When you customize your resume be sure to thoroughly review your resume for these errors before submitting it for application. Check all of your tenses, particularly in the employment sections. Your current position should be in present tense and your previous positions should be in past tense. Think of it like this: you want to show the recruiter what you are currently doing in your current role (even if the project happened in the past); and you want to show them what you did in your previous roles (which all happened in the past).

Back to School for Marketplaces and Simple Connectivity, Part Two

Originally posted by:  Mary Stanhope, Vice President of Product and Marketing at Global Capacity Last week, we offered a little refresher course—in honor of the beginning of the school year—on the marketplace model.  Simply put, a marketplace disrupts “business as usual” offloading transactional processes done by people to simplify the connection of buyers and sellers and delivering services.  This week’s part two segment covers the ABCs of Global Capacity’s One Marketplace and how this award winning marketplace of networks addresses the inherent challenge of simplifying the buying of network connectivity services. Connectivity buyers and sellers alike are trying to transact in a fragmented, opaque, complex and inefficient marketplace. Why do buyers and sellers have a hard time finding each other in the telecom world?
