Is your resume
working for you or against you?
Abridged: The FINANCIAL IRVINE, CA --
Are you unemployed?
Are you seeking a job? Do you want to change your job? No matter which
question fits you, its important to make sure your resume is effective and
working for you.
Every person has special talents which may be a valuable resource for a
company. According to recruitment managers, the most common mistake in a job
search is when your talents and skills are underestimated. More often than
not the reason is a poorly written resume. Your resume is a powerful
instrument stating who you are. You will never get a second chance to make a
first impression. That is why you must pay attention to the documentation
you send in to a prospective employer.
Keep in mind, a lot of information can be gathered from a resume, so it's
good when a resume gives detailed information about your special talents and
related experience. Always take time when writing your resume - do not rush
through it. It shows the employer that you care. If you are not able to
create your own, there are many different resources online to help you.
present distant experience in a resume
Abridged: Enquirer.com LAS VEGAS, NV --
There are a number of
strategies you can employ as a seasoned professional to avoid aging your
candidacy. Include only relevant and recent experience. Hiring managers are much
more interested in what you have done recently.
Be sure to focus on the last 10 or so years of your career, particularly if you
are applying for a position that doesn't necessitate more experience. If you are
a senior executive it's possible the hiring manager will be looking for a
seasoned candidate expected to have 20+ years of experience. The key is to
present the amount of experience that is relevant to your current career
interests and pursuits.
Organize your information carefully. Prioritize your content putting the most
important information on the top of your resume. Don't date your education if it
ages you. Include training and current skills. Include any relevant classes,
workshops or seminars you have attended. This tells the hiring manager you have
continued to learn and bring new and up-to-date skills. Pay particular attention
to communicating that you have current technical skills.
Recession's impact on the job market
-- There is a lot of hoopla over the recession. Or coming recession. But the
truth is that the job market is just fine, according to Penelope Trunk who
writes the Brazen Careerist blog. The health of today's job market is not so
much a function of economic indicators as it is a function of demographic
Employers are also receiving fewer hours of work per person from post-Boomers
because of their focus on family (Gen X) and entrepreneurship (Gen Y). Due to
these factors, the employee shortage is increasing. Employees will be in high
demand for the next decade and demand will continue to be strong. Polls
conducted by Robert Half show that most companies will continue to ramp up
So listen to talk of recession, but don't let it get you down. There are a few
precautions you should take in case you get laid off or downsized. But really,
don't decrease your expectations for your job just because housing prices are
tanking and hedge-fund managers are suffering. Keep your chin up, and your
expectations for your employment up as well. This might just be a surprisingly
great time for your career.
Sharpen your aim when
job hunting online
Abridged: WSJ Digital Network
LOS ANGELES, CA --
As Internet job boards continue to evolve, it can pay to stay current on the
latest job search tools and tactics. By learning how to use them, job
hunters may be able to boost their chances of securing interviews. When an
ad lists a hiring contact, research the person's background and make a
special connection - in addition to distributing your resume on job boards
and career websites.
Donnetta Walker, 31, emailed a recruiter who was cited in a job ad she saw
online. She found his email address through Google and wrote about how they
were connected on the networking site LinkedIn.com, among other topics. They
exchanged emails, and the recruiter requested her resume.
Sending it, she mentioned the ad, which sought a project manager at a
telecommunications software provider near her Atlanta home. A few days later the recruiter
arranged an interview for her, and she's waiting to hear back. She credits
the tactic for getting her foot in the door. Whether or not she gets hired,
she says, "I would do it again.”
Use keywords that
demonstrate your value
Abridged: The Wall Street Journal
TX -- The problem with many resumes is that they read like biographies. Many
companies don't really care about your life story. Employers want to know if
hiring you will be valuable to them. That's where keywords come in.
"Keywords are words that show one can produce results."
Job hunters should present key phrases like "driving gross" or "increased
efficiency" in a prominent way, so that they stand out when the resume gets
past the computer and is viewed by human eyes. A prospective employer wants
to be able to determine within 10 seconds what value you bring to the table.
Think of the top of your resume as a billboard sign, painted with keywords
designed to draw attention!
You need to highlight the work skills that qualify you specifically for the
job that you're targeting. When applying for a position in which you will
compete with hundreds of other applicants, with the right keywords backed
with solid experience and accomplishments, your resume will earn the
attention it deserves.
