That’s a great resource. I have a resume that I have been updating for the past 8 years. I think I will take a look for some fresh ideas.

I like the way you put images along with information on excellent resumes.

Great article, very helpful ­čÖé By the way, there are lots of resume building websites these days which are much easier. In addition, I don’t have to care about setting like margins, lines, and etc. Go look and find several templates you like. Thanks for your sharing!

Lynn, I must agree… unfortunately most of the great resume templates can be edited with designer tools (Illustrator, InDesign…), and not with most common ones like MS Word or even with PowerPoint…
