This morning, I was live on SIRIUS XM taking career questions on job hunting strategy. I hit on several key resources for those looking for work in case you missed it:
RESUME & INTERVIEW RESOURCES:
—ResumesDoneWrite.com – For those looking for a professional resume writer, Debra Wheatman can help. Deb and I worked together at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia where she was a recruiter. From Deb I’ve learned that every well-written resume has a summary section (a compelling statement about who you are and what you do) and a core skills section (with the key competencies you posses that make you a great fit for the job.)
–Cover Letters – If you want to write a great cover letter, check out this NY Times article called, "A Cover Letter is Not Expendable." You’ll learn that sending a hard-copy second submission of your resume and cover letter can increase your chances of landing an interview.
JOB HUNTING RESOURCES FOR THOSE WHO WANT FLEXIBILITY:
—Momcorps.com – staffing firm specializing in contingency, project and permanent positions for talented professionals looking for a flexible corporate work environment.
—FlexibleExecutives.com – catering to flexible career opportunities for people in various fields from marketing, to human resources, to finance, law and project management to name a few.
Comment below on your job hunting experience and share any useful job hunting resources you’ve found. And if you’ve been struggling with your job search, don’t go it alone. I can help with one-on-one coaching or by answering your question live on my SIRIUS XM radio show every Wednesday at 4pm EST. Just call in at 1-866-675-6675 and get specific advice for your situation.
