Things to Consider:

When Developing a Resume...


Tweak the resume (and cover letter) every time you send it out.


Relate your skills to the job qualifications of that specific job.


Keep the resume to a page if possible, and keep it an easy read by using bullets and bolding.


Be honest, and identify your skill level accurately.


As a general rule of thumb, you do not need to go back beyond ten years of work experience.
