Resume Hacks

Resume Book Hunting

Aside from the tools, if you’d like to get away from those type of websites and start jamming away in Microsoft Word, here’s where you start. Copy and paste this into Google, replaced the **** with what your title is (or target title):

filetype:pdf "resume book" 2013 "****"

Here, you’ll get a bunch of results and a bunch of resumes for people who have assembled their experience for a university “resume book”. You can choose another year other than 2013 if you need more results.

Disclaimer: do not under any circumstance copy directly from these resumes. These are merely to provide layout and structure recommendations for your own resume.

This resume tip isn’t one that’s shared broadly, but I suspect it’s one that’s used often by folks when comparing resume.
