June 13, 2016
Hosted by Marie Zimenoff
Many folks find it challenging to “toot their own horn,” and may even have difficulty knowing what it is that truly distinguishes them in their respective lines of work – otherwise known as their “personal brand.” Knowing how to get to the heart of what differentiates performance and communicate achievements is key in not only building a value-driven, accomplishment-rich resume, but in preparing to interview effectively. In this episode of The Career Confidante, host Marie Zimenoff will welcome resume expert and author of seven career/business books, Jan Melnik. Jan will share some of the best, time-tested practices for individuals to use in gleaning their own key differentiators – or for resume writers to use in extracting these must-have nuggets from their clients.
