Want to Get Hired? Avoid These Resume Pitfalls

A generic resume will get you nowhere in the job market. Your resume would probably just be skimmed over like the hundreds of other resumes on the recruiter’s desk, or the hiring manager wouldn’t take a second glance at it. So, your efforts to land a job would be cut short early on in the game. There are many ways for your resume to keep you on the list of applicants under consideration and attract more offers for an interview. For instance, if you customize your resume for the particular job that you’re applying for, this will make it easier for the manager to choose your resume over all the other resumes. In their eagerness to create a job-specific resume, some  applicants go overboard and write the funniest things. Almagreta Resume Templates http://almagreta.com/resume-templates/ compiled some of the amusing statements that these job applicants included on their resumes.

Ideas for Small Business Marketing Budgets [Infographic]


Small business owners across the world understand that investing in marketing materials and services is a necessary expense to ensure future customers and revenue. Even with this knowledge, many small business owners ignore their marketing plans and budgets until all the money is doled out for the year. This needs to change if small business owners want to be intelligent with their expenditures and get the best ROI possible.

We have four main strategies that were highlighted in the infographic that have a different fit for small businesses at different periods of the business. The four budgets are:

  1. Dollar Approach – A simple budget style, yet less effective since it’s only a flat rate method
  2. Match Competitor – In this plan you’re trying to keep up with your competitor, it’s not the most scientific method and you’re only playing catchup
  3. Percent of Sales – This strategy starts to get a bit more accurate and bases your spending off of your annual sales, generally about 9-12% of sales.
  4. Marketing Plan Objective – This strategy is the best budget of the four, it’s the most accurate although the most difficult to implement. It involves breaking out your business goals and aligning marketing objective with them. Then you allocate budget to the objectives at the appropriate level.

The most important takeaway is that small businesses should do a more intelligent job planning their budgets for the year and aligning their marketing spend with their business goals. Budgeting can be one of the least fun parts of your year, but very necessary, and it will pay off in the long run.

Employee Leasing: How to Relieve Your Employer Headaches

Employee leasing is a great staffing alternative, especially for small and medium-sized companies, as well as start-ups. Firms can hire and work with leased staff, employees from an external company called the employee leasing firm. Client companies simply pay the leasing firm a regular fee and the leasing firm handles the client’s leased employees’ salary, benefits, and paperwork. Aside from unburdening start-up companies and similar firms from HR responsibilities, employee leasing offers great advantages.
