Job Search: What have you done lately?

Courtesy of Randy Block, Career Transition Coach & Consultant

Randy coaches clients in their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. He recently provided this advice regarding resume length and what’s important to recruiters and employers:

  1. Anyone could be successful in the 90’s. Enough time has passed now since the dotcom bust. We are now in a completely different economy.
  2. The highly desired accomplishments are those made by job seekers since 2001.
  3. Most companies want to know how a candidate can help them survive the next 6 months from a revenue and productivity standpoint (it is mostly tactical now).
  4. Strategic thinkers (defining products and services in 2010 and beyond) are mostly not in vogue at the moment.

For what it’s worth!
