Introduction

THE PHRASE, “IT’S time to get your resume together” sends shivers down many a spine, causing headaches as well as heartaches. Graduating from college, hunting for a new, more responsible position, and losing a job can all cause nervous palpitations. It is possible, however, to be invigorated by a review of your achievements and to look forward to a challenging and rewarding future.

There is something very positive about seeing your education, experience, and achievements presented in a visually appealing document. Creating this document need not make you anxious or uncomfortable. Resume writing is not as difficult as you might think, and by following the rules and advice outlined in this book, you will be on your way to getting the job you want. The first step in this process is a well-written resume that calls attention to your strengths and skills and makes the prospective employer want to interview you. That’s really the main purpose of a resume—to get your foot in the door.

To do this, you need a great resume, one that sets you apart from your competition. Of course, times have also changed, so you need to make sure that you pay attention to keywords, consider today’s technology, and follow new methods for job seeking and personal networking. The Everything® Resume Book, 3rd Edition is designed to help you conduct an effective job search using both traditional techniques and those associated with the Web. Read and act upon the powerful ideas presented in this book to create a dynamic resume, which will inspire and facilitate an effective job search.
