AN INTRODUCTION TO THE REVITALISE YOUR RESUMÉ COURSES

Why should you do a Right Good resumé course?

Hello, welcome, and a huge congratulations! You’ve just taken your first step towards revitalising your resumé and writing a one page wonder. My name is Karolyn Timarkos and I’ve been there. You’ve applied for dozens – or even hundreds – of jobs and heard *crickets chirping*. I’ve been there. Maybe you’ve looked up ‘How to write a resume’ online and then browsed through some of the millions of hits, but you had no idea where to start because there’s so much information out there, and in no particular order, and you don’t know what’s good advice and what’s bad. Yup, I’ve been there too. READ MORE ....

How do the courses work?

Some of the videos in the different courses are the same. For example, in the grammar section of each course, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a school leaver or a CEO, you need to make sure you’re correctly using you’re and your. Some of the videos that are the same across the courses have different examples for you to download, depending on which career path you are on. Other videos are different for each course. And some courses omit certain videos that are in other course. For example if you’ve just left school, you don’t need to know how to consolidate years of work experience into one listing.

What are the differences between a CV and a resumé?

Why do you need to know the difference between a CV and a resumé? Because if your current resumé looks more like a CV, that’s probably the key reason why it’s not being read by recruiters. Technically, CV is an abbreviation of Curriculum Vitæ, which means course of life in Latin. A CV is an in-depth document containing a large amount of detail about an individual’s achievements, and full details of their complete working career. A CV is usually longer than a resumé – and sometimes much longer. Resumé is a French word that literally means abstract. A resumé is a summary of your education, qualifications, and work history. It’s as concise as possible, typically using bullet points, and should provide a snapshot of the key skills you have for this specific job that you’re applying for. A resumé should be tailored to every job you apply for, to highlight skills and experience relevant to that role. If you apply for two different jobs, even in the same industry, you should use two different resumés. READ MORE ...

What are the different types of resumés?

Chronological resumé

  • Lists your past jobs in a reverse-chronological order (most recent job first).
  • Recruiters can quickly scan an outline of your career path.
Functional resumé
  • Lists your skill sets (e.g. sales, administration, leadership).
  • Recruiters can quickly scan your areas of expertise.
Combination resumé
  • Combines the chronological and functional formats by grouping your skills under a Relevant Skills and Experience section, and then listing your employment history in reverse chronological order.
  • Allows you to showcase your skills, while also listing your work experience with job titles.

How long will it take?

The videos for these courses are around three hours in total. I don’t think you’ll complete this course and produce your first high quality resumé in less than a week. But don’t panic – you won’t be working on it full time for a week. Several times I suggest setting your work aside for 24 hours during the process. However, if you do want to bash through it in a day, then go for it. READ MORE ...

Can I wite it for you?

A lot of people ask me, can you write my resumé for me? But – learning how to write your own resumé has two distinct advantages. First, you know you. No one knows your skills and past work history better than you do – and certainly not a stranger who has one 30 minute Zoom meeting with you before taking your money. READ MORE ...

What does a course cover?

Each course is divided into 12 sections. READ MORE ...

How will I stay on track?

Various research sites indicate that less than 20% of people who sign up for an online course actually complete it. No one starts a course – especially one you’ve paid for – with the intention of not completing it. But, of course, life can get in the way – kids, study, work, ill health, Netflix – there are always distractions. What you need to do – right now – is decide that you will be one of the 20% who complete the course. YEAH! READ MORE ...
