  LinkedIn is Not Your Online Resume
by Jill Kurtz - Jul, 2013
LinkedIn is the premiere online business networking site. As such, it is tempting to see your profile there as your online resume. There are a few key reasons why that thinking is off target and will prevent you from getting the most out of LinkedIn. Your resume and LinkedIn profile both speak about you, but they do so in different ways: Resumes are limited in length; there is no such constraint on LinkedIn. General...

by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jul, 2013
Want your resume to distinguish your leadership brand among competing candidates for C-suite or VP positions? Then ditch the boring language you’ve seen on many other executive resume summaries. Just because other resumes (both professional and self-written) employ a blend of monotonous, overused words doesn’t mean you have to follow suit.

  Dispelling Resume Myths—Myth #2: Using the Same Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2013
I can use the same resume to apply to every job that I want, right? Only if every job you apply to is exactly the same, with exactly the same criteria, requirements, and desired qualifications … What’s the likelihood of that? Not very likely… Target your resume to the position you want, but don’t be opposed to making small customizations when necessary. Making small changes can really help increase your candidacy a...
 
  Dispelling Resume Myths—Myth #1: My Resume Has to Be One Page
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2013
I heard that a resume should be only one page in length. Is that true? Nope, not really. Yes, if you have only one page’s worth of experience. Certainly don’t try to stretch it out to two pages. (hint, hint: my entry-level folks with a limited work history, I’m talking to you). Generally speaking, though—no, there is no resume rule that stipulates your resume can be only one page and that is it. Use two pages to ma...
 
  Why Legislating Resume Writing Is Wrong
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Jul, 2013
While I write resumes for a living, I realize (and prefer) that it isn’t “my way or the highway.” How bland of a career marketing world would it be if every resume was written by some formulaic approach? Unfortunately, though, myriad people seem to want to legislate resume writing into a tiny pigeonhole. As well, many social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Google Plus) conversations center on Do’s and...

by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2013

  How Many Years of Experience Should I Include on My Resume?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2013
Writing your resume and trying to figure out how far back you should go? I can help with that. In general, I advise my job seekers not to go back further than 10 to 15 years of work history. But are there exceptions to that “rule”? Absolutely. When is it OK to go back further than 10 to 15 years of career history on your resume? When you have relevant experience, but it isn’t recent. We work with job seekers who have e...

by Abby Locke - Jun, 2013
It seems like every time I turn around, there are more speculations and “predictions” about the economy.
