Looking back at my old resume made me cringe at how many “Don’t’s” I executed on. Looking at my new resume after making some suggested changes, I now feel more confident in my resume and the potential prospects it could lure in.

Great tips. It's good to share the resume with colleagues and get it double checked before forwarding it to the company where you're applying for job. Thanks!
