Put Your Best Resume Forward

25 April 2013 Written by: Amanda Green No Comment

Good news for those of you with a business degree or are currently going to college for a business degree, you can significantly improve your resume with a certificate in Human Resources Management. Adding another certificate to your resume can not only help you land that dream job, but can also increase your income as well. When you think about your resume, do you cringe? Many people do. Creating that perfect resume is not always easy for everyone, but having complimentary degree’s and certificates, can help you a lot.

There are a lot of students in college who are working on double majors for just that reason. Having a double major increases your experience, and prospects for building a great career, not just finding a “job”. Here are a few other double majors to consider;

  • Business and business
  • Economics and Political Science
  • Economics and Engineering
  • Foreign Language and Political Science

There are actually many different combinations that you can do, and have a great education and really make that resume pop. Employers want to hire someone who has taken the time to really know their field, and have gone that extra mile.

A good resume is not the only thing you need to land that job you want. If you follow the job search basics, you will find one much more quickly. Make sure your Linkedln profile is complete. If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, make one immediately. Many employers will ask for your LinkedIn profile information as part of the application process. This allows them to see your professional network and read some of your recommendations as well. It is a much better way to get a professional reference then to make calls to those people you put down on your application and takes much less time.

Don’t stress out when searching for that perfect job, or trying to build that perfect resume. Ask for help if you need it. There are a great many services that can help you online, and at your alumni center. If you are just going through the schooling process, talk to your counselor and let them help guide you in making the right choices for the career your want. Planning for a career, rather than a “job” is the best way to succeed.

Education and experience are the two major factors that will not only get you hired, but will enable you for promotions and advancements in your chosen career. Having good people skills and learning to be able to judge who will work well together are key ingredients in human resources. Demographics, diversity, skills and qualifications are all taken into consideration during the hiring process and important for a good Business Admin to know. After all, you never know when you may end up having to fill in for one of your HR personnel.

The more knowledge you have the easier your job will be and the more likely that your employers will notice how well you do. Advancement will come to those who are knowledgeable, enjoy their work and are able to lead their team with ease.
