Career Management Quotes of the Week

“The greatest enemy of learning is thinking that you already know.” –  Jack Canfield & Dr. Peter Chee

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not’ the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.”
– Calvin Coolidge

Get a Different Perspective to Create a Standout Resume

Don’t be afraid to ask past colleagues (be wary of asking current colleagues, of course), family, friends, and those you volunteer with about what you have done in your various jobs (including volunteer work) that might be great to mention on a resume.  What have you been really excited about that you have discussed regarding work?  What projects do they remember you working on specifically?  Do they remember you winning any awards or recognition's?  What about a performance review that was particularly good?  Do they remember you writing any standout documentation (manuals, policies, tips sheets, website verbiage, etc.)?  Do they recall you training others in the workplace or giving presentations at work or in a volunteer capacity?   

It can very difficult for us to see our accomplishments.  Often the things we do daily are some of the most important information to include on a resume, but we just see it as part of our job. Getting another perspective regarding your career and your performance in various jobs can really help bolster the information you can provide on a resume.  To your job search success!

Career Tip: Don't Let Summertime Stop Your Job Search

The kids are out of school, it's 95 degrees outdoors, there are tons of summer activities wanting your attention, and you feel that most companies aren't bothering to hire during the Summer so you can put off your job search until Fall.  Wrong!  Not only do companies hire during the summer, but applications you filled out in the Applicant Tracking Systems in June, may actually have interviews starting as late as September or October.  If you weren't actively job seeking, you missed out.

Searching for a job is a job, and should be treated as such.  Just like your boss still expects you to be giving 100% every day your are at your job, you should give 100% to your job search regardless of the season.  Whether holiday time or summertime, keep your job search going, it will pay great dividends in the end.  To your job search success!
