It has been a long time since you have put together a resume; after all you have been stuck at this dead end job for nearly a decade. Finally, though, you are itching to get out and find something that suits you better. Maybe you can find something that is relevant to the career you focused on in college. Opportunities are out there, but they will not all come your way. So you need to make this chance, maybe your last chance, to change your path.
You have an all-in-one Canon printer that you purchased early last year. You bought it mainly because it prints excellent pictures, and you have had so many just waiting on your memory card. Your multi-function printer purchase may end up being the best couple hundred dollars you have ever spent.
Now, it is time to make the resume. If you are not familiar with the new formats, find some templates on the internet and choose which one looks the best to you. Once you have your template, start filling in all of your information, including education, work history and any information that it might be important for potential employers. Now here is where the all-in-one capabilities give you an edge over other job-seekers. You can print out some copies, even designing a border, and the pages will look crisp and professional. You can even add color if you find it appropriate.
Instead of leaving the house and dropping off your resume to various places, your Canon printer gives you the ability to fax those sheets to businesses with fax machines. You can scan the resume and send it in emails to just about anybody. You can even scan your Drivers license and Birth Certificate to avoid those requests when you sit down for the actual interview. Thanks to your multiple purpose printer, you are leaps and bounds ahead of the game, and one step closer to catching your dreams.
