6 Clues to What’s Wrong With Your Resume: Free Class

What’s wrong with your resume?

I bet you don’t have a clue!

2014-09-19 11.05.45
Debra Ann will serve as 2016-7 NRWA Dir of Industry, Workforce, Military, Community Career Services

It sure is surprising when we present our very best and get little to no response. I attended our annual National Resume Writer’s Association Conference in Annapolis, Maryland, last week and if I heard it once, I heard it stated twice, that:

If you are not getting interviews, it’s your resume! 

Many others have much to say about this interviewing-grabbing document that we call a resume.

#1 – Avoid the old school big block format. Give your resume an appealing look.

#2 – Use active voice! Give your resume spice and energy. Avoid using “responsible for, assisted, provide, performed, tasked, and in addition to.”

#3 – Take out acronyms and technical jargon. Make sure that anyone outside of your line of work can understand your resume.

#4 – Don’t turn in irrelevant resumes. Match your work experience section to the targeted position.

#5 – Don’t demonstrate mediocre data. Hiring officials want to read about your unique contributions to your job. Include your best accomplishments!

#6 – Add education – Go beyond just the degree and college name. Include a list of courses and / or descriptions of three significant projects.

4 Things to Understand About Assisting Ex-Offenders with Employment

By Debra Ann Matthews

Many people who’ve paid their debt to society and are now ready to work in jobs and/or career areas may not have the right words to verbalize their passion and desire to help the workforce meet company goals. Others need a bit of help showcasing their dependable work histories via key employability skills that are of interest to managers looking to hire talent. Don’t be put off by your relationship with the United State Prison or Parole System. Over 700,000 people annually leave a relationship with the system and seek out job opportunities. Be encouraged, consider these 4 things and use it to help ex-offenders and those with felonies reap a positive employment search.

No one is unemployable!
No one is unemployable!

You will be thrilled to learn:

#1 Even while incarnated, former inmates developed skills of note that helped meet goals in the detention centers and facilities where they served. Each facility offers standard classes on decision making skills and work related skills. In addition, inmates are hired to perform much production, landscaping, and intense cleaning duties while incarcerated that are ideal for workers looking for talent with experience. These skills can be noted in such a way as to elicit interviews and interest from hiring managers who are sympathetic to their status as felons.

#2 Many inmates served as peer advisors, lead work teams, and explained policies and procedures to younger inmates. These experiences can be linked to potential jobs that require the same skills, especially for those persons who are Veterans, trained accountants, and have college degrees.

#3 Some people are placed directly on parole and never have to actually serve jail time and are highly likely to possess talent and skills and are experts in safety and standard operating procedures. Many will also have training in the medical field, construction, legal profession. Encourage them to look for WIA (Workforce Investment Act) supported training dollar to assist with taking certifications and earning CEU units (continuing education) to help them to become job ready.

#4 Use all of their experiences, both while incarcerated and while on parole as jewels for creating resumes full of value, skills, and expertise that are wanted in the work place. Coin soft skills and hard skills on resumes, bios, and cover letters to help offer ex-felons and those on parole to develop compelling messages for recruiters and hiring managers showcasing how you’ve overcome your barrier to employment and are ready to shine in the workforce!
