I have been self employed many years as an electrician. What is the best way to document that on a resume?

Great question.  There are many people who have their own business and state that on their resume.   List your business just like you would list any other employer on your resume.  Note…

I've been working for a company for 2 years. I started right out of college. To say the least, it's a grind. I've been earning entry level salary (~$35k/yr) throughout my employ, but my managers really push us hard (I work an average of 65hrs/wk). I'm worried because I can feel myself burning out. I've brought this up to my managers and they say this is the job. Therefore, I want to look for new work but don't want to get into the same situation. I want a reasonable work-life balance. Is that hard to come by these days with a bad economy?? I have no problem working hard, but I don't want my entire life to be consumed by my job. I feel like recruiters won't like if I tell them I want to work an honest work week and not always be at the office for 12hrs a day. Any advice for me on what I should do? Am I delusional to think that I'll find somewhere I can work an average of 40hr/wk? Thank you!

No, you are not unreasonable to want that. There are many companies who value work life balance. I do not think that you will have a hard time finding a job at around 35K a year that gives you that balance.…

I am a fashion designer from San Francisco. I am looking for entry level opportunities in Fashion industry. Thing is I don't have a degree in Fashion design, I took classes at an art school, but did not pursue for a degree. Having said that, I do have qualitative internship and freelance experience as an apparel designer. Would not having a degree be a problem in job hunt? PS- I have a bachelors degree in computer engineering(If it counts)

For most companies, you will probably find that they seek candidates that have a similar degree…

I have a Bachelors, magna cum laude in Accounting and Business and an MBA with a gpa of 3.8. I worked my whole way through college, in the accounting industry, but did a little "job hopping" as I moved to a different university. I've been out of school for 3 years. In those three years, I've earned my Certified Public Accounting license and Certified Fraud Examiner license and joined Toastmasters, switched to a position of responsibility in a not-for-profit (from public accounting), new volunteer efforts, and even was in a theatrical production, and I am bored. Part of my boredom comes from my personality type, but another is that there is no way up in my company now. I have so much to offer - 131 IQ, certifications, volunteerism, leadership skills, 7 years of accounting experience. I just don't know where I belong and what is the right job for me. I've been looking casually for about a year. I've had one interview for a small accounting firm that was not a good job fit. I'm either over qualified, or under qualified. What am I doing wrong? And how can I find the right direction to take my career?

To me, it doesn’t sound like a matter of being under qualified or over qualified. It sounds more like you are unsure of where your passion is. It also sounds like you have gone from one extreme to another;…
