It's about Results! (rule #2 for profiles and resumes)

I've been browsing through a lot of Jobcase profiles this morning - particularly ones of folks in the community that are finding difficulty in achieving the next job they desire. There's a trend sticking out to me that is a large mistake most people make. An easy one to correct. And a very impactful one after you do correct it.

Ready for the insight - here it is...effort doesn't get rewarded - RESULTS DO. Of course I know its hard to get results without effort. But, no-one drafts football players because they worked hard at the gym - they get hired for yardage gained in college, sacks made, etc. The Rock doesn't get crazy paydays just because he is talented, its because he generated box office hits - so the expectation is that he can do that again.

When you provide details about a position in a profile or resume, start with the results and follow with the effort (if you really need to state effort). "Consistently garner tips over 20% and generated 100 positive yelp reviews for my restaurant as a lead Waiter" stands out on a waiter resume way more than a list of duties and deeds performed. I, as a restaurant manager & potential employer, see that customers like you and see how that translates to my business success. Or, "Hired 200 employees who exceeded projected retention rates" - is much better than "screened applicant resumes and interviewed as part of talent function in XX company". I, as potential employer hiring you for my HR group, see that you got your job done right - good hires! And now I want to talk to you about how you can do that for me.

You get it. If you are hiring someone for a role you want someone who will drive results for you. Working hard, having effort, saying how you did something fills space but isn't really what its about is it. Its about results. Like it or not, thats what stands out. So - when you as a candidate want to represent your past experience - focus on what resulted from your efforts. And have fun thinking about it too. I bet when you step back you'll realize you have been even more effective in your past than what you thought. And maybe you might think of times you weren't. And when you begin to be more aware of mapping effort to results - then you are on your way to really improving the trajectory of your worklife.

Hope this helps. If it resonates with you - go to your profile now by clicking on your pic in upper right corner here, update descriptions to start sentences with what you achieved and then perhaps how you did it. Then hit the generate resume button on your profile. I think you'll like what you see.....

( - I'll post rule #1 tmw - we talk about it often on Jobcase, but will rewrite about it soon...)

As a woman over 50, I have many job experiences and they fall into the retail, office assistant, and teacher's aide catagories. I have always done well at each job and the only reasons I have ever quit a job was due to a transfer of my husband, child raising years, and taking care of elderly parents. To get back in the game how far back do I need to cite in my resume? Also, what about stores that are now closed and the management has scattered . How do I reference situations such as these?

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!

If you’re unemployed, now is the time to do something! Volunteering allows you to network and potentially get your foot in the door with a future employer.

Try volunteering for a nonprofit organization or do pro-bono work in a job that uses your skills. It will build up your resume with current experience. It also fills in gaps of time that you've been out of work on your resume. You also never know, you might just meet someone who will lead you to a job opening elsewhere.

According to a study conducted by LinkedIn they revealed that, 42% of hiring managers say they view volunteer experience as equivalent to formal work experience. So head out there and volunteer!

To search for a volunteer position near you use the 4 easy steps below:

1.Click on “Jobs & Companies” at the [top of the page] (http://www.jobcase.com/jobs/search) 2.Enter the word volunteer into the search field that says Job title and then enter your location 3.Click on the blue hour glass symbol to search 4.Once the list is up, click on “View Job" of any you are interested in and then apply.

Happy volunteering!
