The Resume Assistant is a tool that can give you inspiration if you are having trouble finding the correct wording or phrasing for your resume. You can search for specific job titles on the LinkedIn database to see resumes from LinkedIn users. This can help you by showing you how other people have written their resumes based on similar job experiences.
