QUESTION: Would you please share some of your favorite resume writing and job search resources?

Edwina Martindale

Many job search resources are job-specific; Google niche job boards in your field. Be careful choosing online resume writing help; many just want to draw you into paying them and their free information is often substandard or even incorrect. My go-to reference is Modernize Your Resume by W. Enelow & L. Kursmark. Reputable online job boards also offer resume help: LinkedIn, Indeed, etc.

The website of the National Resume Writers’ Association is an outstanding resource for both career professionals and the job-seeking public, precisely because it maintains uncompromising standards. Information on the site is generated through a non-profit, volunteer, member-driven organizational structure whose mission emphasizes industry research, professionalism, excellence, and best practices

Laura Slawson, The Creative Advantage Freelance Writing Service, LLC

My go-to resource for writing is “The Best Keywords for Resumes, Letters and Interviews,” by Wendy S. Enelow and Louise Kursmark. Two other writing resources I recommend are the “Ladders Resume Guide 2019,” written by Marc Cenedella, and the “Gallery of Best Resumes,” by David F. Noble, Ph.D. For job searching, I recommend “5 Steps to Rapid Employment,” by Jay A. Block.
