If you’re hunting for a new job for the first time in a few years because you fancy a new challenge, hanker after a promotion or would simply like a change of scene, then you need a killer resume. The piece of paper that you send off with your letter of application will enable you to get your foot in the door and hopefully secure you an invite to interview. However, simply listing your previous job roles, education and hobbies are not going to cut it in the twenty-first century. Take a look at these ways to enhance your resume.

It can sound like a bit of a chore, but your resume should be adapted to fit every single different job that you’re applying for. No two of your resumes should be the same. You should analyse the wording of each job advert you like the look of and try to echo this within your resume. If the company you are looking to apply to seeks a candidate to ‘network across the business’, and you have written that you ‘liaise with stakeholders’ change the wording. Many companies use machine screening and will not pick up on the similarities between these two actions.
Your business might currently be only you, but, all going well, it won’t stay that way forever. Hopefully, after taking some time to establish your business, you’ll reach a point where you need to think about hiring an employee if you’re going to grow in size. However, this isn’t as easy as some first time employer’s think. Below, we take a look at seven things you’ll need to know before, during, and after the hiring process.

I get it. Not everything can be completely rosey 100% of the time. It just wouldn’t be real life, would it? Without the sudden change in terms, things happening out of your control, and often these things can really bring you down to earth with a thump. It’s never pleasant, but how you deal with the situation just shows you exactly how you are as a person, and it can certainly make you stronger. It isn’t always easy staying calm in these sorts of difficult times, car accidents, injuries, that can take their toll on the old stress levels. So I wanted to share with you some of the best methods to help you keep your cool.
