Write a Resume That Actually Gets Noticed by Recruiters | E83 Jenny Foss The Struggle is Real with Justin Peters

I’m talking to my friend Jenny Foss who is a Job Search Strategist who has been in the game for quite a while helping people navigate job searches, advance their careers, and make career pivots.   We start with how to bridge the gap between the job you have and the job you want. Jenny shares the secrets of what makes a great resume and I’ll give you a spoiler, it is not Times New Roman, on 1-inch margins, on one-page. She has way more useful advice than that.   At the end of our conversation, Jenny breaks down a step-by-step process to ask someone and conduct a successful informational interview.    I’ve always hated writing cover letters, but Jenny walked me through a simple framework for writing a cover letter so they don’t sound generic and actually showcase your value as a candidate.   I hope you enjoy my conversation with the career consultant and newly published author of Do This, Not That Career….Jenny Foss.   Key Takeaways: How to job craft your current role How to bridge the gap between the job you have and the job you want What makes a great resume How to write a compelling cover letter How to make sure your resume makes it through resume scanning software Use information interviews to land a job with your dream company How to share your accomplishments without coming across as bragging Are pay transparency laws working?   Mentions: Using Job Crafting to Increase Your Career Satisfaction l E21 Dr. Benjamin Ritter – http://www.tsirpodcast.com/21   More of Jenny: Do This, Not That: Career: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Do-This-Not-That-Career/Jenny-Foss/Do-This-Not-That/9781507219669 LinkedIn Newsletter: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-ask-make-most-informational-interview-jenny-foss/?trackingId=ySRyz0xfS9acXbdDF6XVEQ%3D%3D Website: http://www.jobjenny.com   More of The Struggle is Real: Find show notes and more at https://www.tsirpodcast.com/ Follow us on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/tsirpod/
