes so much to his company that his experience bursts the bounds of a resume. He was not overqualified so much as over-experienced. He offered too much value to an employer. Someone who brings too much value to a company usually falls into one or more of the following categories. First, while their job title has not changed, they have taken on m...
  Demilitarizing Your Military Resume for a Civilian Career
by Adrienne Erin - Feb, 2015
You might be an 0311 — ground pounder — in the United States Marine Corps for eight years. Maybe you’re a Navy Corpsman, with more field experience than any hospital internship could have ever provided. Or perhaps you’re a Gunnery Sergeant, training new recruits from dawn to, well, dawn. Leaving the military can be as much of a culture shock as enlisting. But don’t worry; your military resume will transfer to a civilian car...
  4 Ways to Make Your Resume Mobile Friendly
by Lisa Rangel - Feb, 2015
One of the job hunting trends we’re seeing in 2015 is the rise of mobile recruiting. While moving in the direction of mobile has been going on for some time, a 2014 LinkedIn report suggests that because candidates have become so keen on looking for jobs on their phones that companies are starting to put forth more effort in their mobile recruiting efforts. What does this mean for you? The bad news is if you aren’t already u...
  4 Executive Resume Rules You Should Break
by Lisa Rangel - Feb, 2015
We’ve recently talked about how to qualify job search advice online. While most of it is written with good intentions, not all of it should be taken into account. One such example is when blogs and articles talk about common “rules” you should follow on your resume in order to get an executive position. You know which rules we’re talking about – keep it to one page, stretch the dates of employment if you were without work,...
  The Top 10 Executive Resume Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2015
I have been looking at executive resumes for years, first as an HR VP managing the recruitment process and then more recently in my role as President of Blue Sky Resumes. Over the years, I’ve seen executive candidates make many of the same mistakes over and over again, mistakes that cost them great opportunities, and yet are easily rectified. I’ve boiled the list down to my top 10 and I hope it helps you to refine your own...
  4 Resume Mistakes No One Mentions: Format
by Robin Schlinger - Feb, 2015
Last week’s blog addressed four common content mistakes that you should avoid. This week, I focus on format mistakes. You probably already know to avoid elaborate formatting which wastes space and also confuses electronic applicant tracking systems. Here are four additional format mistakes that are often overlooked: Resume Mistake #1. Creating a second or third page that has only one or two lines of content. A multi-page r...
