Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Getting feedback on your resume is pretty easy:
- Contact the company/recruiter who may have rejected you.
"Hello, I know that you found a more suitable candidate for the position. I was hoping that you might send me some feedback on my resume, and any suggestions regarding how I presented myself in the interview. Thank you for your time, etc"
A lot of colleges, or hiring agencies will also provide resume proofing services, and even run mock interviews with you. Ask a fellow professional whom you get along with to take a look as well.
Last but not least Google is your friend :-P
Ted, if you've never applied with your resume before then I suggest asking someone who has a career in your field to take a look - hopefully someone who's been involved in hiring for their company. Barring that, anyone with recruiting experience will be able to give you pointers. Step #2 very much applies here.
The important thing is not to apply with a flawed resume and miss opportunities that interest you. It's easy enough to ask someone for advice. Best of luck!
