If you’re fresh out of college, in between jobs, or even looking for a new job, the process of finding employment can be daunting. Of course, one of your greatest tools is your resume. It’s usually what employers see first. A good resume gives you a great advantage, while a poor one may result in you not getting the job. If you think you need help with your resume, here are five resources you might want to try.

1. Your college’s career services. Even if you’ve already graduated, most colleges and universities encourage alumni to contact career services. They can help you work on a resume, cover letter, and even suggest possible jobs. Don’t be afraid to contact your Alma mater; after all, they want you to succeed, since if you do, it looks good for them.

2. Professionals in your field. Maybe you want to get into the field of engineering; do you know anyone already in that field? If so, ask if they would be willing to look over your resume. Since they’re already on the job, they’ll know what is beneficial to have and what to take out (for example, saying that you had an internship at an engineering company would be good, but they might not care so much that you played flute in high school). Even just a cursory glance can be extremely helpful.

3. LinkedIn. Many companies will ask you for a LinkedIn profile as well as your resume, so be sure not to neglect your LinkedIn account. Furthermore, since it can be difficult to remember everything you’ve done, adding when you did something important can give you a variety of options to choose from when constructing your resume. LinkedIn can even help you build your resume and offers tips to help you.
