Most people, no matter what job they seek or how long they've been part of the working world, make the same mistake when it comes to the resume-writing process. They forget -- or simply don't know how -- to develop their resume from the employer's point of view.
"Employers want to know several things about you within seconds of glancing at your resume. Your job, then, is to be hit-them-over-the-head obvious about who you are, what job you're seeking and what you have to offer them," says Louise Kursmark, a certified professional resume writer and author of "30-Minute resume Makeover."
