    Star award Resume Writing Resources

    I've noticed quite a few posts lately requesting resume assistance, so I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread with links to various resume writing resources and templates. I have also included a template for a Cover Letter and Thank You Letter. Feel free to revise as you see fit. Also, please let me know of any suggestions to improve upon these resources.

    I hope you guys find these helpful when creating or editing your own resumes.

    1) Resume Guide - contains example resumes, a huge list of action verbs, sample summaries, etc:

    2) Resume Action Verbs - additional action verb resource
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B62C7HpuIwINV3Y0WTlSUEZxaFk

    3) STAR Method - "Situation, Task, Action, Result" method of resume writing
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6...kFjV1dieWVlQ1U

    4) Accomplishment Statements & Resume Checklist - additional resources to help you write and format your resume

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6...i16aFZPWEZqVTQ

    5) Professional IT Resume Template - an effective template with explanations and recommendations
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6...WEyTmY2UVZXVkk

    6) ptilsen's Resume - I consider this to be the "golden standard" for an IT resume
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B62C7HpuIwINek1aWV9KR1U1cHc

    7) ctate CIO Resume - another example of a well-constructed and well-executed professional resume
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B62C7HpuIwINb19rQkdOMmhPMTQ

    8) Cover Letter - again, edit and revise as necessary

    9) Thank You Letter - include company name and address at the top if using snail mail

    No problem. If anyone has any recommendations on how to expand upon or improve this thread, please let me know. Perhaps this can be refined to become a sticky thread at some point.

    Also, I've always found this helpful when writing summaries or discussing my level of proficiency in certain skills/technologies: http://www.ferris.edu/HTMLS/administ...Competency.pdf

    The link aderon provided is dead, so I found a copy of the PDF file and hosted it. Here is the link:
