By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

NEWS FLASH: It’s not that difficult to put together an excellent resume! There are hundreds of resume books out there, with at least 50 different ways to write resumes “the right way.”

But after almost 25 years of experience as an Executive Career Coach, I can tell you that there is a “secret code” for resumes. And either you know it, or you don’t.

You already know that LinkedIn plays a huge role in job search. You undoubtedly have received invitations from business contacts to connect on LinkedIn. And you probably took a few hours out of your busy life to create a LinkedIn profile. Perhaps you even sent-out some invitations for people to connect with you. Now you’re asking yourself, “Is that all there is?” and “How can I get more value and results out of LinkedIn?”
