  Take Flight With a Business-Lyrical Resume
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - May, 2014
So many resumes are flat – out of tune and uninspiring compositions. If you've read one "goal-oriented sales producer's" resume, you've read a million.

Buying a house requires you create a financial resume to support you through the extensive approval process. This means amassing a volume of personal documents that are assessed by critical eyes. Your history of financial achievem...

by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2013
It is human nature in job search – as in dating – to want to keep your options open. Many job seekers, whether early-career and fairly inexperienced or 15+ years in and heralding a plethora of different functional strengths, feel they will limit their opportunities by narrowing their job search target.
