Students take note: MyEdu is a social media tool that allows students to track courses and related skills, then link those skills to potential career paths, and hopefully, actual employers.

University of Louisiana System President Sandra Woodley, encouraged colleges and universities to implement apps that provide  links between students and possible future employers (as reported by Lauren McGaughy of NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune on Monday, Dec. 2, 2013).

UL president says Louisiana colleges, universities should use 
technology to steer students toward in-demand careers.

So, I checked out the site; very visual, reminds me of a Pinterest board. 

MyEdu helps students to Tell Their Story in a visual profile. They also list over 6,000 internships! Other features include;

Profile Card

Student Profile

It will be interesting to see, in a year from now, how many students found jobs using the web site.

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,

Jackie White

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,

Use Your “Pat-on-the-Backs”

Keep copies of all awards, performance appraisals, congratulatory emails; any type of pat-on-the-back you receive from management and peers alike. Not only can a professional resume writer gather useful information on your achievements but reading these documents will also boost your self-esteem.

I suggest reading over your “pat-on-the-backs” before every interview; they will remind you of how valuable your contributions were and of what a great asset you can be to your next employer. Do not be shy about your achievements; modesty has no place in an interview!

Good Luck
