Planning For 2016

The ball will soon be dropping in Times Square. Champagne is chilling, and we’ll be chanting along with the countdown for the New Year . . . 5,4,3,2,1, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! After a quick toast and a New Year’s kiss, someone asks you, “So, any New Year’s Resolutions? Any big changes for you? What are you planning for 2016?”

Hopefully, you’ve asked yourself these same questions before year end festivities. If you want to hit the ground running in 2016, the time to start planning for that is now. One of the best ways to prepare for where you are going is to look back at where you’ve been. Over the next several weeks, successful consultants should be taking a hard look at this past year to assess their goals, setbacks, career milestones, profitability, and overall job satisfaction.

Writing A Killer Resume

TrainingPros is grateful to consultant Paula Tarnapol Whitacre, the principal for Full Circle Communications, for her contribution to this important topic – getting noticed with a killer resume. The following excerpt is being provided with her permission and can be found in her popular Ease in Writing newsletter.

“[A few years ago, I wrote an article about resumes.] Now, with unemployment officially below 6 percent and with hiring supposedly on the increase, I decided to revisit the topic to see how resumes have changed in the past few years.

Even if you are not actively job-seeking, you probably need a resume "on hand." For example, I am sometimes asked for one to include in a proposal or for a current client to pass on to someone else within his or her organization. I spoke with two experts. Laura Hosid, career coach at Vinik EPS, specializes in entry-level and younger job-seekers, while most of resume writer/career coach Bettie Biehn's clients at Career Change Central, LLC have more experience or are changing careers.
