She warns, “This article contains some “tough talk” and will probably offend some readers.” Since her article did not offend me and in fact rather inspired me, I’m posting it here with Mary Elizabeth’s blessing! Remember as you read this article, as I pointed out in my article What Do Recruiters Want in a Resume?

Perhaps what drives job seekers crazy more than anything else is that if they ask 7 people to review their resume, they will get 7 different opinions about what is working and not working about the document. Read this article to get the truth from the people who matter!
LinkedIn presents job seekers with a dilemma: The site requires an “up-to-date current position (with a description)” for a 100% complete profile; and according to LinkedIn, 100% complete profiles are 40 times more likely to be viewed. But if you are a job seeker, you might not have a current position other than “job seeker.” Should you create a “filler” job description to be 100% complete? Or should you hope that 95%-or-so complete is enough?
When you are job seeking, or running a business, or possibly both, you might put a lot of pressure on yourself to keep working; take the next action step; schedule your life better; stop procrastinating; or some combination of all these things. But no matter how much we might like to think we can keep going and keep doing, sometimes we just need a break.
