GETTING THE RIGHT JOB September 11, 2008 crizlai In life, anything that can go wrong will go wrong, and at the worst possible time, in the worst possible way. What could be the worst possible time than when you are in need of a job? No job, no income. No income, no money. No money, no life, as you would not be able to feed even your stomach full. What would be the first step then to get a job? You would need a resume. Many people thought that applying for a job is easy just by simply writing a normal resume. What they do not know is that most employers would look at the resumes seriously. One of the most looked at section would be the salary section where you would state how much you would be asking from the employer. Putting a high amount would not be impressive in the eyes of the employer. Neither would stating an amount too low be beneficial to you. Somehow you will need to find out how much your job would be worth in your area. Another mistake that would cost your failure in securing a job would be the content and layout of your resume. The resume would look like a novel with no bullets and filled with cluttered information. Moreover, the font size would be either too small or too big, no focus at all, one too many spelling errors, inconsistency in alignments, and no “ingredients” at all in it. There are so many mistakes that most of the applicants would make during an application for a job. If you are not sure on how to get the best resume to secure a job, I would advise you to check on some of the many Boston resumes available online. At least you would be having some guidelines to your perfect resume. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
