Resumes should be brief, organized, concise, and targeted to the position being sought. Include a portfolios of previous work if available. State past accomplishments which are put forth as plainly as possible (e.g. use numbers to describe achievements and responsibilities or practically describe the level of a skill and ability). For particularly employers, if researched in advance and if there are known openings you are qualified for, make tailor version of the resume for these jobs.

Organize the resumes and cover letters into folders to be taken along in the job search. Print plenty of resumes, 25 copies of the general resume is a good suggestion, and keep them with you. Hand out resumes to prospective employers. Hand them to other job seekers that you may meet and network with.
