As mentioned elsewhere on this site, I've been working as the "Resume Specialist" for Microsoft's My Resume Talks campaign. You can find the official site on Facebook:
A key component of the "My Resume Talks" program was a sweepstakes in which winners received a free resume consultation. I collaborated with Microsoft to design the consultation process, and then reviewed resumes for hundreds of winners. It was a great experience, particularly as I received a bird's eye glimpse of resumes from across the country, from college students to baby boomers.
As the campaign is in the final stages (the deadline to enter the sweepstakes has passed), I took the advantage of the opportunity to write up some of my findings. Click below for a free, downloadable PDF:
