Six Steps to a Blockbuster Resume
A resume has one purpose - to market your skills, achievements, professional background, academic history, and future potential to a prospective employer.

Reverse Chronological vs. Functional Resumes
There are three basic types of résumés--reverse chronological, functional, and a combination of the two.

Executive Resumes
Executives tend to have many relevant past positions, credentials, achievements, published articles, speaking engagements, community service activities, and other important qualifications.

Is Your Resume On Target?
The most qualified candidate is not always the one to get an interview - the one with the strongest resume is.

Upgrade Your Resume
Sometimes a little goes a long way. With a few minor adjustments, your resume can be improved to the point where it ends up in the callback pile as opposed to the trash bin.

Who's Reading Your Resume?
It seems that everyone is an expert when it comes to resume writing.

5 Hot Resume Tips
The purpose of a resume is not to land you a job, but rather to get you in the door for an interview.
