Make your Resume Sparkle

More on resumes. As the first link above suggests, most employers or recruiters spend about six seconds scanning your resume. (Yes, they really do read this fast--or at least, check to see that the relevant bits are available, meaning that your resume is worth looking at a bit longer.)

The second link has some good advice on how not to fade into the crowd of people who are applying--ways to reword generic stuff, and foreground what is unique and interesting about you (rather than merely aligning you with the thundering hoardes of people who have similar credentials).
