Fixing up your resume

Whether you are actively looking for a job or just have the habit of keeping your resume up to date, check out the article 6 Words that Make Your Resume Suck. In reading through these words, I find that I am an offender in some areas and their rationale behind losing these words is spot on.

So don’t be responsible for reading this article – just go read it.
