Instead of using a simple lifetime average, Udemy calculates a course's star rating by considering a number of different factors such as the number of ratings, the age of ratings, and the likelihood of fraudulent ratings. Let me share three stories so you can understand why digital brands are so important: Story #1: Last spring I met a guy named Dave at a friend’s party. He is amazing and you have to hook him up with someone you know!

“I think it is — you’re talking about you accomplishments,” she said.

“But if you decide to minimize it in the resume, you can still use it in the cover letter.

But while in the comfortable swiveling chair of a good hair stylist, it might ease some job-search stress to get refreshed on language experts’ advice for grammar and word use in order to sound polished, as well as look polished.

One of the most common writing mistakes people make on their resume is a lack of consistency in language use and punctuation, said Mignon Fogarty, professor of journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno, and author of the New York Times bestseller, “Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing.” “It’s important to use parallel structure and bullet points,” she said.

Now imagine that the whole time you two were talking, scientists were sitting under the table transcribing the conversation.

(It's creepy, but bear with me.) By the end of the night, those scientists could tell you pretty quickly how likely it is that your date wants to see you again.

My friend introduced us and said something like, “Dave, meet Vanessa. ” I have a personal passion for matchmaking, so I was very excited to meet Dave and set him up.

After a few minutes, I was convinced that there was some giant misunderstanding. He said he had been online dating to meet people and just couldn’t get any dates.

The real truth lies in what no one ever notices—the filler words.
