Takeover Tuesday: My Tips for a Resume that will WOW!

Hey Fam!  I have brought Takeover Tuesday back on my blog after receiving many questions from you all about different areas of business, beauty, and fitness! 

Q: MB, you have a unique career and I'm a stylist looking to apply for work; since I don't have a stuffy career I don't want a stuffy resume or should I stick to the basics regardless? Help!

1. Turn Stiff into Creative: Just because this is a resume doesn't mean it cant have personality.  In fact, without your personality what makes your paper different from another qualified candidate.  Be sure to come across very professional but make sure your resume reads friendly and knowledgeable.

2.  Classic Font never goes out of style:  There are certain things that should remain constant on a resume and that includes not having a flashy font that's not readable.  Georgia or Times New Roman are best and between 10-12 size work well.  The only time I say to veer away from this is if your position is in the field of graphic artist or similar.  At that point you could push the envelope a little more. At the end of the day whether its a manager, owner, or HR representative looking at your resume they are looking for the facts!

3.  Relevancy wins every time:  Make sure that the first things your potential employer sees is going to be what is relevant in building value for your position within their company then follow that with other pertinent information.  Realistically as an employer we look to scan a resume 10-15 seconds for information we see valuable it would be ideal if those things weren't at the bottom of the page.

I wish you and the rest of my readers good luck on your current and future job hunts!  xoMB


Fashion Friday: 2013 Spring Trends I love!

Bermuda Shorts!!!  Such a great short to have for day and night looks!
Stripes the new polka dots? Well nothing can replace my signature but this trend will give us another staple pattern to work with.
For those that have ever felt torn about wearing leather too early or too late in the season the trend is coming back in full force! Even the men are breaking out with leather trends on their jacket sleeves,   t-shirts, and more!
Def one of my faves this far! Sport dresses will give every woman tomgirl or fashionista a great reason to let the legs be front and center this spring!
Black & White! Can't escape the classics!
