Now that you’ve signed a lease for a Tandem apartment for next year – ahem, right? – it’s time to start thinking about brushing up your resume to nail down that summer job or internship that will set you firmly on the path to success.
If you’ll be looking for something in the business field, Lifehacker.com has information about a great tool that will help you get by the first round of electronic resume-weeding. Jobscan will compare your resume to a position’s specific requirements, and help you see where you’re a great match and where you need to spend a little time padding, er, bolstering, your credits.
