On my way to work one day, I happened upon a large envelope. Inside, were about half a dozen resumes. They were not very good — poorly written and not much for content. So a couple of co-workers and I decided we would help the kid out.
We rewrote his resume — reworked the structure, concentrated on transferable job skills. We even gave him a couple of real references. Hopefully they’re not too surprised when they’re called. Then we gave the resume a more appealing layout, printed out half a dozen copies and mailed them back to the kid.
Good luck with the job hunt.
