"Resume writers beware: "Hacker" is the new "Rockstar". The point is well-said in this post.  Be specific.  Hard data always trumps soft stories on a resume.  "

"The phrase I really hate seeing is 'Able to work autonomously or in a team.'  At the start of my recruitment career, it was in at least 95% of the resumes I read and it has always driven me crazy!"

"Agreed with Amber! Implementation is a key part of rolling out a newly developed business product or program. It is an industry term and is a regular term in MBA and related studies. Can you think of better term(s) to describe implement?"

Posted on August 21, 2011 at 6:58pm 8 Comments

Fairly recently, influentials such as ERE and Monster were working to build momentum regarding the creation of a “Bill of Rights” for job seekers; specifically, to greatly improve the candidate experience.
