Dear Lifehacker, Should I change my resume? I’m currently using a basic resume template, but I’ve also looked at writing up a technical resume. While a technical resume would be no good for retail or customer service jobs (which is what I’m mostly applying for now), would it be worth writing a resume in that style for entry-level IT jobs? Thanks, Hunting Hard
When job hunting, your resume has a way of highlighting little career imperfections in black and white. Maybe you’ve job-hopped, had a long gap between gigs or earned a degree that requires explaining (hello, art history majors!). Is there a way to smooth over these resume imperfections without being dishonest? You betcha.
Dear Lifehacker, I have recently been moved into an acting management position (team leader) while my manager is on extended leave. I am expected to be in this position for at least one month and potentially two or more depending, while still maintaining my current job and duties. Management experience is very useful in future job prospects, but how should I represent my time “acting” in a management role on my CV and on LinkedIn? Thanks, Managing Better
