Resume Tip: Social Media

For the most part, one should leave social media information off of your resume.  However, more and more frequently we are searching online to get as much information about candidates as we are able.  Make sure that you stack the deck in favor of recruiters and employers finding a strong presence that makes you look dynamic and engaged.   Remember that setting your profile as “private” does not mean that employers are unable to see your main profile.  Post a professional photo, stay away from posts that are too political or religious, and make sure that you are adequately plugged into the industry by sharing interesting news.  Your social media presence should support your resume.  You won’t get hired because of your social media presence; however, you could be eliminated from contention if employers or recruiters do not approve of what they find.

Excel Tips: Use a Named Range in a Formula in Excel

One major convenience of a named range is that you can use it a formula instead of a set of cell addresses. Press F2 to open the formula bar, start writing or editing your formula, and place the cursor where you would normally use cell addresses. On the Formula tab in the Ruler, click on Use in Formula and either select one range name from the dropdown menu or select multiple names from the Paste Name dialog box shown here.
