Sitting at home and living a bit like we’re back in the 1800′s, I was thinking how New York is going to have to reinvent itself after everything is back up and running. Battery Park will need to be better protected, the subways have to be strengthened and any shoreline areas need to prepare for a weather system that is changed forever.
Round Robin Resume Revising: It Works!
After helping two friends revise their resume recently, I realized how much I’ve learned through osmosis of managing PRSA Jobcenter for five years. I’ve had the benefit of meeting many insightful recruiters and asking them advice on behalf of our job seekers.
While there’s no “perfect formula” for revising a resume, here’s some advice and strategies I’ve obtained with a little help from my friends.
Recently I had the pleasure of managing PRSA’s Jobcenter redesign – with the help and guidance of some wonderful colleagues. We were able to redo the navigation and compile information from all PRSA and PRSSA resources including advice based on PR Tactics articles, Forum blogs, comPRehension entries, HR consultants and resume guidance from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. What was the result? We now have an information-rich career center to set job seekers on a successful path for all career levels. If you’re new to public relations, the entry level and tools and tactics pages can provide a much needed edge in this ever-changing economy.

My experience as the manager of the PRSA Jobcenter has given me a 360 degree view of what can help you land that job. Although I’m not a human resources expert, I have seen recent success stories and tactics that can help job seekers compete more effectively.
A friend recently asked me if she should contact a potential employer regarding her recent interview. This was her third interview with the same company. I found myself asking her to show them what she’s bringing to the table other than just her resume and cover letter. This conversation illustrates the dilemma that many job seekers encounter after an interview. Consider utilizing these suggestions for following up regarding the status of an interview (think ARTS):
