Your Resume Needs a Sharp Focus


One of the big myths about job-hunting is that the more general you are about what you want to do, the more opportunities you will have, noted career-development therapist Janet Scarborough Civitelli in the Q&A interview she did with Quintessential Careers. “In fact, it is just the opposite. Simply clarifying a specific career goal and adding a focused positioning to your resume does wonders to increase marketability for many people. Hiring managers will not take the time to determine for you what a good match should be with your interests, values, and abilities” Civitelli observes.
