It's defined by one word "Simplicity". The greatest generation were among the happiest people in history. They lived simple lives, no keeping up with the Joneses, no 4000 square foot home, no BMW in the driveway, no $60k a year for college tuition, and yet, they were always happy. What did they know that we don't know? They had very little,...

A client called me the other day and asked me If I would help her even though she doesn't have an important job. She said that other resume writer services won't bother with her because she can only pay so much. She wanted to know if I could help someone within her status. I told her that status has nothing to do with income. Status, as far as...

Not if you want a lot of interviews. A highly skilled resume writer( should be a MBA, former corporate exec and widely published) understands that a resume needs to accomplish several objectives. It has to WOW the reader by demonstrating the value you can bring to an organization. It has to convey that you are results driven and can contribute to...

Evaluating your work culture will rely on just one word, " Sunday". If that's the worst day of the week for you because you're thinking about Monday, then you work in a toxic environment. If it doesn't matter to you what day of the week it is, then you work at a great place. Resumes Etc. can be reached at:CONTACT

As a general rule, horrible bosses should have a short shelf life in a positive work culture. However, if this particular boss has survived for a long period of time, it tells me two things. Either he/she is operating in a negative culture which supports his/her leadership style, or this person is well connected and protected by the higher ups....

The 3rd quarter economic report is in, and the economy grew at a healthy 2.6%. This means that many recession fears have not materialized. Given this growth, companies are still in a hiring mode. Economists believe that the main catalyst for growth are employers coming out of the pandemic and pursuing growth initiatives. This is a good time to...

I have been in this field for 30 years and I am still amazed at the number of weak resumes I see. Over 90% of our clients create resumes that look like a job description vs a marketing piece. This doesn't surprise me since job seekers don't specialize in resume writing. A resume has to be a marketing piece where ordinary language is converted...
" I grew up in a poor Italian Family in New York and lived my entire life in Westchester and Connecticut. My parents were members of the greatest generation. They lived their faith, loved their country, and they were totally selfless. Their priorities were their children, their family and their friends. They took little for themselves and gave what they could spare to others. I learned and lived these values my entire life and I incorporate them into our business philosophy. Every customer is a member of our extended family, to the point where many have become close friends. We take the time to know their fears, concerns, passions and dreams. We then align all of our skills and resources with their goals and we never give up until they succeed. It may be old school, but it's a value system that has served us and our customers well. "
