by Ben Ruark - Aug, 2011
If not encountered already, at some point in a protracted unemployment interlude we're forced to decide whether continuing a search for the same/similar position previously held is going to succeed in the near-future; or whether we're on a treadmill-to-nowhere: that we've crossed over some invisible 'threshold of denial' - refusing to acknowledge the harsh reality that our profession's job market exercises exclusionary criteri...

4 Big Reasons You Need a Résumé Overhaul
by Debra Wheatman - Aug, 2011
I recently completed a rush project for a client and I can tell you definitively that he regretted not having revamped his résumé sooner. My team worked a lot of overtime to create a stellar document.
