Make sure you are leveraging the strength of LinkedIn, and not making any of these rooky mistakes.

Be careful about using fancy fonts on your resume. If the recipient does not have the same font on their computer, their system will convert it to one if its pre-loaded fonts, which will probably mess up your formatting! I prefer Arial, but Times New Roman is popular too.
Here's how to do something every marketer wants -- install on your computer custom fonts!

Story
Tagline
Career Counselor, Professional Resume Writer, LinkedIn Strategist and MBTI Practitioner
Introduction
After writing resumes and cover letters for more than 15 years on a volunteer basis, I joined the ranks of professional career consultants in 2009, founding The Resume Resource.  I now devote all my energy to helping people build rewarding careers that make them truly happy. As a career counselor, professional resume writer and job search strategist, my mission is to help others identify their ideal career path and develop the tools, strategies and confidence to achieve their goals.

In August 2015, I rebranded The Resume Resource as EDGE Career Solutions to better represent the full range of career services I offer job seekers at any level within any industry. Whether you are moving up the corporate ladder, looking to reinvent yourself with an encore career or a new college grad launching your career, I can help you market yourself effectively and win interviews. In addition to ATS-compatible resumes and cover letters, I provide LinkedIn profiles and training, career coaching, job search strategies, interview preparation, and administer the MBTI assessment.

Applying my expertise in online application technology and job search best practices, I work 1:1 with my clients and guide them through the job search process to make it less overwhelming and more successful. As one-size-fits-all solutions are rarely effective, I offer my services on an a la carte basis so that you can choose the services that best fit your needs. Why wait? Make this the year YOU find a great job that provides more than just a paycheck!
Bragging rights
In 2011, I left the corporate world and built a wonderful new life for myself as a solopreneur career coach. Now that I know how rewarding it is to have a job that I love, I dedicate myself to helping others find the same career satisfaction. To date, I have helped hundreds of job seekers of all levels across industries achieve their career goals.
