Welcome to hope: The partnership of Monster.com and Office.com, a career center for job seekers, powered by Monster.com. You need résumés? Office has more résumé templates than there are stars in the western sky. (Astronomers/Astrologists: This is just an exaggeration; no need to write to me.) You need to post that fabulous résumé somewhere? Go straight from where you got your résumé template to a Monster page that will tell you how and show you where. You want to know how to interview smartly, market yourself wisely, and write the best résumé your future employer has ever had the privilege to read? Baby, you're in the right place.
Let me give you a quick example of what we can offer on the Office side of things:
First you start with your résumé and yes, I know—the thought of listing your education, work experience, and of course, all the wonderful qualities you have that make you oh-so-very-suited for the job (heck, whatever the job is) is daunting, distasteful, and frankly, a real drag. Templates for CVs and résumé can be found all over the web but consider this:
And now all I can really say is head over to the Career Center and see what's over there. Just as a teaser...
Finally, listen, in writing this post for today, I've experienced an acute and unfamiliar feeling of tenderness toward those of my readers who really need the kind of help the Career Center offers. That's why this post is so...straightforward and not very silly (or crabby). It's a difficult time for working folks who aren't working right now; I imagine the stress and worry of being out of work can be overwhelming. And whether or not you are secure in your job, we're all in this together, you know?
All of us in Office (and particularly my buddies and compatriots who write all the Office Blogs) do hope that things turn around for you soon. Will you stay in touch and let me/us know?

As the person that reviews resumes and does the hiring at our company, when using a template, make sure that your information is consistent. If you use a period after one bullet point, you better do it for all of them or I will be worried when you tell me you are detail-oriented. Cover letters are a must--and yes, Microsoft has some great templates! I also agree that you need to discuss your job duties with your previous employment. We can't read your mind to figure out what you did in your prior jobs.
@RSnethen -- Thanks for an "insider's" point of view; I really appreciate it. Yes, consistency is so important, I totally agree. Noticing every little thing lets the employer know you're detailed-oriented and take pride in everything you do, down to the smallest detail. Thanks again for your comment.
