Resumes

Know your product. Great advice for a sales rep. But critical for a job seeker. A sales rep can say "I don't know the answer to that, but I'll find out and get back to you." You can't. The resume is a starting point to knowing and selling your product (you), and yes, it is required. But no, it's not magic and no, it won't get you the job. Yet without a good one, it could keep you from getting the job (or from getting the interview).
