Love Letter and Resume
It’s February, and if one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to update your resume, you need to do it now. But it’s Valentine’s Day, so you also need to write a love letter to your special other. I hate choosing, so let’s do both! In fact, there are some similarities. Just as your love letter should use elegant and carefully chosen words to express your feelings, your resume should use powerful and carefully chosen words to express the impact you can have on a company. And let’s be honest; usually if you’re happier at home you’re happier at work, and vice versa, so let’s look at some examples of how to improve both your love life and your resume:
