The items you need to get the most out of your next event.
I go to a lot of local networking events, at least 1-2 per week, and it isn’t rare for me to attend 3-4 per week. It used to be that on the morning of an event, or the night before, I’d prepare a bag of goodies to get maximum benefit. Now, I just keep an event bag stocked so that I can quickly throw in a few things and go.

When was the last time you applied for a job by fax?
My first resume in the early ’90s was typed on what hardware maker Smith Corona called a “personal word processor”. It definitely processed my words!
It was a computer keyboard attached to a printer the size of a small suitcase and it seemed to weigh a ton. The keyboard had a protective cover that flipped upwards and back, exposing a small monochrome computer screen.
(Back then, digital screens were usually black characters on a beige or green background but I’ll never forget how the Smith Corona had blue characters instead of black. I used to turn it on just because I liked seeing that novelty.)
The machine had a typewriter mode which worked as you’d expect – each letter printed as your fingers touched the keyboard – but I don’t think I ever used it for work, it would waste too much paper.
Instead, I would use the more computer-like word processor mode where whatever I typed appeared on screen and could also be saved to a diskette. I think it even had a simple auto-save mode too.
At the time, it was very cool as a “new age” typewriter and I was so productive with it that I continued using it for a while even after we bought our first PC.
While you wouldn’t now want to go back to the days of typewriters and whiteout for your job search documents, other tools that date back to that era are still useful today because few other job seekers are using them.

Many recruiters prefer one page resumes, so use yours most effectively.
The one page resume portfolio is a 6-panel pamphlet that shows your resume when folded and your work portfolio when unfolded.
How does it work?
The image of a French print designer’s resume portfolio shows 3 different views. From left to right:
1) Front view of the resume portfolio, slightly open. You can see the designer’s logo and contact information. Notice the vertical bar on the right side of the inner panel, where the text reads “curriculum vitae” with a right arrow and “portfolio” with a left arrow pointing inside.
2) Partially-open view of the portfolio. If you followed the left arrow and continued unfolding, this is what you’d see before you’re done. The panel with the arrow bar folds outwards, meaning that there’s actually more room for portfolio highlights inside.
3) Resume details. Following the right arrow will have you flip over the pamphlet, leading to the actual resume content.
