Current resume trends

I have been doing career coaching for many years. Just finished creating a 4 part series for people at my company that are being impacted by an acquisition and will be in the job market soon. There are a lot of resume trends people are not aware of:

3. Do not put your birth year in your email…

I felt it was a well organized work place,people oriented,clean and customer friendly. I liked the opportunity to learn different aspects of Advance Auto. My one drawback was lack of training for counter sales. The best part-time job I ever had otherwise.
