For good resumés, read copyblogger

Copywriting is about selling stuff, usually by creating both an image and feeling within a prospect.

Resumés are about selling yourself, in as brief a space as possible.

My new best career advice: write your resume like a copywriter. You're the product. Sell it.

(How does this apply? Look at this piece on using specifics, rather than generalizations, in your writing. Now think of it in terms of the advice to list specific achievements, rather than responsibilities, in your resumé.)
