Project Manager Resume:
It is no longer a secret – the days of “forever” at one company are gone. Between mass layoffs, slowed hiring from economic uncertainty, and the growth of the gig economy, the premise of Daniel Pink’s “Free Agent Nation” is a reality today.
The result? Job security is no longer in the hands of the company you work for, but up to you – the value you can bring to a company, the network you’ve built, and your skills in managing your career.
That’s where the Career Confidante comes in. After launching my career practice in 2008 right before the recession, I saw so many professionals struggling after being laid off from companies they thought they’d work for forever. For some, their industry had changed when they weren’t looking; many had not searched for a job – ever.
Each week, the Career Confidante shares resources to help you build skills you need to stay current and be your own job security. Listen in for tips to improve your resume; build and maintain a strong network; use social media to manage your career; develop critical skills like leadership, innovation, and communication; negotiate your salary; prepare for an interview; earn a promotion; and much more!
