In order to get your dream job, you have to send out a résumé. Think of it as a profile that managers will look at, and will be the basis on whether or not you get hired.

We’ve all seen numerous ways on the “correct” way to create your résumé. But as you gain more experience and skills, it's tricky to know which information to add in, and which to leave out.

So, if you want to give your résumé a good upgrade, keep scrolling down for our tips and tricks to creating an up-to-date and polished CV!

Update your photo

If you’ve already been working for a few years, your résumé’s photo shouldn’t be your college graduation picture anymore. Try taking ones where you’re wearing professional attire with a clean makeup look, and your hair away from your face so that hiring managers can get a good look at your gorgeous face!

Make use of bullets

The best way to get a hiring manager’s attention is with concise words. Save your detailed job stories for your interview and only put what matters most in your résumé!


Change your format

Just like your photo, you should also change up your résumé’s format every now and then. Polish it, delete a few things, add something else, and more. You can even make a creative, infographic-esque résumé to really catch the reader’s attention!


Be a grammar Nazi

When it comes to your résumé, proofreading is extremely important. A clean and polished CV, with correct grammar and spelling, can show that you have an attention to detail, a skill most employers love and value.


Tailor your resume

A résumé is not a “one size fits all” kind of thing. If you’re applying for a marketing job, you don’t need to put the part-time barista job you had in college anymore. The same goes if you’re applying for a job in engineering, your résumé doesn’t have to look like an artistic painting.

New season, new styles; and that’s definitely more exciting than watching the weather change from the cool days of “winter,” to warm and humid. So as we we prep ourselves for the heat of the Summer sun, it’s time to give our wardrobe a makeover! And to be honest, what better place to start than with our shoe collection!


So stay on-trend and dress up your feet with these latest shoe trends!

--------------------------


Metallic Shine



Sneakers are definitely in trend, and it relieves our tired feet from the elevated heels while keeping us fashionably grounded at the same time. Since metallics are the IN thing right now, start your collection with an eye-catching, reflective silver metallic pair of sneakers! The Athena Metallic Sneaker in silver is your go-to pair--wear it with a plain tee and a pair of jeans and you're good to go! 
 
Want something a bit sportier? Go for the Nature Breeze Jet-01 Sneaker with gold mesh and metallic linings! And if you can’t lose the heel, strut out in the Vigo Fiore Kelis-1 Sneaker with its 3-inch wedge heel.

If it is all too flashy for you, then stay basic with just a pair of white Superga!

Lace It Up



String in the new season with Privileged’s Fetish Sandal or go even higher with Machi’s Strappy Knee High Sandal! These nude pairs will make your legs look as long as the straps wrapped around your leg; and the suede will add that luxurious oomph for total shoe-spiration.

For something a little sexier, opt for a pair of black laced up pumps by Fahrenheit! If you want to raise the temperature, go for the same pair in red!

But if you’re looking for something a little more chill to complement this season’s flowy dresses and floral or bohemian prints, complete your outfit with the Qupid Archer-55 Sandal in Ash Blue!


Go Nude



You’ll never go wrong with nude. So start off your nude shoe collection with this pair of Chinese Laundry Avenue Sandal. It’ll give you the ultimate height with its 5.25-inch heel and all the support you need with an ankle strap and 1.25-inch platform.
For something a little more fun, fringe it up with Qupid’s Glee-78 Sandal with its ankle wrap fringe and chain details. If you’d like a more toned down version, go for the Glee-60X Sandal.

And if you’ve yet to hop on the new caged heels trend, then jump on the bandwagon with this Steve Madden pair – the Slithur Sandal!


Colour It Pastel



Get into the Spring/Summer trend with hues of dusty pink in this Caged Heel Sandal from Privileged. And if pink isn’t exactly your colour, then go for this muted skyblue Mark & Maddux Beck-11 Sandal that features a white based chunky heel platform.

Finally, if you’re looking to brighten up an outfit during those days when you just need a big pop of colour to make your day, then opt for this yellow pair from Breckelle’s!

Ever had one of those days when you just have to rush during the morning with tons of work piled up on your to-do list? Have that crazy, restless look showing everytime you look in the mirror?

Well, no need to worry anymore. Check out our tips that you can work into your morning habit to wipe away the stressed-out look!

--------------------------

Wear something black 



Black never goes out of style. It’s always chic and can go with almost anything, plus, it suggests a little bit of mystery and edge that makes you look elegant and always ready-to-go. If you have 2 minutes to spare, you can also throw in an accessory or a belt to match and voila! OOTD = perfection.
Messy bun is the way to go!

Put it all up! The great thing about a messy bun is that even if you’re on your way out the door, all you need is a hair tie and you’re all set. Loose strands falling to frame your face equates to elegance minus the effort. Plus, give it an hour or so, let your hair off the bun and you’ll get instant loose curls!


Add colour to those cheeks!


Crazy mornings means no time for full on makeup mode. Prevent looking pasty and sick by brushing on a little bit of blush on your cheeks to make you look fresh and healthy. No need to contour or highlight, just a touch of pink will do the trick. If you’re already out the door, give your cheeks a little pinch to get those blood vessels pumping and get a natural flushed glow.


Go red!


Okay! Hold up with all those rules about red lips! Whenever you’re feeling drained and there’s not enough time for anything, be bold and swipe those lips with some red lipstick! Trust me, you’ll feel 10x more energized! It’s like saying “I’m ready for anything!”


Stock up on some H2O!

Stress drains out your body and that’s super bad not just for your skin but for your health! Drinking some water before heading out and working on all those deadlines helps refresh your body and maintain your skin’s natural glow. Rehydration is always the key!
