One comment:

  1. This is a great service, and I highly recommend using it! I used it at the 2006 AlA annual conference, and it was quite helpful (see my blog here [5th paragraph down]).

    One of the biggest takeaways from my review was to personalize my resume for the specific job (moving around info, making certain things bold, etc.). This, of course, is in addition to a very personalized cover letter.
