You must have a top-notch resume in order to be considered for any job you think is worthwhile.

But before you dive in, read these few articles:

Write your own resume or cv

Writing your own resume can be difficult to do confidently without at least a little help. But it is possible. The Write Your Own Resume section lists tools to help you do it yourself.

Writing a great resume isn’t as easy as you might think. And anything less than a great resume can be a costly mistake.

I really can’t recommend strongly enough that you get help from somebody who has written hundreds (maybe thousands) of resumes, and knows what works and what does. I encourage you to hire a pro, but know enough to tell whether the product is any good.

The Hire A Resume Writer section can point you to best-of-breed help.

Changing careers can be daunting. Tell me about it – I’ve done it twice! It can be frustrating as you try to break into an arena where you don’t have exactly the credentials most other folks do. What the heck do you say on your resume?!

Fortunately, there are people who answer that question for a living (phew!). Here are the best career change resources I’ve found on the web.
