Buy or check out from the library the book “What color is your parachute?” It’s an awesome book that will give you great advice and tips for job hunting!

Good luck!

I agree with the poster who said to mirror the words in the postings.  Not only does HR not know things like photoshop being part of the adobe creative suite, but often in the digital age resumes are scanned for certain words electronically before they ever reach human eyes.

I have a minimum of five versions of my resume and even that I’ll tweak a bit to make sure it reflects the exact words used in the posting, and of course still keep everything true… I haven’t ever had to apply for a ton of jobs, but I almost always get interviews when I do apply.
