  Build a Strong Reputation – Communicate Minor Achievements
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Build a strong reputation by making the most of minor achievements. In my seminars, I am fond of discussing the importance of perception. You could be the smartest, most talented individual your organization has ever hired, but if people don’t like you or value what you have to offer, you’re dead in the water. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to project a positive image. When you meet people in person, make sure you...
 
  The Non-Techno-Geek’s Ultimate Guide to Using #HashTags In Your Job Search
by Michelle Dumas - May, 2015
#HashTags? Seriously? Why should I care? I hear the objections starting to run through your head already. They ran through mine too. In fact, the truth is that despite the fact that I run an online business, until recently I had only the most rudimentary knowledge of what a hashtag was. In the expectation that I am not the most naive non-techno-geek out there, and many of my readers may feel the same way, here is how...

  Your Resume and Your Portfolio
by Robin Schlinger - Apr, 2015
I have many clients in creative careers that demand online or print portfolios: writers, graphic artists, photographers and web designers, among others. When hiring managers or recruiters look at job applicants for communications or design positions, they expect to see samples of previous work at some point. Any creative person about to engage in a job search should make sure to accumulate physical or electronic samples of...
 
  Job Searches: Dealing with the Wrong Kind of Help
by Robin Schlinger - Apr, 2015
As much as you may wish to keep private your lack of work or your unhappiness with your current job, the people who care about you will notice. In many ways that is a good thing. When they become a part of your job search team, you have more chances of finding someone who needs an employee just like you. But how do you ensure that well-meaning friends and family offer the right kind of help? Here are some frustrating job searc...
 
  Four Words to Avoid on Resumes or Cover Letters
by Robin Schlinger - Apr, 2015
Can’t “Can’t” is the first word to avoid on your resume because your resume should show you at your best, outlining your achievements, skills, education and overall fit for the job you want. If you “cannot” travel, work on weekends, handle certain tasks or function in rush situations, do not share that information on your resume or cover letter. That is a conversation for later, perhaps during the interview. If the job post...
 
  Keeping the Resume Real
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
The goal of a resume is to get you to the next stage, an interview; and a great resume is written in a way that allows you to ace the interview and possibly move on to the stage after that, a job offer. None of that may happen if you make these three mistakes. Recently a blogger on resumes suggested that all tasks in a job lend themselves to being described as an accomplishment. He advised a college student who handed out...
 
  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...
