Tips For Avoiding The Resume Black Hole

Many job seekers spend countless hours writing, polishing and blasting their résumés to dozens of companies. Then they wait and never hear a thing. Here’s how you change that and ensure your résumé is seen:

1) Have someone proofread your résumé.

2) Keep it simple. Avoid graphics and logos  that may “clog” how an applicant tracking system reads your resume.

3) Research the company’s hiring process.

4) Network and use your connections.

Hello! I've got a question! I really want to work at a herp store (mostly reptiles and some amphibians) that is fairly near me. I'm finally of age, and checked around and they seem quite reputable. My dad, however, is worried about what kind of communicable diseases one can get from being in close contact with a lot of herps for long periods most days of the week. I'd definitely be cleaning cages, misting, and doing some handling. I'm 18 with a mediocre immune system, but never scabby hands.

There are only three real risks. The first is salmonella, which is prevalent in reptiles. The second is developing an allergy very quickly because of the level of contact, but that is very rare. And the third, and the most serious, is becoming too cool, which can affect your ability to enjoy life, your social functions, and your mood. So I urge caution.

Scientists of Tumblr...

I need to hear all your wonderful advice and personal experiences again. I want to hear any and all opinions on this. I take part in an outreach programme specifically aimed at high school kids, and a big part of it is letting them ask questions about a career in science, but also providing advice and perhaps answers to questions they didn’t know to ask.

We have a good range of advice and stories here, but naturally, we want more. So, to try and get some advice from this great community, here are some starting questions:

What do you wish you had known in high school about being a scientist?

Is there anything you think would have made you pursue science more eagerly if you had heard it earlier in life?

Did you accidentally discover you liked science in college? If yes, what do you think made it exciting in college vs. high school?

Or did you always love science and know it was for you?

Seriously, anything you want to share with me will be useful. Thanks in advance tumblr!

Rant (feel free to ignore me)

I think I’m gonna have to go into art. I mean my teachers are gonna be so pissed because I’m so clever and I have so much potential but seriously… Its like, I can’t imagine a life in which I don’t do art. I think I’m always going to. Even if I did what some expect and become a maths professor, like I would still draw and write poetry and do theater on the side. But  could live without academia and mathematics. I know people see it as a soft subject but its really fucking difficult to do well. 

I am exited by art. I have grown up with contemporary stuff because of my father and I know its all pretentious and whatever, but at the end of the day, there’s such scope to explore ideas without the scientific constructs of dedicating your life to the study of one factor upon human behavior. 

I think we need intelligent people in art. Artists can be so fucking smart. I am not wasting me ability in going into art, I’m just gonna use if differently that you expect.
