Tailor Your Versions

Tailor Your Versions

Recruiters favour a résumé tailored for the specific job you’re seeking. They are put off by generic documents that look like they’ve been sent out time and again.

Despite this fact, most candidates don’t bother to customize their résumés. That’s quite shocking in light of the fact that most job seekers typically apply for upward of 100 to 200 jobs.

When it comes to length, one size does not fit all.

Share Your Skills

It’s important that your résumé presents a full picture of your skills and shows how they align with the requirements of the job you’re seeking.

Soft skills are key in the workplace of the future and provide a crucial advantage, even in technical jobs. The areas most frequently noted and the proportion of résumés mentioning them: communications (14%), customer service (9%), project management (7%), time management (6%), and leadership (5%).

A Well-Rounded Profile

Today’s world is undergoing rapid change in technology, the environment, management structures, and the very shape of the workplace. Employers are looking for people who have a creative side and a life outside of work.

Reading, blogging, traveling, music, and sports are the most common hobbies listed. But don’t just list the topic—show how your hobby is relevant to your candidacy. For example, if you’re applying for a job in finance, you might put down some of the relevant books you’re reading.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
