I read over my last post on customizing your resume and am not sure if I made the point I wanted to about a 1 page resume. The one pager is a brief version of your 5 pager. Title, company and what you do, so any dummy can understand it. A few attaboys are fine. […]

You need to create an all encompassing resume. Every job, every title and every Attaboy you ever had. Salesman of the year is an attaboy. “Thanks, I couldn’t have done this without you” is also an Attaboy. Don’t feel bad if this is 5 or more pages, no one is ever going to see it. […]

It would be a fantasy – but wouldn’t it be nice if the holiday season went in an orderly fashion, one event to the next, with perfect orbs of celebration repeating themselves in different colors.

We all know that baking with flour is a pretty basic staple, but depending on how you use it, the results sure can vary, can’t they? An expert can take the same basic ingredients I have in my kitchen and come up with impressive results because that expert knows how to use the basic ingredients […]

In my role as a Recruiter at Impact Advisors and in my new, expanded role as Social Media Manager, blog Editor-in-Chief, Website Analyst, Sales Support, Content Creator, and Staffing Support, or, as I like to joke, Lady Baglady, I write a lot.

Recently I wrote a post about the new healthcare IT consulting skill set because as the consulting market softened in 2014, I saw many consultants struggle to find contracts as well as recruiter friends (and myself) challenged to find candidates that met all the new requirements.

Have you seen a sonogram of a pregnancy in a friend’s announcement online? We all have! That sonogram is the beginning of a particular child’s digital footprint, before they are even born. Similarly, every time someone posts a cute picture, mentions their name, and shares a funny video of the child, their digital footprint expands. […]

We’ve all heard of the importance of networking when trying to find a job. We’ve all seen the stats that say the majority of jobs come from someone in our network. It is absolutely true that you should engage your network when searching for a job. This is true in the healthcare IT world just […]
