Writing Your Resume? Don’t…

Over the last several years, resumes have gotten quite the makeover. And it’s not just professional resume writers spiffing up their clients’ documents. Regular professionals have decided to take their resumes to the next level with formatting, graphics, tables, charts, and more. But this swing towards the fancy resume might actually hurt your chances of landing the job. “Try reading your resume on your phone,” recommends executive resume writer Donna Svei in her article on fancy resumes. “If you don’t like the experience, then neither will recruiters and hiring managers.” Yes, you read that correctly: the majority of hiring managers (about 60%) are now reading resumes on their phones, either in addition to or instead of on their computers. Documents that contain extra style elements, graphics, or other non-basic content may be difficult, if not impossible, to read on a phone. These fancy formatting options can also make it difficult for applicant tracking systems (where your resume goes when you apply online) to read your resume, which means those systems won’t be able to see your keywords and related skills, and won’t send your resume onto the next step—being reviewed by a human hiring manager. In the process of writing your resume? To make sure your resume is readable rather than fancy, follow these guidelines: 1. Keep your colors, fonts, and formatting simple. Svei recommends avoiding the following: Colored backgrounds..

How Your References Can…

References play an important role in the hiring process. A reference can be a deal closer or deal-breaker depending on the references you had provided. Therefore, it is important to ensure that you choose good references, which can secure you the job. Here we are going to discuss where your job reference can cost you the job. Never choose references randomly, we see that many of the job seekers provide references without informing the person who is given as a reference. It may insult the person or there is a chance that they may not provide good feedback. It would be better to get approval from the person whom you plan to use as the reference. It will be not a good idea to think that your job reference would be always happy to do it. Choose the right reference. You had completed all rounds of your job interview and the employer had asked for the reference. You do not have anyone as a reference or anyone who can give one for you so in a hurry you may choose your parents, friends or relatives as a reference. Never give such references if you have not worked with them, remember a job reference is to evaluate your past performances. Your previous employer or present employer had told you to use his name as a reference and you did not discuss with..

Are you searching a…

Habits show your personality either it is bad or good. To stay on top of your job search, be sure to avoid these bad habits: Lateness No Interviewer will like to see you 10 minutes late for an interview or he will encourage you that you were late.

So make sure that you manage your time and reach the interview venue at least 30 minutes ahead of the interview.
