Resume Review for Sales
Recruitment constitutes practices and activities, carried out within a given organization with the main intention of identifying and attracting a potential workforce. efore starting the recruitment process, the organization should determine the needs of the organization, which will assist in establishing the number of employees they will need. It is also important to approximate the number of applicants needed for each position, but it is more important to review the current workforce to establish an employee who the organization should consider for the opening. After this, the organization can now recruit the position.
The organization decides the targeted applicants. In particular, the organization verifies the applicant to attract to the organization's open positions. When applicants begin applying to the open positions, it is now that the recruiter can provide relevant information concerning the organization. Additionally, the applicants send or submit their application materials responding to the…… [Read More]
If you have accomplished some tasks that relate to numbers of people you supervised, or dollars saved, a percentage increase in performance or production you were responsible for, make sure that is spelled out clearly.
The length of the resume is important too. If you are just graduated, then one page is sufficient. If you have some years experience with more to say, then you might stretch it to a page and a half. But you must ensure that every sentence you use is needed and has content that helps your cause. If you stretch it to two pages, take your stack of resumes and pitch them in the trash because that's what will happen in your potential employer's office. Keep it brief.
By all means, customize your cover letter and resume for the specific company and job you are applying. That is crucial. Rewrite your resume ten times if…… [Read More]

The purpose of a resume is to enable you to clearly show yourself to the potential employer without your presence. It is meant to clearly indicate who you are and what you can do on paper and still allow the person reading your resume have a clear view of you. This then calls for clarity in writing and ensuring all the relevant details are captured by the resume.
In analyzing the resume by Juan Rodriguez, there are several issues that come up as mistakes that should have been avoided hence making the resume not clear and missing the target that resumes are always meant to meet.
On the career objective, Juan was very vague, too general and his indication of 'any job' was a sign of uncertainty in what he wants to get involved in within the company. He should have narrowed it down to a specific department and…… [Read More]

Also, a resume should not include hobbies that are irrelevant to the job being sought, or even long past job experiences irrelevant to the job, such as occupations held in high school. A resume can be chronological, that is can contain a list of jobs in the order in which the applicant held the jobs from then until now, or it can be functional, highlighting the applicant's skills. Regardless, an employee wishing to get his or her foot in the door should remember when writing a resume that an employer is likely to spend only a few seconds glancing at the document. Unless the resume writer has a great deal of interesting experiences, he or she should try to confine the listed qualifications to a single, readable page, and know what to include and what to delete on this clear, readable, as well as functional document. Always ask, what will…… [Read More]

The resume narrative in this paper was far more flavored with descriptive words and phrases than the Website copy. The sentences in the resume copy were intentionally packed with positive images and carefully crafted to show the HR people that will read it that I really was pushing hard to make an impression. In fact the resume copy was borderline too self-promotional, but on the other hand just turning in a bland letter of introduction usually achieves absolutely nothing. Typically HR people go through a stack of resumes and letters of introduction every day, and most of those letters are either poorly written or they just don't convey the emotion of the applicant very well. The resume letter in this instance is taking a bold stance, using sentences that…… [Read More]
English -- the CV Writing
To what extent is it appropriate to embellish a CV? What do you think is the most important thing to consider when writing a CV?
A resume is supposed to present 'your best self' to a prospective employer. When presenting a list of employment 'highlights,' it is appropriate to use language that is complementary and also to include the most flattering aspects of that history. However, making up titles, degrees, dates of employment and duties is not only unethical -- it can be easily fact-checked and shown to be a lie. Most employers will also consider 'sins of omission' to be lies. These 'sins' include leaving out employment positions when a complete, chronological list is requested. It is not necessary to be candid about every unflattering thing that was said in a job performance review, of course, but if facts about every place where…… [Read More]
The resume is an important part of any job application. To help you create the perfect resume, our resume outline template is available. This template shows what you should put on your resume, and why. A resume is simply a depiction of what has been important in your formation as a person and as a professional. It is what recruiters look to for information about you, and it helps them to see if you will be the right person for the job.
The resume is really where you get your foot in the door—it is not going to be what gets you the job in the end. Therefore, the focus of the resume should really be on experience, education and skills—the three most important things that will stand out to any recruiter or hirer looking for a candidate to fill a position. Experience will matter most because it will indicate…… [Read More]

Studies and research indicate the potential applicant may be examined and introduced by the resume he or she presents, but that those facts need to be checked out so that the information can be verified for the employer's benefit.
One can tell a lot about an applicant by reading the applicant's resume. Facts about work life, performance and education are all things that can be extracted from a resume to evaluate a potential applicant and decide whether or not to interview that person.
Resumes provide a thumbnail sketch of who the applicant is professionally and what they will be able to offer the company that is being applied to. It is important to check references and experience and education claims, but overall the resume is a synopsis of the applicant's professional life and provides the details of that life.

The person/message feedback reflects whether the focus is on the person who sent the feedback or the message. The immediate/delayed one is focused on the timeline of the feedback. The monitoring one has to do with the spontaneity and sincerity of the feedback. Finally, the supportive-critical one reflects the divergence or convergence of the feedback with the original message.
Self-centered feedback is a combination of the feedback types previously mentioned, being a person-focused one, most likely supportive, intentional and positive. This type of feedback can enhance the communication content if it reflects a sincere, unbiased opinion, but because it's likely to be subjective, it can distort the feedback message and implicitly become detrimental to the communication.
It is said that non-verbal communication accounts for more than 90% of the message sent out in an interview. In fact the verbal content weights only 7% of the message the interviewer…… [Read More]
However, Finder mentions that this type of searching on the Internet via Facebook and MySpace is in reality not that widespread, due to the fact that most potential employers and college/university company recruiters consider it to be unethical or somewhat underhanded. Nonetheless, Finder makes it clear that all those seeking employment must review their information on these types of social networks and remove photographs and text that might be viewed as inappropriate by potential employers. One way of doing this is to use settings on sites like Facebook and MySpace that limit access to certain pages and information and to be very vigilant concerning what is posted and who has access to it. Overall, Alan Finder offers some very logical advice which all potential employees and students should carefully consider before posting personal information on the Internet.

Before resuming my educational endeavors at the University of Phoenix I was fortunate enough to experience life and many of its travails as a business person and employee. During my tenure in those endeavors I observed a number of events that I considered unethical, and a number of actions taken by individuals that I found both reprehensible and repulsive. I was often amazed at the capabilities of mankind to justify their actions, when it was quite evident that such actions would not be considered ethical in any circumstances, no matter what the justification.
Ethics has always been a concern, whether individuals worked in education, business or even the medical field. One early study determined that there were many young managers that had reported being asked implicitly to do things they personally believed were unethical, and sometimes illegal (Badzek, Mitchell, Marra, Bower,1998). Oftentimes these young managers feel the pressure to…… [Read More]

Gregory Reyes, Corporate Director Mentor-Protege Programs at DynCorp International.
Reason selected. With my background in logistics, and particularly LOGCAPIII, I was familiar with the work of ANHAM Prime Vendor LLC. I knew that DynCorp International (DI) was a major competitor of ANHAM, and wondered what the opinion might be at DynCorp of the business case analysis (BCA) that argued a transition from LOGCAPIII to LOGAPIV would be prohibitive, considering that the run out to the exit from Iraq was short. As it turned out, and while I was formulating my questions regarding this topic, a press release called attention to the awarding of the prestigious Nunn-Perry Award to DynCorp International for its outstanding Mentor-Protege team formed with its small business partner, CenterScope Technologies, Inc. (CSTI). The award is given annually by the Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP). What really attracted my attention was the growth achieved…… [Read More]

"How to build your network": Interview
According to Uzzi & Dunlap (2005), while ability and talent are certainly important, who you know is often as important as what you know in the workplace. As well as restating this old cliche in their article "How to build your network," they also offer the reader important advice for targeting who is 'worth' knowing and cultivating within an organization. While power in an organizational hierarchy may be important, it is also vital to establish connections with people who generate social ties or bridges between other organizational members.

career interest is accounting. Accountancy is the process of evaluating the financial information about business entities to users such as the managers of the shareholders (Elliot, & Elliot, 2004). Accountancy falls into three areas: accounting, bookkeeping, and auditing.

Value of Developing an Electronic Career Portfolio
An electronic portfolio happens to be an interactive online approach which enables one to provide a complete review of one's achievements, abilities as well as experiences. It is a space in which one is able to put together one's own resume as well as samples of one's work for potential business employers. E-portfolio pages of content vary from social media websites like MySpace or even Facebook. An e-portfolio goes beyond a traditional resume, offering a range of details about one's qualifications and abilities in more than a single medium.

Technology enables students to learn process without divorcing it from the factual information and data inherent to traditional educational expectations.
Technology can be used in a variety of different contexts and with many different overall instructional paradigms in place, and as long as it is effectively integrated into existing teaching plans and styles -- or if new overall instructional methods are built with a technological focus -- a high degree of efficacy has been found from most technological applications (Hartley 2007). By rooting all learning in direct interaction with media and peers rather than relying on the largely passive instructional methods of traditional education, it inherently and almost automatically becomes more effective as true learning only occurs with interaction in the constructivist perspective (Hartley 2007). As students engage in repeated learning activities that require critical thinking skills in the locating and selection of information, they will also become better able…… [Read More]
Personal Marketing Plan
Current Marketing Situation: I am graduating school and entering the workforce. My previous work experience is somewhat limited, mainly to retail work, but I have a solid education from a great school. I have a degree in marketing and this has prepared me for a career in marketing, advertising or possibly sales management. My present job is inadequate for my new education level. I like the people I work with, but the pay and the nature of the tasks are more suitable for someone with less experience and education. I believe that with a better education, I am prepared to take on positions of responsibility and to begin a progressive career path.
SWOT Analysis: I have a lot of different strengths upon which I draw to succeed. I am organized and intelligent, and this allows me to accomplish the things that I need to accomplish, on time…… [Read More]
I was able to use these enhanced skills to successfully set the store apart from the competition by means of product differentiation and targeted sales strategies, as well as specific product promotions. I worked with my team and the community to enhance the benefit our products could provide to customers.
2. Why do you want this job?
I believe that your company and I can be of mutual benefit to each other. For myself, I feel that Audi has more self-development opportunities than any other company.

I feel that my years of experience and skills developed during my studies and professional experience will help the company move forward to achieve new goals every year.

As a Command Sargent Major, I would be the "senior enlisted adviser to the commanding officer of a battalion-sized or larger unit," including "all other enlisted personnel within the unit (Guerra 2010). Moreover, "Command sergeant majors have the task of upholding military customs and traditions," which means that I would have the honor of receiving due respect for the U.S. Army traditions and process that make my personal and professional goals a reality. ithout the existence of the Army, and the hierarchial process that I can work upward to gain responsibility, financial security, and greater self-confidence, I do not think that I would have the passion and determination in life that I do today.
My Professional Goals: Gaps and Solutions

Printed Questionnaires. Manual data input method is appropriate for printed questionnaires. Since questionnaires are printed and therefore can be accessed as a hardcopy, the only way to input data on it is through manual writing. If the data will be transferred into a database, the appropriate method of data input is through data entry.
Data entry on a computer is the appropriate method for this situation. For instance, while a surveyor is communicating with an interview over the phone, a computer in front of him can help him take note of the information from the telephone survey.
Bank Check. Data entry to a database or bar code are the appropriate methods for this situation. Bank Check information can be keyed into a database or through scanning of the bank check's bar code.
etail Tags. Bar code is the most appropriate method of data input from a retail tag.…… [Read More]

long-term success in your specific area of interest. How have your previous experiences prepared you for this professional career? What areas of specialization within the Carroll School of Management do you believe will be most valuable in achieving your goals? What specific short-term career objectives have you set to assist you in achieving your long-term career plans?
I will never feel successful if success means putting up my feet and feeling satisfied. I don't work that way. I will only feel successful for small moments, like when I solve a huge problem in my company or when we avert trouble: when we can turn around a failing operation or stay afloat in spite of falling stock prices. Personally, I could be working in a behind-the-scenes managerial position in a company that I cared about and even if my salary was not great I would be successful because every day I…… [Read More]
Accuracy of data input is important. What method of data input would be best for each of the following situations and why:
Printed questionnaires - Beyond using a manually-based approach to capture this data and transcribing it onto computer screens, the best possible approach would be code the questionnaire so responses could be read with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software (Nibler, 1993).
Designing an on-screen software application that will allow for those giving the survey to capture their responses directly on-screen as the respondents provide their answers (Nibler, 1995).
Bank checks -- It is a best practice to rely on the Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) codes across the bottom of a check to ensure account number and routing number are correctly read. In addition to MICR codes, companies are increasingly using OCR to read the figures on the check as well.
Retail tags -- the best possible approach for…… [Read More]
What is Project HOPE and what are the goals of the program?
In basic terms, Project HOPE according to the OPPAGA eport (2004) was "a pilot program in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties intended to break the cycle of prostitution and solicitation." The project was created by the Laws of Florida -- Chapter 2002-297. Made up of two components, i.e. prostitutes and johns (individuals soliciting prostitutes), those who participated in the program were requested to enroll into the same by "judges, state attorneys, public defenders, probation officers, and jail staff" (OPPAGA eport, 2004). It should be noted that as provided for by the law under which it was created, the program had its doors open to any individual convicted of prostitution. As the OPPAGA eport (2004) further points out, the program was mandated to "provide intake and screening, drug screening and urinalysis tests, psychosocial assessments, case management, short-term counseling,…… [Read More]

I am guided by a strong sense of ethics. During my work in Riyadh as a project engineer, I was faced with a situation where I had to balance the need for worker safety against a project that due to rising costs was headed over budget. Legally, I was under little obligation to protect the safety of the workers, many of whom were migrants from other countries.
However, that was something I simply could not do. I wish to be a leader, and good leaders do not corrupt their values for a quick fix. This situation forced me to be more creative in order to keep the project within budget and I was able to achieve this by renegotiating terms with some of my company's key vendors.

Whereas a resume is easy to hid the truth in words, a portfolio requires the nurse to prove their case, as if in court, through the use of physical evidence. The use of professional portfolios in nursing is also beneficial to the individual nurse, in that it forces him or her to evaluate their own development and to continue to strive to ensure that they are meeting all areas of expectations. For these reasons, many nursing professionals argue that a similar requirement as that used in the United Kingdom should be used in the United States as part of nursing licensing. This is especially true as it pertains to those who teach nursing to adolescents because this job, like the teacher's, requires constant review of the teaching method, which is best done through physical evidentiary proof.
For example, Annette Jinks spend years conducting national surveys and interviews throughout the United…… [Read More]
I coordinated the project's summer field internship program for graduate students seeking to work overseas as well as helped build database of non-governmental organizations (NGO)s that worked on issues of human rights and advocacy. I have also honed my legal expertise at the Law Offices of Lewis and Associates/Lewis Settlement Group in my work on loan processing.
My experience in research and coordination with international agencies and my detailed and methodological capacity, which has been sharpened through practical experience in quantitative and qualitative fact-finding and reviewing painstaking legal documentation, makes my preparation ideal for the Fellowship. The background I hope to receive in strategic planning, and specifically Emergency Planning, will be of invaluable aid to the work I hope to pursue after graduation in the international development sector. Emergency Planning is an area of critical knowledge I hope to add to my resume in addressing social inequities in East Asia,…… [Read More]
The Returning of Soldiers from Combat in America
Although Earnest Hemmingway's, "Soldiers Home" (187) was written in 1925, and the war at that time was different, there are several things in the story that still ring true today for servicemen.

Krebs was a young man from Kansas who is in college at the time that he is drafted into the Marine Corps.

As told by the author Krebs fights in some of the toughest battles that were ever fought, "Belau ood, Soissons, Champagne St. Mihiel, and The Argonne Forrest" (187), he feels out of place when…… [Read More]

Memos - the formatting of memos is among my list of least useful formatting because usually the information it contains is in general form.
White papers - this is sometimes not useful because of the length of information that it usually requires to become informative.
Press Releases - this is sometimes not useful especially when the integrity of the contents is questionable.
Contracts and Agreements - the formatting of contracts and agreements is sometimes bad because of the technicality of some conditions contained in them, thus, providing unclear information to readers.
Proposals - sometimes the format of proposals is not useful because of the limitations in terms of information that proposals contain.… [Read More]
A prospective change of career would be one in which I would become a novelist and I would be able to write my books, do research in various places, set my own working hours and get recognition for my work. In order to gain more insight into this field, I have met with Karen Malloy at Raider Publishing.

We then exchanged a few pleasantries and got to talking about writing. Before having the opportunity to ask my own questions, Miss Malloy wanted to know…… [Read More]
