Top 10 Resolutions for Job Seekers
Your resume is a marketing document; it shows hiring managers why you are the best candidate, so it needs to make a stellar impression while giving them access to the most relevant information. While crafting a winning resume can seem like a challenge, it doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Whether you are hoping to land one of the lucrative and flexible marketing jobs in the area or are seeking out another kind of opportunity, here are three tips to help you improve your resume.
Unlike in the past, when you’re applying for new marketing jobs in DC, many of today’s companies require candidates to submit resumes to an online applicant tracking system (ATS) or through an online job board—both of which can feel very similar to tossing your application into a ‘black hole’ since you usually don’t know what happens to it after it’s submitted or if it even parsed correctly into the database.
According to a survey of HR professionals, around 96 percent of employers perform reference or background checks during the hiring process. This means, if you are applying for a new job, you can almost guarantee the company is going to ask for references.
Stress is a natural reaction to experiences we have in everyday life. We know stress when we feel it and we know how it impacts us in the short term. These are the things you should know about the impact of stress and minimizing workplace stress.
