GOOD MORNING! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Grab a cup of coffee, we've got work to do. Limit your achievement based resume to one page using 12 point Times New Roman, Garamond and Arial. Reduce your resume by noting positions, duties, and achievements beginning with your current or most recent position, up to ten years. Be sure to remove any fast food or retail jobs if they are no longer relevant to the work you do now. So if it’s older than 8-10 years and bears no relevance to your current career focus and aspirations, it’s okay to remove it from your resume.
For those of you who have been in the workforce longer and have reached the higher echelons of corporate America, your resume can be as long as 2-3 pages, preferably only 2, expanded to 20 years of experience – and anything no longer relevant to your career focus should be eliminated.
Bonus tip 2. Remove graduation dates. Why? Showing the date you graduated from high school or college opens you up to discrimination. You may be seen as too young or too old and never even be called in for an interview.
In some countries, it’s perfectly normal and acceptable to see personal information such as height, weight, marital status, number of children and a photo on a resume. If you’re a national applying for jobs in the U.S., make sure you remove all of this prior to submitting your resume. Including this information is not desirable or standard practice in the U.S. and is often frowned upon by recruiters.
If you’re an American applying to work in other countries, its your responsibility to find out what the application and resume submission standards are for the country you plan to work in.
I can’t stress enough the importance of this next tip. Use a neutral, professional email address. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#event#tips Despite what many vendors will tell you, everything is negotiable. Remember that with every event there will be unforeseen costs, so try to negotiate as low a price as you can. Determine your budget before meeting a vendor, and offer to pay 5-10% lower than this figure. Your vendor may put up a fight, but ultimately they want to win your business.
Some say change is good, others would disagree. I’ll speak from personal experience on this matter. I believe change can be both good and bad. There is change that generates a better end result than your present situation such as a promotion to a new job, or when a couple in love decide to marry or start a family.
Then there is change I would consider bad such as loss of wages, the loss of a loved one or something internal to workplaces like their standard operating procedures or SOP.
When a company or department constantly changes it’s processes or procedures, including updating forms, and reports, it’s usually an indication of one of two things; the company is poorly managed or it’s about to go under.
Now, if your office is experiencing change in the form of an overhaul, meaning many people are being laid off, positions are being consolidated and corporate head honchos are “visiting” or “touring” the premises, then this is solid indication something isn’t going well, major change is on the way, and the company will soon fold or sell to the best offer they negotiate. It’s a good time to prepare yourself for departure and maybe save a little money to tide you over before you go.
A bit of advice if I may, once you have your resume in order, it’s a good idea to go out and buy yourself a new interview suit in navy blue with a light blue shirt or blouse. The suit will add to your confidence when interviewing and confidence is the number one factor in nailing the interview. Why blue? It just looks nice, and works best as far as colors go. It also means "trust" and you want to be trusted by your interviewer. Black makes you look too serious and grey, is just blah.
FWA = FLEXIBLE WORK ARRANGEMENTS and it could save you HUNDREDS of dollars per year... most employers are now open to negotiations for flexible working hours, provided that work targets are still achieved... For example; working 40 hours over 4 days instead of 5 days! Added benefits = same pay, one extra “you” day per week, a full day for studying or spending time with children, reduced travel/parking costs and child care costs on the non-working day. Suggest a trial period to start with and see how it goes! Good luck!! 😃
Nope, not cherry blossoms but it is beautiful snow. If you are complaining about Millennials, you are missing some of the most rewarding work relationships of your life. You only think you know what you are seeing.
🌸My first day @oracle I met a woman 15 years my junior and she answered so many of my questions, owned a room, became my Sherpa and my friend. Meeting other women under the age of 34 who are intellectually curious, investing their money in ways I never did at their age, teaching me about ethical brands, asking hard questions of my generation and venting in my office about the Bro culture we associate with Tech. We began to call one another ‘Work Wives’
🌸Let’s stop dismissing one another because we think we know what we see. Look closer at the women in your professional life, they’re INCREDIBLE. 🥂

A JOB TO LOVE: "What I enjoy most as a buyer's advocate is the human side of things: achieving people’s goals and getting them into a house that they love. The relief, happiness, and gratitude - it's really satisfying". #BuyRight#ShaneBanfield
When was the last time you ate breakfast sitting down? If you’re a mom the answer is probably - before I had kids. .
Post-divorce I’ve gained a lot of organizational skills. If I don’t run the house like a well-oiled machine...but I’ve gained other skills, too. Like the ability to negotiate. Did you know that 68% of women didn’t negotiate their last salary offer? We leave an estimated $2 million on the table over our careers. I’m talking about it over on @wearesoworthy .

Most deals don't get done because one side doesn't know enough about the other party. In order to make a deal happen, you must know what the other side wants. In order to know this, you have to know the other party's background, needs, and motivation. You must do your research and ask tons of questions.
