Love is in the air on Valentine’s Day but if you are in career transition you won’t let this day or any other prevent you from an active job search. Your commitment and determination will impact the success of your job search but if they don’t love your resume you won’t have the opportunity to find out if the decision maker will love you for the job.

Provide full contact details including home address, phone #’s, email and Linkedin addresses
Ensure work history is complete and there are no gaps in dates
