Why Your Resume is Important

A resume is a one to two page document summarising your career objectives, professional experience, achievements, and educational background. Ideally, the heading of your resume should contain your Name, Address and Contact Information. As a guide, the body of your resume should be broken into the following sections: Career Objective, Profile, Professional Experience, Achievements, Scholastics, References and a Summary.  Your overall Career Objective should be brief, perhaps, two sentences; it should provide your potential employer with an indication of how you wish to move forward in your professional life. A concise profile or a summary should discuss who you are and how your skills and experience would allow you to contribute to the Company in general and your position in particular. Continue reading

It is becoming increasingly difficult to make ends meet with just one source of income. Thereby, more families are investigating the possibilities of starting their own extra-income business.  Most of these part-time endeavors are started and operated from the comfort and privacy of the home.

Almost everyone needs or wants more money coming into the household, and with this desire most people would like to have a home based business that is capable of producing a little extra. The trouble is though, that like the rest of us, they may be time poor.

By definition, most people today are busy, however, if we are honest with ourselves we could find extra time to commence a home-based business. If it means enough to us or if we have a definitive goal, we will find the time and means to not only start it but to ensure that it is successful. By successful, that could mean an extra $100 a week or $1000 a month.

To achieve this though, we may need to re-evaluate certain favorite pastimes, such as having a couple of beers with the guys or watching TV, however, if you reach your goal of an extra $100 or $1000.00 per month, you may very well then have all the time you want for doing whatever you want to do.
