There are a million resume-writing websites on the internet with a million great tips.
So here are a few of my own from my own experience.
1. Keep your resume concise, but don’t leave out important details for the job to which you are applying. If it’s really important for your interviewer to know something about you, it’s better to put it in the resume than to leave it out.
2. Tailor you resume for the job you are applying to. These days, we may find ourselves applying to several completely different jobs. It’s a great idea to have a separate version of your resume for these different jobs. Put the information in your resume that is related to the job you are applying to, and leave the extra stuff out. Put in a note that says: “Further background information and employment history available on request.” This lets your interviewer know that there may be more information, but that they can ask if it’s important to them. It will give you something extra to talk about in the interview, which is not a bad thing at all.
3. Make good eye contact, give a good handshake, speak clearly and not too fast, and be yourself, but still put your best foot forward.

There was a general impression among customers that I knew everything about my products (or that I should have known every detail about my products). Read more »

This is a repost of an old article I found several years ago.
The original website I got it from does not appear to be up anymore.
But here is the article:
They Are On Your Side
Now that the weather has turned colder and Scorpio rules the night sky, many people’s thoughts turn to various winter gift giving Gift-Giving-Guide-for-Executives holidays (Yule, Christmas, Kwanzaa or Hanukkah). This means many of you will throng to retail stores like flies to rotten meat. And get very, very stressed when dealing with the store workers. They will seem like idiots. They will seem like they are out to get you. Read more »
