We don't blame you for your concern. That is why Chris Villanueva, CPRW at Let's Eat, Grandma resume services decided to break down the key differences in submitting your resume as a PDF or a Word Document.


Word Doc vs. PDF (Spark Notes Version)


Here is the Spark Notes version of the podcast episode:

  • Word Documents are better for ATS Systems. ATS systems are better able to pick up on keywords if they are submitted as a Word Document.
  • PDF documents are better for visual consistency. PDFs are image files (naturally) – and therefore cannot be easily altered.
  • Recruiters tend to prefer Word Documents over other formats. Recruiters will generally prefer Word Documents, so don’t you dare send your RTF file! Many recruiters also prefer PDF documents.
  • Don’t forget to follow instructions. Remember that if there are instructions to send in a specific format, follow those instructions. Being a rebel does not look good – nor does being ignorant.


Don't forget to enter our 2019 sharing contest, where every month we select a winner to get resume help. Chris will personally help you write your resume by getting on the phone with you. Just share any one of our podcast episodes on Facebook and tag "Let's Eat, Grandma" (the resume service).

#25) Hack Your Job Search with More Efficient Communication | Andrew McCann, Founder of 11trees #25) Hack Your Job Search with More Efficient Communication | Andrew McCann, Founder of 11trees Wed, 09 Jan 2019 22:21:46 GMT 42:10 5c36673637379edc290574ed no https://shows.pippa.io/job-seekers-podcast/hack-your-job-search-with-more-efficient-communication Until 2/15: Get the CAREER WARRIOR APP for free here: https://mailchi.mp/letseatgrandma/careerwarriorappsignup full 1 25 Until 2/15: Get the CAREER WARRIOR APP for free here: https://mailchi.mp/letseatgrandma/careerwarriorappsignup


Welcome to the 25th episode of the Let’s Eat, Grandma Career Warrior Podcast! Today we are going to show you how you can communicate more efficiently in your career.


But first, let me ask you this: How long does it take for you to send out messages? Maybe you just met 10 people at a networking event and the idea of following up with them sounds daunting.


Truth is, writing is more important than ever in the workplace. Knowledge workers spend all day writing: email messages, user stories, blog posts...And traditional education systems typically don’t do a great job teaching us how to write for the workplace.

  • But how do you message that CEO you just met to build a relationship that may lead to your dream gig?
  • How do you craft a cover letter for a job application that is personal, specific to the position, and concise?
  • How can you be more efficient completing online applications to scale your outbound efforts?
  • As importantly, how do you do get all this writing done efficiently?


By the end of this episode, you will have the opportunity to save HOURS of your job search or at work. Because, we are going to motivate you and show you how you can be more efficient. And at the end of this episode, we are going to show you how you can get a special tool which can cut your wasted time in half.


Andrew McCann is the Founder of 11Trees, a company dedicated to great helping people scale engagement through great writing.


Andrew taught writing and engineering design at Drexel University for 10 years -- and realized how much time was wasted on writing comments for his students. He personally developed an application that would cut down the amount of time typing these things and allowed himself and many others to give more personal feedback, while cutting down the time it took.


According to Andrew, he is a “code whisperer, client earner, support guru, and overall strategist”


So stop wasting time with your messages and get personal.


Questions we cover:


  • Who’s Andrew McCann? Any exciting, funny, or awkward stories you can recall from your Drexel or GE life?
  • What gave Andrew the idea to develop 11trees?
  • Why do we spend so much time typing messages to people?
  • Is it all really productive?
  • How personal do we really need to get in our messages?
  • What should a good reachout message look like for someone?
  • What are all the different ways the Career Warrior App can be used? Who should be using it?
  • How much time we can we actually save here?
  • How can I most effectively use the Career Warrior Apps to boost workplace productivity while saving time?

Let's Eat, Grandma interviewed Matt Landers, the CEO of Covalence, a top-notch online coding bootcamp. Matt began his career in coding with a 10 year run at Microsoft in various tech positions.

  • How do you take that first step in learning how to code? What’s the best way to learn how to code?
  • Let’s be realistic: how long will it take for me to have a foundational understanding of coding so I can land a job?
  • What are the best programming languages to learn for 2019 and beyond? Are there any programming languages that you think will be relevant for a long time?
  • What is the biggest mistake someone can make when they are just starting out in their coding careers? What are some mistakes you spot in beginner programmers?
  • I need to get a job. What should be the first step I take? We will dive in here and see what we come up with as we flow.

  • Where do I find my leads? How do most people go wrong in their search for business?
  • Why is it so important to hustle in times of darkness (e.g. recession, slow season)? How can a sales person succeed in this period?

We are going to talk about how you can use hypnosis to boost your job search-- and will be putting you all through a hypnosis session at the end.


Today we have Mark Tyrrell, founder of HypnosisDownloads.com, which is the largest provider of hypnosis in the world. Together with his team, Mark has served over 600,000 hypnosis downloads and treated 5,000 patients in personal one-on-one therapy. He’s helped thousands upon thousands improve their self-esteem and overcome major life obstacles including depression, panic attacks, and anxiety. 

 

DISCLAIMER: Mark is actually going to perform a mini-hypnosis session at the end for all of you guys to get acquainted with the practice. You heard me right…you’re getting hypnotized. I can’t emphasize this enough: please find a good place to do this session. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery. We are not responsible for anything that you do during this podcast, so please don't be careless. Pause this podcast, come back to it whenever you want and do the hypnosis, but please no hypnotic driving out there. You won’t get anything from it any way if you are splitting your focus on something else. Okay – disclaimer over.

 

So how can you benefit from hypnosis? As you listen to this session, start thinking about some of the unconscious behaviors and thought patterns that may be holding you back in your career. Is it your confidence? Is it interview nerves? Is it your inability to face criticism? We are here to help you, and this session is going to help on the deeper level.

 

Here's what we cover:

 

  • What is hypnosis? Would love to go into some of the misconceptions people have about it vs. what is actually is!
  • Why is it important to go way beyond conscious mind? Can’t I just “think” myself better when dealing with my issues?
  • How long does it really take to change? What kind of results should I expect from hypnotherapy?
  • What do you think are some behaviors and thought patterns that are holding back people in their careers? How can they deal with them?
  • We will end by offering a sneak peak into hypnosis.

#20) How to Develop Your Personal Brand #20) How to Develop Your Personal Brand Wed, 05 Dec 2018 22:40:15 GMT 23:35 5c0853cf26a97ca90997d1ac no https://www.letseatgrandma.com/blog/how-to-establish-your-personal-brand/ full 1 20 Welcome to the 20th episode of the Let’s Eat, Grandma Career Warrior Podcast! (This was formerly the LEG Job Seeker's Podcast). Today we are going to talk about how you can establish or continue to improve your own personal brand.

 

Everyone has their own personal brand whether they know it or not.

 

But here’s the caveat: Most people don’t know they can easily impact the direction, strength, or even awareness of their brand – and use it to their advantage.

 

Why should we all have our own personal brands?

 

Having a solid personal brand can…

 

  • Give you more direction in your career.
  • Help your social life flourish.
  • Take your confidence to new heights.
  • Boost others’ confidence in you!
  • Open up doors for promotion in the future.
  • Further your professional connections.
  • Strengthen the connections you already have!

 

Here are four things you can do at right now to start developing your personal brand:

 

  • #1. Define what your brand is and what you love doing.
  • #2. Rework your elevator pitch.
  • #3. Do a social media audit.
  • #4. Involve yourself in the community.


Remember that your brand is an ongoing, ever-evolving thing. So if you’re not happy with where you are now, change it. If your brand stops serving you in the future, you can always change it. Just remember to have an awareness of your brand so you can use it to your advantage!


Wrapping it up:

 

Leave us a review on iTunes!!! (We may even give you a shout-out next episode).

 

If you want even more tips on how to improve your resume, cover letter, or LinkedIn (keywords, headline, etc.), then we highly recommend you subscribe to our career score newsletter, which also will assign you a score based on how good your resume is. SIGN UP HERE: www.letseatgrandma.com

Why we are changing the name:


We quickly realized that it's not just about the job search. This podcast is intended for people who want to live their best life. And have their best career. The common bond is that people who listen to this podcast are smart, goal driven, and want to put their best foot forward in anything they do.  People that listen to this podcast want to go about their day feeling energized, motivated, and fulfilled by what they do. They realize that this is not only an ideal but something that can actually be achieved. People who listen to this podcast are remarkable.


The goal of this podcast is not only to help you land your dream job, but to help you be successful in the workplace so you can thrive in your career.


The difference? It’s a long term mindset -- not just a scramble to land a job and listen to a few episodes while you are in your job search. So, we realized that this podcast was not just for job seekers but for professionals who were passionate about their career and the gifts they want to put out in the world.


What you can expect in future episodes


We have hundreds of more episodes coming up. And they are only going to get better. We will be bringing in career experts from several different industries to talk about what makes them successful, you’re going to get the career coaching advice, advice on how to boost your resume, advice on how to improve your energy levels so you are really killing it throughout the day, anything that is going to supplement your career to improve your life.


Because your job search is just a part of the bigger picture, which is your career, which is a part of the bigger picture of living a fulfilling life.

  • Let’s talk about LINKEDIN! How do you use LinkedIn to complement your networking efforts?
  • Why is it important that people should be networking not only during the times that they need it?
  • What are some ways that most people can be more effective at networking?
  • What are some events that job seekers should have on their radar to lead them to their job?
  • How much time should be devoted to networking vs. applying online to job postings via Indeed, Zip Recruiter, etc.?
  • What preparation (if any) should be done prior to a networking event? Is there a helpful mindset for you to be in?
  • Is there homework to be done after a networking event?
  • What are some helpful tips for folks who are predisposed to not want to network (either shy or introverted).
  • What do you think is the biggest mistake a job seeker can make who is trying to build a network any why?

#15) Listen to This When You Feel Rejected #15) Listen to This When You Feel Rejected Wed, 31 Oct 2018 21:41:21 GMT 24:10 5bda2181e8f43ff3726f283d no https://shows.pippa.io/job-seekers-podcast/listen-to-this-when-you-feel-rejected full 1 15 Welcome to Episode #15: Listen to this episode when you feel rejected.

 

  • You may have applied for a job that you were really interested in -- and got turned down because someone thought you were unqualified.
  • You may have applied to 100 jobs—and not gotten one call back.
  • You may have gotten passed up on a promotion.


The goal of this episode is to lift you out of a rejected state -- and get you in a place where you can continue fighting for your purpose.

 

Preview of Core Concepts of Understanding Rejection:

 

  1. Everybody goes through it—even some of the greatest people in our history. (Henry Ford, Michael Jordan, Albert Einstein, J.K. Rowling)
  2. Understand what you are feeling and why you are feeling it. (There is a science behind acknowledging your emotion: research has shown that when you identify what core emotion you are feeling, then it instantly becomes more manageable).
  3. Remember that your core identity (who you really are) goes way beyond these external things.

 

What to do now.

 

  • Keep going: case and point. Remember that the results-oriented things in life (your success) is a numbers game.
  • Find a group of people trying to achieve the same thing that you are. Relate to them.
  • When you feel rejected, label your emotion, and remind yourself of your core identity -- and why you're going to keep going.

So you will probably/hopefully hear some things that you did not know. You will hear hacks and techniques that other job seekers are employing to help them deal with their stress.


Here are some questions we ask our panel of job seekers:


  • What are some challenges of your job search?
  • Any interview horror stories?
  • Any personal stress relief tips during the job search?
  • What was the lowest point of your job search?
  • What are some personal success stories in getting a job?
  • How has networking landed you a job?

#9) How long should your resume be? | Just-ask-Chris MINISODE #1 #9) How long should your resume be? | Just-ask-Chris MINISODE #1 Wed, 12 Sep 2018 17:07:32 GMT 9:29 5b9947d454fc7780250a60bf no https://www.letseatgrandma.com full 1 9 This is...the Let’s Eat, Grandma podcast number 9 – this is Just-Ask-Chris Minisode #1.


We are going to take commonly asked job search questions, break them down, and give you the information as one in-depth answer.

 

Why a minisode? We wanted to give you another way to learn complex information. We take the complex information with a million different rules (like resume writing in the English language) and give you a way to digest it easily. Little resume snacks if you will.

 

We are doing this for those go getters who are hyper learners. So those who really want to take a moment in their life—walking to work, waiting in line at the doctor’s office, whatever—and pick something to learn. These episodes will be very SHORT. That is, around 5-10 minutes to make sure that you get a good answer as quickly as possible.

 

TOPIC:

 

In this podcast, you are going to learn the answer to one of the most commonly asked questions about resumes.

 

How long should it be?!

 

Why is this such a hot topic?

 

What are some example scenarios of a one-page resume vs. a two page resume?


The core concept: The resume should be as long as it needs to be — but short enough to remain interesting.

 

Please note: that there are a few industries and positions that would expect you to submit a longer resume. Three examples:

·      Federal resumes that ask you about everything you did

·      Academia. (Cover letters even)

·      IT Consultant positions that want to look at detail of all your past work.

 

If you would like us to evaluate your resume and assess a proper length, please submit your resume to projects@letseatgrandma.com

This is...the Let’s Eat, Grandma podcast number 9 – this is Just-Ask-Chris Minisode #1.


We are going to take commonly asked job search questions, break them down, and give you the information as one in-depth answer.

 

Why a minisode? We wanted to give you another way to learn complex information. We take the complex information with a million different rules (like resume writing in the English language) and give you a way to digest it easily. Little resume snacks if you will.

 

We are doing this for those go getters who are hyper learners. So those who really want to take a moment in their life—walking to work, waiting in line at the doctor’s office, whatever—and pick something to learn. These episodes will be very SHORT. That is, around 5-10 minutes to make sure that you get a good answer as quickly as possible.

 

TOPIC:

 

In this podcast, you are going to learn the answer to one of the most commonly asked questions about resumes.

 

How long should it be?!

 

Why is this such a hot topic?

 

What are some example scenarios of a one-page resume vs. a two page resume?

#8) Three Things Hiring Managers Want to See in Your Resume #8) Three Things Hiring Managers Want to See in Your Resume Wed, 29 Aug 2018 22:51:12 GMT 26:05 5b872360e47e4aa3613167fe no https://www.letseatgrandma.com full 1 8 Have you ever wondered what hiring managers actually want to see on a resume? Let’s Eat, Grandma interviewed 3 experienced hiring managers here in Austin to get everything – the good the bad and ugly-- of the resumes they receive.

 

Questions:

 

1.)  What makes hiring managers put candidates in the YES pile?

2.)  What makes hiring managers throw resumes in the TRASH?

3.)  Where do the majority of new hires come from?

4.)  What percentage of cover letters do hiring managers actually read?

5.)  Do recruiters prefer PDF or Word Doc?

6.)  How long do hiring managers actually spend on each resume?

7.)  What’s one thing that someone said during an interview that immediately disqualified them? (If you don’t have a good story, then you can make it hypothetical like what would turn you off in an interview.)

8.)  If you could give one piece of advice for everyone in the room who is looking for a job, what would it be?

We are resurrecting The Career Warrior Podcast (formerly LEG Job Seeker's Podcast) for good (in honor of this Easter season)! The goal of the podcast series is to spread best job seeking practices to those hunting for their dream job. We will be (hopefully) posting once a week due to the success of our last podcast.


Listen to this podcast and we will touch upon the emotional challenges of changing careers –desperation, anxiety, loneliness-- as well as how to overcome them. We will also touch upon the logistics of a career transition, and what it takes to be successful. I brought on Clara Chorley, a top-producing Career Coach.


Here are some fun facts about Clara:

•Clara Chorley has worked and traveled through 44 countries and 5 continents, with organizations as diverse as (fortune 500) Ernst and Young - and the (humanitarian non-profit) Millennium Village Project in Africa.

•Much more than just a careered businesswoman, Clara has founded her own business Clarity Unlimited to help professionals find jobs and build businesses that fulfill them so they can have the impact they want to with their lives. •After a long, winding journey through more than 10 careers she finally figured out her own purposeful work, and by sharing her story, has been helping other professionals do the same — but in much less time — for the last decade.


To connect with Clara on the phone, please follow this link: https://www.clarityunlimited.com/coaching-for-leaders/


You will want to listen to this podcast if any of the following applies to you:

oYou can’t settle on a clear direction or job to pursue

oMotivation is low and you’re unsure how to get moving again

oYou believe a dose of inspiration, energy and positivity would be good!
