Episode 41: Revamp that resume with Hilani Ellis

You need to listen to this. We’ve done interviews about resumes before but not quite like this. Hilani gives us insider information on the reality of the job application process (from the employee and the employer’s perspectives). 

Hilani Ellis is a former Executive Assistant,  headhunter, podcast host and founder of Exceptional Admins. She is essentially a talent matchmaker and a whiz at the ins and outs of job-seeking. Honestly, I’ve never had this much fun talking about resumes!

She not only gave us killer resume tips,  but put us on to a whole genre. Listen and share with a friend !
