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.
