Resume Looking a Little Dated? We’ve Got You Covered.

When the document is updated and clearly worded, it’s much more likely that it will earn the attention of a hiring manager.

Why Graduates Should Not Use College Career Services

Graduation is imminent. Soon your career dreams will become realities — that is if you can land an interview. Most soon-to-be-grads haven’t pulled out their high school, fast-food resumes for four years. What worked then won’t work now, especially considering the hundreds of other similarly qualified job hunters in the same boat.

Want to Make an Impression on a Hiring Manager? Skip the Soft Skills On Your Resume

Do a little research on resume writing, and you’ll probably hear the idea of “soft skills” mentioned at least once or twice. But while you may be tempted to throw in a mention of “strong communication skills” in order to beef up your resume, don’t. This type of cliché addition is exactly the kind thing that will cause a recruiter to cringe. Truthfully, it is implied that you have clear communication skills. The ability to communicate is a trait that all professionals need to have. Furthermore, your hiring manager will find out whether you actually do possess these abilities as soon as they sit down to interview you. No need to take up precious space on your resume stating the obvious. Looking for some other items that you can delete off of your resume?

How to Avoid Common Resume Gaffes

When writing your resume you have a lot to think about. What are the skills that you use on a daily basis? How have you positively impacted your company? What font should you use? Is Comic Sans really off limits? (The answer, for the record, is yes). Given all of these things going through your mind when you are putting together your resume, it can be easy to overlook some of the simplest and most important aspects of crafting a great document.

Core Competencies Demystified

One of the most common questions that professional resume writers field is, “What, really, are core competencies?” The simple answer to this question is that these are keywords that reflect your skills in the workplace; however, the long-form answer is a bit more complex.

Creating a Positive First Impression

The goal of any great resume is to achieve a strong marketing message, meaning that readers know exactly what you have to offer and what you are looking for without you having to implicitly state your goals in an objective (which is outdated, but that’s a topic for another post). Typically, readers will look at a resume for a mere 30 or so seconds before tossing it into the yes, no, or maybe pile, so it is crucial that your document does a great job of reeling readers in. Core competencies are a great way to catch the attention of potential employers, as they are easy to peruse and provide a quick and detailed outline of your most valuable professional skills.
