25 RESOURCES to help you update your CV or Resume ~ a Career Management Essential Task

One of the key Job search or career progession documents that everyone has or should have is a Resume (1 page summary of your qualifications and work experience)…or the slightly longer CurruculumVitae /CV (2-3 pages summary of your qualifications, work experience, also your interests or community work and references).

Below are links to a lot of articles and a free online course you ca  take to help you. Do note that for the course, if you want a certificate you have to pay for it. I think for this task, it is not worth it. Just go learn and apply the lessons, the templates and tools provided as part of your career development task.
