 I finally made the commitment  to invest meaningful time in Google+, Sleep when I'm dead...right?  The idea that instead of writing books (as I've done for thirty years with the Knock Em Dead career books) we can instead look each other in the eye and have a conversation is amazing.
Sorry I'm late to the party, always been a short-bus kinda guy. Best

Great to have found you -  this integration of having a life to live as you pursue professional goals is such a challenge. I write the Knock Em Dead career books and have been addressing this integration of needs for money, meaning, joy and fulfillment for  years.
We were all raised in an either/or world, and a world where professional sacrifice was expected above all. It doesn't make sense and hasn't for many years.
This life is for you, not to be squandered working 16 hour days for the stock holders. This life has options, and they do not have to be pursued one at a time, in fact the major pathways to living a successful and meaningful life can be surprisingly harmonious.
I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.
Kick ass at work today, and invest in yourself tonight, working towards what gives your life meaning. Best.

Is your resume discoverable or disorganized?

When recruiters are searching for talent in resume databases (or social networking sites) they invariably do so with a specific Job Description (JD) in mind.

This is important, because job postings invariably reflect the exact wording of the Job Descriptions they come from. This means you can identify the words and phrases your target companies use when they are looking for someone like you.

If you and I want to hire an accountant, here’s how the process works. First, we need to identify the job title, so we type “accountant” into the dialogue box and specify a location. Next we click on the keyword options (words that describe the hard skills of the job), and up pops a list of words that have been frequently found in job postings for similar job titles. Finally, we add keywords of our own that do not appear in the offered keyword options.

The software then scours the database and builds a list of all the resumes that contain any of those descriptors or keywords. It then weights the list. Those resumes with the most frequent use and greatest total number of keywords rise to the top of the list.

Mentioning keywords in a Professional Skills/Core Competency section at the front of your resume, and then repeating them within the context of the jobs in which they were used, will increase your ranking in recruiters’ database searches. #TargetJobDrivenResumes   #professionalresumewritingservices
