I am thinking that Career Builder is actually a decent resource for information, as well as searching the job posts. Through MSN, they had a “Test Your Résumé Readiness Quiz” that hits the nail on the head as far as I am concerned.
Tip of the day: I write the word “résumé” a lot. You’d think I have a macro, but I’m too lazy. Most of us HR types will forgive seeing “resume” instead of “résumé”, particularly in an e-mail, but it looks somewhat less polished. I can’t quite live with writing it that way myself. Here’s my trick (in MS Word):
Type “resuma”. It will give you a red underline for a misspelled word. Then right-click to correct and you will find résumé on the list of choices.
Now take that quiz!
