Commit Resume Grand Theft

Often there's a fine line between being inspired and stealing. Our version of "grand theft" is actually "inspiration" that doesn't come close to crossing that line.

There are two great places for inspiration.

Other resumes

Other resumes as inspiration is a pretty obvious concept. Certainly use them for the creative element about what to say, but be careful about how they say it. Does the resume follow best practices such as PARs and SARs? Looking at other resumes on this site is a good start.

Job listings

Elswhere on this site, we recommend modifying resumes to mirror the specific job, but job listings in general can also be very useful. They contain personality traits that you may want to use in your profile and list tasks that may not have occured to include. Sometimes, they can even trigger a memory about an accomplishment.

Go to the major job boards and look for your perfect job today and where you want to be five years from now. Don't worry about location since these jobs are just for inspiration. It may also help to look at resumes from different professions to help you think out of the box.
