Hey There!

I checked out a bunch of different resume websites to help me find a job with little luck. I then came across this post and went to some of the sites including GoGreenResumes.com. This site is amazing. I have no idea why people do not always do the things this site provides. You can put everything on the internet and then easily send it to employers; pictures, videos, and links. I was able to link all my previous work’s websites so that the firms I was trying to apply for had an understanding of where I came from. This is probably the best tool I have found to help me get from my small market jobs to the BIG OFFICES!!

I also use a (theresumebuilder.net) resume wizard, to keep my (theresumebuilder.net) resume template clean and professional. It is also a good idea to individualize your resume to the industry you’re applying to.

These are great services! I use something similar and have been very happy with the service. I host my entire professional portfolio on the site. They provide me with a free dedicated e-mail address, and they do all of the web design for me. I get a very nice custom design and all I have to do is provide them the material they put it together for me.
