New Year Resolutions for some can be daunting but for me I try to limit it to three things to achieve. Whether these achievements are in my professional life or personal, at the end of the day they impact on both anyway.
• My first this year is to learn something new as part of my professional development, number one on my list every year
• My second is to build on my business and continue to offer a quality service to my clients
• My third is to celebrate a milestone in my life with all my friends and family
So, what does 2014 mean for you? Maybe you have decided to change careers and it might have been some time since you re-visited your resume. Is it still relevant? A resume is an important tool for a prospective employer to consider in the first instance, to evaluate if you are a suitable candidate for the job. Often it does not include the relevant information they require. I have had experience of helping people build their resumes and it becomes clear, that in many cases, the person does not realise the skills they have until they talk it over with me.
The next stage, applying for the position & answering the selection criteria – “Oh no!” you say, where do I start? You have not done this for a while and although you feel sure, from the job description, that you are capable of doing the job, how do you get it across in writing to adequately respond to the selection criteria? This is where I can assist again. I don’t write the responses for you – after all, your prospective employer wants to be sure you wrote the answers. However, I can discuss it with you and provide guidance on what the prospective employer is looking for in your skills and experience, for you to be a good candidate for interview.
So whatever this year means for you (whether it be a new career or building on a current one) if you are seeking administrative assistance, please think of me, review my skills and experience then let me help you virtually in your goals and aspirations.
