“Cater your resume to the job you want, not the job you’re doing. If you don’t highlight the skills that cross over to the job you want, you’ll have trouble getting people to see you for more than the job title you have.”
“When leaving a job for a new one, try to give yourself a gap week, so you don’t burn out. Odds are you either won’t be able to or won’t feel comfortable taking time off from your new job for at least a few months, so it’s good to take a few days rest between those jobs if you can afford it.
If your industry is kind of small and you plan on sticking with the same kind of employer, do not burn bridges. You never know who you might end up working with again. I’m so glad that I left my last job on good terms, because I ended up working with some of those people again at my new job less than a year later.”
