10 Things You Should Never Have On Your Resume

I just read a great article on on 10 things you should never have on your resume and it is worth reading if you are sending out resumes because so many of my clients have had these items on their resumes prior to us reformatting it.

Most important at the top!!!

Do not forget to write your most important credentials at the top of your resume. Many people write job descriptions in their resume and end up putting the most important in the lower sections of their job descriptions. Prioritize them by importance, impressiveness and relevance to the job you want. Remember, you do not have to list everything you do, only what it important for the job you are applying to.

It is : If you have used it, please let me know what you think! I would love some feedback and I wanted to pass on the information! Jody

March Madness!

I wanted to reassure job seekers that in March of 2012, my clients have had the fastest results in finding jobs than any other month in the past 3 years. It is probably a combination of having the right tools (cover letter, resume and the knowledge how to accurately apply for a position) and that the job market is improving! I am so happy to see so many client's having success. Last week a client found a job within 1 week which is the fastest turnaround yet! So congrats Sally for using all the tools we worked on and I couldn't be happier for you!

Get Hired!

I just read in a recent study by “Startwire” that 50% of company hires were applicants who applied within the first week of the posting and approximately 75% of all hired candidates applied within three weeks of the job posting. What does this mean...the first quarter is typically one of the busiest quarters for hiring so you want to move fast on those jobs you see online!

The Word Resume..In Your Resume !!!

One simple tip for your resume is to actually put the word "RESUME" in your resume because if a hiring manager or a resume applicant scanner was to pull or google a certain type of resume often they put in something like " Controller's Resume". I read recently, it just gives you that one more simple way of getting noticed. I usually put it on top of page 2 when I create a resume and it reads : RESUME (Page 2). I put it directly under the name!

Understanding Your Target Audience In Writing A Resume

When writing a resume, it is critical to understand your target audience. By pinpointing at least 3 key things that your target audience would need to know about your ability and how it relates to what they are seeking in the position, you are creating a more strategic resume. I always recommend to put this on the very top of your resume. Not in a objective statement but in a career profile summary. Keep it short and concise. If you would like a free review of your resume to ensure it is strategic, please email me at
