Resume Typos

Posted on July 15, 2015

We have reviewed and edited thousands of resumes and CVs.

However,...

Saying ‘No’ at Work

Posted on July 13, 2015

There are people who feel reluctant to say ‘no’ to people. Even if they don’t really want to do something because they are asked by someone they know they (family member, friend, relative) they can’t reject. This later can become a problem when one is distracted by too many requests… It is a little bit...

How Can Your Creativity Grant You The Job?

Posted on July 10, 2015

Last time we wrote about creative people and what kind of jobs could be the best match for them.

Career Challenges: Transition to Retirement

Posted on July 8, 2015

Everything seems to has its end as well as its beginning in this world. The same goes for our career.

There are other situations when people tend to leave – when they are unhappy...

Career Challenges: References

Posted on July 3, 2015

Most of you have put a statement like “references are available upon request” at the end of a resume or CV. This sentence isn’t necessary at all because employers expect you to provide references when they ask for it anyway. But what if you are asked to be someone’s reference? Do you know what you...

For Those Who Have Never Had a Resume

Posted on July 2, 2015

If you have never had a resume but you desperately need one you have two options: either to try and write it on your own or ask someone else to do it. If you are better off with the second option then you need to carefully choose the person who will do it for you...

Career Challenges: Salary Negotiations

Posted on June 30, 2015
