There's so much career advice out there these days - But what's the best? Who should you trust? It can be a frustrating and confusing process. So, what do you do? We are launching a FREE weekly web show that focuses on YOUR career questions. That's right - real career questions from our readers. Today, we will be talking about the dilemma of conflicting and frustrating resume advice. Here are two questions we received that prompted this topic:


"I keep reading conflicting reports on how a resume should look. Some say use color, others say don't. Some say have a long resume, some say keep it to a page and put more detail in your cover letter, depending on what your focusing on. Please would you give an answer to what a resume should look like, and what it should cover?" - Tara
And...
"If you ask 100 people for help with your resume, you will get 100 different ways to prepare your resume. So, how do we know the "right" way to prepare a resume?" - Margaret

According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
