If you didn’t pick up the December 2013 issue of Washingtonian Magazine’s “Best Places to Work” Issue, you can now find our “Building the Right Resume” article online! I was so honored and excited to be featured in my favorite magazine, addressing a topic I truly love: building gorgeous and compelling resumes! The article is entitled “The Right Resume,” and in it I address common errors one might make when writing his own resume.The article starts:
“We’ve all heard how to avoid common résumé mistakes—check spelling, keep it to a page, change your email@example.com e-mail address. What about more obscure errors? Laura Labovich of Bethesda’s [The] Career Strategy Group offers tips that can make the difference between landing and losing a job.”
In the article, I advise job seekers on the use of color in their resume (we once wrote a resume for a client trying to break into Discover Channel, and gave it a pop of blue: Discovery Channel blue!); share advice on why it’s important to not to go back to Nixon with your experience; and speak to the importance of accomplishments over duties. With a satirical spin, it’s a really fun take on a daunting process and, if you’re planning to write your own resume, a must-read!
