Résumé Writing, what I am learning. Part Duex
Part two of this series focuses on the questions that I had/have about what to put on the Résumé especially when you are trying to add or subtract something that you may or may not feel that is important to a HR Representative.
If you are into Social Media, examples Pinterest, Twitter, Blogging, Linked-In, Facebook, and any other's that are in the news and you are on the radar for put it on your resume! You do not have to put your user names on it, however the length of time for each is a bonus.
I have been Blogging for 5 years (both personal and professional) and have run successful giveaways with Product Relations groups; Facebook, Linked-In, Pintrest and Twitter for 3 years.
Some websites on the World Wide Web can tell you exactly how long you were on the Social Media map. So Google it!
6. Another tricky part about Resume writing is the length of one. I am from the old school thought of one page is best and staples and other attachment devices are a big NO NO! Well again that is an old school thought in the new age of working multiple pages is acceptable. I was told in one interview that 10 years worth of job information or at least 4-5 jobs in your resent past is a good way of showing what your qualifications and diversity of what you are willing to do in the future.
With me I thought I could drop off what I did in my retail position at the PlayStation Store San Francisco in 2002 because I had a very long and current job from 2008-2012. However that retail position could show a potential employer that I have retail experience and can stay at a job long term by that job I stayed at for four years. So, best to put at least 10 years of your work past or show that you went to finish a degree in the time spent out side the work force.
Next post is all about fonts and how mat fonts your Resume should be. Also if you have a question about any resume questions please post them in the comment section and I will try to answer them.
