As I look at the length of time I've stayed at these jobs I see that its 2 months here or 3 months there or 6 months there (if accurate). I believe this is the reason Im not getting any call backs. I hate listing the jobs where I only stayed a few months. Its embarrassing. I even fill like not even applying anywhere. What's the use? How can I make MY resume still stand out? How can I fill in the application if I was terminated or quit?

Was the length of employment because of working through a temporary agency or did you leave at will?

When you’re out there in today’s market trying to find employment you’re oblivious to others looking right along side of you. It can be intense, frustrating and depressing. Especially when you have a family to care for and bills to pay.

I find stepping back, re-evaluating your skill set and making changes to your key words helps. I recently found an old resume from 14 years ago that showcased skills I hadn’t used in some time and I do plan on... see more

Artificial Intelligence Changes Employment

We have been hearing a lot about Artificial Intelligence over the past several years. Some experts predict that AI will eliminate half of all jobs that require humans. Yet, others say that we have nothing to fear, because AI may rid many jobs, but it will also create new employment opportunities.

According to a new Brookings Institution report, robots aren’t replacing everyone, but a quarter of U.S... see more

I don’t care that I’m 68 years old…..I'm like a fine wine! I get BETTER with age!! I believe I was facing age discrimination in my job search for the last year or so until I realized that I was half the problem!

I wasn’t staying positive and coming to interviews prepared to show them that I am just as able to complete the job as someone half my age. One tip I do have that I would like to share with you all is to UPDATE YOUR RESUME!

I have been a recruiter for 20 years+. Here is what happens to a submitted resume:
1) If you are given a persons email to submit a resume it will go to that persons email. Now you have their email address and can follow up with your resume.
2) You send it to an HR inbox. This is where it gets tricky- in this case they are in most cases using a resume software key-word search to search your resume. It will tally how many times key words from their... see more

Have you really stop and ask yourself WHY you're Passover for that Job? Could it be that you were not honest on your resume and in the interview?

Always tell the truth! It’s that simple. When you are telling the truth you don’t have to make anything up or recollect what you said during your phone interview or wrote on your application. The truth is always the same and it doesn’t change.

Honesty would provide for open communication and will... see more

Very well said, Thank you, John!

I’m going to Trade School during the day this year and I’ve been looking for a full or part time job that I can work around my daytime school hours.

Today in my e-mail one of the job feed sites posted an Amazon Warehouse Shopper Part Time job. I clicked the link to apply online and took maybe 15 minutes to answer assessment questions about myself and my gender and ethnicity. When I clicked submit at the end it popped up and said they were... see more

Don’t emphasize your length of experience, emphasize your capabilities!

Highlight the accomplishments you’ve achieved over the years and demonstrate your worth. Be sure to show genuine excitement about the work that you do. Instead of discussing how many years you’ve been in the field, say something like this:

This is my sweet spot! I’m thrilled about the potential of being able to bring my skills to the team! I love working within a dynamic... see more

For professionals in the creative arts: If you are a creative professional in a freelance-only industry, I would like to open a discussion about how to best tailor résumés. How do you streamline a diverse set of professional experiences with a long list of previous employers to show your capabilities but not overwhelm recruiters with too much information?

I was told once not to add my college degrees on my resume. I believe I should add my degrees to my resume because that is a very proud accomplishment what do you think?

show it, you worked for your Degree. Do not let people control how you want to go about doing your thing. Asked... see more

My town is really fierce competition for jobs or has lack of one's that differ from needing wine experience. I applied to 30 and still no job. Im getting frustrated with how much experience I have or seeing their workers not doing much when I go to interview but they don't offer me the job. They love my resume always and is impressed but there's always one person with a little bit more experience for me. Where I live you need more than 1 job... see more
