The Art of Selling Yourself!
To "sell" oneself on paper is not easy. Creating a resume is a design and construction job and a test of your writing skills as well. A resume can either be self written or written with professional help.
Self-written resumes are attractive with good fonts but the disadvantages of self-written resumes are that they may be unfocussed and carelessly organised. The candidate who gets the job is not always the most qualified; rather, the candidate with the best presentation is the one who gets hired.
A resume is what is most essential to communicate what we have been, what we are, and what capacity we have to push ourselves ahead in future. It should be effectively communicated and should not be perceived as a catalogue or records of our past life.
This is where professionally written resumes come in handy. What the employers require is an intelligently organized, easy-to-scan-or-read Resume without flowery language and exaggerated claims. It should be presented in such a way that even a busy reader should be able to grasp immediately the benefits the company will have on this suitable recruitment.
The skill to select and het in the right ingredients in the right way (to focus or tailor your resume), the ability to trim unwanted personal information, to cover up blemishes are all skills which will prevent from being screened out.
From the employer's point of view, he would get hundreds of resumes. Not everyone will get time to scan them all. For them, resumes are dry, boring documents, which would put them to sleep. That is why a resume should be impressive enough to perk them up and keep them awake. Apart from the education level, experience and contact information, the basic facts, which would influence the employer, should be provided.
Especially for persons in the art, advertising, marketing, or writing professions, the resumes are samples of their skills! The accomplishments mentioned in the resume get read by the employers and displays the skills and there are lesser chances of screening it out!
Learn to create a masterpiece, not just any other simple document which gets turned down easily!

Networking Masterclass - Part 2 Practicing Altruism
Practicing Altruism The 'Golden Rule' occurred in the Greek and Chinese cultures thousands of years before the Christian era: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." The spirit of the Golden Rule is one of generosity and altruism and is at the heart of any personal networking and 'right' living. Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'To have a friend, you have to be one', and his words are as true today as they ever were. You can test this out yourself by completing the following simple exercise: List ten people you know best: People You Know Best: H/N S/U1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. After each name, write an 'H' if the person is happy, or an 'N' if the person is not happy. Then write an 'S' if the person is selfish or a 'U' for unselfish. Rimland in Psychological Reports (51); Brain/Mind Bulletin 1983 defines 'selfish' as "A stable tendency to devote one's time and resources to one's own interests and welfare - an unwillingness to inconvenience oneself for others." In his experimental study the 2000 individuals who completed this exercise reported very few individuals who were both happy and selfish. The findings represent an interesting paradox. Selfish people are, by definition, those whose activities are devoted to bringing themselves happiness. Yet at least as judged by others, these selfish people are far less likely to be happy than those whose efforts are devoted to making others happy. So the Golden Rule in networking, as in life is if you think about the other person rather than yourself, not only is that going to increase your empathy/rapport skills but it will make you a much more attractive person to know and be a magnet for personal happiness.

You can get trapped in a black hole and frustrated that your career is not advancing to full potential.

Find Passion for Your Work
Most people spend approximately 25% to over 67% of their waking hours working. Eventually, most everyone will want to work in a career that they enjoy and are paid well enough to live a prosperous life. Yet, far too many people end up being miserable in their job and find themselves stuck in a career that they did not choose. People then get discouraged, produce less, and become disgruntled. Unfortunately, people then blame themselves or those they work for, when in truth there is rarely anything wrong with them or the people they work for. Instead, maybe their job selection process is flawed which causes them to fall into the wrong positions.
