Updated on May 29, 2012

As I wrote on my Hub about resumes and presentation letters (which you should definitely check for great tips on presentation letters and CV's) there are standard resumes for everyone to just fill in.

But, there're some jobs that required a little bit more... You really have to stand out, to leave your mark on the person who's going to see it!

Resumes are Sales Letters

If the job you are applying requires a "normal" resume, you can still add some flavour to it, so you can stand out!

Did you get that? Your resume is an opportunity for you to "sell" yourself into a job interview.

So, check out this Amazing Resume Creator that will help you get a job in a much faster way! But one thing you have to keep your mind on, even with all this help you will need to work on your resume and job search!!! We can't just give you a written resume, it doesn't work taht way...

Start following these tips and I bet you'll have sucess! Just post here your comments and tell me how it goes!

Where can I read more about it?

There's lots of places were you can find more information about writing resumes, really good resumes!

On the left you can find really good books and programs from Ebay! And below I present you other fantastic books from Amazon. All of this at a distance of a click and from the confort of your home!
