Please allow me to share my sincerest appreciation and gratitude. Just wanted to let you know that I was nominated by Kim Gosselin for the ELITE Versatile Blogger Award.
I am honored and humbled Kim Gosselin receive and accept your award.
The main reason for my accepting my own nomination was to recognize some of the very lovely souls and blogs out there, and share them with others. I completely understand if you don’t resonate with following the guidelines, and/or don’t have the time to do so.
You’re still someone I want to honor! Much love, Kim http://kimgosselinblog.com/2014/11/22/thank-you-lorrie-bowden/
I had every heartfelt intention of accepting this lovely award long ago. Within days of receiving it however, my bowl of life began to overflow with commitments. Lorrie understood, telling me to, “Take my time.” No matter now many days passed, her kind heart full of love and appreciation was never far from my mind.
I am most grateful to accept this terrific award from Lorrie, a special person to many here at WordPress. If you haven’t had the chance to get to know her, please visit her beautiful blog at, http://lorriebowden.com/.
Thank you for being part of this wonderful blogging universe, and I’m looking forward to reading your posts!
Kim – I have no words, speechles – May God Bless you

Thank you. I’m humbled beyond belief. It is a real pleasure reading your blog and nominating me. You put a smile on my face to with the Sunshine Award. I’m always honored when someone takes the time to nominate me!
“I’m a real go-getter who always thinks outside the box, demonstrates thought leadership and proactively motivates myself!” If this sentence made you cringe, you’re not alone. These phrases come from the new CareerBuilder survey on the best and worst resume terms.
They surveyed 2,201 hiring managers and HR people in order to come up with the best of the best and the worst of the worst.
The Worst Resume Terms
Best of breed: 38%
Think outside of the box: 26%
Go-to person: 22%
Thought leadership: 16%
Value add: 16%
Team player: 15%
Hard worker: 13%
Strategic thinker: 12%
Track record: 10%
The Best Resume Terms
Under budget: 16%
Considering, according to this survey, the average hiring managers spends two minutes looking at a resume (and other studies have shown that number to be far lower — 45 seconds), it may be worth your time to rewrite your resume to reflect what hiring managers want to see.
But, if you’re the one doing the hiring, stop and realize your own biases, and maybe vow to spend a bit more time looking at resumes. After all, it’s not about what the resume says (unless you’re hiring professional resume writers), it’s about what the person can do for you.
While you may want immediately reject someone because they threw a word like “synergy” around, that might not always be the best course. Take a closer look and see what they’ve really accomplished. After all, your goal should be to hire the best people for your business, and that may mean people who aren’t the world’s best resume writers.
