Now Is a Good Time to Update Your Resume Resume Update Checklist Accomplishments with measured results: Outline specific examples of your latest achievements. Use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, and Result) formula to describe the achievement. Quantify the results with dollar amounts, headcounts, and percentages whenever possible. Talk about improvements to quality, productivity, efficiency, savings, and revenue. Challenges and obstacles: Highlight any challenges or obstacles you faced and overcame. What happened, what did you do, and what was the outcome? Explain other opportunities that you identified to improve processes while you addressed the challenges. Expansion of scope: Did you gain new responsibility? Perhaps you assumed a new program, a larger staff, a new satellite office, or a new product line. Show how your authority and responsibility has grown and be sure to show the numbers. Education, skills and training: Any new professional certifications, college degrees, or specialized courses? Don’t forget to include new languages and technical skills that you picked up in 2014. (Start compiling notes of your 2014 accomplishments for a sparkling new resume for 2015 job opportunities. It is a terrific way to stay prepared for job openings that lie ahead.)
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential...these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence. - Confucius -
Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
Common Sense is Not So Common: Quit fidgeting. Sit up straight. Smile. Make eye contact. Stop playing with your hair. We’ve all heard this type of “nagging” from our parents at one point or another when we were young. Turns out job seekers could use some of that advice while interviewing, as employers pointed to this lack of body language etiquette as a factor that could potentially harm a candidate’s chances of landing the job. If you thought that etiquette and common courtesy came naturally to people, newsflash — it doesn’t. Some examples of candidates crossing that line during an interview include: looking bored (55 percent), dressing inappropriately (53 percent), coming off as arrogant (53 percent), bad mouthing previous employers (50 percent), answering a phone call in front of the hiring manager (49 percent), not doing homework on the company or role (39 percent), sharing TMI (20 percent) and asking personal questions (17 percent).
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. Thomas Edison

Newsroom News Release July 3, 2014 BLS: Staffing Job Growth Remains Robust in June Temporary Help Up 8.1% "Employment in temporary help services continued to trend up (+10,000) and has grown by 216,000 over the past year," according to Erica L. Groshen, commissioner of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, commenting on the June jobs report released today. Seasonally adjusted staffing employment was up 0.4% over May and 8.1% over June of last year. While year-to-year growth for the month was the lowest since November, according to BLS, the average over the past eight months has been a robust 8.7%. Nonseasonally adjusted BLS data, which estimate the actual number of jobs in the economy, indicated that staffing employment increased by 31,400 in June, up 1.1% from May. On a year-to-year basis, there were 8.2% more staffing employees in June than in the same month last year. "The continued strength of staffing employment growth reflects continued improvement in overall economic growth," says Richard Wahlquist, president and chief executive officer of the American Staffing Association. "The especially good news for job seekers is that staffing and recruiting firms are reporting increases in requests from businesses across many sectors for candidates to fill permanent positions." Total U.S. nonfarm payroll employment increased by 288,000 jobs in June, BLS reported. Monthly job gains averaged 272,000 over the past three months, up from 201,000 per month since June of last year. "Job gains were widespread" in June, Goshen said, "led by employment growth in professional and business services [which includes staffing], retail trade, food services, and health care." The unemployment rate declined from 6.3% in May to 6.1% in June. BLS also released preliminary May employment data for search and placement services. Seasonally adjusted, employment increased 1.6% from April to May, totaling 314,100. The 4,800 new jobs were the strongest numeric increase of any month since February 2013.
