Employer follow thru, or the lack there of.

I think what is annoying about the job search game is no follow thru from employers. I am fine with being told I did not get the job. Just tell me, and let me know one way or the other. Especially if you say that is what you are going to do. I am sure I am not the only one who has experienced this.

Resume (and profile) rule #1

Ok, so what's rule #1 on resumes? It is simply: Remember what they are for.

They are to make the reader think they'd like to learn more about you and/or to meet you. That's it.

A good resume gets someone to call you to learn more.
Period.

They do NOT get you hired.

You do NOT need to tell every detail and life story.

You need to write it in summary form, with results and with the goal of wanting the reader to think: that

Feeling Fustrated!

Always sound professional, courteous and respectful. Make sure you project that you have had previous experience with the person you are desiring to speak with and that they are expecting your call.
Works like a charm.
