We already know that employers spend only seconds looking at resumes. So why not make them short, sweet and to the point.
That’s what Dawn Siff did.
And although she doesn’t directly tie her Vine resume to the success of her recent job search, it makes her stand out.
After watching her short clip, you’re sure to remember her as “Deadline Jedi.” What will you be remembered by?
Take a look at her infographic and the story behind her job search.

Our #BMSocial Team has taken The Branding Muse to new heights and we are so happy to have grown our little family. My interns mean so much to me because they help my visions become reality. I cannot do everything by myself and I am just grateful that I have such hard working young women by my side.
Now, we would like to diversify, so fellas don’t be shy now! You can apply too. We are really seeking someone who will add to our culture and be able to jump on in with suggestions and ideas. A self-starter who doesn’t need much direction and is impeccable with deadlines is what we need. We have a lot to get done, a lot to laugh about and little time. Sounds like you?
We are now accepting applications for interns and brand ambassadors this summer. Interested? Visit: http://www.thebrandingmuse.com/internships.html and ask our current interns about their experience.
