CAREER ADVICE ROUND UP FEBRUARY 26th
Here is the career advice round-up for the week of February 26th…
As a former recruiter, I hated when job seekers submitted résumés that lacked a measurable list of achievements. Business Insider reached out to several résumé experts who agree that failing to include specific metrics on a résumé is one of the biggest mistakes you can make.
Let’s face it, if you were hired for a job based on your resume alone, there would be no need to interview. But because no one is hired solely as a result of their work experience and/or accomplishments, interviews are a necessary evil.
You got your degree and have been putting in your time in the workforce ever since-so much so that you’ve grown to become a pretty skilled employee as a whole. There’s just one problem: Your boss refuses to acknowledge that you’re capable of doing so much more than the work you’re currently tasked with.
In a blog post earlier this week, I wrote about “getting clear on the fear” that keeps you stuck in a job where you are unhappy, like almost 50% of Americans. It’s a tough place to be. If you found yourself nodding along while reading, use that confirmation to take courageous action.
There are definitely “right times” to look for a new position with a new company. The most obvious being urgent need due to unemployment, dissatisfaction, company changes, layoffs, compensation cuts, inadequate bonuses and other negative factors that catalyze a dire need to find a job.
