  Technical Resumes: Five Steps to a Better Resume
by Robin Schlinger - May, 2016
Many technical resumes suffer because engineers, developers, researchers, and other technical job applicants have trouble communicating what they do. Many of them are more at home drawing a diagram than writing; and many are used to communicating with their peers at a level where a hiring manager or recruiter is simply lost. Still, the hiring managers and recruiters are the ones who will ultimately examine a resume and decide...
 
  Job Search: What's Your ROI Message?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
No employer is going to hire you because you’re a good person–likable, presentable, etc. Not even if you really need a job, sad to say. You’ll have to do better than that if you want to land the new job you’re after. What you need to consider is why the prospective employer should care, why they would think you could be the answer they’re looking for. That’s it, pure and simple. Of course, it’s really not quite that simple....

Interview preparation is hard work. You need to practice your STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) responses. You have to vet out possible behavioral questions and craft compelling responses to them. You must ensure that your image reflects your professionalism—your shirt must be ironed, and your shoes must be polished! Be sure that you are focusing your efforts in the right area, by narrowing in on what the interviewer...
 
  Ask Deb: Preparing Recent Grads For The Workforce
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2016
I recently interviewed four candidates for an entry-level position on my team. One thing that is absolutely clear at the end of this experience is that college career centers are giving their students bad, outdated advice! All four of these young people had objective statements on their resumes, and presented themselves in the same bland manner. They talked about their academic achievements, and how great they were, but they n...

  Why Is My Resume Not Working? 2 Words!
by Jean Cummings - May, 2016
It's been a long time since anything's been simple about executive resumes. People ask questions such as: should my resume be two pages or one, can you have three or more pages, how should it look, can I have a functional resume?

Well, the simple answer to all these questions is, drum roll...
 
  Resume & Job Interview Black Hole
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Have you ever submitted your resume for an opening that matched your qualifications and never received an acknowledgment? Or have you interviewed with a company and never been informed as to the outcome (which obviously meant they hadn’t picked you!)?

  The Most Common Resume Lies
by Robin Schlinger - May, 2016
If you ever thought about stretching the truth on your resume, you may want to rethink the strategy. The statistics on the amount of lying in resumes are stunning: one study claims that 53% of applicants lie. However, that is not a green light for joining the liars.

The timing of many job search preparation actions and activities is critical....
 
  References 101: The Secret To Winning the Job
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
Are your ears burning? I know why: An HR person or recruiter is calling your references. Maybe you applied for a new job, or maybe someone’s got an eye on you and he or she is calling around doing intel. References are a very important step in the job-search process.
