Want to Get Hired? Avoid These Resume Pitfalls

A generic resume will get you nowhere in the job market. Your resume would probably just be skimmed over like the hundreds of other resumes on the recruiter’s desk, or the hiring manager wouldn’t take a second glance at it. So, your efforts to land a job would be cut short early on in the game. There are many ways for your resume to keep you on the list of applicants under consideration and attract more offers for an interview. For instance, if you customize your resume for the particular job that you’re applying for, this will make it easier for the manager to choose your resume over all the other resumes. In their eagerness to create a job-specific resume, some  applicants go overboard and write the funniest things. Almagreta Resume Templates http://almagreta.com/resume-templates/ compiled some of the amusing statements that these job applicants included on their resumes.

The History of Link Building for SEO

Came across this one the other day and thought i’d post it as its relative to my interests. The timelines are not 100% accurate and for those, like me, who have been involved with SEO during this period, there’s a lot missing especially from around 2007-2010 where automated link building dominated the landscape. Either way, it put a smile on my face as it reminded me of my time starting off in the industry!
