Here are some tips from Lauren Milligan to help you start the new year with a new career.
Lauren Milligan, Career Advancement Coach with ResuMAYDAY, loves to solve run-of-the-mill problems with counter-intuitive, disruptive solutions. Earlier this year she was 'booed' while on stage, speaking at a state conference of vocational counselors. The topic was how vocational counselors should advise their clients to explain job gaps. While she had never been booed before, she remained steadfast and unflappable. And then she doubled-down on her advice, saying the same to an even larger group of vocational counselors at their national conference in Pittsburgh. Was her advice counter-intuitive? Whether you need a resume from scratch, need help preparing for a stressful interview or are just unsure how to handle tough job search situations, having Lauren on your side is like having Jake Arietta pitch in a high school game. Lauren Milligan is a renowned expert resume writer and career coach with ResuMAYDAY. Her audio book, Conversations with a Career Coach is available at http://resumayday.com and Ms. Milligan is available for media interviews.

"The biggest flaw for a resume is when it fails to showcase a person's accomplishments, contributions and results, and instead spouts a job description of each position he's held," says Lauren Milligan, founder of ResuMayDay, a resume-writing and career-coaching firm based near Chicago.


Resume Mistakes | Century Associates

"The biggest flaw for a resume is when it fails to showcase a person's accomplishments, contributions and results, and instead spouts a job description of each position he's held," says Lauren Milligan, founder of ResuMayDay, a resume-writing and career-coaching firm based near Chicago.
"People get bogged down in the day-to-day details of their jobs, but when it comes to your resume, you've got to get out of the clutter and ask yourself, 'What does this work mean?'" Milligan says. If a manager is hiring for an administrative assistant, he already knows what an admin does and doesn't want to see a resume that says an applicant can type and answer a phone. "You have to go beyond that to point out your specific strengths," Milligan says. Start by having big-picture conversations about what you do and how it serves the organization as a whole. "If you're in a support position, consider how successful the person you support is and how you help her do her job better," Milligan says. "There's a huge difference between a resume and the Great American Novel," says Milligan. "The resumes I'm most proud of summed up a 25-year career in a single page." She urges job seekers to remember that resumes are typically skimmed for a mere six to eight seconds. "Make sure you're identifying the companies you worked for, how long you were there and if you earned a promotion," she says. "Those are things that people look for immediately. Also, if your job title is long and vague, tighten it up so that people immediately understand what you've done. For example, "Marketing Manager" is much more accessible than "Global Identity Architect." Given the time you have to catch a recruiter's eye, a focused, accomplishment-driven resume is the way to go. "If you are loaded up on peripheral stuff, it's too hard for a hiring manager to find your story," Milligan says. 3. Get Real What if you come up blank when trying to think about how you've helped build the big picture for your employer? "A couple of times I've talked to people who insisted they just did their jobs and there's nothing special about them that jumps out," Milligan says. She's asked them outright if they're in the right position. "It's a difficult question to ask, but these people may be chasing the wrong job," she says. She counsels clients that if they cannot speak about what they've done in terms of enhancing the position or the company, "You may be just punching a clock -- and you and your employer deserve more."
