Feeling Disruptive...Puck Drop in 4 Hours...It's a Hockey Day!!

The other day I suggested that this was an ineffective resume.  Why would I say such a thing?  Because I look at resume every day of my life and I want to look at resumes that don't send me on a hunting expedition.  There is a better way

Someone on Google+ shared this comment:

"I know of a company that charges clients to format their resumes to look just like this. Ironic."

I've come across many people who refer to themselves as a "Professional Resume Writer" who format resumes like this. Many of their strategies were great for the 1980s and the 1990s but they're not effective today.

If you want results in your job search, your strategy needs to start with an effective resume and an effective LinkedIn presentation. 

 "I just wanted to share some great news with you!  I was offered a position as the Director of Information Security for a large news organization and I'll be starting next month!  Your resume advice really helped me market my skills and get noticed on the job sites.  You've really got a great talent in helping people to shine.  So a HUGE THANKS to you!"
