Better Than Google

One of the best things about having long-standing employment is that you don't feel the need to update your resume.  Well, since you never know when opportunity will come knocking, or whether you will be out of work tomorrow, it is a good idea to have an current resume.  No one likes the chore of creating or updating a resume, but the library has a powerful tool that takes the writing out of writing a resume.  That tool is Cypress Resumes. As they say on their site, with Cypress Resumes, there is no need to compose anything, ever.
