A few years ago my cousin, who was graduating from college asked for my help with his resume. He had done some internships but felt his experience was thin, and the job market for new grads was still quite competitive then.

Should I not mention my 2 mos. 2x of loading delivery trucks, because that is not my forte? Ever since 2015 lay off of a decade of working for same employer in administrative, office assistant and customer service, then and thereafter, most of the temporary positions were interesting and gainful experience. I... see more

Recently while talking with a #TalentRecruiter on the phone she mentioned #FunctionalResume to me and I was a little dumbfounded. I had never heard of it. She said most people prefer the traditional resume but for her the functional allowed the applicant the opportunity to showcase what they could do and had done in the past.

My question is which do you prefer? Which one has worked for you so far? Also how much is too much on a resume? How far... see more

I have been a stay at home mother and wife. I haven't worked in 10 yrs. Now I find myself at the beginning of a divorce and need to find a job.
