Coconut oil is a popular oil to turn into soap specifically because it creates a rich lather. Has something to do with the fatty acids present in the oil during the soap making process.

I'm going to try the Dr. B's tea tree when my hemp almond runs out. Didn't you say that you use it as shampoo with some kind of rinsing agent? is that on the website?

It goes with the 2033 tag. I think its one of the better campaigns out there.

I use it as a shampoo, yes. I follow with their citrus rinse conditioner. Natural soaps have a high ph, which causes your hair cuticle to open up and feel tangly and waxy. The conditioner is mostly lemon juice with a very low ph to close and smooth the hair's cuticle.

I should also mention to you girls on here that you shouldn't use natural soaps on your color rested hair. Since the high ph opens the hair's follicles it causes the color to fade.

Thanks for the suggestions gents.

It def. is bullshit business speak but not much I can do about it. I'm trying to tailor my resume with key words from each job application.

Unfortunately cannot quantify most of my project work because the vast majority of our work never gets implemented.
post #10118 of 14485
the problem is, somebody would look at your resume and go "ok, i don't know jack shit about what this kid does". And just because work wasn't implemented doesn't matter, it still counts as something like "advised client through $20MM in product expantion options through new geographical markets" or some shit like that.

You're in a tough spot, GF. As a guy that's read thousands of resumes I just tune out general current buzzwords and industry specific buzzwords when I read resumes. I always look to see if an outcome is linked to the sentence, and if not, mentally file it as filler.

One page resumes, IMO, are the way to do things. For guys just starting out you don't need to fill much space and for guys with experience it forces you to not ramble and hit the highlights.

My resume is one page.

Even if I don't have quantifiable (I do, for some projects; just not for the one in question) achievements, don't employers simply look for the experience of having conducted such analyses at my level?

Also, I'm definitely erring on the side of using more buzzwords than not. I find that a lot of recruiters and HR people look for shit like that.

I don't hire analysts so don't look to me for industry specific items. I would say don't stop at saying you conducted the analysis stop at saying something about the deliverable whether it was implemented or not. I also tend to hate head hunters, from a hiring perspective, so am automatically leery of any candidate they put forth. Head hunters get paid to make a placement, and particularly at lower levels, they really don't care if it's a good fit or not as they get their fee either way.

I hire a ton of analysts and I agree with Piob's POV in general terms. I also agree that while buzzwords may catch a recruiter's eye, they tend to annoy the actual hiring leaders, at least IME.

The lack of quantifiable, implemented results is a drawback, but tbh, kind of expected if you're coming from consulting. That's why the next step for consultants is either b school or going to work for a client that already knows and likes you

gome brings up a good point, though. While many of the recommendations haven't been implemented, I can still quantify the opportunities we presented to them, so I'm going back to my old projects and quantifying bullets wherever possible.

One of the recommendations we made for one project was only for $1.2M, but another one for another project was for $62M; just added both bullets. nod[1].gif
post #10124 of 14485
I bet both of those recommendations came from someone internal whose bosses chose to retain consultants rather than listen to him or her tongue.gif

My resume is awful. It is filled with bullshit. I don't know how to put what I do into quick and easy words and such. Plus, what I do is a lot more interesting verbally talking about it than it seems on a resume.
