I just freshened up an older instructional page, Resumes: Top 5 Tips for Job Hunters.
I still need to update the examples, but my advice is pretty much the same as it was in the late 1990s when I posted the first draft.
- Value the Chance to Try Again
- Balance Creativity with Function
- Details, Details, Details
- Presentation Matters
- Strike the Right Tone (Don’t Undersell or Overhype Yourself)
