20 steps to a better LinkedIn profile in 2020

We’re trained at it – and we’re good at it. But how often do we apply those skills to building our own personal brands? For many of us, it’s nothing like as often as we should. I know that there’s more that I could be doing to build my own profile on LinkedIn – and I know that I’m not alone. We don’t get around to it because we’re busy, and because it can sometimes feel selfish or egotistical to invest time in marketing ourselves. The LinkedIn profile page is the foundation for your personal branding. Webinar Outreach Programme.

Why the Hybrid Resume is the Best Resume Format. The hybrid resume, also called a combination resume, is a combination of the chronological resume format and the functional resume format.

Why the Hybrid Resume is the Best Resume Format

The hybrid resume highlights the job seeker’s skills and achievements section first (like a functional resume) followed by work experience (the focus of a chronological resume format). While the chronological resume format seems a bit too traditional to some modern job seekers, the functional resume format is typically not preferred by hiring managers. Think of it like Goldilocks and the Three Bears–the hybrid resume is the resume format that’s “just right.” The Benefits of a Hybrid Resume Format Highlights skills and accomplishmentsTakes the pressure off of work history/gaps (but doesn’t hide it)Top-loaded style shows hiring managers the most valuable information firstThe neutral format appeals to both traditional and non-traditional hiring managers.

Getting your research into the European Parliament - Author Services

That’s because it can help Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and stakeholders scrutinize proposals from the European Commission, the ‘government’ of the EU, examine pressing issues of the day and pass laws. The societal challenges that they deal with are increasingly complex, so policy makers need to rely heavily on new, reliable and accessible knowledge. At the same time, getting research into parliament is important for individual researchers. It’s one of the ways to demonstrate the societal impact of their research, which is high on the agenda of universities and research funders and will be even more important in the years to come.
