by Louise Fletcher - Apr, 2014

  5 Things Recruiters Wish You Knew About LinkedIn
by Louise Fletcher - Aug, 2013
Even though LinkedIn is the number one online tool for professional recruiters, it often lets them down. Many recruiters fail to find the candidates they need – not because of problems with the site itself, but because simple profile mistakes render the candidates invisible. If this is happening to you, you’re missing out on great opportunities. So here are the top 5 things recruiters wish you knew about LinkedIn. 1. A...
 
  5 Days to a Killer Resume: Step 4
by Louise Fletcher - Aug, 2013
Let’s be honest. Recruiters are a jaded bunch. They’ve read thousands of resumes and seen the same stale phrases over and over again. To say they’re hard to impress is an understatement. But impressing them is not impossible. In fact it’s easy if you understand that what they’re looking for is proof. Proof that you will do a good job. Proof that you will deliver what they need. Proof that they’re not wasting their time if t...
 
  The Deadly Resume Trap that Stops Most of Us Reaching Our True Potential
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2013
Writing a resume is tough. After all, getting it wrong could spell the end of your dreams. But in trying to avoid making a bad impression, most people make a very dangerous mistake. I call it the conformity trap and it can kill your chances of getting the job you deserve. The truth is that when we are frightened of doing the wrong thing, we tend to play it safe. And the safest thing of all is to look at what others have...
 
  How to Answer the “Tell Me About Yourself” Question
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2013
“So…. Tell me about yourself.” It’s the interview question we all dread. And we dread it for good reason. It’s way too broad and we have no idea what the interviewer wants us to say. “Just be honest” is the advice given by many careers experts. So how’s this? Well, I’m 29. I’m scared of heights. I sometimes take a teddy bear with me when I go travelling. I love Coldplay. I still smoke even though I told everyone...
 
  Personal Branding is Out. Reputation Building is In.
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2013
Personal branding has become a hot topic over the last few years. Seems everyone has one, or wants one, or feels as though they should have one, even if they’re not sure what it is. I’ll be honest, I’ve long been a naysayer when it comes to personal branding. But today I came across this post by Harry Urschel called “The Reality of Personal Branding” and it helped clarify my thinking on the issue. Harry says this about per...
 
  The simple resume writing hack that will transform your job search
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2013
Have you noticed how often product marketers use testimonials? It’s very rare to find a website that doesn’t include rave reviews from clients. And remember those toothpaste ads that used to claim “9 out of 10 dentists recommend this toothpaste?” Marketers do this because they know how effective testimonials can be. After all, if they tell you how great their product or service is, you might ignore them (they would say...

  That’s Really Interesting … Now Take it off Your Resume
by Louise Fletcher - May, 2013
As a resume writer you tend to run up against the same issues on a regular basis. One of the most common challenges is working with a client who has a very diverse background, or who has taken a career detour. This is perfectly possible to address, but every now and then, I work with a client who truly believes that all those experiences are equally valuable in getting their next job. Sometimes, it’s hard for this person t...
