    lots of explanations and anecdotes which made everything easy to absorb.

    Is it a good idea to use my university email for the contact info or just a
    simple my-name gmail?

    Since you have roughly seven seconds to make a positive impression on
    employers with your resume, it’s important you perfect it. This video
    offers great tips, thanks for sharing! Your resume is a professional
    representation of you — aside from perfecting your formatting, take the
    time to double-check for spelling and grammatical errors, too. Also, always
    show your resume to those who you know will give their honest, unbiased
    opinion. It is better to have your resume critiqued by a peer than a
    potential employer. -Ali

    It’s an employers market. I’ve this format of a resume, but I’m 53 and I’ve
    been jobless for 1 1/2 months. I was terminated after 7 years with a
    fortune 500 company (HD) with top pay and several awards. D.O.L. gave me my
    unemployment that week because of the reason they put on the separation
    notice. I want a Job now, but my funds are very low. I was replaced by 2
    1/2 part timers with no experience. How should I take all of my wisdom and
    knowledge and put it into a resume according to the job
