Celebrating in Advance: What’s Right With Your Resume

…can’t wait to share my love of crafting resumes with you (my 1st live training)

Hi, I’m Debra Ann. I spend most of my time learning. Some of my favorite days were spent on the hill at UT, that’s the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, (that is for my Texas supporters) siting in English Literature classes, dissecting and divulging the meanings of words, concepts; justifying my own interpretation of famous and not-so-famous literary artists including… Oh I can’t remember those old folks names now, but I loved learning about Malcolm X, Paula Giddens, Alex Hailey, and of course Nikki Giovonni and other local Tennessee writers and artists. I later learned the value of all of those speech, communications, rhetoric classes is just what I am able to do right now= Read, Research, and Write Resumes. I absolutely love taking my clients experiences and showing them how I can help them target them in a way that hiring managers and recruiters can see their value.

3 Best Resume Tips for Clarksville, Montgomery County, Tennesse Job Seekers

#1 Remember your résumé is not an obituary that lists every job you’ve ever had. It’s a marketing document whose content should support the job target you are seeking..

# 2 Keywords are King! What are they? Buzzwords, nouns, adjectives, or short phrases for your industry. They usually describe your unique knowledge, skills, abilities, education, and experience? They are used to “Score” or “rank”  résumé. Do not add keywords tha you can’t justify.

#3 #1 Assume that a résumé will become a part of an applicant tracking system if you upload it or attach it to an email message. Typically, if a company has four to five open positions per month consistently, they should be using an ATS. In fact, 100% of Fortune 1000 companies and 80% of small/medium businesses use them. Resumes are being read underneath the format. Content is critical. Your experience needs to be crystal clear, hyperlinks are ok to be included on a resume, bold, and underlines are fine too! White space and consistency is a must on today’s resume! 

#4 ATS Systems can read any resume format be it MS Word doc or docx, Rich Text Files (rft), DOS/ASCII Text(txt), Open Document Format (odf), LinkedIn, Adobe Acrobat (pdf) with just a few exceptions.

#BONUS TIP: 65% of jobs today are filled or in the process of being filled before they are listed. Your resume isn’t enough. Leverage social platforms as talent databases or for advertising and connecting with hiring officials. Use your resume on LinkedIn, FB, Twitter, Instagram, and Google, etc.

Looking for a job now is not simply about stating your duties at work, it’s about marketing your unique skills: It’s a Career Marketing Campaign!

3 Best Resume Tips for Bowling Green Job Seekers

Speaking to professionals at the National APA Conference, Washington, DC

#1 Understand that as candidate surplus goes up, tolerance for resumes with poor messaging and “user experience” goes down. In other words, tap into employer needs with content that you place on your resume.

#2 Dig deep into your skills sets and note the challenges that you solve based on industry challenges. What problems does your skills help companies solve? 

For example, I am an expert ______. Safety champion: OSHA10, OSHA30, Hazmat. Skills based worker: Forklift certificate including cherry pick and stand up. Team lead and Supervision experience that leverages talent pool to meet company daily productivity goals.

#3 65% of jobs today are filled or in the process of being filled before they are listed. Your resume isn’t enough. Leverage social platforms as talent databases or for advertising and connecting with hiring officials. Use your resume on LinkedIn, FB, Twitter, Instagram, and Google, etc.

#BONUS TIP: Optimize Industry Keywords on your resume from the job description and also from the noted problems. For example, sales, business development, operations, human resources, training, distribution, loyalty, sales retention, team leadership, inventory, warehouse.

3 Resume Best Tips for Jobseekers in Bowling Green, Kentucky

3 Resume Best Tips for Jobseekers in Bowling Green, Kentucky

Resumes are a sales document that helps a hiring official understand and appreciate the value you bring to the industry focused on your achievements, accomplishments, and unique successes. No better reason for job seekers and career changers in Nashville, Davidson County to need job-winning resumes than this fact.

First Tip: The Kentucky Career Center is currently closed and although services are available virtually, there is no touch like the personal touch – one on one assistance for nervous and anxious jobseekers. One good practice prior to uploading your resume. Do not forget to add and build the same resume on the portal to ensure that recruiters will see your resume.

Debra Ann Matthews, Forbes Coaches Council, M. A., JCTC, JCDC, National Resume Writers Association, Career Thought Leaders – Presenting in Washington, DC at the APA National Conference

Second Tip: If you are a part of any specialized group including youth and young adult, ages 14 to 24, single parent with children in the Welfare to Work Program, senior seeking a less demanding job after retirement, disabled person seeking to work with the Ticket To Work Program, veteran seeking work after military service, or recent college graduate seeking your first job be sure to write out your top five accomplishments prior to writing your resume to really look at the impact that you’ve made in the various work, intern, hobby events that you have participated. When you write out your accomplishments, be sure to start with action verbs. For example, accelerate, adapt, apply, build, calculate, centralize, command, control, coordinate, collaborate, craft, crate, critique……

Final tip: Be sure that your job-winning resume is readable, easy to skim, and easy to read both on paper and online.

Top 3 Ailing Comments I Hear from Job Seekers in Clarksville, Tennessee That A Good Resume Would Cure

Top 3 Ailing Comments I Hear from Job Seekers in Clarksville That A Good Resume Would Cure

Clarksville, Tennessee, is one the fastest growing cities in the nation and every single day, I see job seekers on Facebook in many groups asking the dumbest questions about their job interests that a good resume would solve. Consider these comments:

  • “Who is hiring? Preferably not fast food”.
  • “ISO any places in Clarksville hiring for $14 an hour or higher”.
  • “Who is hiring in Clarksville? No food places please and it had to be flexible with school”. (Poor grammar left intentionally as these are actual real comments from job seekers)

Honorable Mention:

  • “Any jobs hiring that you can start ASAP”?

When you have a great resume, and inquire about jobs, you speak as a knowledgeable, skills laden person ready to help companies in a specified industry as you know that companies want workers who want to be there. There are well over 1000 different types of jobs to have in any one city. I want to encourage each job seeker to understand how to seek specific jobs based on their interest, aptitude, and values.

For those who need to learn about various jobs, let’s sit down and have a coaching session.

Veteran Celebrates 1 Year Success of 1st African Market in Military Community #Entrepreneurship is our future covid19 job




Mr. Adolph Agbeko Yao Dagan and his wife Kafui

Mr. Adolph Agbeko Yao Dagan and his wife Kafui wanted to open up an international market after his military career in 2009. Dagan, as he is called by his fellow veterans, hails from Daganhoé in Togo, West Africa, a name that means Dagantown. Dagan African Market celebrates its first year in operation on July 20, 2020, the day of his birth. Looking back over the year long journey, the family celebrate and acknowledge their long hard journey to offer their 1000 square foot facility to customers who have traveled more than 500 miles from as far as Alabama, Kentucky, and all parts Missouri and Illinois to frequent their establishment offering authentic foods, clothing, beauty products, artwork, and other great finds from the people of the Caribbean, Africa, and other international favorites.

Trained as a high school French teacher, the family saved thousands of dollars from 2009 to 2019 to start a business in the heart of a thriving community populated with active duty military and their families as well as retired Veterans. Dagan and his family worked hard in order to prepare to take ownership of a premier African market that fulfilled the needs and expectations for the community of more than 250,000 resident in the Fort Campbell, Kentucky, Clarksville, Tennessee community. And all of the struggle turned out to be worth it as his company, Dagan African Market, became the first African market in the city. One of the challenges in a military town is that many can open businesses, not many can maintain a revenue generating establishment.

Located on Fort Campbell Boulevard in Clarksville, Tennessee, Dagan Market offers online delivery.

Truthfully, as Dagan continues to climb up the ladder of success, he and his family fully expect to become millionaires within 10 years. As they plan to open up a restaurant and increase their inventory. He and his wife and their children are also looking to incorporate an online store and even a direct custom order service for drums, wood pieces, and other original organic African artifacts.

With the families good reputation and dedication to customer service, Dagan and his family  caught the attention of people who said, “These are a good family“. The family hopes to become the largest African and International Store in the Tennessee and Kentucky area. They are passionate about serving patrons and veterans from the islands, Africa, the Caribbean, Spanish and European nations. Dagan says if you want to succeed, you have to work very hard.

As a poor citizen of Togo, West Africa, Kafui and Adolph treasure their homeland and support a church and school in their village of Dagan and Togo. They also collect school supplies, medical supplies, and clothes to send back to Africa and plan to establish a hospital and additional schools once their business hits the one-million-dollar revenue mark.

To get the best African artifacts around connect with Dagan African Market at www.dagaafricanmarket.com.

Middle Tennessee Woman Receives $5000 to Help in Covid 19 Crisis by Sara Blakely Foundation

Let Me Write It For You Selected by Global Giving As Red Backpack Fund Recipient, Receives $5,000 Grant From The Spanx by Sara Blakely Foundation To Combat COVID-19 Crisis

July 7, 2020 — Global Giving announced today that Let Me Write It For You has been selected to receive a $5,000 COVID-19 relief and recovery grant from The Red Backpack Fund, an opportunity for small businesses and nonprofits made possible by The Spanx by Sara Blakely Foundation.

“My hope is that this gift will help alleviate some of the pressures caused by this horrible pandemic. Twenty years ago, I started Spanx with $5,000 in savings, and I see this as a time to pay it forward. Small business is the backbone of our culture. I know what it’s like to be a small business owner, and I want to provide some relief to these entrepreneurs during this time,” said Spanx Founder Sara Blakely.

The Spanx by Sara Blakely Foundation donated $5 million to support female entrepreneurs in the wake of COVID-19 and teamed up with Global Giving to establish The Red Backpack Fund.

Thousands of business owners and nonprofit founders from across the United States and its territories applied to receive a grant from The Red Backpack Fund to combat economic hardship caused by COVID-19. Let Me Write It For You was selected for the grant based on its outstanding application, its urgent need for COVID-19 relief, and its demonstrated capacity to overcome COVID-19 setbacks.

GlobalGiving, a 501(c)(3) organization with nearly two decades of grantmaking experience, will award grants to at least 1,000 women entrepreneurs from now through September 2020 through The Red Backpack Fund. GlobalGiving has assembled a 100% women-led team to lead the grantee selection process.
