Last week I talked to a director at a large international company. We discussed resume mishaps that can hinder a candidate’s job search. One common error is to place one’s name and contract information in the header or footer on the resume document in such a way that it is hidden to a software reader or a human reader. Why is that so bad?
Perhaps you’ve been on the job hunt for months and you are feeling dejected. Maybe you are attempting a challenging career change that may be a long slog. I hear from clients in these situations every week. Rather than another reminders to keep a positive outlook, I am suggesting a tip and an app that may help to lift your spirits.
