Most Common Resume Mistakes that Stand the Test of Time

There is no other way to say it, the job market is competitive. AND, the opportunity to interview usually doesn’t occur unless your resume spiked your reader’s interest.

Social Media Mistakes That Could RUIN Your Career

“Social” media, right there in the name it says “social.”  Aren’t these platforms designed for us to cut loose, be ourselves and have a little fun?
