Leadership, Marketing,

This article was previously featured on TalentZoo.com. Click here to see the original article by Jessica N. Abraham. Aside from the new standards of quality that have been instituted into the new resume requirements for getting past Applicant Tracking Systems, we have to realize that, for most of our lives, we have been writing the resume wrong. Professional resume writers are often baffled at how some of the top professionals at Fortune 500 companies have included so few achievements within their resumes, but have listed many duties! For the most part, employers already know what your job duties entail. As […]

Previously Published to TalentZoo When life takes the backseat and we spend more time in transit than preparing a meal, we often forget how important it is to continuously invent self, evolve, and stay ahead of trends. We often forget how to keep learning and adopting new skills; how to form educated opinions, backed by research and facts. And, most importantly, we forget how to breathe. In a world run by technology, there are many executive professionals that remain computer illiterate. This is fine.

Previously Published to TalentZoo As you look around at businesses that thrive, what do you see? Businesses like Google, Amazon, VisualSoft, and many others have a people-oriented management style.

Being different isn’t always just doing something “crazy,” or even selling a unique product. As a matter of fact, it doesn’t have to deal with your income growth at all. Managers and companies […]

To Lead or Not to Lead?

PUBLISHED TO TALENTZOO A very common misconception amongst the professional community, and especially where very talented people have the chance to “shine,” is that showing any type of leadership ability through resume or interview is a big “no-no.” Many equate the demonstration of leadership ability as something that should only be done if one seeks an executive role or a management position.

Career Development At Any Level

PUBLISHED TO TALENTZOO As humans, it is in our innate nature to want to evolve and become “better.” There are those that will be followers, and there are those who are natural-born leaders. Then there is that fine line in between — those who are in a cocoon, just waiting for their incubation into the next stage of the lifecycle of progress.

Marketing Yourself Through Breadcrumbs

PUBLISHED TO TALENTZOO Recently, I had a conversation with a young professional. I was working on his resume and realized that although he was only 25, he was very accomplished. He had a Master’s Degree and multiple certifications. He had leveraged massive growth and real estate acquisitions for his company while maintaining budgets of over a billion dollars. I was also crafting his LinkedIn portfolio. I was shocked to know it was his first profile and that he had no other social networks, websites, or mentions on the web. However, he had done many successful things on behalf of his […]

Marketing Yourself Through Resume

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED IN TWO PARTS ON TALENTZOO As a professional in an ever-evolving world of technology, it is absolutely important to keep abreast of changes that occur within the standard operations of society and hiring processes.

Therefore, hiring managers and executive decision makers are eliminating the number of resumes that they are scouring each week in order to streamline processes and maximize productivity in the job space while keeping staffing down to a minimum. Let’s take a deeper look into […]
