Is Your Resume Ready for Prime Time? It only takes a few minutes to find out. http://t.co/Bz7DoDyGc5 #resumes  
Is your current resume ready for prime time? This question has nothing to do with the peak viewing time on television when advertising rates are at their highest. It refers to the less than 30 seconds that it takes a recruiter or hiring manager to make a decision about your resume.Consider this: The average length of a television ad is 60 seconds. This is twice the time it takes the most discerning, eagle-eyed recruiter to scan a resume and decid...

When it comes to job search, we cannot underestimate the importance of storytelling. If you can articulate your value effectively, you can succeed in your job search. Career storytelling can help you build credibility, but its benefits don’t end there. It can also help you to identify your dreams, strengthen your values, find your true assets, and build your self-confidence. #storytelling #jobsearch

The term "Once upon a time...", is not only meant for bedtime stories. It's an integral of the job search process.This post is based on a quote by actress Angie Dickinson, but it also contains elements from the Foreword of my new book, Tell Stories Get Hired. Credit for the Foreword goes to Sharon Graham, one of Canada's foremost Career Strategists.While Dickinson's quote may relate to life in general, this post is written from a job search conte...

Hats off to my client's daughter, Fifth Grader Amanda. Really a good news story!

"She’s been selling the headgear for $10 each and donating the funds, which has totaled close to $200 so far, to Halton Women’s Place, a shelter for the abused or homeless, in what’s become her Hats for Homeless campaign." http://ow.ly/IEcBQ

Forget SMART Goals - Try CLEAR Goals Instead

When you set a goal, whether in business, career, or life, it must be a clear and compelling statement--one that can be built out, embraced, and acted upon by every member of the team. http://ow.ly/HM2K5
Setting CLEAR goals can lead you to the real success that you and your team are aiming for.
