  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...
 
  Have You Considered Working a Temp Job?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
If you’ve thought before about working a temp job, here’s some further ammo for considering it. Today the US unemployment rate rose to 9.8%, the highest this country has experienced since June 1983. That’s 15.1 million Americans now out of work. According to the US Labor Department, another 263,000 jobs were lost last month, higher than expected. Additionally, if those who were already laid off and have had to settle fo...
 
  Is There a Work Gap on Your Resume?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
Are your prospects dimming because you’ve been out of work for 3 months, 6 months, even longer? I talk with job seekers every day about their resume and job hunting strategies. Many are in this same boat and rightly concerned. As the economy continues to tank, I predict that the out-of-work gap period will only grow longer for many job hunters, making the search even harder for them. In the past, when a job hunter was o...
 
  What’s an Employer Really Looking For in Your Resume?
by Teena Rose - Nov, 2010
Most job-seekers write their resumes with one thing in mind—themselves! They toot their own horn so loud the interviewer is blown away by the sound. The “I did this” and “I achieved that” approach is important, of course. The hiring manager wants to know what you’ve accomplished in your previous line of work and how you can benefit his or her company in the new position. Reading Between the Lines BUT—he or she is also lo...
 
  Students Must Stand Out To Make Out
by Bob Roth - Nov, 2010
When college students simply tell employers what they can do and what they have done, they are putting themselves in the middle of a very large pool of job applicants. However, the best candidates will stand out when they describe the exceptional “results” that they have previously achieved. That?s important because employers believe that past results are the best predictors of future results. Which statement of stu...
 
  How boring is your resume summary?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Nov, 2010
Have you struggled with putting your brand into your resume, writing a profile paragraph that looks great, but is failing to get the attention you deserve? If you’ve spent considerable time (or money) on a lackluster resume that serves up the same information as everyone else’s, it might be time to rewrite your introductory summary to get better results. You’re boring hiring managers if your resume contains an opening pa...
