My 5 Tips for Writing a Great Resume

My 5 Tips for Writing a Great Resume

As I mentioned in this post, I accepted a job offer late last fall. Leading up to that offer though, I had so many interviews. And I submitted even more applications that didn’t ever lead to an interview. At the end of the day, searching for a job is a numbers game. The more applications you submit, the higher your chances of landing at least one interview. The more interviews you have, the greater your chances of receiving a job offer.

But… what can one do to improve her chances of getting that interview? The simple answer? Make your resume the most appetizing thing that comes across the recruiter’s desk that day. But how does one do that? To help you get your resume in fighting shape, I’ve worked with one of my besties (she works as a recruiter!) to round up my 5 tips for writing a great resume.

Oh and BTW before we dive in: my top, skirtcoat , and sunglasses are all on sale! And you’re def gonna want to register for this week’s giveaway!!! (Trust me!)

How to Be Festive for Valentine’s Day While Single

How to Be Festive for Valentine's Day While Single, Valentine's Day Outfit

My mother’s going to get so depressed when she sees the title for today’s post. But, honestly, I’m actually happy to be flying solo for Valentine’s Day this year.

And by “solo” I mean with a large group of my darling friends. Plus a glass (or a few!) of champagne. Because that’s the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day while single.

How to Stick to a New Year’s Resolution + a 30 Before 30 Update

How to Stick to a New Year's Resolution + a 30 Before 30 Update

Happy Monday, friends! My to-do list was so never-ending this weekend that I actually fell asleep on the couch last night after dinner, with my computer in hand. So, for the third time in two weeks: better late than never!

Today’s post is all about how to stick to a New Year’s resolution. Each year, I like to set overarching goals for the year. So, instead of “take one trip per month,” it might be “travel more”.

This year, my resolution was to cook more. It was actually to cook in every meal on weekdays and only eat out on weekends, but that was quickly revised as I realized that wasn’t sustainable. Last week, I cooked in for all but two meals (which is quite impressive noting that I maybe cooked in twice in three months last fall!).

What to Wear to a Semi-Formal Event this Fall

What to Wear to a Semi-Formal Event this Fall, Tobi Midi Dress

This fall is surprisingly void of weddings for me. Typically, I have at least 2-3 weddings a season… but, somehow, this fall, I have 0 (thank you to all of my friends who are doing long engagements!). However, I do still have a few semi-formal events coming up (i.e. galas and the opera) which require me to know how to ace that in-between-cocktail-attire-and-black-tie look aka figure out what to wear to a semi-formal event.

What I love about semi-formal events is that just about anything goes. Semi-formal is basically the dressier side of cocktail attire until you hit the more casual side of black tie. Long or short, it doesn’t matter. So you can have a lot more fun with your looks.
