Create a professional resume with library’s resource


Creating a resume from scratch can be a real chore. It takes time gathering work history dates, job descriptions, and educational information and then putting it all down on paper. The library can help with the last step; dressing it up to make a good first impression. All it takes is using a new resume program on the Bossier Libraries website called Cypress Resume.

VickieHardinCypress will guide you through three simple steps to create a professional looking resume. First, select a resume style: Strictly Business or Editor’s Choice. Fill in the required fields. Go to step two and plug in the job title you are seeking. Step three, choose a pre-written job statement. Do not forget the cover letter and reference page.

Technical Services manager Teresa Rice says, “If a patron is in the library, they will not need a login. However, you will want to create a user profile.” Doing this will enable you to make changes to the document or even remove it at a later time. You can also publish your resume to the Web if you like.

Working from your home computer using your library card, you can access the resume program from the library’s homepage at www.bossierlibrary.org. Click on the link on the main homepage to get started.

As with many things going the extra mile will increase your chances of success. Book it to the Bossier Libraries to get started on a winning resume.
