Did You Know that Gratitude can Affect Your Ability to Write an Effective Resume?
I can’t stress enough how important it is to be aware of your emotional state of mind while creating your resume.

What energy is your resume carrying?
Frustration… Worry… Defeat… Deficit…Uncertainty… Lack…?
You can transform these energies to Hope… Confidence… Abundance…!

Did You Know that the Font on Your Resume can be Subconsciously Exhausting to Readers?
When I first introduced the idea of the subconscious effects of fonts in resume writing, I never thought it would end up being such a controversial topic. I urge you to ignore what you read on the internet that Times New Roman is the best font for your resume, and consider this logical concept…
There are thousands of fonts, but two of them are usually used in resume writing – Serif or Sans Serif type fonts. I strongly prefer Sans Serif-type fonts, such as Arial, Calibri, Tahoma, etc.
Look at the two letters below. The one on the left requires the brain to draw seven 7 strokes to process the letter, while the one on the right only requires the brain to draw four strokes to process.
Additionally, even though both sets of text below are size 12 font, the Serif-type will appear a little bit smaller on your resume than the Sans-Serif font, causing the brain to work even harder.
Serif-type fonts are subconsciously exhausting on the brain. The brain has to work almost three times harder and doesn’t leave as much energy left to process the content – your skills, abilities, and accomplishments.
Serifs are the short strokes that make up a letter, such as in a Times New Roman font. Sans means ‘without;’ Sans-Serif means ‘without Serif’ such as in an Arial-type font.
Professional Profile or Not to Professional Profile
What is a Professional Profile?
This section of your resume gives the reader a high level overview of your background, and should speak the language of the job posting. Specifically, customize your resume by using key words from the job posting to describe how your experience is consistent with the needs of the employer. One of my #EffectiveResumeSecrets is to use mostly adjectives as the first word of each bullet point in the Professional Profile section to describe your overall experience.
- Remember, a bullet point is only one line – It does not wrap to the next line – that would make it a sentence
- Bullet points do not contain a period at the end – it is not a sentence, but rather a clear concise thought
- Use the Synonyms function in Microsoft Word to identify other relevant adjectives
