I just read a great article on Salary.com 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. http://www.salary.com/10-things-to-never-put-on-your-resume/

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.

I found a really great job search engine (new to me) but I love it so far for anyone out there in REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY. Although it is geared more to Commericial Real Estate professionals/executives you might find other tips on there to help you in your search. It is : http://www.selectleaders.com/ 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

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!

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!
