Read about a very common resume mistake and how to avoid making it. (Hint: don't rehash a job description...)

This looks to be a promising series of web episodes. I'm a huge fan of Tory Johnson so I expect the advice to be spot on. Please share with anyone you know who's unemployed and struggling with similar frustrations.

Great interview prep tip!  Also good to do before public speaking situations.
 
#interview practice tip: record answers to tough questions on your cell phone; listen, edit, repeat.

Some great opening lines for your cover letter. The key is to grab the reader's attention and not start your letter off like every other letter in their in--box. Read along as you brainstorm for your own opener...
On a weekly basis any hiring manager probably receives between 50 and well, hundreds of resumes and cover letters. The key is to catch his or her attention from the start and the best place to do that...

Turn job search stress into job search success!
Introduction
I help capture clients’ strengths and highlight their unique value to potential employers and create powerfully effective career documents by working with my clients one on one to define their professional brand and core strengths.
 
While my clients have ranged from emerging professionals to senior executives across a variety of industries, I'm passionate about helping clients in career transition or career re-entry, including career changers, stay at home parents, and entrepreneurs returning to corporate America.
 
The bottom line?  I love what I do. I love writing. I love helping job seekers. I love when you walk away excited to start using your new resume. I love when I hear success stories from clients about how their job searches were kicked into high gear after they submitted their Sterling resume. I love finding out a client's accepted the job of her dreams. I love what I do, plain and simple.
 
Projects include resume development, career change and transition, job search strategy, and interview coaching.
Bragging rights
When I'm not writing, I'm training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. Professionally, I'm one of less than 35 Certified Master Resume Writers worldwide and was nominated for a Toast of the Resume Industry (TORI) Award.

I was very impressed with Mike and his team at Gladiator Electric. From the first point of contact, he was responsive, professional, and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend his services, and after such a positive experience, he's now my "go-to" electrician for any future needs.

While in Philadelphia recently, I trained Muay Thai at Brazen Boxing & MMA and had a fantastic experience. They were welcoming, professional, and responsive from the first point of contact. The environment was friendly (especially important as a woman) and the vibe was laid-back. No attitude here. My training with one of their coaches, pro MMA fighter Tom Backman, was value-added, appropriate for my level, and technique-driven. I would recommend Brazen without reservation. I absolutely love where I train at home, but left there wishin' I lived in Philadelphia so I could train at Brazen!

My son started taking karate classes last year. All of their instructors are top notch, developing a quick trust and rapport with students. Students in turn have the utmost respect for the instructors and consider them role models. In addition to the obvious physical fitness and self-defense benefits, we've seen improvements in our child's self-confidence, discipline, and social skills as well. They offer programs for all ages, too! Older students and adults can take classes in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or Muay Thai Kickboxing. If you're considering a martial arts school in the area, you owe it yourself to talk with the instructors at Bill Stevens Karate. The school is exceptional!
