How can I include a cover letter when applying directly via the employers website? I have cone across some that allow for it and others that don't. If they don't how do I get a cover letter to the correct person?
I am at a Director/ VP level. I had my resume done by a company and they said that I should leave off my employer from 1985 to 1997 because it would indicate my age. It is a very large company where I was doing unrelated work- but the skills could be used in the future. What do you think?
I recently applied for a position with a non-profit group and had a contact from the group that I know send my resume along as well. I have been told the recruitment process is slow, but instead of waiting on my hands, I would like to do everything I can to give myself a good chance at an interview. Beyond my strongest contact, I am acquainted with another individual there who I have not spoken with regarding the opportunity.
Are there any other steps that I can take to help position myself as a strong candidate, and if so, what would you recommend?
If you're not getting any bites, then you want to have someone look at your resume. If you have a copy handy, paste the first quarter of the page here and I'll take a look. Just that much information will tell me a lot and I'll try to help.
I just wanted to thank you for being on GMA today. I am a 24 year old male living in a small city with very limited job options. Most of the jobs here are hotels, food, and the like as this is a tourest town. I started off my career working at Wal-Mart for 2 years. I then went to USAMobility for a year and half until I was laid off due to oursourcing. I then went to work for a small service provider as Tech Support. The company then was bought out and shortly after the buy out I was promoted to do IT work. I did IT work for roughly 6 months before the company reorganized and did mass layoff. I was hired back 3 weeks later into Tech Support (the job I had before doing IT) However, due to a lot of the changes within the company and the hours I was requested to work, I was unable to keep the job and was fired due to attendence issues and now I am once again unemployed. I have been searching for jobs and have applied for at least 45 jobs but have yet to find anything as options are limited in my city and most of the jobs only pay $9 or $10 an hour. I am wondering if you could give me some advise as to what I can do at this point? I was fired making $15 an hour and with me having no college or any type of training, I was making decent money for this area. I am open to almost any type of jobs and also am willing to travel as well or even relocate. Can you please point me in the right direction?
Thanks so much in advance!MichaelPensacola, FL
I am an older female worker, not yet ready to retire. The company I had worked for for 5 1/2 yrs. terminated me last March. I have sent out hundreds of resumes and had several interviews, still no luck. I am attaching my resume and I hope you can give me some hints on how to get employers to take me seriously. I am wanting to scale back my responsibility level and I've been applying for non-supervisory and non-management type jobs.
I have scaled my resume back so that it does not include all of my work experience. I felt like my full resume was way too intimidating. What else should I do.

At what point should I reorganize my resume to put experience before education? I just graduated two years ago and the two jobs I have had since then have not been very related to my degree, which is in environmental science and natural resources. I want to get back to that field.
At the same time, I have went back to school with online courses in organization leadership. How do I convince employers to hire a full time student for a full-time position? I am handling my current position really well, without conflicts, and I feel confident in my ability to do that with any job. Tips?
Hi Tory My story is that I am 40 did not go to college but fell into property management at age 20. I was making 18.00 and hour plus bonuses and excellent bene's when my Company sold and brought in their own employee's. I still have a positive attitude most of the time but am finding that I may end up with a job that pays half of what I was making. I am starting to let little thoughts after being off two and a half months, sneak into my head like you should have went to school and your getting to old blah blah...... should I just take the job at the school district for 10.00 or keep searching?
If there is a position we are interested in, but are missing one qualification needed for the position, do you think a company will hire you if you take an adult education course on that particular subject matter?
