Now I know what career I want, but how do I get the job? Are there special resumes for ME? I'm looking for a job... as a teacher, an actor, an engineer, in the medical field, in real estate, in sports, in computers, in graphic design...
There are lots of books, websites, and DVDs available, giving good advice and examples of how to write your resume. They suggest tailoring the resume to the job you want--which is not always easy to do. How much simpler to find a book of resumes already focused on the career you are looking for. What about people re-entering the job market, those without a four-year degree, or those following a "different" career path?
Here are some examples you can look at. Then you can search the Toronto Public Library website and drop in at the Careers collection at the North York Central Library and see if we have something tailored for YOU!
And while you're at it, here are four more titles you can check out: Expert Resumes for People Returning to Work, Resumes for Re-entering the Job Market, Gallery of Best Resumes for People Without a Four-year Degree, Resumes for the Rest of Us: Secrets from the Pros for Job Seekers with Unconventional Career Paths.
