Resumes are personal advertisements.
People need to know how to present themselves.

It never ceases to amaze me that when candidates prepare a resume duties and responsibilities take the lead over accomplishments.  recently received a resume from a candidate and under each of his positions he listed 4 to 5 accomplishment bullet points. He did a great job relating how well he did in his various positions and when I asked him why he prepared his resume with accomplishments he told me that he felt it was important for people to know how well he did his job and not necessarily what he did.

A simple saying to remember when preparing your resume
is: " Duties and responsibilities tell what you do while accomplishments tell how well you do."

Mentoring your Staff Members You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want. Zig Ziglar His quote seems simple enough. When you analyze it, I am sure you will understand that it can be applied to just about every segment of every industry and to every level of management. As a supervisor you can improve the productivity in your department simply by understanding the needs of the people you supervise and by helping them satisfy those needs. This can be done through simple conversations, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, and mentoring them to improve. Ziglar also said when you do more than what you are paid for, you will soon be paid more for what you do. This certainly can apply to every person in the work force. Over the past 31 years as a recruiter I have seen that the ones who progress upwards in their careers are the ones who mentor and help others attain their goals and objectives.
