"Your résumé has just seconds to make its mark." Globe and Mail

Only 6.25 seconds, apparently. So how can you make sure your resume gets in the "yes" pile instead of the recycling bin? Come book a half-hour session with one of the volunteer library Career Coaches to get some knowledgable advice on how to make your resume the best it can be.
