Resume tips that get the job done

Lots of good resume writing advice in this post from Daily Writing Tips. A sample:

10. Do not include “no kidding” information

There are many people that like to include statements like “Available for interview” or “References available upon request.” If you are sending a resume to a company, it should be a given that you are available for an interview and that you will provide references if requested. Just avoid items that will make the employer think “no kidding!”

Also recommended: proofreading. So if you're tempted to follow Penelope Trunk's advice, don't.
