Yall remember how as kids adults used to tell us “it’s not what you say but how you say it”

Well baby. That applies to building your resume as well. 😭

Instead of saying, “I did” or “took care” of something, let’s leave that at the door & spice it up a bit. ✨

You: -Performed -Handled -Completed -Managed -Accomplished -Processed -Administrated

Change it up! Just cause it’s your resume doesn’t mean it has to be bland.

Resume Building 101

So you have everything on your resume that you should have right? What about the things you shouldn’t have on there? 🤔

Check these 4 things out that you need to remove immediately so you can get hired! 👏🏽

📝1.) Your full address! I cannot express this enough that it is not their business. Your full address falls under confidential information.

📝2.) Your personal interest! As much as you care about them, which is okay! It’s a time and a place for everything and your resume is not one of them.

📝3.) Images. 100% not necessary unless required for the application to the position. They can see you when they interview you baby.

📝4.) A job from 10+ years ago. Take er off! Unless that job directly ties to your desired position you don’t need it!

It’s time to get hired at that job you want. It’s yours, go get it and update that resume!!! 📝

Did this help? Comment below if you have questions! 💭⬇️

Teaching an old resume new tricks (yes, it IS possible!)..

Let’s face it.. No one likes writing their resume, NO ONE. And sometimes we fall into the habit of putting together a resume in a hurry, and not stopping to take the time to check details like spelling, grammar, formatting, etc. And while you may think that your extensive and impressive work experience is enough to outweigh these types of things, unfortunately it’s not. Your resume is the first representation of yourself that a potential employer sees, this is the first impression you’re making and you want to be sure to stand out from the rest of the resumes on the employer’s desk. Taking the extra minute or two needed to hit the “spell check” button and make the appropriate corrections could make a difference on whether your resume is pulled out of the pile. But by not taking the time to format properly, align fonts, or double check that tenses are written correctly could also land your resume into the “not interested” pile. And please resist the urge to have different colors in your resume. You may think that it would be more visually appealing but, as a recruiter, I find it to be very distracting resulting in it being less likely to be given the same amount of reading time. And just think, if you do it right the first time how much easier it will be going forward when all you’ll have to do is update it with your most recent experience? Make sure you still are paying attention to formatting when making additions. You always want to make sure that it’s cohesive and reads easily. So where do you start? Me personally, I always try to start by making a list (I’m big on “to-do” lists and checklists) of what highlights I am presenting, and what I’m trying to accomplish in writing my resume before sending to an employer. Here’s a start.. Objective (you ideally want this to be tailored towards the type of role you’re applying for) Relevant work experience/timelines Education & coursework Awards or honors Volunteering Features/Skills Benefits Accomplishments Formatting (bullets vs. paragraphs) Given that I’m a recruiter, I am frequently asked to review resumes of friends, family etc. and I agree to do it as long as they’re ok with me making changes or being honest. So lastly, send your resume to someone whose opinion you value and trust (I suggest a former manager, teacher, recruiter, family member or friend) and ask them for honest opinion. But you have to be open to hearing what they’re recommending and not take offense, they’re just trying to help.

Now, get out there and teach our resume the new trick of being a dynamite, standout resume! Here are a few resources for you: https://www.myperfectresume.com/ https://www.resume-now.com/ https://resumegenius.com/ https://www.careeronestop.org/JobSearch/Resumes/ResumeGuide/WritingYourResume/writing-your-resume.aspx https://www.thebalance.com/how-to-write-a-resume-2063336 https://uptowork.com/blog/how-to-make-a-resume https://www.livecareer.com/how-to-write-a-resume https://www.pomona.edu/administration/career-development/how-to/write-a-resume

The STRUGGLE IS REAL!!!

I am writing my first resume and every word I put down on the page seems like a make or break. I second guess what I write a lot. I must have done like 30 revisions at this point. AHHHHHHHHH!!! Initially I think it takes a very loooong time to write a great cover letter and resume, but after that I am sure it will just be small changes here and there right? Right now it’s just a struggle. How many of you found it stressful to write your resume?
