SOOOO tired of the same old CRAP!!!

This book actually looks GOOD & you can borrow it for FREE from the library woot! It says, "How do I get my resume in front the hiring manager, and how do I use the Internet to do it? Includes over 100 samples of real-life resumés and cover letters, founded in real-life experience without the rigid resume-writing rules of other guides, ideal for all job seekers, from new grads to the laid off worker, new mothers to senior citizens." It looks like it's for today's generational job seekers and not from the 90's which is refreshing, haha. NO more Idiots Guide to Resumes for me...all set with those books. I feel like all I find is the SAME information out there about resumes and job hunting, so I am excited to get my hands on this one. Plus, why spend the 10 bucks on Amazon when the library is freeeeeeee?!

Did you say you were a hard worker?

True, you may be the most hardworking person of all time, but by saying, “I am a hard worker” during an interview (or on your resume) you are selling yourself short. NO one wants to be that person who is generic and unoriginal, because chances are the interviewers have it heard that description a few hundred times before. Instead make yourself stand out!

The next time you are asked why they should hire you, use specific examples that will demonstrate HOW you are hard working without ever saying it. You can also move this info over to your resume as well.

For example someone could say… "I created [insert project or accomplishment] from scratch within a 1-month period which in turn [insert amazing result].” Be as specific as you can to showcase your skills.

Remember to stand out and SHOW why you are a hard worker instead of simply stating it.

Good luck!

"What is Your Greatest Weakness?"

During your endless round of interviews, you will undoubtedly be asked what your weaknesses are. You do not want to tell the potential employer that you don't have any, and you definitely don't want to give positives as a weakness ("I work too hard!")

This article actually gives excellent advice on how to answer this question, and the most important part is, they tell you to follow up the weakness with steps you are taking to correct it. It tells the employer that you know your areas of improvement and work to implement a fix to these deficiencies.

I didn't write this article, I am simply sharing because I found it useful.

Should I just quit BEFORE they fire me??

My job is NOT GOING WELL!!! I am worried it will look worse on my resume if they fire me (which they definitely are) or if I should just quit and leave on my own. Would that be better? What should I do?? Please help!

More tips from the inside - Entry-Level resume writing

When looking for a job, the first goal is to grab the attention of the recruiter with your resume. A disorganized resume that is difficult to read will put you at the bottom of the call list or eliminated depending on the total number of applicants there are for the job and the number of positions they are looking to fill. Your jobs should be listed "newest first". When I get into a crunch, I pull resumes rejected for significant "work history gaps". 9 out of 10 resumes I look at who had been coded for "no job in last 5+ years" has their resume formatted wrong and the computer picked up the first job listed on the PDF or word document.

When writing a resume, you need to be self aware of what you did and how you contributed to the company. I just saw a resume where the person worked at a large food store warehouse (and they spelled the name of the employer wrong). According to the resume the only thing this applicant did for the company was "make lots of salads".

You should take the job you did and figure out the steps. For example, order receiving to determine workload (what salads I am making that day). picking ingredients from pick slips (recipe cards, etc.) Measurement and assembly. Staging product for display (consider salads in the case at the deli), etc. Maybe you found a faster way to get the job done by doing the tasks in a certain order. This is a contribution you should list.
