Good Advice from Keppie Careers – A Head Above the Rest

Category : Other Stuff

I got a nice email from Miriam Salpeter the other day about | Jobs for Teenagers and our resume advice.

She wrote, “I like the point about quantifying (how many children, how many lawns, etc.), but I do think that you are advising your customers to list jobs instead of focusing on skills and accomplishments. Even early in our careers, I think there is a lot of room for job seekers to figure out how to market not only WHAT they have done, but WHY it was important. It is a different way of thinking about a resume.”

Good Point! While we advise our readers to be specific, I dont think we go far enough to stress the importance of why your experience is important. Thanks, Miriam.
