Career Miracle ENERGY?

resume energy logo

For about year now Resume Energy has been attending job fairs throughout the Philadelphia area, providing free resume critiques. Often when we arrive at the job fairs, people are lined up in droves, waiting to have their resumes looked at.

But get this. One of the companies that host the job fairs was recently purchased by an even larger company, and the new company would rather POST “how to videos” for the unemployed, on their website, rather than sponsoring more job fairs. That decision just didn’t resonate with me.

When I heard that I used Resume Energy’s twitter account for the first time, and I tweeted; “Even through this, something good will happen”. I was so disappointed. Job fairs are intended to be a “grass root” opportunity for the unemployed, not only do they bring hope to the people, but employers, to the communities. At the last job fair we attended, a company representative was standing at the job fair, handing out the company’s website information, on a card, for the job seekers to get this “upload” their resumes. They were not even taking them. What’s going on out there? Is this also happening to you? “The unemployed are becoming more and more isolated”, they really need someone to talk to.

So as I tweeted, something good did come out of that, I decided to use the air waves, and this remarkable technology, at blog talk radio, to actually critique resumes, and share my job search strategies or “career miracles” that I lovingly call them. These “career miracles” are both spiritual and practical. The goal of finding heart centered employment is the apex of my career coaching. I believe that we are all spiritual beings living in a physical universe, and we must live from love and open up our hearts. Many of us live too much in our heads. We need to get our heads and get our hearts and heads to work together. You can always check my “career miracles” against your own inner thoughts and feelings. If they don’t resonate with you, don’t use them. These “career miracles” have been used over and over again to help job seekers like you find heart centered employment.

Today’s job market is a living nightmare for some. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average time to find a job is now 33.6 weeks – that’s more than 8 MONTHS. Then add the advances in technology, job hunting has changed. In only 10-15 seconds, I said seconds, a resume must show Human resources, what they want to see and read.

Resumes today must be energized! Most companies, as you are aware, have a web page and an applicant tracking system (ATS) like Bullhorn to parse resumes. Recruiters are getting more and more creative with their sourcing techniques. In 2013, it is imperative to have an account on at least one of these networks (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn) to raise your resume’s energy level.

Here’s what actually happened to me. I needed a career miracle. I woke up on Friday morning with a very lucrative contract that supplemented my income, and allowed me to have this “wonderful life”, and was told that evening, it was gone, done.
For those of you who know me personally, I am successful. I am accomplished. I don’t fail. (PLEASE this couldn’t be happening to me. I jumped in my bed, pulled up the blankets over my head, and had a pity party.

During that time of self pity, a little reflection and plenty of ice-cream and take out, I tapped into a power greater then my problem, and experienced my first “career miracle”. I first accepted my situation as one that I could not solve alone, and pleaded with God to help me. I did prayer rounds, created affirmations for employment, lit candles and wrote in my journal, and tapped into an arsenal of activities that I knew could help me.

I needed a partner, someone who could ease my pain and relieve my fear. I’ll never forget hearing those words whispered into my ear “you write a damn good resume”. Wow, that was true, almost 25 years ago I was one of the best resume writers and career coaches in South Jersey, and I just closed the door to that gift, believing that I needed more education, more degrees, and newer opportunities.
I had no idea how those words, and that time tapping into my spirit, would create this vision that is now propelling me forward. A vision filled with “career miracles” that I teach and use in the lives of my clients.

Those “career miracles” brought forth that part of me that was lying dormant, my courageous self; and my confident self. I want to teach them to you, so that you can land where you are hungry to go, finding your heart centered employment.

This is my coaching to you for today. The first career miracle is very simple. You must develop a spiritual partnership. You and I are both here to live our highest expression. We are both here to be our beautiful, empowered, sacred, without apology, without judgment or without explanation self. We must have inner peace to thrive. I am not telling you what to do; I am just telling you that you must have a regular spiritual practice.

I’ve also learned this and I must share this with you. Fear is all the undigested stuff from our past, and ALL JOBS ARE TEMPORARY. This will be my tweet after this show. ALL JOBS ARE TEMPORARY.
It is all your losses, your beliefs that you are not good enough, that you are not fast enough, that you are not this, nor that, that is fear! Fear tells you that you are incompetent.
Get this, if there is fear, doubt, worry, or resistance, you are trying to do or handle this job search or job loss situation alone, and you have lost your connection.

Being laid off, losing your job is a reset button. That allows you an opportunity to start fresh, to review, and to change. It is also an opportunity for you to surrender your life over to God, spirit, infinite love, divine power; divine love, Jehovah, Jesus, whatever you call it. Because when we are connected, we want for nothing. That’s another tweet!

Our “career miracle” is to bring light to fear and having a spiritual practice or partnership will do this. Having a spiritual practice teaches us how to embrace our fear, and to integrate our fear. I realized that it is okay to be afraid, we are all human. But being afraid and allowing it to control you or me is two separate entities. This is my first “career miracle”.
Let’s help you create your “career miracle”.

My Best Regards!

Resume critique tips ENERGY?

artResume

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am overjoyed to write this post. I was working with a new client this week and I told him to go to my blog and review these tips, and guess what? They were not posted. So here they are Resume critique tips.

A resume must . . .
Show an employer that (you), the job seeker is worth much more to them (value) than they cost (salary and benefits)! A great resume should compel human resources to pick up the phone and call the (you) job seeker. Its content must be relevant to the reader. It should also provide quick insight into the (your) personality and drive to succeed. It must create an unsolicited demand for your skills. Here are Resume Energy’s Resume critique tips for 2013.

TIP # 1
The header is always the reader’s first impression. Similar to having on polished shoes, it should be in 18-20 fonts. Single Spaced!

TIP # 2
Never ever should (you) job seeker use a cheesy email address? You should use a professional sounding email address. If the resume still has this telephone format (856) 571-1507, you have just dated your resume style to 1989. Use the modern yet digital, phone-number format: 856.571.1507. Don’t forget you should also include your social media address. Just as employers use multiple avenues to push out job postings, (you) the job seeker need to use all the channels available to put yourself in front of recruiters. Using Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn as a means to give updates on your career or connect you with other professionals gives your résumé legs and can make you more memorable as a candidate.

TIP # 3
(You) Job seeker’s should avoid starting their resume with an Objective! Gone are the days of an “objective” statement. Instead, use a “Professional Summary” to list the qualities they can offer immediately to the prospective employer.

TIP # 4
Another great way to get a resume noticed is to use job titles or a job title bar. A title bar is a good choice because it is a list of three of their career experiences. They can also list their top three skills in a title bar, across the top of their resume.

TIP # 5
Learn from commercials: Be brief. A resume is a lot like a television commercial, and the job seeker is the product. They’ve got seconds to identify a problem they can solve; show your greatest attributes and to take action. No more than 10-12 years of work history should be included on a resume. Leave off job experiences that show more than those dates. Remind them that a resume is a living document that should be updated every two years!

TIP # 6
(You) job seekers must tailor your resume for each prospective employer. The same point applies to their cover letters. That is why they must have career focus, and use “key words” from the job lead.

TIP # 7
“Pobody’s Nerfect”! Having a poor design and layout, with careless inaccuracies is a no-no! A resume must be free from grammatical and typographical errors. Get someone to review and edit the resume before the job seeker applies for a job.

TIP # 8
Write the resume from your voice. You are not like everyone else. Find the precise words that describe what makes you unique and valuable.

TIP # 9
“References Available upon Request” This was often used as a way to end a resume, but it’s completely unnecessary. Of course you have references! Otherwise, they have no business applying for a job! The age-old “references available upon request” has become archaic. They should have solid references lined up from the get-go, so when the hiring manager asks for them, they are ready to share them.

TIP # 10
Yes, you need a cover letter, even when you are emailing a resume, posting it to a job board, or sending it electronically. A cover letter is the best place to introduce yourself, identify your goals, and briefly describe why you are a good fit for the position. A well-written cover letter is a sales tool that will ensure that the resume will be read.

For everyone who is looking for a job right now, may God be with you. You are in my prayers. I pray that you find that job as soon as possible, and that you are able to live a happy and fruitful life.

My Best Regards!

Vision Board ENERGY?

vison board 2013

What I am sharing with you is nothing new. I cannot take credit, nor do I want to take credit for creating such a life transforming activity. All I can say is that each year, when the new year begins, you can always find me sitting, cutting, and gluing pictures, words, and photos on a brand new piece of oak tag. I don’t know if it is the quiet and reflective time that I enjoy most, or if it is just feeling like a “little girl” again, sitting at my mother’s dining room table, creating an art project. But I always feel so wonderful after my vision board is done.

This year for 2013 I added a few lit candles and poured a glass or two, of my favorite wine, while preparing my vision board. Let’s say, I am so happy to have survived such a year. Looking back on 2012 I experienced the sudden loss of my young brother in law, “Chuck” and my beloved pet, “Kobe”. What a pill to swallow!

But as always, I believe that even though this something good will happen, so as I am always excited about the month of January, and the New Year, I eagerly set down to create my vision board 2013.
This year I decided that one board wasn’t enough, so I have and are creating two boards, one personally created for “me” and the other one for my business; Resume Energy and the Clarity in Communication Project. Here is some more info on the power of a vision board.

Vision boards have become a powerful part of my life. I have been using them for more than 25 years. You just take any kind of paper, I love buying “oak tag” or poster board, grab some old magazines, and get started. I believe that my vision board is a visual representation of my prayers for the year. As I sit there cutting, and pasting, I am putting my heart’s desires down, without any restraints; just words and pictures that mean something to me.
You can use travel magazines and/or books. The idea is that you create a board that has your deepest desires, things that you just love, things that inspire you, things that motivate you, and places that you want to go and be. But please don’t worry about how you are going to do them, have them, or achieve them.

I believe that the world instantly starts to reorganize once I glue those pictures on that board, because once there down, you will notice the opportunity to have the things that are appearing on your vision board.

Sometimes it is so amazing and just startling. The best example I recently had was when I saw, really saw, the picture in the center of my 2013 vision board that I started working on the first week of January 2013. If you look closely at my vision board, you will see a picture of a heart and a microphone. I love using the expression, “speak from your heart” and “follow your heart”. I had no idea when I cut that picture out; that it would mean much more than that. To all my followers, I am starting a heart centered radio talk show to help job seekers. Which I did exactly two days after cutting that picture out. If you look carefully at my vision board, you will see the picture I am talking about.

I also put words on my board to lay the foundation of what I want to build in my life. On my 2013 vision board, I used the months of the year to give me a monthly focus on the things I do and experience each month. You have two weeks to select books, magazines, drawings, or whatever resonates with you and create a new vision board. Then I want you to put it somewhere that you can see frequently. You don’t have to share it with me, but you can if you are lead to. I am a big fan of keeping secret your desires. I think it is important to protect the seeds of your heart desires until they have taken root, grown, and translated from the non physical to the physical and are viable That’s probably where that old saying comes from, watch who you tell your “business” too. So I protect my dreams and desires from anyone who may something that is not helpful to say. It is like planting a seed. You place it in the safety of the dirt, you water it, and tend to it, and once it grows, you place it for everyone to see. If you dug it up and didn’t water it, it would not have grown. So keep your secrets and look at it every day. Don’t have any expectations. I look forward to hearing about you finishing your board!

For everyone who is looking for a job right now, may God be with you. You are in my prayers. I pray that you find that job as soon as possible, and that you are able to live a happy and fruitful life. As always, if you want to talk with me personally about this topic, email me at resumeenergy@yahoo.com, as my personal mission remains, to help you establish YOUR career focus.

My Best Regards!

2013 New Year’s Resolution Energy?

stick_figure_out_of_monitor_800_clr1

New Year! New plan! New vision! New goal! New Resolution! New hope! New dream! New motivation! New opportunities! New deals! New chance! New habits! New thinking! New commitment! New way! New challenge! New beginning! New path! New direction! New words! New mindset! New view! New Thoughts! New direction! New friends! New colleagues! New attitude! New start! New life! New you! New Career focus!

What better time it is to make some Job Seeking resolutions for 2013. I know you may want to lose weight, reconnect with some old friends, and have some quality me time, but if you were unemployed in 2012, the clock has struck and it’s time for some New Year’s Job Seeking Resolutions.

Since most of us reading my blog are job seekers, the number one resolution for the year 2013 is to go out there and land that dream job. Here are a few resolutions you should be making in order to meet that goal.

Goal/Resolution #1: Know What You Want To Do
You must ask yourself what you really want out of your career. Spend some time focused on exactly what you want to get out of your job search. I love January, not only because it is my birthday month, but because it is also a great chance to think about whether you should stay on your current path or switch industries. Whatever you decide, make sure you’re truly dedicated and passionate about your goal and you will be one step closer to achieving it.

Goal/Resolution #2: Strengthen your networking skills and network
As we have discovered, networking is a great way to discover hidden job opportunities and to set you apart from the pack. It’s important to resolve to make 2013 the year you really focus on building up your circle. Please plan to network in person and through social media and make sure to remember to follow-up with your contacts in order to keep them fresh. This way, when a great opportunity opens up, you’re smiling face is the first they imagine.

Goal/Resolution #3: Work on that elevator pitch
This pitch must be perfect. I practice my elevator pitch all the time. Each time I complete a resume, and my client is so excited, I tweak my elevator pitch. My elevator pitch is a live, working, pitch.

Your elevator pitch is the concise way you introduce yourself to new contacts. Make sure you have all the vital information about yourself, but don’t ramble on. You want to make an impression quickly so the conversation can move on from the introductions. This will also be helpful in the interview process, whether it’s in person or through online video, when the interviewer asks you to tell them a little bit about yourself.

Goal/Resolution #4: Get Visual
Visual media is everywhere you look now, from your college friends posting Facebook pictures to your grandma merrily pinning away on Pinterest. Everyone is obsessed with visual media these days, and the job search isn’t much different. If you can find a way to make an impression visually, you’ll be more likely to grab the attention of hiring managers. If you need to update that professional profile, do it now!

Goal/Resolution #5: Just do it, have a Social Media Plan
Social media is an ever-increasing part of daily life. From keeping in contact with friends to networking with potential contacts, social media is an important tool to stay in touch. Make sure you’re not just using social media on a whim when it comes to your job hunt.
Goal/Resolution #6: Brand Yourself

We’ve talked about this in earlier posts. It is so important these days to establish a personal brand for yourself as a candidate in order to quickly and efficiently tell employers what you’re all about. Consider it your elevator pitch for when you don’t have the opportunity to speak to a potential contact in person. You might want to consider a personal website, video resume, or an online work portfolio where you show off your skills. At the least you should make sure your personal brand is consistent across all your social media profiles and anywhere else you can be found on the Internet. Ask me for some other easier ways to brand your resume file.

Goal/Resolution #7: Focus on Time Management
This is where many job seekers lose their momentum. You don’t have time to apply to every job opening, which is good because not every job is right for you. Instead, focus on managing your time by only applying for the jobs you’d really and truly love to have. Make sure both the position itself and the company culture are a good fit. On the same hand, even though online job searching is efficient, you have to get out and offline.

Goal/Resolution #8: Volunteer Your Time
My favorite resolution of them all! If you know me, you know that I love to use stories from my life as examples instead of giving advice. Well almost 22 years ago, I had a new client, who got up every day, dressed, and volunteered her services at the training program that I directed in Camden, New Jersey. I would love to mention her name, because she was so proud of her determination. She just wouldn’t stay home. In the early 80’s, Camden, New Jersey had one of the highest unemployment rates in the world. Each day, she would get up and get dressed, as if she had a job.

Well volunteering paid off; she followed up on several job leads that she only heard about because she was volunteering, and eventually became a state employee in the Camden City’s prosecutor’s office. Having a passion for criminal justice and police work, she eventually became a police officer for the city. She was off of her path, got on in, and discovered her passion.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community. It’s also a great way to show employers how dedicated and hardworking you are. If you have a gap on your resume, volunteering is a great way to fill it. And if you find a volunteer opportunity in which you can use your industry-related skills, this shows employers you’re passionate even during your off hours.

My dear friend, retired not so long ago with a great pension.

Goal/Resolution #9: Keep Learning
Never stop learning and adding to your knowledge base, but please don’t use attending school as a crutch. If you have more than two degrees, and two certifications, you have too many. Know what skills and qualifications are necessary in your field and got out there and brush up those skills. Take a certification course or even spend some time with someone in a different department to find out how other aspects of the company work. Make sure you never stay stagnant in your career and who knows what doors you might be opening for yourself in the future.

Goal/Resolution #10: Give Yourself a Break
Job hunting is tough, make no mistake. If you spend 100 percent of your time hunting for a job, you will burn out. Don’t forget to relax and take a break occasionally. Make time for the things which are important to you, so you can return to the search refreshed and ready to snag your dream job!

Just in case you are new to my blog, I am a daughter, sister, niece, mother, grandmother, friend, educator, and new business woman. My passion is and always has been empowering people. This passion comes from a deep need to take every wonderful and even every tragic event that I have experienced, as well as, all I have learned from my years of mentoring and supporting others, and use it to help you. I started this blog to give guidance, support, and wisdom to job seekers who want to find heart centered employment that aligns with their life’s purpose. I would love to hear from you, to connect with me on Twitter type (@resume_energy). I also encourage you to join my emerging Facebook community by going to facebook.com and search Kim Gardner, Resume Energy. As always, if you want to talk with me personally about this topic, email me at resumeenergy@yahoo.com, as my personal mission remains, to help you establish YOUR career focus.

Manifesting your ideal career ENERGY?

what_when_where_red_dice_400_clr_2609

Let’s now learn how to use the law of attraction to choose and manifest your ideal career. This powerful universal law states that you attract into your life, whatever you give your energy, attention and focus to, whether wanted or unwanted. If you want to attract your ideal job, first of all, you must be very clear about what you want.

Most of the time, you only have a very brief idea about the job you would like to do and as such, you tend to attract jobs that are not really suitable for you. How do you become clear about what you want? Most of the time, it is very difficult to know exactly what you want in an ideal career. One of the best ways to become clear is to make a list of things that you don’t like in a job. You don’t have to focus on what you don’t want to attract, but just examine briefly what you don’t want.

Once you have made a list of around 50 things that you don’t want, you can proceed by making that list of things into a list of what you want in an ideal job. The things that you want are the exact opposite of the things that you don’t want. For example, “I don’t want to do a job where I am not happy” will be replaced by I want a job where I am very happy and “I don’t want to have a boss” will be replaced by “I want a job where I am my own boss”. Once you are clear about what you want in your ideal job, you must raise your vibration to attract your ideal job into your life.

It is very important to know that in life, you do not get what you want but you get what you vibrate. You must therefore become a “vibrational match” to what you want in order to attract what you truly desire. You can raise your vibration by acting as if you already have the job that you want and start experiencing how you would feel if you were already doing that job. You can use affirmations or phrases like “I am in the process of attracting my ideal job” to raise your vibration to attract what you desire. You can also visualize what you want in your job and make as if you already have it.

You must note that whether you are using affirmations or visualization, the most important thing is that you must feel what it would be like to already possess your ideal job. Once you are very clear about your ideal job and you have raised your vibration to attract your ideal career, you should allow your ideal career to manifest in your life. Allowing is the absence of doubt and fear. If you have a strong desire to attract your ideal job but at the same time, you have strong doubts, you will never be able to attract your ideal career because you will be sending mixed signals in the Universe. If, on the other hand, you have a strong desire and some doubts, you will attract your ideal job, but it will take a little longer to manifest in your life.

The best way for rapid manifestation of your ideal career is when you have a strong desire and no doubt at all. The right understanding and application of the Law of Attraction will bring miraculous results in your life. “Whenever you are looking at the “HOW” or “WHAT “of something,” you are looking at it the wrong way. Looking at the “how to do something” keeps you looking and focused only on the PROBLEM! Unfortunately this is a double whammy. Believe it or not, that’s where you remain stuck. How, how, how! Do I need to give examples? Please don’t make me. Okay, you’ve convinced me, just one, I truly don’t enjoy looking at problems no more than I have to. How do I get a job with so many people out of work? Just typing that statement made me feel weak and powerless. Thoughts of unemployed heads of household, families, and mounting bills made me sad.

That is exactly what happens too many of us when we are faced with a problem. We get stuck looking at the problem. How can I get the money? How can I get the car fixed? How! How! How!

Did I come up with any creative ideas, strategies to solve this problem, not at all? I just kept charging the problem and each thought with more and more negative energy (emotion). Please get this, looking at the “how” is not and will never be the answer. This is my suggestion; focus on “how you want things to be! What I mean by that is what “state of being”, “what feelings do you want to have” what feelings do you want to experience”, doing this simple process, I firmly believe will solve the problem. I know that this sounds too simple to be true, because we have been taught many other “practical” ways to solve a problem, that we have no idea what we are actually doing.

Go to the internet and Google 16 practical tips for solving a problem, and see if any of those suggestions provided will help you with your career related challenges.

Just to share, I transitioned from an employee at the mercy of “contracts” for supplementing my income to creating this wonderful resume business in a few short months, because I focused on how I wanted to feel. I wanted to be free from someone controlling whether or not my monthly income increased (I wanted to participate in My Own Natural Energy Yield-MONEY), control the flow of money I made. I wanted to feel healthy and feel less stressed. I wanted to feel and be joyous; I wanted to feel like a person who has a large savings account. So I stood still for a moment, and created a vision of how I wanted to feel.

It was pretty easy, and didn’t it make me feel so much better, and guess what, when something came along that I was uncertain about, I now had something to measure against. I don’t know if this is your yard stick, but so many job seekers looking for employment are measuring it against this vision: “I am broke, and I need to find a job now”. That is not how your new job is going to find you! You are not going to draw the job to you makes your heart sing! The great motivational speaker, Bob Proctor, said, what are you trading your life for? Whatever kind of work you do should make you sing, and support you in more ways than your banking account or grocery bill. Take a moment and imagine how you would feel if you had that perfect job. George Bernard Shaw is quoted as saying, “Imagination is the beginning of creation”.

I had a client many years ago, that worked for a local cable company, and her job was to call clients when they owed money, and collect from them. Now I can’t think of a more life sucking job, and she was really unhappy and she wanted a different job. I asked her what she wanted, and she said that they don’t make jobs for what she wants. She did the same exercise and wrote down what made her heart sing. She said I love to hike; I love to be in the mountains, I love to be outdoors, I love to watch people’s faces light up. So I said, okay, let’s focus on the feelings. So we did, and she called me a couple months later, and she landed, a job, rewriting a hiking book.  So for two years, her job was to hike the woods and trails, take notes on all changes, and take people on the tours. Yes it was only a two year assignment or contact, but then after those two years, then she did it again, and ended up working in a spiritual retreat center. You know that was a long way from phoning people and saying, please pay your bill. So I know that this works.

What other feelings do you want to feel? Stop “shouldn’t” on you. Jot down, and explore the feelings that you want to feel. Now after you have done that you must forgive yourself for believing that you have to figure out right now what you have to do, and give yourself permission to feel the way you want to feel. Say this out loud: “I give myself permission to stop trying to figure out what I need or want to do, and give myself permission to feel the way you want to feel at work.”  Now believe that you can choose to live and feel (use those list of feelings), and be that, at some point every day. How do you feel? That is going to bring the job that you want to you, instead of you running out and looking forward it. Raise your vibration and it will come to you.

We are all free to raise our vibrations by being and living in the feelings we want. We can do, feel and say these statements regardless of whether or not we have a job or not. So right now, what can you do right now, that can help you feel free and energized?

Go do it now, don’t put it off. It doesn’t have to be something big, just something that can make you feel free, or whatever those feelings are that you listed. Watch some children play and laugh, read a good book, I don’t know what works for you, just do it. While you are doing whatever that is, say, this is the feeling that I want in my work. It is that simple. Believe me, it is really that simple. I know it sounds ridiculously simple, but it really is that simple.

I hate to drone on, but what the typical person, job seeker does, is try to use his head, and not his heart. You will never ever be truly happy with a job that you get with your head. I believe that if you come from that place where you’re head, your heart, and your soul connect, and overlap, you will get what you want. Be the very best person you can be, with the feelings that you want to create, and that job is going to show up on your doorstep.For this blog, I have a homework assignment.
