Just like life, your career path isn’t going to always be su...

  4 Great Ways to Customize Your Resume for Different Positions
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2011

  Keeping Your Spirits Up During An Extended Job Search
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2011

  Why Writing Targeted Resumes Is More Critical Than You Think
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2011
When applying for a job, you are immediately handed the responsibility of proving you’re the best candidate, which can be challenging if you can’t provide examples showing that this is indeed a fact.
