For your Business
It’s extremely hard to find a job these days! The market is slow, the economy is bad, and the competition has never been so fierce. To get a job you will have to out do the competition and stand out of the crowd. The following resumes go against everything my business teacher has taught me. She told us never to provide a picture of yourself on the resume, and never have any kind of clip art or icons.
