- It's hard to believe that Update Your Resume Month turns 10 next
month! Now is the perfect time to hit up radio, TV, and newspapers to
get the word out and get some free publicity for your business.
I have found that the best day to book appearances (especially if it's
your first time) is on the Sunday before Labor Day. Producers are
hungry for guests because it's one of the slowest weekends of the
entire year for TV news outlets. It seems everyone is on vacation and
good guests are hard to find.
For us, it's the start of our busy season again! So find 5 new trends
or changes you can talk about, send an email to the producers and
editors, and follow up. Make sure to tell them something they don't
know about if you want to pique their interest. (what occupations are
currently trending, or how long is it taking for the average job
seeker to land work, or how to use LinkedIn in a job search w/o
tipping off a current employer.)
Remember, this isn't a sales pitch for your business. It's a reminder
to everyone, how a bad resume hinders an effective job search.
Best to you,
