No FLUFF – I will not share over hashed information, meaning you will not get the usual outdated articles that preach irrelevant HR practices that offer Recruiterno real value. Every topic that we will cover will be aimed on how a recruiter views you as a candidate. This is extremely important because many guides and how to tips simply fail to take this into perspective.

    This is a very helpful website. It lays it out in a clear way how to create a professional resume quickly and the pitfalls to avoid.

    it’s very simple to find out any topic on net as compared to books, as I found this piece of writing at this website.

    How do I handle the awkward but important “Salary Requirement” in a cover letter?

    • admin says:

      That is always a though decision to make, generally when they request a salary requirement they ether are working with a limited budget or just want to filter resumes quicker. For one it helps them during negotiations as you are starting out with the first bid so to say. Secondly it helps them filter the people who request way too much or way too little.
      I recommend going to salary.com and look for your position. To gain a better hand during the negotiation or to avoid being filtered it’s wise to give a range.
      You can state something
      “I expect a fair market wage for this position ranging from ### to ###”
      To get these numbers take 20% of the lower end, and add 20% to the higher end of the range”
      Keep in mind that if you are very qualified for this role and you have the experience, you could get away with not listing the requirement at all. If you can do the job and have accomplishments to back it up recruiters will not disqualify you immediately. This does however pose the risk of being filtered out, but in my opinion a good recruiter will not dismiss your resume because of it.
      If it’s a famous company you can go to glasdoor.com that site offers inside reviews and other information about certain companies that could be useful, some of them have the salaries listed as well.
      It’s definitely a though decision and there is no right or correct answer for it. I hope this added info helps you out.

        I feel very comfortable with your suggestion of giving a range.
        Thank you so much for answering so quickly. I have had major “resume writers block” this whole winter. I found your site with a google search this morning and was finally able to complete my resume today. I even managed a half way decent cover letter! I will probably continue to tweak it until I actually find a decent job but I felt a huge sense of relief and accomplishment by the time I was ready to step away from the computer. I will certainly recommend this site to my fellow job hunters……where is the Facebook LIKE button? lol

  5. admin says:

    I’m proud of you, most people take the easy way out and hire a professional resume writer. It’s never a one time deal, plus it helps you answer questions better during the interview process.

    Definitely continue to tweak it and make it applicable to the positions your are applying for, that is the best advise I can give you. Its better to apply to only 3 positions per day then it is to send it to 50 companies aimlessly.

    As for the Facebook LIKE button, that’s in the works, should be up soon.

    Just scheduled my first interview using my new resume!
    The hiring person told me that my “letter of introduction” , as she called it, was one of the things that stood out to her!! My cover letters of the past, on the rare occasion that I actually wrote one, where way too personal and my old resume was a rambling mess.
    I am also a Mac @ home – Windows @ work person and I followed your steps to turn my text edit document into a windows friendly .doc. (i had been pasting into the body of an email-not good) Obviously, they were able to open it…and since I have only sent out 2 resumes so far this week i knew exactly which job she was calling about. (Yes, I’ve been that clueless chick)
    I really wanted to express my appreciation. this is the second time I applied to this office – I don’t think she even realizes that- my previous attempt was that lame.
    Anyway, I’ll let you know how the interview goes!

  7. admin says:

    I’m so happy for you, this is the greatest compliment I’ve ever received. Targeting resumes to jobs is the only way to go to stand out.
    Here I am thinking that I’m aimlessly blogging into the world wide web, it really inspires me to write more. Definitely let me know how it goes.

    What kind of topics is everybody interested in?

    • Maria Kasser says:

      So…I’ve gotten called back 3 times so far. I feel like it’s getting silly already but from what i hear it is not uncommon. So I am just being as cooperative & flexible as I can be. If I get this position the pay will be approx 25% higher than my last job! So keeping my fingers crossed…

  8. admin says:

    Facebook share and like buttons are up, help me grow the site

  9. Kerry says:

    My wife and i have been really comfortable that Raymond could finish off his resume from your ideas he received through your web pages. It’s not at all simplistic to just find yourself giving away ideas which men and women have been making money from. So we remember we have the blog owner to appreciate for this. The entire illustrations you made, the easy site navigation, the friendships you give support to foster – it’s got many wonderful, and it’s facilitating our son and our family

    • admin says:

      That is great, learning how to write resumes at an early age will go a long way. Let me know if you have any specific questions, I’ll be glad to take a look at the resume if you like.

    Hi, thanks for the most helpful CL tips and advice. I really appreciate the time and effort in helping revise my CL. This is an awesome blog!

    • admin says:

      I think you’ll be just fine, you got the basics down and it sounds like you know the positions that you want to go after, don’t worry too much about your Cover Letter, and focus more on your Resume as that is the one document that will serve you time after time. Thanks for reaching out

  12. Elle says:

    Very helpful blog with great tips for CL and resumes, thanks again for taking the time to look over my cover letter. Appreciate it!

  13. Jason says:

    Just wanted to say that this has helped me get my first interview. I struggled finding a good website that helped me build my resume and when I did they usually wanted to charge me. Thank you for doing all this for free and thank you for taking the time to look at my resume. I shared your website with my friends

    • admin says:

      Congrats on the first interview. I didn’t help to much just guided you a little bit, you did most of the work. I’m proud of you, always keep improving and keep me updated on how things go for you
