Welcome to The Shine Factor Blog! I’m glad you stopped by for a visit. This blog is dedicated to helping you be more confident at work, in your job search and in your personal life. I named this blog The Shine Factor because the things I write about will contribute to helping your true self shine bright. Whether you are out of work and hoping to secure a job or looking for a new place of employment it can be stressful. Today’s job search process requires us to be technologically up to date and present ourselves as accomplished professionals – no matter what type of work we desire. I want to help you understand what Human Resource Managers and hiring personnel are expecting of job applicants. I want to share tips and best practices that will help you be more effective in finding jobs that you are qualified for, making application, interviewing and putting your best food forward so that you can shine brighter than the competition.
I think everyone has at least one area of their life where they wish they were more confident. I certainly do, in fact I have several areas that I am working on. Here is another area that this blog can help you – to enhance and boost your level of confidence. Doubts can hold us back from trying new things, be they challenges at work, starting a new hobby, making friends or reaching for the job we dream about. William Shakespeare said,
Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good gift we oft might win,
by fearing to attempt.
My name is Posey Salem and I have worked in a variety of employment situations, which gives me a broader understanding of business and the hiring process. I am a professional resume writer, employment strategist and coach. I know how it feels to be fired, to be overwhelmed and frustrated while seeking a new job, to be nervous during a job interview, to be let go because of economic down-sizing, to be the new person on the job and to enjoy a satisfying and successful career. I can help you, through the professional services and products I offer and through the information I will share on this blog.
Some of the topics I will write about include:
- Job Search Strategies
- Interview Tips
- Image Updates
- Getting Started With Your New Job
- Career Transitions
- Confidence Tips
