Why a Great Resume is Your First Step to a Successful Job Interview | Career Rocketeer - Career Search and Personal Branding Blog

Why a Great Resume is Your First Step to a Successful Job Interview | Career Rocketeer - Career Search and Personal Branding Blog | Techy Stuff | Scoop.it
The key to a successful résumé is the same as the key to a successful job interview.
Patty Ball's insight:

YIKES!

Point #1: Whether you believe it or not the likelihood is >65% of the people who apply for the jobs you applied to are a carbon copy of you; and I dare say this rises to >85% among those chosen along with you for a face-to-face job interview. You’ll all have similar experience, have undertaken the same job responsibilities, have equivalent education and skills sets, and share most other factors employers look for in certain roles such as leadership ability and industry specific knowledge & experience etc.

Distracted By Google Search? 4 “Search Engines” You Should Not Ignore | Techy Stuff | Scoop.it
An upstart search engine some 20-something has developed in a Silicon Valley garage? A search engine that could take little bites at Google's leviathan footprints? Hardly. Though, the second part of the above is coming true. But let's dissuade you from the hype of trying out some new-fangled search engine that has recently been unveiled.…

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order | Techy Stuff | Scoop.it

If you do anything professionally related to online technology, you understand the immense amount of data you need to sort through each day. There are the daily content roundups, blogs to read, Facebook posts and to check, tweets to scroll through and news sites. That doesn’t include whatever else arrives in your in-box. I literally cannot keep up with all that I want to know about social media technology and its use for engagement, fundraising and advocacy.

It’s really too much to know. That’s when I began trusting the curators.

 

Trusting the curators was a strategy I employed to begin to figure out what to read, what I needed to read, and what others whom I trusted thought was important to read. We cannot read it all. We cannot begin to imagine trying to read it all. We must trust to the curators.

Trusting others to curate content has become my primary means for gathering relevant information about social media and particularly nonprofit technology.
