June is the mid-point of the year and a good time to reflect. We encourage our content writing customers to re-evaluate their content needs in case they have gaps that should be filled. For job seekers, we suggest they think through their job search approach and see if they can identify any areas that might need improvement:
Does their resume need brushing up?
Should they increase their networking efforts?
What about their interview skills? Have they prepared for the tough questions that are common and did they compile their own questions to ask?
Does their LinkedIn profile compliment their resume, or do they have conflicting information?
Are they only including appropriate content on social media sites?
At Revision Resume, we also evaluate our business at the mid-year point. We are constantly seeking ways to help our clients meet their needs while ensuring a strong foundation for our business.
It is also a good time to celebrate our successes! Here are some highlights we have identified for the first half of 2022.
