Reader’s question on resumes
Sue from Stevensville, MI wrote:
I visited a local bookstore recently looking for a decent book on resumes—only to find about 15 of them. I couldn’t figure out which one to buy and they all seemed to say something different. How do I go about sorting out what seems to be conflicting advise?
Aunt Bonnie suggests:
Sue, I can understand your confusion. What one author states with authority, another contradicts. So, regardless of whether your resume runs one or two pages, uses Arial or Helvetica, includes GPA or omits it—choose a format which best highlights your skills and accomplishments. This is just a document to get your foot in the door to that interview seat.
