How Will You Make an Impact?

The job search is easily among the most trying times in our lives, especially when there are other people depending on the benefits we reap from work.

When we are teenagers or freshly out of college, the world may appear to be filled with seemingly endless possibilities for our future, and this is totally true; we just need to find those opportunities first. While some of us are lucky enough to have family and friends help us secure a job, many of us know how trying it can be to send out resume after resume, cover letter after cover letter, hoping even for a phone call or interview, just a chance to prove ourselves to potential employers. This situation becomes only more frustrating as time drags on, or as our family pressure us to find work and start making money soon.

So what are we doing wrong?

Before you step foot into an interview, you exist only on paper to recruiters and HR. How are you supposed to show your best self in just a matter of bullet points or short paragraphs?

With the job market constantly changing and employers always looking for new and unique talent, the resume game has been totally flipped on its head, even over the past few years alone. These are the tips you need to know for making the strongest resume possible in 2016.
