If you need to update your resume, read this first!

I am just starting another job search so when updating my resume I put it in this format and it worked very well. I changed the header a little just to make it smaller, but that was about it. My girlfriend saw it and thought it was so great she asked if I could help convert her resume. Her resume used to be 10pt font/Arial Narrow/.25″ margins completely filled with text so we were not sure if it would fit. Surprisingly it fits much better and provides much more white space on the page.

Hasty edits only lead to poor quality and potential errors, and the sobering reality is that an outdated or inaccurate resume can cost you countless job opportunities.Updating your resume doesn’t have to take a long time – that’s the beauty of it.
