As you move to a new career, I want it to be one that you will love; one that makes full use of your skill set and talents; one that fits your personality, your values and your pursuit. Your resume needs to reflect this.
Your resume can make or break your job application. Whether you need to write a new one or tweak your current version, you need to ensure that your resume stands out above the rest. Every resume is a one-of-a-kind marketing communication. It should be appropriate to your situation and do exactly what you want it to do.
