What NOT to Add to Your Resume

2022-08-02T13:32:08-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, How To, Resumes & Cover Letters|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

We have previously discussed what you should be putting on your resume, but we thought it was also important to discuss some things you might be adding that are unnecessary. We understand that in some cases, you feel you need to bulk up your resume, but sometimes simple and sweet is the key. Adding unnecessary information can be mistaken as unprofessional and may deter the employer from considering you for their open position, so you’ll want to be diligent in making sure these things are not on your resume.

Serious question, why are we ghosting?

I am not just singling out candidates who are ghosting interviews or job offers, I am also shining a light on companies who are ghosting candidates post-interview with no reason as to why they do not want to move forward. The question is why [...]

With remote work being the new norm we thought it was time to address ways to separate work and home life. You may be adapting to bad habits without realizing it, and though working from home to some is a luxury, you are not exempt from the necessity of a work-life balance. There are two sides to everything in life, and even working remotely comes with its share of negatives. Loneliness and isolation are the largest reported concern amongst remote workers. So, the question is how do you prevent yourself from falling into this feeling, or if you already feel [...]

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, a job search is not the highlight of anybody’s day. There’s no denying that it’s like adding a full-time job to your already full-time life, and we’ve never heard someone use “easy,” and “job search” in the same sentence.

This is the time when you should definitely be taking advantage of the [...]
