I am applying for a job that I really want, but I think I’m up against some stiff competition. I need a resumé that will help me stand out and get noticed. Do you have any suggestions?
I’ve been looking for a job for over two months. I have sent out some resumés, but I’m not having much luck. What else can I do?
I need a good summer job to help save for university. Is there any job search help for students who are looking for a summer job?

I am considering volunteering for a local non-profit board. Is this something that can help boost my career? Should I inform my employer before I agree?

How important is social media in job searches today? Do employers even look?
