Resume Time

Hey Neighbors!

As you all know, my sons are both coming of age to seek a job.  One full-time and one a summer job.  Both are going to be writing a resume as they have done some prior jobs for short periods of time.  I truly believe a well written resume can make the difference in being hired.  Many people today don't even write a resume for the average job, they think it is only needed in "special" employment situations.  My thought is a resume is a benefit anytime!

Has anyone ever used a resume builder?  We have considered using one just to help with the general look of the resume, resume letters, and to make sure we include everything that would be considered pertinent. You know, like the cover letter, previous job experience, leadership examples, school grades, etc.

I want them to stand out when they walk in to apply.  Both my boys wear a collared shirt, and neat, clean pants and shoes.  They use their best manners, you know, like using sir and ma'am.  We have printed off  sample job applications and had them practice filling them out so there will be no surprises for them when they get started.  With the economy the way it is, and many people having trouble finding jobs, we are trying to help them look and sound their best when the fill out the applications and go in for an interview.

What have you done?  Have you ever used a company that helps with your resume?  Do you use a resume?  Leave a comment and let me know.

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Pongo, however, all the thoughts and opinions are my own.

I've never used a sevice before, but I recently read Unbeatable Resumes by Tony Beshara who has been a recruiter since the 1970s. I found it very helpful and it provided tons of examples from entry level to executive and CEO positions.

I'm going to use what I learned to work on my resume soon.

I never used a service either. Now it is recommended that resumes are only one page long. Most of the time the questions on the application gives most of the information that is needed. My job is human resources manager so I see tons of application and resumes every day. Now presentation is more important, such as a plastic cover to make it stand out.
Hope this helps.
