Your Resumes and Interviews are ads! Do they work?

Does your resume work?

I look at lots of resumes, bios, and business websites. Some resumes are making me dizzy. I am so distracted by extraneous information, charts, and unusual layouts, I don’t know what to read. It's clear to me that these resumes are not working. What's missing is a cohesive brand.

If you know that your resume has not been an effective ad in capturing a new position, I suggest that you email the resume to me at drbarro@winwithoutcompeting.com. I will review the first 10 resumes that I receive and give you feedback. I must receive your resume no later than Tuesday, October 16th at 6PM PT.

Help is an email away!
Dr. Arlene

Clients' Praise for Dr. Arlene


Dr. Arlene Barro is a breath of fresh air in today’s tumultuous job market. Dr. Barro should have her own nationally broadcasted program: 'Dr. Arlene, The Career Guru'. Much like Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz, Dr. Barro is a charismatic expert in her field. Dr. Barro gives her clients employment hope and specific behavioral modifications using her dynamic and empowering method of personal branding. Dr. Barro coached me to a successful career change following an unexpected and difficult job loss. She gave me the skills I needed to move from a 'woe is me mindset' to an 'I can and will take charge of my future'. The lady has a gift and she wants to share it!

Patti Thrailkill -- Independent Consultant


The Readers Digest version of my story is this. I had my standard functional resume out to companies and websites that were a direct fit for my background. Most of the time I received a stall, an automated ‘no thank you’, or no response at all. Then, I contacted Dr. Arlene Barro for her to work with me to create a branding package. I resubmitted my new branding package, which included more than a resume, to those same companies that had not responded to me. Then I received emails and phone calls expressing interest in me. In the first 90-days, I had three final interviews and two offer letters. I was now in the driver seat of my own career again. I was afforded the rare luxury of cautiously choosing my next career. I credit this luxury to Dr. Arlene Barro’s Right Fit Method and learning how to build and present my personal brand.

My company was in the process of being sold, and I just started interviewing when I met Dr. Arlene Barro. She helped me identify and focus on the criteria that were most important to me, which then became the blueprint of the Right Fit position. Open to relocation, I conducted a national search which generated several opportunities. I consulted with Dr. Arlene before and after each interview as I was traveling across the country. She worked with me to identify and overcome objections and strategically follow up after the interviews, which lead to more than one job offer. I found a great job which is my Right Fit position and will continue to work with her to delineate my brand as I continue to grow as a senior executive.

Debra Wood, CPA, MBA, JD -- CFO, Truegreen Landcare


Once you truly understand branding and incorporate it into your resume and mindset, your job search and your results will start to change. Recently, I received the attention that I deserved from a potential employer. They focused on the unique words that were created to convey my brand and specialties that I had to offer. Through a series of discussions with Dr. Barro, I discovered and/or identified my key attributes and unique skills. With this information, I was able to develop my brand so that any potential employer would understand very quickly what I had to offer. Dr. Barro's unique approach has helped me to understand what I require from a potential employer. This approach will better ensure that both my future employer and I are a good fit for one another which will increase the chances for a good partnership and relationship.

Michael Conkey, CPA -- Vice President of Accounting & Finance, New Indy Containerboard, LLC


After a long career in one company and two years of retirement, my interviewing skills and brand awareness were poor. Dr. Arlene asked the right questions and had the right advice and suggestions to help me create a brand that reflected my experience, skills, and desires. As well, Dr, Arlene’s book “WIN Without Competing!” and her coaching helped me to build the interviewing skill set necessary to manage the interview and to clearly and succinctly deliver my message and brand. As a result, I was hired for a better and higher paying position than that for which I was initially interviewed. Without Dr. Arlene's mentoring, I would still be searching for a new position.

Visualize Jimmy Kimmel’s Socks Before an Interview

Firing, Promoting & Hiring YOU? Soon!


It’s the season for firing, promoting, and hiring. If you think that your job is secure, think again. By the end of the year someone else could be sitting in your chair.


What should you do and not do right now?


If you are either employed or unemployed and searching for a new position, you should:

• accelerate your search targeting early to mid-January to start your new position. Do not allow the upcoming holiday season to distract you from forging ahead.

• evaluate your resume to determine whether you have a distinct, intriguing, and recognizable brand to attract the employers’ attention in a 30 second glance.

• assess your communication skills, including your ability to read between the lines, when speaking with employers and convincing employers to hire you.


If you are employed, you should:

• not walk away from your job unless you have another position – goodbye packages do not last forever. Do not assume that you will capture the right fit job quickly.

• write a report detailing your accomplishments, not what you do. Focus on impact, results, and achievements for 2012. Submit that report in October to the person to whom you report and other key decision-makers. This report could help you retain your position as well as set the stage for a promotion.

• arrange a time to discuss your 2012 achievements with the person to whom you report. It’s very important to walk that person through the report and hear feedback on your performance.


Right now we have 3.7 million unfilled jobs. Do you know how to capture the job that is the right one for you?


Be sure to watch the three upcoming presidential debates which are job interviews. Forget the political candidates’ party affiliation. Focus on what Obama and Romney are saying. Look for distractors and objections which have a significant impact on their brands. Not sure how this works? I’ll give you an example of a blatant distractor.

On the Emmy Awards show, Jimmy Kimmel exposed his pantless legs displaying his short socks. If he had been a candidate on an interview wearing pants and had crossed his legs, the bare legs could distract the employer. From firsthand experience, it HAS distracted employers. Men should wear knee length hose! Visualize Jimmy Kimmel’s socks before an interview.
