Resume Writing Round-up

My friend Carroll, who works in corporate placement, suggested it was time to update my resume. I listened to her ideas and then poked around on the internet for other tips and guidelines. Thought I'd share with you some of the helpful sites I found:

10 Easy Ways to Improve Your Resume
How to Write a Resume.org (including good free resume samples)
How to Write a Masterpiece of a Resume
Resume Wiki (includes an excellent resource page)
Resume Tips Online
Action Verbs for Your Resume

Also, enter the search term "resume" at Mediasite to find several videos, including a three hour workshop. And for job-hunters, Simply Hired and Indeed are two of my favorite job-search engine. Thanks to David for letting me use his photo in this post.

Update -
A ton of other samples are resume writing tools here at Resumagic. Also, this AskMeFi post has good advice and more links.

sorry to ask this here but… I really love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download somewhere, or is it a custom theme you had made? Soon i will be launching my own blog, however i’m not great with designs but i do like the style of your site so it would be excellent if i could find (or buy) something with a similar look as my last designer cannot finish my site. Thanks! Please come visit my site organic jewelry when you got time.
