“Please do not discount my résumé because I am overqualified. I am NOT looking for a supervisory or management position. I want to get back to the basic grunt work of payables, researching invoices, matching them to purchase orders, and preparing the check run. If you hire me you will get experience, maturity, dependability, and a team player with no personal drama ready to hit the ground running.”
October’s Ask The Expert webinar with Kim Mohiuddin was awesome. I hope to have the recording up in a couple of weeks (just got back from a trip, and have some big deadlines to hit). But I wanted to share this with you right now so you can schedule it and sign up – no cost.
Karen Huller, owner of Charésumé, is the guest in November. She says:
Having an effective résumé is critical for earning interviews, but it alone does not land you a job. In order to execute a swift, successful job transition, you also have to:
Present a consistent brand, online and offline
Develop and implement a sound distribution strategy
Invest your time wisely
Avoid the common pitfalls
Many job seekers express have similar, frustrating experiences in their job transition. Most of the causes for these experiences are completely avoidable.
In this Ask the Experts webinar, Karen Huller, CPRW, Owner and Founder of Charésumé (ka rez oo may) will address what you can do to remove resistance in your job transition momentum and gain traction fast.
Within 4 weeks you could be in-process with 3-5 viable opportunities and feel much more in control of your professional future.
Please join us to understand how you can UNVEIL YOUR BRILLIANCE and take charge of your career transition.

Join me and Kim Mohiuddin as we talk about what could be wrong with your resume. Kim owns a company called Movin’ On Up Resumes and has had a really cool approach to creating a resume (or, career marketing documents).
As Kim and I planned this webinar here are some other titles she thought of:
Job Search Stalled? It’s Not You, It’s Me. Signed, Your Resume.
Job Search Stalled? It Could Be Your Resume.
Could an Antiquated Resume Be Hindering Your Job Search?
When Bad Resumes Happen to Good Candidates—And How to Fix It!
Here are some things we’ll talk about:
The Resume Black Hole: What Happens After I Hit “Submit?” Talking about what the ATS is (software that analysis your resume, but she’ll go into more depth)
Navigating The Black Hole: How Do I Give Myself a Fighting Chance With an Electronic Screener?
Beyond the Black Hole: How Can I Optimize My Resume to Appeal to Human Decision-Makers Sharing simple formulas for how to write your opening profile, work history, education, and extras. She’ll also include some Word templates to get them started since most people have trouble formatting their own resumes and Word’s templates are pretty bad for visual and technical reasons (i.e. ATS systems don’t read tables properly and Word templates involve many tables).
In my job search my resume was my #1 enemy. It was keeping me out of interviews, but I didn’t realize it until months later.
