At some point in our lives, the majority of us will be forced to hunt for a job. It’s tedious, it’s time-consuming, and it’s often heartbreaking, to continue sending hope out into the world and get nothing but radio silence – or a chorus of “no thanks” back in return.

In this day and age, when at least some of every recruiting process is handled by a computer, it’s more important than ever to know what works, what doesn’t, and what could make your resume stand out from the rest.
