Fresh from a relatively short period of unemployment, he still identifies with those still in job search mode - and nice guy that he is, he wanted to share a few pointers with you regarding e-mailing of resumes in the hope that it would improve your success. His company gets lot...
  Resume Writing 101: What's In a Name?
by Tracy Laswell - Apr, 2007
In the last five years as a career services professional, I have found that approximately 90% of my clients are hell-bent on having their name appear on their resumes as follows: "George M. Smith" or "Susan W. Dingle" It ends up on the resume only about 5% of the time. I will, naturally, put any truthful bit of data on the resume as my clients dictate (after all, they are paying me). But first they get my professional...

by Tracy Laswell - Apr, 2007
In my business, I naturally see a lot of resumes, written by amateurs and other professionals. Lately I've seen a rash of resumes that seem to have lost their minds. Is your resume "headless?" If your resume reads something like this, you may be missing a critical section. JOHN T. FRUGALBERRY (with that dreaded middle initial, no less) 1122 Boogie Woogie Avenue, Middletown, CA 94000 (714) 111-111...

  Asking For Help in A Job Search
by Tracy Laswell - Apr, 2007
If you don't seem to be making progress in your job search, perhaps it's due to a breakdown in communications. Here are some ideas on how best to ‘ask your way' into a great new job. BE SPECIFIC. If there is anything that drives me completely batty, it's the generic request for assistance. As a job search consultant, I have many, many clients to “keep in mind” as I hear of opportunities. These are people I know, people I ca...
  Cover Letter Myths and Resume Nonsense
by Tracy Laswell - Apr, 2007
When it comes to know-how on finding work, most folks get their information in much the same way they learned about "the birds and bees." They get their "information" from equally uninformed peers while tiptoeing around behind the current boss's back.
