Resumes and You

Hello, fellow jobseekers and resume-writers!

If you've ever applied for a job, chances are, you've had to make a resume. Resumes are a vital part of the working world. To convince employers that YOU are the absolute BEST person for the job, your resume needs to be a clear and succinct summary of your background, experiences and skills. It needs to be well formatted and error-free. It needs to be perfect.

If you are just responding to classified ads just because they are there, you will never find a job in which you do not have to work. It is like the old adage, “Find a job you love and you will never 'work' another day in your life.” [...more click to full story]
