Today’s post: how to make your resume stand out, from U.S. News and World Report:


The advice given here may seem obvious. However, whenever the English Department posts an ad for a new faculty member, I am surprised at the number of people (yes, holding or close to holding a Ph.D.! in the premier field for language use!) who have one or more of the problems mentioned in this short, sweet, to-the-point article.

I should also mention that this post comes from a group I've joined on LinkedIn, a really superb place to get advice and information about your career, the job hunt, and anything professional. If you haven't yet joined LinkedIn, consider doing so now--it's easy and fast, and you can fill in your profile a little at a time.
