How will Coach Payton fill his Résumé Gap?

September 10, 2012 Leave a comment

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans.

As a card carrying member of the “Who Dat” Nation I am a little disappointed in the season opener against the Redskins and am worried about how Sean Payton’s absence will hurt the team.

But as a professional résumé writer I am wondering how “Bountygate will affect Coach Payton’s career and how he will explain the season long employment gap on his résumé?

In today’s economy résumé gaps are understandable. However, it is important to try and fill your gaps. If unemployed, for longer than three months, think of ways to fill the time. Learn a hobby; perhaps one you could turn into a home based business, learn a new language, start a blog, volunteer, or take classes (learn something new or refresh your skills).

I like how Jacob Share, JobMob, explains his résumé gap in his blog post;

Fatal Resume Gaps: How To Explain Them, How To Avoid Them

Now back to Sean Payton:

In this article by Mike TriplettThe Times-Picayune, Sean Payton talks about spending time with his children, Meghan and Connor; he is the offensive coach for his son’s sixth-grade football team – the Liberty Christian Warriors. Of course, he is also following football, the Saints especially closely; studying the game from afar and hoping this unfamiliar new perspective will inspire a few ideas.

Sean Payton Q and A: New Orleans Saints coach discusses unprecedented year away from football

So, if Sean Payton requested my services what would I write on his résumé?

My version of Sean Payton’s resume.

Follow Coach Payton’s example and find positive ways to fill your gaps.

We’ll get the Panthers next week.

Who Dat!

Thousands of Space Workers Still Struggling

July 18, 2012 2 comments

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans. Associated Press reporter Mike Schneider and foxnews.com reported on the struggle of space workers a year after the last shuttle blast

Space workers struggle a year after last shuttle

This was also the subject of one of my very first blogs;
High joblessness in the home of U.S. space flight.

I am a former Space Shuttle Program employee, as was my husband who is now 800 miles away building helicopters in Amarillo TX.

I did not view the very last launch but was fortunate enough to view the launch of STS-129 on Monday November 16, 2009. It was a stunning, aw-inspiring sight to behold.

If you need help with your résumé please call me.

Can a company demand to interview your spouse?

June 22, 2012 2 comments

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans.

I was researching on Monster.com and came across the strangest interview policy.

A question was posted on a Monister.com board for Job Search Tips about the interviewing policies of a company named MightyData.

One of the articles on the company blog detailed MightyData’s very extensive interview process. The blog was written by Susan Fennema, MightyData’s “Dean of Success.”

The blog talks about the steps in the interview process including; the online job application, interviewing with other team members, a technical aptitude test, a personality profile, and a reference check. However, MightyData has one last step in the interview process before a potential employee is approved to be hired;

Now get this, they conduct an In-person interview with spouses! (WHAT?) 

Here is the excerpt from the blog:

In-person interview with spouses – While I like the personality profile, this step to me is the very best. You can hear all the stories you want about separating work life from personal, blah, blah, blah. But, seriously. Are you really going to argue with me that your work doesn’t have an effect on your significant other and your significant other doesn’t have an effect on your work? That’s ludicrous. Plus, the candidate has chosen this person to be his/her most trusted life partner. It’s a good way to check your potential team member’s judgement! If the person does not have a significant other, this step is still included. It is the last step in the process and decisions are made thereafter.

I agree with Monster expert Susan Aaron’s (Career Assessment Coach) when she says WOW!

Can I add OMG! and WTF?

Seriously I had to read this paragraph several times! Does it really say;

“Are you really going to argue with me that your work doesn’t have an effect on your significant other and your significant other doesn’t have an effect on your work?”

“ the candidate has chosen this person to be his/her most trusted life partner. It’s a good way to check your potential team member’s judgement!”

 If the person does not have a significant other, this step is still included.

 Again; OMG! WTF? 

Good Luck

HOW TO: Set up an Online Resume

June 18, 2012 1 comment

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans.

This article by Erica Swallow explains how to post your resume online using personal websites, video hubs, document-sharing websites or LinkedIn.

HOW TO: Set Up an Online Resume

The examples’ used are some of the most creative social media, video and visual resumes examples I have ever seen.  Take a few minutes to view some of the examples; they are really impressive.

But what I really find most informative about the article is the suggestion Erica makes to upload your resume to a document-sharing website such as SlideShare or Scribd. In fact I have already created a profile and posted my resume on SlideShare (41 views already). I’m planning to do the same on Scribd.

If you need help creating your own Online Resume give me a call.

Good Luck
