How to Prepare Your Resume (Your Resume Stinks!)
- What should be on my resume?
- What format should I use for my resume?
- How long should my resume be?
This week's podcast addresses a topic that many of you might be surprised about: your resume. Your resume, regardless of the baggage associated with it, is probably your most critical career management document. While it's not something you ought to leave laying around on your desk (or on monster.com, for that matter), that doesn't mean you ought to treat it like something you dust off only when you really need it. It needs to be reviewed quarterly, believe it or not.
So, in this cast we'll teach you how to prepare it, and how to maintain it. We won't talk about cover letters, or how resumes are used in the job search, because job search is only one use of your resume.
