Creative Ways to Improve Your Resume

"Stuck in a resume rut? Here's how to review and revise with fresh eyes.

Career experts are unanimous on the importance of customizing our resumes for each new job we apply for. But for many of us, when it comes to revising our resumes, the first question is "How?"

It's easy to get stuck in rut when you're working with material you know so well. So here are some ways to take a fresh look at revising your resume."

One resume tip I'd heard on a talk radio show program recently was not to bother taking up valuable resume space with "References Provided Upon Request" it is assumed that you will provide references.

Another was not to bother listing pc skills which are widely held such as being familiar with word processing, spreadsheets, browsers and such.

Any resume tips folks care to share?
