Where to Find Free Resume Advice

3 Places That Give Free Resume Advice

Professional resume services aren't the only places to find help on updating your resume. Objective advice can be had without paying for it, if you know where to look. Take your chances by bringing your resume to one or more of these places recommended by The Wall Street Journal — they're free, so you have nothing to lose.

  1. Library: According to the WSJ, your local library might offer classes on resume basics or one-on-one sessions with a staff member to help with revisions.
  2. Alumni career services: Your alma mater's career center could be a resource for resume advice. Some will interact with you in person, over the phone, or via email.
  3. Government-sponsored job centers: There are more than 3,000 One-Stop Career Centers across the country that give free career advice; find your local center at ServiceLocator.org.
