Is Your Resume Holding You Back From Your Dream Life?
Embarking upon the task of finding a new job can be daunting, to say the least. Digging out your old resume stirs up all the feelings of insecurity and unpreparedness, and in some cases, sheer panic… especially if the resume feels like it is from the Middle Ages, hiding in a dark cupboard somewhere all covered in cobwebs on a floppy disk. Even if you had your resume updated only a few years ago, trends change quickly and what was once modern and eye-catching now looks outdated and boring. Gone are the days of arriving without an appointment to knock the socks off the HR (Human Resource) Manager, in your most professional outfit and best smile. These days, every job application must be submitted online in electronic Microsoft Word or PDF format, often accompanied by a Cover Letter and at times also featuring a document that addresses the role’s Key Selection Criteria.
