While these certainly are the most difficult economic times I’ve experienced in my lifetime, it’s refreshing to be involved in the startup world where I see self-starters consistently act on their creative and entrepreneurial desires to launch a business. Addressing real problems, I’m always pleasantly surprised at the ingenuity I come across.

The area that I found the most useful, in addition to the resume builder, was the section containing articles. While reading the “How Not To Start Your Cover Letter” article, there were a number of useful pieces of advice regarding the cover letter.
