I can eat hot or cold turkey sandwiches until a 20lb turkey is gone and then I break the wish bone and wish for more turkey.

NEVER enough (probably 4-5 days before freezing is a good idea though)

RESUME: CREATIVE WAYS TO LIST JOB SKILLS

List Job Skills Creatively On Your Resume

With the competition in the job market increasing for job seekers, it is crucial to grab the attention of the hiring manager if your resume has a chance. Employers are looking for resumes that showcase high quality skills and rich field experiences. To create a resume that stands out from the other candidates' resumes, focus on format and word choice.

A job candidate's skills and relevant knowledge are substantiated by the keywords they choose to use. Industry-specific core skills will enable a job candidate to successfully pass through an applicant tracking system (ATS), which is utilized by the majority of companies today to obtain the right candidates.

Each resume should be specific to the job you are applying for. You can easily locate the keywords a company is focused on by looking at the requirements listed for the job. If you have knowledge of, or experience using certain software programs listed in the job description, include them on your resume to draw employers' attention.

Simply highlighting keywords, however, is not enough to make your resume stand out. Due to the recent shift in resume trends, no longer are resumes merely a listing of jobs and duties. They are truly promotional materials. As such, it is no longer enough to say that you are a creative, motivational problem-solver. You need to demonstrate it. The challenge is greater for those who have been laid off or who have been out of work for an extended period of time. For these professionals, the task of proving that their skills are relevant can be more difficult than it is for other job seekers.

Job seekers need to add transferable skills that they've gained from paid and unpaid past experiences to their resumes. Transferable skills acquired during any activity from volunteer positions, classes, projects, parenting, hobbies and sports can be applicable to one's next job. By adding transferable skills to a resume, employers get a better understanding and broader picture of who they are hiring as well as the interests, values and experiences that the candidate brings to the table.

The idea is to explain your skills and experiences in a way that highlights any gains. Be specific and provide relevant statistics wherever you can. Revenue wins, client growth, and budget savings are easy to quantify and are impressive on your resume. Here are a few categories of skills you could include on your resume, along with unique ways to express them.

Interpersonal Communication

Jobs require teamwork. There will be constant exchanges with co-workers, and discussing and sharing ideas with supervisors. Employers want to know the level of communication skills you have and how well you work with others. The specific skills required will vary based on your position. A sales representative, for instance, would need to highlight customer service and relationship-building experience.

On your resume: writes clearly and concisely, listens attentively, negotiates/resolves differences, provides and asks for feedback, offers well-thought-out solutions, cooperates and works well with others, thrives in a collaborative environment.

Planning And Organization

If the job you want involves working on research projects and companywide campaigns, you want to show off your top-notch planning abilities. "Organization skills" may sound like an overused filler term, but those skills are the ones that will help you succeed. Show potential employers you've got what they're looking for by outlining your involvement in, and results from, current and previous projects.

On your resume: identifies and gathers appropriate resources, thoroughly researches background information, develops strategies, thinks critically to solve problems, coordinates and completes tasks, manages projects effectively, meets deadlines.

Management And Leadership

Although it may not always be easy to express them on a resume, management and leadership skills can be gained in a variety of conventional and unconventional ways.

Demonstrating your management abilities on paper requires you to think about what it is you do best as a leader and how you guide your fellow assiciates toward success. To give employers a better idea of what you've accomplished, discuss the size of the team and the scope of the projects you manage.

On your resume: teaches/trains/instructs, counsels/coaches, manages conflict, helps team members set and achieve goals, delegates effectively, makes and implements decisions, oversees projects.

Social Media

Social media is one of the most desired skills in a variety of job fields. Socially active organizations are more likely to attract top talent, drive new sales leads and better engage customers. Therefore, when employers look for new hires, they're also typically looking for new internal-brand ambassadors.

For positions directly involving work on corporate social media campaigns, hiring managers look for concrete numbers and metrics, including web traffic, audience reach and overall engagement.

On your resume: manages social media campaigns, measures and analyzes campaign results, identifies and connects with industry influencers, sparks social conversation within the brand's community, creates and executes content strategies, drives engagement and leads, enhances brand image through social presence.

Happy Friday Community! As we begin this Friday let us take a minute to show appreciation for the simple things in life. Often times we get overwhelmed with the should I or Shouldn’t I choices when applying for a job. With all the things that each of us encountered over the past year in itself is overwhelming. Why not brush off the past and build for the future? Take what you learned from the past and use it toward the future of your success.

Each Day I take the time to appreciate the simple things and work through the hard ones. It is a daily struggle to meet the challenges one faces when dealing with an issue. Sometimes it worth it to take a step back and revisit it. Do what you can today and hope to finish tomorrow. Know all things are possible if you truly believe in yourself. #wordsofadvice #motivation #inspiration

My Thoughts on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

Here's my list of what I'm grateful for:

  1. Those who protect abused children, provide for and care for orphans and sick children - for they are innocent and helpless and need us.

  2. Those who feed the hungry, bring water to the thirsty, give shelter to the homeless, and support the needy - for whom will they go to on earth if not us?

  3. Those who dedicate their lives to medicine for the cause of saving lives - else sickness would overtake us.

  4. Those who work to bring real justice to the truly violated without an angle to gain - so that we will still believe in what is right.

  5. Those who work in preserving nature and helping the environment - else our world would not be livable.

  6. Those who work for real peace to stop wars/fights/misunderstandings - so that we live in peace and harmony with each other.

  7. Those who work to save and protect our animals - because they are without speech and were given to us by God to look after.

  8. Parents and family members that correct and teach their children to uphold moral values, promote goodness and kindness, practice ethics and sound principles and lead by example - so that the generations to come keep goodness and humanity alive.

  9. Those that have gone out of their way for their friends well-being and bring them back from dark places because they truly love them and care for them - so that we understand the value of and need for real friends.

  10. Those that work with the addicts, for their patience, their will in not giving up but waiting in confidence to see the breakthrough in these lives - so that we continue to have faith even for these and believe in God’s saving grace.

This year let's not just be thankful, but let's be meaningful in our hearts and actions to live a life that others can be thankful for us......

And in my case ...it's not about the money ... The consideration and the appreciation for the employee always goes a long way and money won't pay for it.
