How to write a resume for the $80k Professional

The one page resume you put together in high school might have landed you a lifeguarding job, but it will not get that $80,000 plus executive position today. It’ll sink right to the bottom of the hiring manager’s recycling bin.
If you’re trying to move up the corporate ladder, it’s time to give your resume a professional makeover.

Shortcuts To Land Your First Job

Hello – I wanted to share with you an infographic created by Collegefeed, to help students and new grads with the job-search process:

Collegefeed is a new social platform that acts like a personal career assistant to help students and new grads find their dream jobs. Collegefeed takes a new turn from the traditional network, as it is designed solely for new grads and is a way for them to brand themselves professionally for the first time using their college experience. Collegefeed offers tools that go beyond simply viewing a connection’s contacts or a university page, but puts students in front of a company–Facebook, Google, Go Daddy, and many others–that are looking to fill entry level positions. Additionally, Collegefeed includes a Netflix-like recommendation engine that suggests companies and positions (and now fellow students) based on a person’s degree, interests and other factors.

Please let me know if I can send additional information and I hope you like the information!
