Resumes

Multiple Jobs In One Company And Your Resume

Our guidance on how to deal with specific situations on your resume which arise when you've been with a company a long time.

We get a lot of questions about dealing with your resume when you've been a company a long time. It seems to really confuse people - and adds to their fear that a long time in one company would be seen as being 'stagnant'. In this cast, we're going to address the problems, and hopefully allay your fears.

Our guidance for resumes for 2013.

What Your Resume Says - Chapter 6

We take 20 example resumes and give you our analysis of what they say to a recruiter.

This cast started as a question: how could we help people understand how their resume is read by a recruiter. We know what you want to say - and we know how that's interpreted. We needed some examples, so we put out a request. Over 100 listeners volunteered to have their resume critiqued.

We're not going to go over the format of resumes in this cast. You know our recommendations there (and if you don't, you can find them in "Your Resume Stinks"). For these casts, we're just looking at the content.

Your Directs' Resumes

This guidance describes when we recommend a manager consider their directs' resumes.

This cast was originally about talking to a direct about their resume when their job was in danger. But in talking to managers, we realized that many managers had no idea there were OTHER times when they should have been looking at their directs' resumes. Or, at least, encouraging their directs to do it themselves.

So, here are the 6 most obvious times you have to be thinking about your directs' resumes.
