Today I’m sending a shout-out to all the college students about to graduate; Congratulations!!!!

Class of 2012

Now for the bad news…it sucks out there in the real word:(

Here is an article, by Steven Greenhouse of the New York Times, about employers that are taking advantage of new graduates with unpaid internships.

Jobs Few, Grads Flock to Unpaid Internships

Many companies are taking advantage of the weak labor market. The unemployment rate for 20- to 24-year-olds was 13.2 percent in April (Greenhouse, 2012).

 
For your best chance of landing a “Paid Job,” call a Professional Resume Writer.
 
 Good Luck!

Well we got no choice
All the girls and boys
Makin all that noise
‘Cause they found new toys
Well we can’t salute ya
Can’t find a flag
If that don’t suit ya
That’s a drag
 
School’s out for summer
School’s out forever
School’s been blown to pieces
 
No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher’s student’s dirty looks

Google Job Experiment

May 2, 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. I love how talented people use their creativity to get noticed.

Alec Brownstein ran a Google AdWords campaign for names of the world’s best creative directors.

His message: “Hey, David Droga, Gooogling yourself is a lot of fun. Hiring me is fun, too” with a link to his website to let the creative directors contact him.

below I’ve linked the Alec Brownstein YouTube video:

The Google Job Experiment 

and the ABCNews interview, with Tory Johnson, the man who hired Alec Brownstein:

The Man Who Fell for Google Job Experiment

If you think of a creative way to get a job let me know.
Or let me help you get noticed with a creative resume from Imprint Résumés.

Good Luck!

What Do You Do Better Than Anyone Else

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.

Does your resume describe all the things you could do?
… Or does it describe what you do better than anything else?
 

What you put at the top of your resume brands you – it forms your readers’ first impression of you.

These first impressions are nearly impossible to change when the average reader spends 15 seconds on average on your resume.

So the question comes down to how you want to brand yourself? Do you want to brand yourself as a broad-skilled generalist, or as a subject matter expert?

Great blog on social branding from Phil Rosenberg of reCareered.com

Whatever you decide, do yourself a favor and seek the assistance of a Professional Resume Writer.

Good Luck!

A Very Satisfied Customer!

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. Hire a Professional  Résumé Writer

I got a call from a very excited client; she had an interview earlier today.

Her future employers were so impressed with her résumé they offered her in a management position! They felt she was over qualified for the associate position she had applied for. First, they gave her several job descriptions to read and asked which one fit her best. Then the Director asked if she was interested in a program management position!

She was so excited! She kept saying, “This would never have happened with my old résumé.”

She had a long successful career with a leading aerospace company; until the Space Shuttle contract ended in 2010. Even though her career was filled with accolades and awards she did not know how to put her accomplishments into words.

Writing your résumé may be the most difficult document you will ever have to write. Please, please, please consider hiring a professional.

Do not leave your career to chance or chances are you will not have one.

Good luck,

Tip of the Day; Sat., March 31

Network, Network, Network:

Everyone knows that the majority of available jobs will be filled through networking efforts. Last Sunday I had planned on spending the entire day on the computer working on my website, doing research, and searching for a job for my husband. He is presently living and working over 800 miles away. Anyway, a friend called to ask if I wanted to go see a popular local band and have a few beers at the Harley Davidson Shoppe. It was such a nice day. I did feel guilty for shrugging off my responsibilities but went to meet my friend anyway.

While listening to the band four different people, all former co-workers came up to us and told us, “Boeing’s hiring!” The next day my husband applied for all seven assembler jobs that were listed on the website.

Go listen to a band and have a beer or three; network, network, network!

Good luck with your job search,
