How to Write the Perfect Resume
By Vivian Giang and Melissa Stanger | Business Insider – Fri, Nov 30, 2012 10:30 AM EST * Email0 * * * Share27 * * Print
It takes recruiters an average of "six seconds before they make the initial 'fit or no fit' decision" on candidates based on resumes, according to research conducted by TheLadders. With this kind of competition, you need to have a flawless resume to get through the screening process.

We write a lot about resumes — what to do, what not to do — so now we're introducing a guide to crafting a curriculum vitae that will get you into the interview room. However, these rules are general advice we compiled from career experts. Everyone should tailor their own resume depending on the industry they're in and the position they're applying for.

Tailor your resume to the specific position you're applying for.

elizabethdaniellephotos / statigr.amYou're basically selling yourself on that piece of paper, so mold the information to reflect what your potential employer is looking for in an ideal job candidate. This is different depending on your industry.

Miriam Salpeter advises in U.S.News & World Report that candidates should study the company's web site and "look for repeated words and phrases, taglines, and hints about their philosophical approaches."

Then, "mirror some of their language and values in your resume."

Put your name and contact info at the top.

Business InsiderThis sounds simple, but Peter S. Herzog, author of the book "How To Prolong Your Job Search: A Humorous Guide to the Pitfalls of Resume Writing," says that applicants will try putting this important information on the side or bottom.

This is how it should be done:
1. Put your name in bold face and/or regular caps.
2. Include your full address and home, work (optional) and/or cell phone numbers and your…...

Bobs Life

... Most of what I did when I went there was help with Bingo, and do the Meals on Wheels program. One of the people who I worked with there was a man named Bob. Bob was older, maybe in his 40's or 50's, and he was schizophrenic and slightly mentally retarded. He was a nice guy, but he was quiet most of the time because he was slow and was aware of it. He still lived with his parents; he was mentally capable enough to be able to take care of himself, but not quite live by himself. Unfortunately, Bob's parents were verbally abusive towards him. He had always been a burden to them and they let him know it. It was sad, but it was Bob's life. When his birthday was coming up, everyone at the Weingart Center started brainstorming on what we should get him. Knowing that his life has been spent being made to feel like he sucks at everything and will never be any good, I thought we should get him a trophy or a plaque that showed him we thought he was doing a good job and that we cared about him there. This was the idea we ended up going with, and I was proud that I thought of it, when I saw how happy he was, when he opened it. After that birthday, Bob started to peek out of his shell just a little. He made friends with a homeless woman about his age who stopped by the Weingart Center looking for food handouts. Bob always gave her something and he told me about his crush on her in the giddiest way I've ever seen a grown man talk about anything.......

Yes Teenage Life Sucks

...Teenagers...what images and words come to mind? If you are like most People, the first houghts will be negative:wild,irresponsible,immoral,violent. For generations People have complained about young people, but today the intensity of concern and the level of fear seems deeper than the “when I was young” lessons of our grandparents. Much of the public’s critique of teens revolves around parents’ perceived inability to be involved with their children and teach them the right values. It is not just the elderly who question the lack of values they see in our youth; parents of teenagers share the same concerns. The Current Environment for Youth As we begin a new millennium, the mood of the nation is optimistic. Most public opinion polls show high consumer confidence, strong satisfaction with the country, and a belief that the nation is on the right track. At the same time, people are very worried about the nation’s youth. “Education” has been consistently ranked as the top issue facing the nation, and the few polls that ask about children and families show a high level of concern for them. Adults have questioned teens’ values for generations and there is certainly a wealth of public opinion data that looks like generational griping. For example, in 1989, adults were asked to compare the youth of the 1980s to teenagers twenty years prior, and adults responded that “today’s youth” were much more selfish, materialistic, and reckless than a generation before. A decade earlier,...

Life

...Life is beautiful but not always easy, it has problems, too, and the challenge lies in facing them with courage, letting the beauty of life act like a balm, which makes the pain bearable, during trying times, by providing hope Happiness, sorrow, victory, defeat, day-night are the two sides of the me coin. Similarly life is full of moments of joy, pleasure, success and comfort punctuated by misery, defeat, failures and problems. There is no human being on Earth, strong, powerful, wise or rich, who has not experienced, struggle, suffering or failure. No doubt, life is beautiful and every moment – a celebration of being alive, but one should be always ready to face adversity and challenges. A person who has not encountered difficulties in life can never achieve success. Difficulties test the courage, patience, perseverance and true character of a human being. Adversity and hardships make a person strong and ready to face the challenges of life with equanimity. There is no doubt that there can be no gain without pain. It is only when one toils and sweats it out that success is nourished and sustained. Thus, life is and should not be just a bed of roses; thorns are also a part of it and should be accepted by us just as we accept the beautiful side of life. The thorns remind one of how success and happiness can be evasive and thus not to feel disappointed and disheartened rather remember that the pain of thorns is short-lived, and the beauty of life would soon......

Life or Death

...1/26/14 Life or Death In a world where the idea of giving life is greatly measured by a choice rather than examining the true meaning of life has created much controversy particularly in the United States. In this ad we will examine how Abortion has changed the world as we know it. There are many different opinions regarding abortion and whether or not a woman has a right to choose life or take it away. As we begin to explore the ad pictured here we see a partially developed fetus where you are able to determine it’s definitely a human being forming. I can see little fingers, formed eye sockets, lips, and a nose. There is no doubt this is a breathable human life forming into a complete being. The fetus sits sort of large in the middle of the advertisement with a caption that reads “She can make a tiny fist, get hiccups, suck her thumb, and feel pain. Yet she can be legally put to death by Abortion until the day she is born” pretty powerful words in my opinion. This ad is giving us a visual of what is real and not make believe. Some want women to believe that what they feel inside of their womb growing is no more than a product of their imagination. We can see with our own eyes that this is clearly a baby, a human being. How can something that is not alive and growing suck a thumb, or move fingers or feel pain? In the ad I can see every part of the developing child......

...1918 in Maryland” (Douglass100). He was a leader in the abolitionist movement and had a knack for wanting to learn. He never lost sight of what he wanted in his life no matter what he went through. He never stopped his aspiration to read and write, even though it was illegal for slaves to have an education. He learned a lot of lessons from literacy; there is never a lack of things to be grateful for, knowledge is freedom, and the opportunity to become a leader. Douglass grew up with nothing that we have, which is stuff we take for granted today. Douglass never gave up and never had a lack of things to be grateful for. He couldn’t have freedom of speech, knowing when he’s going to eat, knowing what he is going to sleep on, having clothes, and an education. These are basic needs that every person, even children have today. Especially teenagers and children, some don’t even care about their education, but that’s what Douglass lived for, even though he’s been through hell and beyond what any of us today experience. Children are so ungrateful nowadays they don’t take advantage of the free schooling they get, they’d rather skip class, and they haven’t even been through half of what Douglass went through. Douglass fought, and even though he didn’t have much to be grateful for he fought for his education, he fought for his life, even though he meant nothing to his owners. He didn’t even have the right to learn as he says “My mistress, who had kindly commenced to instruct......

Suck My D

...in a never-ending solitude. Its outline is jagged, angular, from the protruding bones which have been weathered away to an argent hue. The translucent film covering the skeleton conceals nothing at all. The thestral seems incomplete, as if something has been lost and can never be retrieved. Even the wings, its supposed sign of power, look as if they’ll simply flutter away in the whirls of wind. Thoughts of Mother tend to fade away then. It seems as if when you look at it you realise that you are, perhaps, as insubstantial as everything else in the world. One day, you will be lost in the obscurity of infinity, a mere blot in the world’s life but for this second you are something more than that. Something eternal. The thestral gives you a glimpse of infinity, of what could lie beyond the land of living. It gives you hope that life is not simply a thing of darkness and decay but there's a thing which is above us, transcendent, and seeing the thestral reveals part of the answer to everything. It shows you that Mother can’t really be dead. That though she might be an illusion, she is part of the lone thestral for why else could you suddenly see the thestral? The last idea isn’t yet a lucid one but there is some truth lying beneath it. If truth is there, everything else is too. You drop your hand onto its barbed spine, brushing the tips of your fingers against the curves of it. It’s almost hauntingly beautiful, the thestral, with the serene air it emits. Your......

Why Socialism Sucks

...Why Socialism Sucks Brandon Smith Alexander Tokarev 4/26/2013 We live in a world in where different ideologies take over the minds of individuals throughout the world. We have different mindsets which are the products of individuals and the situation in which they have been raised over the course of their life. With these ideologies some are conjured up in the minds of people with immense power over the people of their nation. Governments take the form of different types. There are many different types; Capitalism, Communism, Totalitarianism, Oligarchy, Socialism, Democracy, and even Social Democracy. However I write about only one today…Socialism. I will be taking various examples from Milton Friedman’s The Road to Serfdom. In Milton’s first chapter “The Abandoned Road” he speaks of the history of what we have been founded upon. Individualism speaks to our very core, with the development of Socialism we have been straying too far from what we know, what works. In chapter two, “The Great Utopia”, he speaks about how the French writers who laid the foundations of Socialism call for the control of the people through a strict dictatorship. This dictatorship that would take place will inevitably call for the end of all revolutions of the people so that the government may put its plans into action. Democracy and Socialism have one thing in common: equality. However with Democracy it calls for equality in liberty and freedom whereas Socialism calls for equality through......

...adhering to food guidelines as it is done in post-secondary. 3. The course,” Mathematics for Work and Everyday Life” should be taught as a mandatory course and not as an alternative to academic or applied math. It teaches you math skills required in everyday life such as taxes, mortgages, investing, and borrowing. It should also be a mandatory course due to the fact that most of the students do not that such a course exists, as an elective. Making it compulsory would help students in the future creating responsible adults who have the necessary information to be successful in their everyday life. 4. School should start at a later time as 8:20 am is too early for teenagers, as the activity level of their brain is not at its peak at that time of the day. Scientific studies show that a teenager’s brain starts performing at its best at 10am or as late as noon. Teenage brains produce melatonin later in the night as compared to adults. Melatonin is a sleep inducing chemical released by the body. As a teenagers body is undergoing an important developmental phase. Sleep is critical during this period as it aids in the development process. It also helps is retention of information which is the core of learning, while sleeping the mind converts short term memory into long term memory storing information. Students need 9-10 hours of sleep a day but cannot meet that goal as life and school revolves around adults who require 7-8 hours of sleep. Hence students receive inadequate......

...Life sucks. It really does suck. You put in effort and all you receive is crap in return. Life makes you want to curl up in a ball put on some Adele and cry. Why does life suck so much? Well one reason is because you put so much into life that you expect life to give you some good back. But that is not how life works. You fill yourself with a false reality but the actual truth is that life doesn’t care. Life doesn’t care if you do hours of good deeds. Life doesn’t care if you spent hours working on a project. Life doesn’t care. Life likes to push you down when you are already low. Life just watches you while you are in misery and laugh and dream up ideas how to make your life harder. Life is just a cruel joke. Life sets up a cruel game for humans to play. The cruelness of the game is that there is no right and wrong answer, no, the answers are wrong and will result in disappointment. Yes, at times one might believe that they have found a path and answer that is right and they might think that life has finally given them a break and decide to help them out. However this idea is flawed. This is because life gave you that opportunity because it knew that later on life would be capable of setting one up for disappointment and failure. So at the end of the day, life sucks....

...Disaster Risk Management Hydrometeorological hazards such as floods, droughts and tropical cyclones afflict many regions of the world, but their impact in terms of lives lost and livelihoods disrupted tends to fall most heavily on the poor in developing countries. Climate change threatens to heighten these impacts in many areas, both by changing the frequency and/or intensity of extreme events and by bringing changes in mean conditions that may alter the underlying vulnerability of populations to hazards. The result in the decades to come may be an increase in the global burden of weather-related disasters: events that can threaten the sustainability of development processes and undermine progress toward poverty reduction. Holistic management of disaster risk requires action to reduce impacts of extreme events before, during and after they occur, including technical preventive measures and aspects of socio-economic development designed to reduce human vulnerability to hazards. Approaches toward the management of climate change impacts also have to consider the reduction of human vulnerability under changing levels of risk. A key challenge and opportunity therefore lies in building a bridge between current disaster risk management efforts aimed at reducing vulnerabilities to extreme events and efforts to promote climate change adaptation. There is a need to understand better the extent to which current disaster management practices reflect future adaptation needs and......

MEMORIES Jazmin Llana I well remember these banks Where I would often stumble and fall In my pursuit of butterflies Or brightly colored birds. I would be covered with dirt while My quarry danced And flew away to light On the grass by the wayside, As if I saying: come on, don’t give up For truly, happiness is hard to catch. When I was a child, I thought We owned even the snails on the farm Which we would often cook with kangkong And suck out the sweetness of the world From every shell, oh what delight! I thought the land was ours- The birds would cry out In protest as we children gleaned The remnants of the harvest, Not minding if we were cut and scratched By the remaining palay leaves. Now the banks have narrowed; The bird’s cries are more intense For the people have nothing more to eat. I can no longer run after Butterflies or brightly colored birds, They have flown to the fields Now fenced by titles And deadly weapons- Truly, justice is hard to catch....
