Name Changed due to Marriage?

If you have changed your name due to marriage, don’t forget to change your name on your voice mail and any pertinent documents such as email addresses and signatures, or your resume. If you have certificates from when you were single and concerned they may create confusion, you could include your maiden name in brackets in the personal details on your resume.  It is about recruiters or employers being able to join the dots easily.

Meeting Selection Criteria

When choosing jobs to apply for, focus on job ads where you meet 70-80% or more of the selection criteria.To do otherwise is a waste of energy and most likely sets you up for disappointment. Repeat disappointments may lead to feeling demoralised, to the point of giving up or not caring.  Take care of yourself and maintain focus on those jobs where you have the best chance of success.
