Today, I'm going to share with you a great way to get some objective feedback on your resume (as opposed to subjective feedback from friends and family, which, while they mean well, can be misguided).
First, some important background information:
Thinking of switching careers or moving to a different company, but it’s been a while?
If you’re just getting back into the interview “game” after spending 10, 20, or even 30 years in your previous position, it may seem a bit more challenging than you recall.
Sometimes interviewers, recruiters, HR reps, and hiring managers don't call you back -- even when they promised they would.
When this happens, it’s normal for you to follow up and check the status of your application. But it is important not to sound so needy to avoid ruining your chances of getting hired.
Are you having difficulties in creating a resume that will grab the attention of the hiring manager from the get-go? If so, it’s best to be aware of the most common resume mistake people make to increase your chances of getting called in for an interview.
Actually, it's not a "mistake" as such – most people do it, so I prefer to think of it as an "untapped opportunity". But call it what you will.
Whether your tech savvy or not, I’m sure you’ve heard about some people making big money with digital coins. There's been a lot of talk, and hype, about cryptocurrency lately.
In fact, I just caught wind that an online job board is creating its own digital currency, based on the same blockchain technology as Bitcoin.
Personally, I’m not very optimistic about Bitcoin or any cryptocurrency – at least not right now.
Whether you like it or not, you may be using some of the most common resume clichés out there. If this is the case, you may want to scratch them out and revise your resume to your advantage.
Today, I’d like to share seven resume clichés that make recruiters cringe.
If you’ve included any on yours, don't worry – they’re called cliché’s because almost everyone uses them.
Just how do you set yourself apart from all the other applicants when it comes to your resume?
As you might recall from my previous messages, most resumes are more or less ignored by HR personnel and hiring managers.
Do you have a job interview coming up in the next few days? How are you preparing yourself for this important day?
If you’ve recently been called to interviews but didn’t get an offer right after, then you might be doing something wrong while you’re talking with the hiring manager. To stop this vicious cycle, take time to evaluate your job interviews in the past and figure out what went wrong in the first place.
To help you out, here's something I want you to be mindful about in your next interview:
I have a question for you:
When was the last time you successfully completed the entire process of submitting your résumé, being called into an interview, acing the interview and then getting the job offer?
Has it been a few years?
This happened to Judy, recently – and perhaps it has happened to you too.
Judy showed up for another job interview recently. It was for a project manager at a nearby company – less than a ten-minute drive from home.
Judy prepped hard for it. She walked in confident. She asked great questions. She knew how to tell her story well. And, this time around, she knew she had made a great impression.
