Using the right verbs can make the difference between being in the okay pile and the call back first stack!

 

To me verbs tell the untold story.  If I am looking for a strong leader and the verbs used are all about what you accomplished as an individual contributor...you probably won't be in the must see first pile.

 

Don't look at your resume like writing a boring essay -- think of it as a brochure and you are selling YOU.  It is imporant that your brand comes through loud and clear, and the use of powerful verbs is an important ingreidient to a successful resume.

 

Hope you enjoy the verbs.  Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

If you want to stay ahead of the curve, it is important to pay attention to current and up to date technology and recruitment trends.  That means that your resume should not follow old rules that no longer apply.

 

Good to Know:  Objective statements are out and Qualifications Summaries are in.

 

If you are really married to your objective statement, you can hold on to some of the language and weave into your cover letter.  The objective statement is all about you and what you want.  Remember:  the resume should be all of the employer and what you can do for them.  That is where the Summary profile comes in 

 

Good to Do: Tailor your summary to highlight your experience, accomplishments, skills, and strengths to the position and employer you are applying for.  Be careful to make sure that your summary profile is supported by the experience and skills contained in your work history.

 

 I am not telling the view of all recruiters; however, I am sharing with you the shifts that are happening, and the resumes that are adapting to technological advances together with the overall recruitment and selection process.

If you are not getting calls after sending countless resumes, your resume is probably lost!

 

What comes first you or the resume?  You!  You first need to know where you want to be, and then you can target your resume towards the direction you are aiming.

 

Your resume should be clear, concise, focused, and directed towards the position and industry you are seeking.  

 

Make sure that your resume talks for you when you are not there, and that it is not sending the wrong message that you are unsure about where you want to be.

 

Make it a great day!

There was a time not so long ago when things were simpler, before the internet, iPads or smart phones were around.  Back then a resume was just that …a resume. The task of putting together a resume was not a headache. 

 

The goal was simple:  to document job history in a simple to read one page format.   

 

 So what has changed in 20 years?  Just about everything!

 

 The good news...it doesn't have to be so confusing or difficult.  Just  look at your resume like part of your wardrobe.   You have different resumes for different purposes, just as you have different clothes for different occasions.  

 

If you think of your resume like part of your wardrobe, it will help you to understand that there is a place and time for every outfit in your closet.  In your wardrobe you proabably have bathing suits, shorts, jeans, and suits.  For every important ocassion you may spend time to carefully select the perfect outfit that is the right fit for the event.

 

It is the same way with resumes.  You need to repackage your knowledge, skills, experience, strengths, and accomplishments in a way that make it easy for the hiring manager to determine that your resume (like an outfit) is a right fit for the position and the company.  You can do that by making sure that you dress up your resume with the knowledge, skills, experience, strengths, and accomplishments that the company is looking for.

 

I hope this helps a bit.  Until next time!

I particularly agree with the advice on keeping the cover letter concise, engaging, and to the point.  (Definitely not more than one page)  Also, generic cover letters without purpose or personalization in my opinion are a waste of time...to you and the employer.

Many studies have addressed the issue of identifying the different dimensions of culture. In the presentations concerning culture by Madlin Reck and Anne Tornow the ways in which national culture may influence management processes, including Hofstede’s dimensions of culture have been discussed extensively (Luthans & Doh, 2012).

Afghanistan and the Taliban: Before, After and Now

The Kite Runner was set in the years 1975-2001. Everything during these years went from being peaceful, to bad, to even worse. The Taliban during these fateful years have taken control of Afghanistan and its government. They were thought of as heroes to the people of their once peaceful country, but their way of controlling their government is sadistic. In the present, they are even involved in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

During 1975, Afghanistan was a quiet place to live. There were economic hardships, but the residents of this pleasant country got through it. Kabul is the capital city of Afghanistan. It had the most economy problems in the country. Most of them were poverty difficulties. The president of this country at the time was Daoud Khan. Then, when winter came along, resistance towards communists began. Amir from The Kite Runner even knew of these communist attempts to rule his country. “Huddled together in the dining room and waiting for the sun to rise, none of us had any notion that a way of life had ended.” (Hosseini 36). The Afghan Islamist part of the resistance was favored by Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United States instead of the Afghan traditionalist and royalist parts. The uprising has just begun for the communist takeover in Afghanistan.

In 1979, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. Even Amir from The Kite Runner even knew about this before it all happened. “And then in December 1979, when Russian tanks would roll into the very same streets where Hassan and I played, bringing the death of the Afghanistan I knew”(Hosseini 36) The Taliban during this time were thought of as refugees and were part of a resistance movement to expel the Russian troops from their country. The United States and Pakistan provided financial and military support so the Afghans could win against the Soviet soldiers. Despite the fact that there were civilians in Kabul, the Afghans did not care and used missiles, provided by the United States, to drop on the city resulting in civilian casualties and killed Soviet troops. In 1989, Ahmed Shah Massoud, took over Kabul as new leader. They ended up overthrowing President Sayid Mohammed Najibullah, who headed the Afghan government. In 1994, the Taliban were more powerful because Pakistan favored them and did everything in their power to support them. “Pakistan support for the Taliban is based on strong religious and ethnic bonds between the Taliban and Pakistan” (Amghar, Web 6). The militants of the Taliban are Sunni Muslim Pashtuns. They are thirteen percent of Pakistan’s population. They are basically most of the Taliban in general.

In 1996, Osama Bin Laden moved from Sudan to Afghanistan and met with Mullah Mohammed Omar, the Taliban’s leader. “Bin Laden was involved in the bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998” (Amghar, Web 6). On September 11th, 2001, Bin laden prompted the bombing of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. This resulted in the United States asking the Taliban to immediately hand over Bin Laden. General Pervez Musharraf, president of Pakistan, told the U.S. that he would support the capturing of Bin Laden. Instead, they couldn’t take down Bin Laden and Al Qaeda because of the ethnic and religious ties with the Taliban. Basically, Pakistan let the Taliban do what like to the people in there cites by robbing them and raping women. “The Taliban were exceedingly ignorant, which made them cruel” (Arbabzadah, Web 1). The Taliban used to be heroes to the people of the country, but now they are just plain evil. In The Kite Runner, Amir’s friend Farid said the Taliban would look for any excuse for violence. Amir bought a fake beard because it is considered a sin to shave and that all men should have beards. He saw Kabul during this time and was unfamiliar with it as it is not how it used to be when he was a kid. Afghanistan is just plagued by the Taliban with no hope for escape.

 

 In conclusion, the Taliban before, after, and now are a deadly force to reckon with. I have to say that religion has a strong connection with them as they think of most things as sins. Amir from The Kite Runner depicts Afghanistan as a peaceful state. Now, he thinks of it as a wasteland that is ruled by a stubborn government with a false sense of religion. In my opinion, as much as I hate the Taliban, they must be removed from Afghanistan and Pakistan because they can cause a lot of trouble for those countries and can stir up many civil wars within those countries.

According to research compiled by HireRight, 144 people apply for each entry level position, on average. To handle the tidal wave of resumes, companies are increasingly turning to applicant tracking systems that analyze keywords, dates, titles and other important information to quickly evaluate a candidate's eligibility.

 

Because this filtering technology screens out approximately 75 percent of applicants, in order to get your foot in the door you're probably going to have to impress the robot doorman.
