Laura Smith-Proulx Strikes Me as a Sharp Resume Expert & Blogger

13 August 2009 Written by: Jorge Lazaro Diaz One Comment

I found the Executive Resume Expert blog written by Laura Smith-Proulx. She’s a CCMC, CPRW, and CIC. If you don’t know what those are, Google them, but just know it means she knows how to write a resume.

Her entire blog, which goes back to 2006, is dedicated to resume writing advice. She has some very good advice on a variety of esume related topics. Give it a read if you are in need of writing, rethinking or revisiting your resume.

Hope this helps!

    Resumes only became customary after World War II, as a means for employers to eliminate unqualified candidates among scores of GIs looking for new jobs. Not much has changed. Nowadays, nearly every individual, starting a job search, begins by developing a resume, but decision makers only spend and average of ten seconds scanning them. A resume cannot do the heavy lifting in a job search. Its purpose is strictly to function, in conjunction with a follow-up call, as a marketing tool to initiate a conversation with the decision maker. Your goal should be to present your background and accomplishments in a visually appealing, reverse chronological order, with dates, succinctly and honestly. Stay away from functional resumes, extensive formatting and leaving dates off to hide age.
