Résumé Need a Makeover? Join This Savvy Group!

The art of crafting an effective résumé should be taught in school since it's so meaningful in our working lives. Most of us learned how to create our résumés from online samples and campus career-counseling handbooks, but those basic examples can only help us so much.

While I'm not a professional career counselor or résumé builder, I have a keen eye for résumé blunders and have been helping my friends with their résumés for years. Think your résumé could use a second opinion? Don't let your accomplished background go unnoticed because it's lacking in presentation — join my Resume Remedy group to get my suggestions on how to bring your résumé from under the weather to perfect health. Share your résumé, minus your personal details, and I'll offer my advice on how to polish it to perfection.

I just posted mine, so anyone with some expertise, please give it a look. I've been job searching for almost 5 months now to no avail, so maybe I need to shape it up. And it's absolutely true that resumes are SOOO important but sooo little time is spent on them. They should be a high priority in high schools & college.

Awesome group! Could this group also be used to tweak resumes for career changes? One of the problems a group of us at my job has is the fact that our resumes all have teaching experience with no real specifics to other places of work. We would get hired quickly at another school but potentially not at a business!

This looks great! I work in HR and have looked at a lot of resumes, so I have always felt pretty confident about mine. Now, I am looking to leave the job that I have been at for 5 years, and where I went from HR assistant to running the show. I'm definitely looking for opinions on how to include all the RIGHT info without making it too long.

Great group, I actually write and do resumes part time for extra money for people. This seems like a great group for me and just for my knowledge. Thanks Savvy!
