I always got the job. People stood in wonder and amazement time and time again.
Someone eventually said, "Her resume' is pure gold."
Eventually I said, "No it is not!" "In fact, its as bad as everyone elses."
From the top corporate offices all the way down, they look like text messages, unprofessionally writen
by people that work in the business world, in Global industries, including communications.
That's when I met Vicor Williams founder of Resume - Scribes. That's when I redefined myself, my goals.
I am a gifted writer about to publish my first collection of prose stories. I completely missed the value
of the ONE document that defined, WHO I WAS, professionally. BUT, I was not alone, seems that one piece of paper,
The resume', is the most overlooked ASSET, of who we are.
I am now the Director of Marketing at Resume-Scribes and I invite you all to reevaluate the thirty seconds any
hiring manager is going to give that ONE piece of paper that communicates everything about who you are, professionally.
HOW YOU COMMUNICATE IS AS VITAL AS WHAT YOUR COMMUNICATING
JODIE MACGREGOR, Director of Marketing--Resume Scribes
The very melting pot of cultures that makes America great and produces a continuous array of ideas and free thinking is also the same melting pot that good companies are made of. The countless virtues of diversity, especially in hiring practices and the workforce are well chronicled; and in the immortal words of Mary Poppins, "never judge things by their appearance, even carpetbags. I'm sure I never do." In short, take the time to get to know someone different without the limiting burden of prejudgment, and you might just capture magic in a bottle.
Many professionals and job seekers are limiting their job search to those openings which are posted by a particular company. Not a bad strategy in general; however, many experts believe that a staggering 75-80% of all jobs are never posted or advertised. In order to unlock the door to the this hidden job market, professionals and job seekers should employ a proven and time tested method--NETWORKING. Yes, it is still true that networking is the best way to unlock the door to this hidden market of employment opportunities. Be active in your networking, both giving and receiving information, and where appropriate, make introductions. Keep in mind that someone smart once said that "the opposite of networking, is NOT WORKING."
