contemporary Resume's

Hi - I am looking to update my resume. It has been a while since I have needed to, and I figure it is a good thing to keep on top of...

However, I notice that it is the same boring old style that I have always used, and I would like it to be more "contemporary". Does any one know of a good web-site/article/example about modern resume structure?

I'll post links that I get from my own research back into this post as well so we can all update...

By the way... I would rather set my own hair on fire before I used one of the templates out of microsoft word....

Cheers

JD

Like you I hate standard formats but also recognise that people reading them like some structure cos if its too wierd they figure you will be too :)

I've looked at lots of sites/books and came to the conclusion that the key messages were:

- keep it clear and simple

- keep it to less than 2 pages

- tell people what you achieved

- make it reflect you in some way

good luck

Alan

I am for the last 7 years an independent business, change management and IT consultant. I am a former partner at PwC / Assoc Partner at Accenture, as well as a veteran of many smaller firms. I am happy to give any genuine enquiry a hand with resumes or CV's.

Dont forget it took Col Sanders 1,609 attempts [I think] to sell his famous receipt to a fried chicken outlet and he lived to tell the tale.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. As you can imagine, I have been searching dilligently for the answers, and am getting bogged down by the varied information. Paralysis by analysis strikes again.

Central issues seem to be clear:

1). Clear and concise wins the day

2). Design the resume for the reader

3). Work out what "type" of resume you want to deliver - are you selling a job related career progression, or are you selling transferable skills into a different industry...

4). Persitence is the key.. Seek feedback.

5). Quality control. NO ERRORS.

Thank you for taking the time to respond, and GH, I might just take you up on your offer. I really appreciate it.

Hi Garrett - Thanks for the offer.

I just received my Ph.D. in Organizational Theory and Behavior (Dissertation in KM in a Virtual Organization), have extensive management experience in government (currently Acting Health Commissioner for a large county in NY State) and want to join a consultant firm. My resume is boring and I need somehelp. Can you give me some advice?

John
