Take your resume from ugly duckling to swan status

beautiful swanWhile there is no doubt the content of your résumé is what is most important, the ability to craft an attractive résumé is also vital. On average, a potential employer spends 10 – 30 seconds scanning a résumé, trying to get a quick grasp on what you have to offer. Using visuals can set your résumé apart from the rest and draw the reader’s eyes to what you want them to see.

A visually attractive résumé can make it easier for the reader to find and evaluate essential information. But this isn’t just about being pretty. Creating a professional image for yourself indicates you understand what you have to offer, and that you have the ability to organize and present it well.

Looking for a job?

job search tip yellowGet your family and friends involved!

Make your job search a team effort by telling your family and friends that you are searching for a job.

It is important to have a strong support system. They can be there to cheer you on in victory, or pick you up if you’re feeling down. Furthermore, your support team can keep an eye out for any job opportunities they come across.

Keep in mind, every person you know is a potential contact. Following are some ideas of who you can involve in your job search:

  • Family members
  • Friends
  • People in your address books (hard copy, e-mail, and social media)
  • Your Christmas card list (or comparable)
  • Co-workers from past jobs
  • People you know at the gym, physical trainer, or sports teams
  • Neighbors
  • People who come to do work at your home
  • Clerks you know at stores
  • Barber, hairdresser, manicurist, etc.
  • Waiters, waitresses, restaurant managers
  • Your doctors and their staff
  • Religious associations
  • Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, or any other group you belong to

I’m sure you’ve got the picture!
