Resumes: Top 5 Tips for Job Hunters

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.

  1. Value the Chance to Try Again
  2. Balance Creativity with Function
  3. Details, Details, Details
  4. Presentation Matters
  5. Strike the Right Tone (Don’t Undersell or Overhype Yourself)
