Showcase Your Talents
A few years back, I’d written an article on how to use a resume to showcase your talents. Given the current situation in the US job market, I thought it might be relevant to update this resource and put it out there again. This article reviews the top types of resumes, outlines the advantages and disadvantages to each type, and gives general tips on how to use them to make a compelling case for your talents.
Another article is Think Weird and Prosper, which I’m reviving as a resource for those progressive thinkers who, like nails that stick up from the wood, get pounded down when they try to act on innovative ideas. This is a companion piece to the other article, and provides some ideas for alternative careers during hard economic times. While everyone else is concentrating on the same old, same old, you can be promoting yourself in a whole new way, and during hard times, your employer or clients are more willing to listen to new ideas.
