Resumes

I always tell my students that I am happy to review their resumes for them.  A difficulty with this is that once in a while, I get a student who sends it to me as an email attachment and indicates "I'll wait here at my computer for your feedback so that I can send it in as soon as possible".  I usually ask for at a couple of days to provide meaningful feedback to students. 

I have found a great article on common resume mistakes that I recommend.  After you have fixed all these problems, my review of your resume will be much easier. Remember, most recruiters and managers that look at resumes will NOT spend much time with it.  If your resume doesn't pass a quick scan, no matter how good you really are... you won't get a chance at an interview.
