Cruise Line Class's curator insight, June 18, 2014 7:17 AM

Please do take a minute to read the study!


I love that the article stated that the average time recruiters spend looking at resumes is 6.25 seconds.  I would always tell those who I was helping that if your resume is lucky enough to get past the systems and make it to a human...your resume has 6 seconds to catch the attention of the recruiter.


What does that mean to you?  Review your resume and make sure that the most important information is front and center.  Tweak your resume to ensure that a quick glance it is evident that you meet the qualifications of the position, and are a fit for the position, and the company.


Remember the job of your resume is to set you apart from the hundreds of other candidates to land you an interview on the first round.  Review your resume, would it past the 6 second test?


Hope the article and the tips help.  Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

What to Wear on An Interview

What to Wear on An Interview | Career Advice | Scoop.it

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, June 17, 2014 9:06 AM

Putting your best foot forward is like wearing a sign that says to the employer "This position and this interview is important to me"


There is one more thing:  When you look your best, you feel your best, and it boosts your confidence.  Most everyone could use a boost of confidence when they are faced with an important interview.


So next time you have that important interview:

- Take the time to plan out what you are going to wear.

- Make sure that the attire is professional and appropriate for the interview setting. (There is a difference with what you would wear to the beach, gym, mall, and clubs) 


Not only will you look good you will feel good -- that can't be a bad thing right?


Lots of luck on acing your next interview.  Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

Camila A Garcia's curator insight, June 17, 2014 5:04 PM

There is nothing more important than the first impression one gives to someone. When going to an interview, a person has to look its best with a suite if possible clean and in her/his best presentation. The first impression and how you dress is crucial to start the process of the interview with a positive ending.
