The job search can be really challenging for introverts. What if you are someone who can expertly perform the tasks a job requires, but you’re really not good at promoting yourself? This is why people get paid to write resumes.
If self-promotion is not in your skill set, it’s okay to ask for help. If you’re a college student (traditional or online), you might be able to get free resume reviews and guidance via student services. I interviewed a specialist with Ashford University’s Career Services team about resume do’s and don’ts, easily fixable mistakes, and what you should (and shouldn’t) leave off your resume. It’s good advice even if you finished college years ago.
The story went up this week at Ashford’s Forward Thinking blog.
