Why You Should Create a Weekly Planning Process by Andy Robinson

Read more at http://www.careerealism.com/create-weekly-planning-process/

Source: www.CAREEREALISM.com

Executive coaching clients who have worked with me have heard me encourage them – time and again – to begin their week with a well-thought-out weekly planning process. A process that I first embedded into my weekly routine after reading David Allen’s best seller on time management and planning, Getting Things Done, years ago. My weekly planning process allows me to enter each week feeling “in control.” Not only that, but it also gives me confidence that I am focusing on the most important things in my life – my work life and my personal life – THAT week.

5 Tools to ‘Spring Clean’ Your Resume by Michelle Riklan

Read more at http://www.careerealism.com/resume-tools-spring-clean/

Source: www.CAREEREALISM.com

You probably don’t like spring cleaning; it’s about as tiring and tedious as updating your resume. But like spring cleaning, improving your resume has a huge payoff. Think of the resume as your home, cleaning it come spring gives it a fresh look and makes it look welcoming for guests. An updated or “cleaned” resume, on the other hand, gives you the upper hand when an unexpected opportunity (a job offer or a recruiter) comes knocking at your doorstep. Fortunately, spring cleaning your resume doesn’t need to be as exhausting as cleaning your house. You might even have fun doing it.
