Financial Consulting: 4 Tips to Keep a Pulse on Business Trends

It’s no secret that successful financial consulting requires staying on top of business and economic trends. You must be well-versed in factors affecting the business climate, such as compliance regulations, hiring trends and security risks.

Resumania™: Rumpelstiltskin Impersonators Need Not Apply

Poets and novelists often use complex metaphors to further a reader’s understanding or to highlight important ideas, but crafting a cover letter or resume is not an exercise in creative writing.

Resumania™: Keep Sweating the Small Stuff

One incorrectly used term. One transposed letter. One misplaced punctuation mark. That’s all it could take to cause an employer to question your professionalism and attention to detail. And that’s why it’s so critical to carefully review your resume and cover letter.  

Relying on spell-check alone is problematic because the program won’t necessarily flag every type of error. Proofread on screen and on paper, and ask a friend or family member for feedback. Fresh eyes can catch tricky mistakes you overlooked.

How to Avoid Common Job Interview Mistakes

Your resume and cover letter are in tip-top shape. You feel strongly qualified for the positions you apply to. You don’t have trouble landing an interview. But you can’t seem to get a job offer.

“What am I doing wrong?” you ask yourself. There’s likely a disconnect between how you think you come off in an interview and how potential employers are seeing you. Or perhaps you’re having a crisis of confidence. With a little improvement to your interviewing skills, you can show potential employers the real you and improve your chances of landing that dream job.
