Update-ResumeI get calls and notes from job seekers asking me about all kinds of crazy plans to get certifications, take classes, pay job placement agencies, or otherwise spend a lot of money trying to get a job.  What do I say?  One, never pay anyone who says they can place you in a job; and two, before you invest a huge amount of time and money into something you may not need, look at the simple fixes first--like your resume.

Look at this note I got from Rebecca:

Hi Peggy,

Just a note to say THANK YOU for your help. Since I sent my newly revised resume, my phone is ringing and I am also receiving offers from e-mails for jobs. You Are GREAT!

God Bless,

Rebecca McConnell

She revised her resume and her phone started ringing.  Does your resume need a revision, too?

If you do these things, your resume will attract much more attention from hiring managers / employers, and you'll get interviews.
