As you might notice, resumes have changed in recent years and most of its changes happened due to the Internet. Now words like online resumes, resume templates, resume writing, etc are common in employment and job search. If you think that it’s not the moment to look for a job, maybe you’re still studying and you don’t have job in your plans, remember that no matter your current situation, it’s important to have an updated resume with the information you can have and make sure to update your resume as any information changes. In fact it’s a bad idea to build your resume some days before the submission deadline.

A resume has to look great, sound great, and make you come alive on paper; you’ll have to worry about the content but the resume builder will also give some advice and even some content to add to your resume and make it more impressive; resume builders are easy to use and guides you step by step, some even are on-click designs with different looks. Appearance is pretty important because often managers scan your resume for just 10 seconds to see if you’re the indicated person, and evaluation is based on organization, order, style, etc. In order to reach employer expectations, a resume builder is a great tool.

Good Resume

Good Resume

Good resume writing skills, in part, has allowed me to be in a career which I am passionate about today.

I was an average, if not, a poor student. During my three-year tertiary education, ‘D’s were my faithful companions about half the time. Was it difficult to secure a good job despite my results? Nope. I got the job I wanted!

How did I do that?

Good resume writing provided me with that wonderful start.

I presented my little other achievements in a positive way, scored the interview, and convinced my interviewer to give me the job.

As a job seeker, I realized that a well-written resume allowed me to put the focus on work experiences and achievements instead of education and grades.

And as a recruiter, many applicants were quickly placed in the ‘Not Selected’ pile. Why? Because, their resumes did not tell me clearly, why they are the right person for the job. And this, despite good academic results and work experience.

Good Resume Writing = Good Matching, Writing or Selling Skills?

Yes, you are right. Good Resume Writing involves all three. A resume is a passport to the interview. And the interview leads you, hopefully, to the position that you are seeking.

So how do you use a few pieces of paper to attract the recruiter to pick up your resume, go through it with interest, and call you for an interview?


You need to do three things when you are writing your resume

  1. Match

Match your values, relevant work experiences, skills and knowledge to the position that you are seeking.

  1. Customize

Customize and write these in clear, concise, specific and quantifiable terms.

  1. Present

Present these in a professional manner (quality print on plain white quality paper).

My Diary



Career or daily drudgery? Career or a job? Too late for change?

Career, career, career…

Other than your family and a dream of winning a lottery, it’s hard to think of any other subject that occupies our minds to such an extent as our career. Unfortunately, it is a rare individual who gets in a great mood when the subject comes up.

Just think about it — if somebody tells you that their career is going great and they love their job, don’t you feel like slapping them around and yelling out:

“Wake up!!! You know you’re lying to me.” Unfortunately, with the exception of Shaq, Tom Cruise, or Bill Clinton (I would not mind his job — travel all over the world and pretend like you can solve all of the world’s problems — he seemed to have been a bit more stressed out while in the office), there are not too many people who can honestly say:

“I love my career, I can’t wait to get to work in the morning, I have too much time on my hands to spend with my spouse and I am having too much fun with my kid(s)and friends.” Do you know anybody like that? If you do, I bet you suspect they are lying (well, no denying it — I am rather cynical when it comes to certain issues).


Guess what, I think you can do it, too (but, it is not as easy as it sounds – initially, it requires a lot of work – there is no free lunch in this world).

I don’t want to hear your excuses! I used them all before. To repeat – it is not easy as you think. You won’t change anything by putting in extra few hours a week into this.

The articles will focus on a career in general, financial independence, career/family balance, stress management, exploring new job opportunities, negotiating skills, dealing with coworkers and bosses, occasional depression, advancement strategies, and most importantly…

It is my hope that based on my and my colleagues’ experiences as well as our extremely varied professional, personal and educational backgrounds (as for me, I lived in several different countries and I am in my late 30’s) you may walk away with some ideas that will serve you with a wake up call…

I can promise you one thing — the variety of subjects that we will cover in this magazine is likely to strike a nerve with everyone — this is a serious effort, so please visit us once in awhile for some food for thought — not only purely career-related stuff.
