Writing your Resume?

If you've asked more than one person how your resume should be formatted you've probably heard 2 or more different answers. This is for good reason: a resume is a reflection of you, an individual with specific experiences, talents, and views. While resume's are unique, there are certainly best practices that should be considered.

The Genesee District Library offers a free resume builder on all public computer terminals. Your resume can also be formatted and easily altered in Microsoft Word, also available on GDL computers. Print, Fax, and Copy services are available here in the Grand Blanc branch. 

If you have questions about your resume, the Business Center Librarian is happy to speak with you and assist you in formatting a resume which will best suit your specific career goals. Please see the "Reference Desk Hours" tab at the top of the page for availability. 

Lastly, I wanted to list several books which might help you in constructing your resume:

The Damn Good Resume Guide (2012)
Gallery of Best Resumes (2012)
The Google Resume (2011)
The Quick  Resume & Cover Letter Book (2011)
Resume and Cover Letter Phrase Book (2011)
Resumes for the 50+ Job Hunter (2009, Available for Download)

Choose the "Find Books" tab at the top of the page and search by title for current availability. 
There are many more relevant titles here in the Business Center, so stop by!
