Having a well-crafted resume is every bit as important in a good economy where there are plenty of jobs as it is during a recession. Competition for the best jobs is still fierce. People are leaving the positions they held onto for dear life during the recession and are now trying to get hired on at better companies with better pay and benefits. A resume done right makes a good first impression, and an excellent first impression is still the difference between getting the job and not getting it. A mediocre resume can even land you a job, but not necessarily the job you want. It would be a shame to lose out on a dream career because of an uninspired, boring resume.
