Spicing Up A Resume

In this economy it isn’t always easy to find a job that is actually hiring, and even harder to land the job. However, have you thought about your resume? If not, you probably should be. It is something that should be included (even with low-level jobs). It impresses the manager.

My last job at Domino’s (yup, that was the last pizza place I worked at) the manager was quite impressed that I had a resume typed out with my application filled out neatly. Another added bonus (which he told me later) was that I dressed well, and of course having some experience in the area helped too.

My point is that even for first jobs, summer jobs, starting out jobs, or in-between jobs, a resume should be included. It can help to show who you are more that the sometimes very small application for certain jobs. It also shows the hiring manager that you care and are serious about working – just make sure the resume is edited to fit the job you are applying for.

Do any of you have any fun or terrifying job searching stories you’d like to share with me? I’d love to hear them!

Good point, I am going to be polishing mine off soon as I want to change my job within the next year.

Great tips! I have been at the same job for 13 years and hopefully I'll be here until I retire.
