Targeted resumes (customized resumes) get interviews and get jobs. Would you use the same resume to apply for both a teaching position and an office job? You’d better not if you want a decent shot at getting an interview. A customized resume is one that is tailored to a specific job. You’d start with your resume template and strategically customize it to feature the skills and accomplishments that best match the typical job description for the job you want.

And when most college students are already graduating with crippling debt, the last thing you want to do is waste time or money. And how many people do you know who have changed or are considering changing careers? Quite a few, I’m sure. For one reason...

Although the so-called ‘workplace can’t’ comes in different forms, there are certain characteristics they share.

Travelling is like getting a tattoo or piercing; once you have your first taste of culture, excitement, and utter freedom, you spend your time fighting back your wanderlust. The main issue stopping you from jumping on that plane? Money. But what if you could get paid to travel?

Does Talent Matter More Than Experience When Applying for a Job
   If you've ever looked through job listings, you've probably seen open positions you thought would be a perfect fit for your talents. However, when you've looked at the application requirements, you've noticed employers preferred someone with many years of experience. Obviously, managers look for experienced candidates because they think experience equals both strong performance and loyalty. However, when managers focus just on experience, they often miss out on really talented candidates—like you—who might have done a better job. If you're someone who wants to start a business degree program to earn a bachelor's degree in organizational management (BSOL), then...
