How To Write a BAD Resume

Nothing is more enthralling than writing up your first post college resume, right? ….Okay I am only joking about the thrills of the trade.  Let’s change things up a little by me sharing with you how to write a BAD resume in three easy steps.

Step 1. WRITE FAST.

You seriously want to be done with this horrible task as soon as possible.  Editing takes forever and you may have to find another person for a second opinion.  Human Resources will definitely know you were trying to say “shift” the 30 times you left out the f.

Step 2. WRITE A LOT.

No need to be shy- the employer has all day to read over your resume.   You should flood them with useless achievements beginning with your youth t-ball team home run up until the award winning omelet you created this morning. The less relevant the achievements are to the job posting the better.  You want to stand out!

Step 3. LIE. LIE. LIE.

This company doesn’t know you.  Embellish EVERYTHING! Odds are they are not going to actually cross check all credentials you list.

Three Small Steps to Daily Inspiration in 2014

The New Year is here and everyone is buzzing about how they plan to be the best they can be in 2014.  The general weight loss and health posts are flooding your news feed and you may even be part of the movement. Instead, I have laid out small, achievable steps to inspire myself each day.  If any of these small steps to daily inspiration sound like they could be beneficial to you in 2014, I hope that you will join me.Enjoying the sun

1. Find time each day to either reflect on or write out one thing in your life that makes you happy.  Even with 365 days in a year I believe this will be achievable.  It can be as simple as having a roof over your head.  I prefer to write out my thoughts so I have purchased a notebook just for this purpose.  If I am having a bad day, week or month I plan on flipping through it and reminding myself of all the happiness in my life.

2. Compliment someone in your life every day, whether it is a coworker, a family member, your significant other or a complete stranger.  Recognizing valuable qualities and the good work of other individuals is both humbling and inspiring in itself.  This small step will only reach its full potential in my eyes if I am truly genuine in my compliments to others.  I will not just compliment someone for the sake of doing it. 

 3. Stop talking badly about others. Just stop. There are many times in my life I find myself gossiping for the sake of gossiping.  If my discussion of another person is not something I would feel comfortable saying directly to them, I think it is best kept to myself.  Happy people do not need to address others shortcomings to feel better about themselves.  For any negative thought I have about another person I hope to address an area I can improve upon in my own life and switch the conversation.
