Truth be told, I know next to nothing about writing a resumé, but I came across a great article that just made a whole lot of sense to me. 5 Reasons Your Resume Doesn’t Stand Out is a concise article you should read if you’re slowly coming to the realization that your resumé looks a lot like everyone else in your TAP class. The author is a Career Development Specialist at MIT, so it’s not necessarily geared towards a military crowd, but its definitely worth five minutes of your time. Some of the examples are eerily similar to what you would find on a well written military evaluation, but its a great resource either way. I’m gearing up for my first “military friendly” job fair in a couple of week, so I’ll let you know if these tips actually worked for me. More to come!
