Regular Resume Tips

There are a lot of folks looking for work. Put yourself in a good position by having your resume in good shape to be read, and considered. Here are a couple of tips that you might find helpful:

1. Use an email address which presents a professional or at least neutral image. Avoid such names as : sweetie pie; hot4u; road racer; etc. While these may be just fine for your general correspondence, they are an immediate turn off to a potential employer looking for a conforming employee.

2. Capitalize your name correctly;

3. Don't use all caps, except possibly in the title line of the resume.

4. Read the ad, apply for the right position. Don't send a cover letter looking for dental assistant work to a job opening for an office worker.

5. Include all relevant information. Don't skip jobs, don't lie.

6. Spell Check.
