The art of crafting an effective resume should be taught in school since it's so meaningful in our working lives. Most of us learned how to create our resumes 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 resume builder, I have a keen eye for resume blunders and have been helping my friends with their resumes for years. Think your resume could use a second opinion? Upload your resume without your personal information (or private message me) and I'll offer my advice on how to polish it to perfection.
