Today's task is nice and straightforward: update your resume! Whether you're out of work or not, we all need to have sharp looking resumes that are ready to be printed off at the drop of a hat. So bring yours up to par. After you're done updating it, share it with us.
Also, I'm sure many of you have some great additional resume tips. Share your wisdom with us!
I had a job scare not too long ago, so I had mine updated, but spent some more time on it today (should've really tomorrow, but I couldn't wait).
I do need to really update the stylization of mine, since I do work in the design field. Right now it is simple, but not too simple. I need to create something more cutting edge, but still keep within the lines of acceptable.

Especially now, even the newest version of Microsoft Word uses a new file extension: ".docx" and some computers won't be updated enough to open them. Just an FYI.
