  1. Hey! I'm not in NJ (more like Canada) but I'm sending you get-a-great-job-quick vibes from up north. Losing your job majorly sucks. Been there, done that, got the resume out. Hope you find something soon!

  2. visit riptheresume.com - you may find such helpful - market is very competitive at all levels in almost all industries. Good luck too you.

  3. Set up a LinkedIn account, Friend me - transcribe it quick and we'll see what we can do.

  4. I'm in Texas, but I have re-tweeted your resume on Twitter to my almost 3K followers. I hope it helps; I figure it can't hurt.

    For what it's worth, some suggestions: I think your objective statement needs to be more pointed. I can't figure out from it what kind of work you actually want to do. Second, I realize your tasks at Walgreens are varied but they're not likely to result in bringing you a good paying job. I would de-emphasize this position and write more about jobs where you used your computer skills and college education. I'd also like to know what you learned at the Cittone Institute. Was it some kind of computer training school? Were you certified in something? Finally, are you willing to relocate? Since you're posting on twitter, this would be helpful to know! Good luck!!!

  6. What type of job are you actually looking for? You mention something about social media, but I don't see where you list any experience in that area. Please do yourself a giant favor and invest some $$ and get a resume coach to redo your resume. You need every advantage in this economy. Good luck!

  7. I think your Walgreens management experience will come in handy while seeking employment because being an EXA shows team leadership and emcompasses a wide variety of tasks. I would make some changes to your objective because it needs to state exactly what sort of position you are seeking and I would restate your tasks at Walgreens differently. That being said...since this comment wasn't about re-constructing your resume. Looking for employment right now is difficult...don't give up...even when you feel discouraged!!! I'm in the same boat. Randomly send your cover letter and resume out to places. Most of my interviews were set up because I randomly sent my CV to agencies that were not even looking into hiring someone. I'm sure you're already registered with tons of job sites. Try USAJobs ...it's amazing the variety of positions the federal government is hiring for...plus check state agencies. Good Luck! And try not to be discouraged.

  8. I agree with Colleen. I'd also add, unless you can be very specific about what "Social Media" means in regards to what kind of job you're looking for, I'd strike that off completely. Are you a programmer who is familiar with various social media SDK's? Have you written a facebook application or twitter client? If not, and you can't explain how social media fits in with your work, it screams to me, as a potential interviewer or employer, that you're going to spend large parts of your day wasting time on facebook or twitter. Honestly, if this resume was handed to me as is, it'd go right into the circular file. Sorry.

  9. Cool. Your resume is impressive. I hope to make my own as impressive as this. I am a fresh graduate student and I need inputs on making one too. That's the reason I'm here though checking out sample resume.

  10. This is incredible advice! I can't believe no one's commented yet. Very insightful and
