  3 Strategies for Making it Past the Initial 5-Second Resume Scan
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I’ve heard it said various ways that you get a 5-, 7-, or 30-second initial scan from the hiring manager. I can tell you personally that when I was an HR manager and had 100 resumes to go through, my initial scan was about 5 seconds long, and I was looking for something to catch my eye. Here are the three areas I looked at when considering whether to invest more time: PROFESSIONAL FORMATTING When you’re reviewing 100 resum...
 
  Networking From The Opposite Direction
by Kevin Donlin - Oct, 2010
Here’s a Guerrilla Job Search maxim to live by: When in doubt, do the opposite. Think about it: If most job hunters are struggling to find work, why do what most job hunters are doing? Take email, for example. If most job seekers email their resumes to employers … and get no reply, why not try the opposite? The opposite of email could be in-person delivery, fax, or U.S. Mail, to name but three possibilities. Here’s an...

  A Few Little Words - A Big Idea
by Suzanne Bates - Oct, 2010
I was driving on the Mass Pike (never a place where you want to take your eyes off the road, even for a itsy bitsy nanosecond) but couldn’t help being temporarily distracted by a funny new JetBlue billboard. ”Knees have rights, too.” Four little words. A big idea. Gets you thinking. Jet Blue has decided that torturing passengers is in fact not a good business practice. If their ad campaigns haven’t won every award...
 
  How Employee Engagement Influences
by Eva Jenkins - Oct, 2010
As the fourth quarter of one of the most challenging years in the U.S. economy’s history draws to a close, companies that want to stay in business for 2011 should focus on turning buyer satisfaction into buyer loyalty. The key is a higher level of customer loyalty and an engaged workforce to inspire that loyalty. In an alarming number of companies, massive lay-offs have decimated workforces and left those that remain feeli...
 
  3 Reasons Why Your Resume is Keeping Your Phone from Ringing
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
If you know someone who’s looking for a job—and I’m sure you do—then you may have heard them complain about having sent their resume off to hundreds of employers, only to receive absolutely no responses or acknowledgements. I’ve heard this complaint countless times from friends and colleagues. Part of the reason this happens so often is because companies really have become much less personal about their hiring processes. Th...

Although most people understand the general idea of this, I find that job seekers often struggle with applying this idea to writing their resumes. Here are 3 easy ways to do it: How many? Sometimes our responsibilities don’t sound that impressive until we start detailing how much...
 
  4 Simple Things That Hurt Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
When we review people’s resumes, we often see a basic document with lackluster content and outdated formatting. These are pretty common, but what we also see are resumes that contain some pretty fundamental mistakes. Here are some examples of things to not do: 1. Under the document properties section of your resume, make sure it shows you as the author of your documents. Having someone else’s name there, particularly if...
 
  7 Strategies to Overcoming the Resume Black Hole
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
We hear from job seekers every day who are sending out hundreds of resumes and job applications never to be heard from again. It’s hard to tell if it’s the resume that’s at fault or the company that’s not hiring, already hired, or just sitting in a stack of 500 others never to be found. So I’ve compiled a list of seven ways to overcome the resume black hole that so many resumes seem to go in to. MANAGE YOUR JOB SEARCH DON’T...
 
  An important question to ask your friends today – it could get you a job!
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I write often about the need to surround yourself with positive, supportive people during a stressful period of job transition. Connecting with family and friends regularly lifts your spirits and reminds your network to keep an eye out for you.
