Fix That Resume!
Fix That Resume! A sandwitch board can get attention. So can a stellar resume - even if your experence isnt outstanding.
Before you start work on your resume, review free resume samples that fit a variety of employment situations. These sample resumes and templates provide job seekers with examples of resume formats that will work for almost every job seeker.
Don't just copy a resume example that you like. Instead, choose your resume very carefully. Review resume examples, choose a type of resume that highlights your strengths and achievements, and review a typical resume format. Remember, your resume needs to impress the hiring manager enough so you get the interview. That means it needs to be perfect. I found a slew of workable templates that served very well by googling Resume.
Make sure you work it over with a spell check or seven, and a smart neighbor who owes you a favor. Don't look like a foolish man/woman, which is how you will look if your resume is not put together well. And remember to tell the truth!
It may be good to have several different styles of resume for more professional, or for more casuel workplaces and attitudes. And with the formats that are available, it is easy to do at your desk or at the local library.
