Keep your resume error free. It is deceptively easy to make mistakes on your resume and exceptionally difficult to repair the damage once an employer gets it. As well as checking your spelling and grammar, make sure your employment dates match up and you have provided your current contact information.
“Some people dream of success… while others wake up and work hard at it.”
“Every day we’re given opportunities, some of us see them and some are too busy to notice.”
Offer to lend a hand (yes, even if it’s something you would not normally do). Remember, the people you work with, especially your direct report see and hear things regularly.
“In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.”
Maintain professionalism – at all costs! Small world/smaller industry.
“There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”
Your resume should focus on what the employer wants to hear about you BUT ensure honesty & integrity.
