A customer in the chair next to me at my hair salon shared this resume template with me. It made a huge difference in my job search so I thought I would share. Be sure to edit it slightly for each position you apply for, using keywords from the job description, or you may not make it past the Applicant Tracking System software in a lot of cases. I know it's discouraging but you've got this! Good Luck!!
