Spring is in the air!  Spring brings change and new beginnings in many different ways.  Beautiful weather, lots of new color in our landscape and more activities outdoors.  Spring is also known as the best time to make a career change.  Many companies see significant progress by Springtime and can compare where they are against their "New Year Plans".  This spring, some of our clients are looking to fill more positions than ever before!

In this month's newsletter, I am including some simple but powerful resume tips that help you stand out from the crowd.  Always keep in mind your resume is your calling card and should answer one important question by prospective employers....Will he/she work for me?  By adopting just a few of these tips, your resume submissions can return more exciting meetings with hiring managers. 

I am also including some very exciting news about another Hiring Event we are hosting for Samsung.  We have successfully completed 2 so far with fantastic results and are looking forward to a third successful event on March 15th!

RESUME TIPS

  1. Custom tailor your resume to best represent your skill set based on the requirements requested.  If you have the skills list them!  It is too difficult to try to convince a prospective employer that you have what they need if it is not on your resume. 
  2. Use Power Words.  Try to use some impact words when describing important tasks.  Such as "initiated", "spearheaded" or shaped" instead of "worked on", "planned", or "started". 
  3. Highlight accomplishments, not just tasks.  Resumes that tell a story sell.  Think of your most significant accomplishments or what you excelled at most.  For example: design, coded and implemented is a task.  Consider adding what you accomplished with those tasks and how you impacted the business.
  4. Layout and design matters.  Review your resume and ask yourself "does my story flow easily?"and "is it easy to read and easy on the eyes?"  Pay attention to the choice and size of your font, have your formatting simple and clean and minimize fancy additions.   Keep in mind, sometimes your resume may get a 10 second pass through or glance.  Make sure it looks good!
  5. Include interesting facts, hobbies or interests.  At the end of the day, people hire people.  We all like to hear about what makes someone different or special.  Be sure to include details that can distinguish you from others such as certifications, contest or competitions, inventions, hobbies, self-study etc.
