(MoneyWatch) As someone who’s written about careers for a very long time, I get a lot of people asking me to please tell them why their resume isn’t landing them a job. In fact, I got the following email this morning:
I read your article about how to write a resume that would get a job interview and liked it very much. I am a recent MBA graduate and have started looking for a job in July. I have applied for about 44 job postings and have not received not one reply — not even a comment. I really appreciate your help. Could you please have a look at my resume and tell me you impression?
I would not have asked you if I didn’t feel stuck. Your kind help is highly appreciated.
