5 Job Search Tips For The Happily Employed Candidate

  Sometimes life gives you lemons and, as the saying goes, you make lemonade. Meaning, when life hands you unexpected situations you make

Beyond The Keywords

By | October 2nd, 2015|

From time to time I come across articles and essays on the Internet that talk about the importance of keywords in the resume. I keep hearing about those fancy “Applicant Tracking Systems” that will filter resumes by keywords in an attempt to deliver only suitable candidates to the recruiter. If you Google the phrase “keywords in resume”, you will get hundreds of websites that advise candidates on how to use the keywords to improve the chances of their resume or social media profile being noticed by a recruiter.

Kiedy cv to za mało – Poszukiwanie pracy to ciężka praca

By | June 26th, 2015|

Podejrzewam, że większość z nas zgodzi się z tym, że era tradycyjnych, papierowych cv dobiegła końca w XXI wieku. Niektórzy z nas dobrze pamiętają jak wyglądały poszukiwania pracy jeszcze dwie dekady temu. Nanoszenie ostanich poprawek na cv i list motywacyjny, odręczne wpisywanie adresu firmy na kopercie, a pózniej oczekiwanie z niecierpliwością odpowiedzi z zaproszeniem na rozmowę kwalifikacyjną. Tak to mniej więcej wyglądało w przeszłości. Obraz osoby pochylonej nad gazetą otwartą na stronach pracy i podkreślającej markerem wybrane oferty zatrudnienia obecnie bywa zdecydowanie rzadziej kojarzony z poszukiwaniem pracy.

When A Resume Is Not Enough – Finding Work Is Hard Work!!!

By | June 26th, 2015|

I suppose most of us agree that the era of the traditional paper resume has come to its end in the XXI century. Some of us can still remember how we used to seek jobs as recently as two decades ago. Polishing up a traditional paper resume and a cover letter, writing the desired company address on the envelope and later keenly awaiting a response for a face-to-face interview – that’s generally how it was in the past. And the scene of the job-seeker bent over a table and highlighting job postings on the last page of a daily newspaper. These are actions that seem to be associated with a job search less often in today’s marketplace.

The Top 10 You Need To Know To Achieve Success With Your Resume

By | January 19th, 2015|

In the course of my 12+ year career as a Recruiter/Strategic Talent Sourcer, I have likely reviewed close to 200,000 resumes. While that number doesn’t necessarily make me an expert, the fact that I have seen that many resumes certainly provides me with some insight on what I see as a critical part of one’s career and life.

Are Cover Letters Relevant?

By | November 26th, 2014|

As recruiter's and sourcers we can argue the fact that if truth be known, we rarely read them. We all understand that if

Resume Keyword Tweaks that work with the ATS (Applicant Tracking System)

By | November 10th, 2014|

  You just hit “submit” – your heart races, palms sweat, you swallow – the same sequence of events repeat itself – your resume disappears into the Abyss of the company ATS. You are a frustrated job seeker who is waiting impatiently for a call that never comes. You have all the right skills (at least you think so). After all, you think pretty highly of yourself – you are polished, professional and definitely not hard to look at. Your resume shows an impressive career progression, with a long list of awards and accolades. You are at your wits end and it dawns on you that “looking for a job IS a job in itself!” You scratch you head and wonder: “Where in the world did I go wrong?”
